River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles

By far one of the best prawn noodles I have savoured!

What makes this so special is the soup – full of flavor with strong essence of prawn stock, and a tinge of its red roe. One slurp of this soup, and you just can stop; almost neglecting your noodles.

But alas, the way the noodles is done proves almost as savoury. Unlike most with a dash of fried shallots and chilli paste, the sauce is carefully mixed with the broth as well. What is achieved is a flavor and texture that almost resembles hokkien mee!

Walking past the kitchen, when I was there at 2am in the morning, I discovered the secret to its tasty soup: they brown the prawn shells in a huge wok to bring out the full flavor of the prawns as well as to give it more character!
