Hoe Nam Prawn Noodles
25 June 2008
This is Hoe Nam Prawn Noodles at Jackson Kopitiam (next to it, more accurately) along Tai Thong Crescent; to go there, just take the PIE and exit at macpherson and turn left into tai thong crescent - can't miss it. apparently it's one of the best prawn noodles in Singapore, so i had to visit it, to give it a try. hehs. so to speak. makansutra gave it a perfect 6 chopsticks rating - well, so how did it fare?
the shop is a bustling coffeeshop, in the sweltering sun, no air-con, chairs and tables and people waiting for more tables - almost like east coast prawn noodles (beach road); and so i ordered pork rib prawn noodles and my friends had the normal prawn noodles.
it was alright - but not fantastic. i expected the soup to be mind-blowingly prawny, but this one was just prawny enough to be tasty but not really woahhhh brilliant, sigh, which was a pity. anyway it came with nice big prawns and pork ribs. oh well. i guess. perhaps it was the weather.
