Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles (Cambridge Road)
Everyone has been lauding this 'wah kee big prawn noodles' as outstanding; so we went down to pek kio market for lunch to try out the delicious prawn noodles. and it was good, actually; the noodles were done very well, and the prawns were big and succulent; but the highlight was the soup, because it was done bisque-style (apparently a bisque is flambeed with butter or something as compard to a normal soup) and thus the flavour was very much, as ieat had rightly pointed out, to a seafood bisque, in that it had that prawn flavour without being too salty, rather you had a depth of flavour with a lingering aftertaste like in a bisque, an aftertaste of seafood, the sea, and all things seafoody. very nice. and the pork lard in it and all the savoury bits were a welcome addition also, although my lunch partner had dissed it for putting lard. but well, it's still good to me.
PS: the zion road prawn noodles is terrific as well - i think that one edges this by just a bit.
