Aren’t we lucky to have such a wide range of comfort foods to reach out for in this rainy weather? Besides fish head steamboat, bak kut teh and other soupy delights, prawn noodles is something we would gladly queue up for, brollys in tow. Here’s a list of 8 best prawn noodles in Singapore, split into four categories – crowd favourites, value for money, out of the ordinary and broths galore, so that you can further filter your options to find one that suits you best.

Crowd Favourites

1. Beach Road Prawn Noodles

Beach Road Prawn Noodles seems to be one of the most commonly voted as the top in Singapore. Despite the crowd and parking perils, many still patronise this stall. The sweet broth, soft pork ribs and crisp prawns make a winning combination, and the adjacent ngoh hiang stall is almost as popular. A Small Bowl of Prawn with Pork Ribs costs $5.80.

2. River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles

River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles is another one that has Singaporeans travelling for – and it is no wonder too. Their well-rounded prawn mee scores in all areas, from the rich soup to the tender pork ribs. Go for their Big Prawn Noodle ($4.50 for small) or even Abalone Clams Prawn Noodles ($5.50 for small) for extra indulgence.

Value for Money

3. 545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles

545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles' secret weapon is its young and capable owner in her thirties, who left her MNC job for one in the hawker line. Taking over her parents’ stall, Ruifang has managed to preserve the essence of tradition and thus, many label her prawn noodles as old-school and nostalgic. With prices starting from $3 for such quality, this really is one good deal. 545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles, 665 Buffalo Road #01-326, Singapore 210665 (Image: OpenRice user ieatandeat)

4. Khoon Kee Tasty Prawn Noodle and Char Kway Teow

Khoon Kee Tasty Prawn Noodle and Char Kway Teow is run by a brother and sister team where the former used to be a chef in Japan. Although prices go as low as $3, we suggest splurging a little to go for the Big Prawn Mee ($5), which is a hot, savoury bowl of robust red soup and sweet prawns.

Out of the Ordinary

5. The Naked Finn

While it may strike some as odd, The Naked Finn makes it to this list as one of the more upscale places to have your prawn noodles. Using only wild-caught prawns (rare and difficult to procure) and kurobuta pork belly, plus a cooking process of more than 6 hours, it could very well justify the hefty price tag of their Hae Mee Tng ($25).

6. Ah Hui Big Prawn Noodles

Ah Hui Big Prawn Noodles differentiates themselves with their herbal soup instead of the usual prawn stock. Previously at Thomson’s Long House, they have since relocated to Balestier, but ardent fans still visit for their satisfying soup base and succulent prawns. Go for the Pork Ribs Prawn Noodle ($5) for maximum experience. Ah Hui Big Prawn Noodles, Balestier Food Centre, 411 Balestier Road, Singapore 329930 (Image: OpenRice user eugenemark)

Broths Galore

7. Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee

Located near Kallang MRT, Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee holds its reputation as one of the best stalls around with its legendary broth. Stewed with prawn shells and pork ribs, the natural sweetness and flavour of each component is extracted to a tee, and then served piping hot. If the smaller prawns in the Prawn Mee Soup ($5) don’t please you enough, get the King Prawn Pork Ribs Mee ($8/$10). Plus points for refillable soups too!

8. Albert Street Prawn Noodle

The surviving outlet of Albert Street Prawn Noodle in Old Airport Road Food Centre serves up big succulent prawns (that de-shell easily) in a generous portion of soup for $5, with a spoonful of curry powder to add in. While you can definitely taste the sweetness of prawns as you slurp, note that the lack of saltiness in the broth might not please everyone.
