River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles

River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles, 31 Tai Thong Crescent, is one of the places that the bf frequents for supper. This time, the bunny finally had a chance to visit the stall that is well-known for their prawn noodles.

Hoe Nam has an impressive menu of prawn noodles for selection. There's small prawns, big prawns, and a wide range of ingredients from the relatively more common sliced pork, pork ribs to something more decadent such as baby abalone that you can choose to accompany your bowl of prawn mee.

The bf ordered the Abalone Clams & Big Prawn noodles ($5) for both of our dinners.

I usually avoid yellow noodles because of the oil smell, but there's none from Hoe Nam's.

As for the clams, they were nothing out of the ordinary and are definitely of the canned variety.

Prawns were pretty fresh. I like that the stall peels the prawns, making it convenient for people like me who do not like to get their hands dirty. The heads and tails are left on, but it's easy to remove them.

The broth, however, is impressive. Served piping hot, it's thick and fragrant. The soup is infused with the richness of pork ribs and the sweetness from prawns that could only come with hours of simmering. Sadly, refill of the soup is not allowed.

Hoe Nam opens till 4am - great for all the night owls out there. Parking is a pain though as there are limited lots in the area.
