545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles (Tekka Centre)

Prawn Noodles (dry) $3
545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles is a prawn noodles stall located at Tekka Centre operated by a young hawker; Ruifang and her parents. Those who find the stall name familiar (or notice a familar face), it is because Ruifang's father used to operate a prawn noodle stall with the same name at Blk 91 Whampoa Drive Market.
It is heartening to know that this stall is operated by a family (team), just like the good old days. The turnover is pretty fast, so do not be surprised if there's no queue or the queue moves quickly during lunch hours. As the recipe was passed down by Rui Fang's grandfather, this is a old school style prawn noodles stall.
Only dry and wet versions of prawn noodles are available.

Personally, I prefer their dry version compared to the soup version. The soup was rich and robust in flavour (not diluted), but there was just an aftertaste that did not resonate well with my taste buds.

The dry version came with bean sprouts, lean meat, prawns and noodles with chilli sambal and ketchup sauce, topped with fried shallots was delicious. Their sauce complemented really well with the noodles. In addition, even the little details such as fried shallots was excellent. The shallots were so crisp and fresh, love it! At $3 this is so value for money!

  1. I like the soupy version but seem the dry one should be a good try.
