River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles 河南肉骨大虾面 (Macpherson)

Abalone Clams & Big Prawn Noodles $5.50
I have heard about River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles 河南肉骨大虾面 for sometime but have not tried it as I seldom pass by this area of Singapore.
River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles as its name suggest specialises in prawn noodles. It is so popular and famous that it owns the entire coffeeshop and in fact is the only stall in that coffeeshop (other than the drink stall). This reminds me of the famous Bak Chor Mee (minced meat noodles); Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle which also owns the entire coffeeshop. 
They offer a wide range of prawn noodles (normal prawns or big prawns) with the option to add abalone clams, intestines, pig tails or baby abalone.
Abalone Clams & Big Prawn Noodles $5.50
I visited on a weekday at around 2.30 pm. I wanted to order their Intestines & Big Prawn Noodles but it was sold out. Hence, I ordered the Abalone Clams & Big Prawn Noodles $5.50 instead.

I ordered the dry version which was served with a bowl of soup. The chilli sauce was decent. What stood out was the freshness of the prawns. Although there were not very big, the prawns were extremely fresh and sweet in taste. Also, the prawns were deshelled, except for the head and tail.

The bowl of soup also stood out. It was yummlicious! In terms of appearance, it was slightly cloudy and light brown in colour. Taste wise, it was robust and tasty; full of umami flavour. It is one of the best prawn soup I have had. Unfortunately, there is a charge of $1 for refill of soup. Else, I would probably have refilled the soup several times. 

Now I understand why the prawn noodles at River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles has been so highly raved about!
