Craving for that flavourful rich broth Hae Mee?

Fresh Taste Big Prawn Noodles previously known as “Noo Cheng Adam Road Big Prawn Mee” gained bigger fame after it was awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand.

In case you are wondering, yes, it is related to the Noo Cheng Big Prawn Mee at Adam Road Food Centre.

Note that it has closed its Chinatown eatery previously located at South Bridge Road.

[Following review for its Chinatown store] On its menu are offerings of Prawn Noodles ($10, $16), Prawn Noodle with Sliced Pork ($10, $16), Sliced Pork & Ribs Noodle ($10), and more atas bowls of Lobster Ramen with Sliced Pork ($26) and Lobster Ramen with Lala ($28).

If your mind is going ”so expensive”, its prices at the Zion Riverside Food Centre stall was not cheap to begin with, at $6, $8, $12, $16, $20, and $25.

Many regulars do order the higher priced bowls.

There are also side dishes of Dou Miao with Garlic Sauce ($8), Baked Prawn with Mayonnaise Sauce ($8 per pc, min 2 pc), Stir-Fried Clams ($10), Crispy Prawn Roll ($8), and Fragrant Pork with Crushed Garlic ($6) – which the server highly recommended again, and again.

Ordering is at a small space near the entrance, which can get pretty awkward when other customers start to Safe-Entry and get temperatures taken at the same area.

I had the Prawn Noodle with Sliced Pork ($10), and inevitably I would compare this to the hawker stall’s.

Previously, wild sea prawns were served cut into half down the centre. This time, whole prawns are included – reason given that it looks more presentable.

Instead of the usual sliced pork, the meats resembled Japanese cha siu served in ramen bowls, and were soft and tender. Add that conspicuous crispy pork lard, and it is bliss.

The moment of truth… the soup.

I have to say I preferred the version at the hawker stall’s, which was thicker and richer from the long boiling of the pork bones.

This soup was slightly lighter with a sweet tinge. (Boss says give him a day or two more to get used to the new kitchen space and it shall be done. He doesn’t know who I am by the way.)

I also ordered the Dry Prawn Noodles with Pork Ribs ($10) to compare, and my friend commented ”Almost the same as the old one.”

The specialty chilli base with a mix of dried shrimps and peanut, had a stronger aroma previously. Perhaps, say 90% there?

  1. hey Dan,

    there might be a chance that it isnt the original one at Zion road. Feels like it is similar but doesnt have the same stuff that the original stall offers.

    Firstly, the dry noodles you all ordered have the prawns served with the noodles which he always serves in the soup instead.

    Secondly, the noodles always served with either pork ribs or pork belly, he doesnt serve sliced pork.

    This is likely a franchise or a product steal. Which has happened alot previously.

    PS- im ur reservist mate who u introduced The Clan restaurant to previously, my wife has taken a liking for your foodblog since. Thanks!

    • Hi Rai, some boss at Zion Road was serving there. He explained why there were differences – to cater to a different kitchen (some limitations), customer base etc.

    • Hi Rai
