arguably the best prawn noodles in Singapore
Ask anyone where to find the best prawn mee in Singapore, and one of the most popular responses will surely be Beach House Prawn Mee. I used to have lunch there with my family at least once a month, and to this day it’s still my favourite place to get prawn mee and ngoh hiang.
Their prawn mee comes in 3 different sizes – small ($5.80), medium ($8.80) and large ($10.80). There’s also the option of adding pork ribs at the same price, which I’m not a fan of because I’ve always found the ribs a bit too tough. Their prawns are sweet and fresh, and their soup is flavourful without being too fishy. They also share a space with East Coast Ngoh Hiang, which has a decent variety mix of rolls, sausages and other fried items. It’s a little more expensive than those you find at coffee shops, but definitely worth every cent.
It's been more than 2 decades since I frequent this joint. I used to take weekly Speech and Drama Classes at CHIJ (Katong) and "the sisters' house" on Saturdays. Mum and I will always drop by the Beach Road Prawn Mee along East Coast Road for lunch. We do this weekly without fail because we are creatures of habit like that.
But of course the food has to be awesome for us to return week after week and it was and still is! I like the thick aromatic soup broth and the succulent prawns (although they were all halved because we always ordered the regular bowl). Add a huge serving of chilli powder into that soup, you'll have one spicy, tasty prawn-y soup that is mouth-wateringly good. The Ngoh Hiang in the next stall (operated by the same owners) is also a must for us. Somehow Ngoh Hiang and Prawn Noodles go hand in hand.
In recent years, I have been patronising the stall with my husband. And I can't believe that I've only recently tasted the dry version of the prawn mee. It was heavenly! Nowadays, I'll only order the dry prawn mee in a larger portion topped with lots of chilli powder. For the lack of a better word - SHIOK!
I'll also always order the lime juice with my spicy favourite. Typing this review just made my mouth water and left my tummy growling.
Extra Large Prawns Please
Personally, I'm not a fan of yellow mee at all. I'll only have yellow mee in Mee Rebus and that's about it. I really do love the bee hoon prawn mee soup at Beach road because it's not too thin and yet not has thick as the kind you find in Laksa. The broth is also extremely flavourful! Topped off with the fried shallots, you really can't ask for anything better than this.
Since I normally eat here with my family of prawn lovers, my dad likes to order the $10 bowl because you get extra large prawns that are super plump and juicy. I'm really craving this now as I'm typing this review. Lunch time can't come soon enough!
Best Prawn Mee in SG!
Like almost every other stall in Singapore, the stall name does not suggest its actual stall location. Beach Road Prawn Noddle House is not located at Beach Road, just like how Punggol Nasi Lemak isn't found in Punggol. Located along East Coast Road, this is hands down, the best prawn mee I ever had.
Frankly speaking, I'm not exactly a fan of prawn mees in general. The prawn mee here however, is the only one that I find myself craving for. I personally prefer to order the dry prawn mee with kway tiao, because the taste of the yellow noodles is slightly overpowering to me. The soup is flavourful and extremely delicious - I can't help but always ask for a second serving of the soup!
The downside is that it is more expensive that the other prawn mee stalls in Singapore and the queue can get quite long sometimes, but it is definitely worth waiting and paying for!
Best Prawn Mee I'd ever Tasted
Prawns? I'm not a fan of prawns I have to admit. Normally when I order prawn mee, I don't eat the prawn. How odd right haha? But when I found saw this prawn mee shop packing with people around 11am in the morning in the suburbs of katong/east coast, I knew I had to try this.
Looking at the menu, I was a little put off by the price though; $5.50 for a bowl of prawn mee was like daylight robbery. However, I was made to eat my words as it was one of the best prawn mee I ever had. If not the best. The broth was so addictive and the prawn was absolutely fresh and sweet. My taste buds were craving for more every time I sipped the broth. The only complain I would have would be the size of the prawns. I expected bigger prawns for that kind of price.
Overall, it is definitely a must try. No question about it. If it managed to lure a non prawn lover like me to fall in love with it, it will captivate the hearts of all.
Like the other reviewers here, I love prawns!!!! Prawn noodles are such a great invention. You get to eat prawns, you get flavorful prawn soup accompanied with noodles to fill you up. This prawn noodle house is not famous for nothing. The prawns are absolutely fresh and crunchy and the soup is unbeatable!!! It is so sweet and flavorful. You know how some bad prawn noodles have a very thin soup with almost non-existing prawn flavor? and how some prawns are so tiny, flat and lack crunchiness. This prawn noodle is nothing like that.
I would recommend the dry prawn noodles. That is what I usually have when I am there and I don't really like the taste of the soup when yellow noodles are soaked in it. It alters the taste of the soup. The dry prawn noodles comes with a bowl of soup as well. If it's not enough, you can always ask for more! If you are adventurous enough, you can even try the pig tail noodle. But I haven't had the courage to do so yet so I'll just stick to my plain ol' prawn noodle. This bowl of prawn noodle would make the prawns so proud. Ha!
The very best
I'm a big fan of prawn noodles, and it was one of my childhood favourites, and still is till this day. I love how the sweet and savoury prawn soup tastes so good, and how the noodles just soak up all the flavor. I hadn't really known what prawn noodles really was until I tried it at the Beach Road Prawn Noodle House.
Having a long history and success story behind this stall, the effort and care put into making each bowl of perfectly delicious prawn noodles is evident. The stall has been around since 1986, and this recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. This is my favourite place to have my prawn noodle fix, as it just so tasty, and no other prawn noodle in Singapore quite compares to this one. Although I do not live near East Coast, I make special trips down to this stall just to get my fix, and never once have a regretted going there.
