Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodle

0

Wah Kee is a household name for some, with its legacy of 65 years. Most notably, its Pek Kio Market stall had legions of fans – including famous politicians and celebrities like Chow Yun-Fatt – flocking to try their signature prawn noodles despite long queueing hours. With the launch of the spanking new Esplanade restaurant, gourmands can now enjoy classic hawker food in a cosy, air-conditioned environment. Best part? The price is only a $1 increase from its Pek Kio counterpart.

Behind the scenes – preparations

You have the option of dry/soup, and if you choose the dry version, a bowl of piping hot soup will follow. We highly recommend the dry version!

The East-West-inspired concoction of strawberry and traditional rojak completes the “hawker” experience.

The oysters and other seafood can be prepared fresh or grilled. Look out for the special dipping sauces – they are served in a very unique way! (Hint: look at the bowl of oysters again)
