Hock Prawn Mee 福鰕面 (Jalan Besar)

Pork Rib Prawn Noodle $5
Hock Prawn Mee 福鰕面 is a prawn noodle stall located at a quiet coffeeshop in Jalan Besar area, oppsite Sim Lim Tower, near Sim Lim Square. It is located just opposite Wanderlust Hotel.

This prawn mee is located in the same coffeeshop as the Hainan Chicken Rice Ball.
I was surprised that Hock Prawn Mee is open 24 hours.
It was manned by an elderly lady and a gentleman in his 40s-50s during the day time when I went on several occasions. The elderly lady was in charge of cooking the food (including the soup stock) while the gentleman was in charge of taking down orders, serving and collection of payment.
Intestine Prawn Noodle $5
Seeing that they offer pig small intestines, I ordered the Intestine Prawn Noodle which cost $5. I was surprised that the price of the prawn noodles at this coffeeshop start from $4 onwards. Was expecting more of $3 or $3.50.
Intestine Prawn Noodle $5
The small intestine was delicious. It was very well cleaned with its innards still intact inside. regretted ordering the dry version as the chilli sauce was disappointing. It lacked fragrance and was not spicy. The soup provided was yummy though! It was very tasty.
Pork Rib Prawn Noodle $5
On the subsequent visit, I ordered the soup version of the Pork Rib Prawn Noodle $5. This was delicious as the soup base was very well done and full of umami flavour. In addition, the pork rib was tender. 

Personally, I prefer their soup version. Their dry version was disappointing due to the chilli. Pricewise, it is on the higher end compared to its peers in coffeeshops and hawker centres.
