Beach Road Prawn Mee Eating House (Prawn Mee & Ngoh Hiang)

Beach Road Prawn Mee contrary to popular belief, is not located at Beach Road. Along the stretch of East Coast Road which also has several other eateries waiting for be visited, Beach Road Prawn Mee is further down after Penny University and Madnest.

It was still pretty crowded when we were there around 1-2 in the afternoon, and parking is definitely on first-come-first-serve basis around the private estates surrounding it. After wasting some time on the parking, next will be locating an empty table for dining. Concept is like a coffeehouse where you got to stand around and wait for an available table. Beach Road Prawn Mee Eating House has plenty of seats, occupying 2 shop houses in size. Turnaround can be quite fast with some patience.

Queue processing is quite efficient and so is their food preparation. While they are famous for their Special Big Prawn Mee, they also provide options such as Pork Rib Mee and others. Serving is available in 3 sizes (small/medium/large), and is actually great for people to order according to their level of starvation, and avoid over-stuffing!

Special Prawn Mee with Bee Hoon ($8.80). Had actually wanted the big prawns but was told it was out-of-stock, and we had to settle for the medium-sized prawns. Ok, better than none. We also had the Prawn with Pork Ribs Mee ($5.80) in small-sized serving. For an average eater, I would recommend a ordering the small-sized serving portion, which is just nice for a meal.

Generally, both bowls were quite good, but I would prefer the soup base to be stronger in taste. The noodles are kind of soggy when it was served, thus losing a little of the firm texture. But disregarding the noodles and the soup, the prawns are still crunchy and also the pork rib is so soft and can literally lick the meat off the bones clean.

Just right beside the Prawn Mee ordering queue, is another popular stall, Ngoh Hiang, a Chinese delicacy. Similar to Indian Rojak and Yong Tau Foo, East Coast Ngoh Hiang goes by the concept of selecting your own food items and let the crew cut and make it hot for serving to your table. It was quite ok, but I love their Ngoh Hiang most although it is not that crunchy. It is a little mushy to make it easier for chewing and is so flavorful.

I do envy peeps living near popular food streets, and one of them is definitely East Coast Road. With such array of options to dine at, regardless at which time of the day, seems like a food haven for all!
