With a style the polar opposite of my favourite Da Dong Prawn Noodles is my second favourite - Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee.
I know, I know - it must sound odd seeing how different they are but it is in what sets them apart that has me enjoying the latter’s prawn noodles too.
Significantly more potent in prawn power, the darker yet clearer soup of Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee lacks the rounded mouthfeel of Da Dong’s silky opaque broth (which is why I am always torn between ordering the dry and soup versions there). But like Hemingway’s writing - terse and direct, this eatery’s is all about singing that singular note of crustacean. At least, that is my impression. And also why I prefer the dry version here because having a small bowl of their prawn-y soup is enough. What really draws me is the tangy-spicy chilli used to toss the noodles - it has an old-school taste which I have a spot spot for. Needless to say, the prawns, served halved for easy eating, and pork ribs, are faultless.
A bonus about dining here is we can order a plate of Ngoh Hiang as well. All the usual suspects are offered at the small stall but it also has a couple of unique items like the UFO-shaped patty which tastes a lot like the Hokkien Fried Oyster Cake but is softer and mealier within. I love their chilli dip too - it is a complex number with raw garlic and sour plum mixed in.

The Prawn Mee broth is packed with flavour and extremely addictive. Every single time, I can’t help but keep scooping and drinking it until it looks more like a sauce than soup.

The prawns were pretty plump and fall off the shell easily, while the pork ribs were quite tender and chewy albeit small.

Affordable at $5, came with 2 halved prawns and 3 pork ribs.

Soup was not overly creamy or heavy with a strong aroma of Prawn heads and pork broth.
Very different from the Beach Road Prawn Mee style of soup

My childish taste buds opted for ketchup, noodles were cooked just nicely. Pork lard was crispy, pork ribs were slightly tender and not too porky. Prawns were fresh, decent sized and well cooked.

Overall this wins Beach Road, but Beach road has a richer broth.

From Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee
Decent portion for small size.
Add some paprika powder to enjoy.
They have decent coffee too.

Although Dadong Prawn Noodles in Joo Chiat remains the number one in my heart, I have to admit the one from this stall is very tasty. Theirs is the “kill-you-with-strong-prawn-flavour” style. So even though the soup isn’t the opaque sort and may seem a bit thin even, there is no denying its intensity. The prawns, served halved lengthwise with shell on, are fresh and sweet while the smallish pieces of pork ribs are tender and tasty.
If I had to choose, I would pick the dry version over the soup because I really enjoyed the savoury and slightly tangy chilli sambal used to dress the noodles.
