One of the newer additions to Alexandra Village Food Centre that has been gaining a following is Ming’s Prawn Noodles. Helmed by a young hawker, everything is prepared fresh daily at Ming’s Prawn Noodles so you can expect the best quality in each bowl of prawn noodles.
At first glance, we were impressed by our bowl of Pork Ribs Prawn Noodle Soup (S$5). The noodles came with a good amount of kang kong, bean sprouts, 3 pieces of chunky pork ribs and 3 pieces of succulent prawns that have been deshelled.
Although the broth looked translucent, not only did it have a good depth to it, we could also taste the sweetness from prawns. The fried shallots and self-service pork lard provided an aromatic element to it as well.
Judging from how firm the prawns were when we bit into them, they were extremely fresh. On top of that, Ming’s Prawn Noodles serves the prawns deshelled – something we believe might earn them some brownie points with those who find peeling prawns a hassle. The pork ribs were noteworthy too. Flavourful and fall-off-the-bone tender, we say definitely try this when you’re here.
We can understand why Ming’s Prawn Noodles is often compared to other big-name prawn noodles establishments – the hae mee served here was pretty solid. Moreover, we think it’s great that there are youngsters out there who are keeping our hawker culture alive. Prawn mee enthusiasts should absolutely add Ming’s Prawn Noodles to your list if you haven’t done so.
