Prawn Mee

Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles is a stall serving prawn mee that is highly rated by food critics. However I beg to differ.

This stall serves “big prawn” noodles. You can see for yourself from the image above, with reference to the spoon, how “big” the prawns really are. A total of 4 prawns are provided. These are all half slices of a prawn, not a full prawn. The serving above is their $10 portion of prawn mee.

A point to note. On their price list, there is a smaller serving of $5 portion but you can never get it – the stall owner simply refuses to sell it. Since the $5 portion is not sold, I told the stall owner nicely, why not just cover it up to avoid any confusions. If the prawn mee is good, people will gladly pay more for a larger serving just like at the other big prawn mee stalls elsewhere. She just snapped back and said that, this is the way it is. Everyone orders $10 or $15 portions, there is no $5 portion sold and no confusions. How rude and unscrupulous!

As for the prawn mee, it is actually rather decent. The prawn soup is quite nicely flavoured. However the prawns are quite normal and nothing to go gaga over. Nothing “big” about the half slices of prawns as well. The serving of prawn mee comes with regular yellow noodles, some bean sprouts, vegetables and pork lard.

This prawn mee isn’t bad per se. It is nice but just the ordinary kind of nice. I have absolutely no idea why the food critics are rating this so highly. There are way much better tasting prawn mee out there. Personally I would have given this prawn mee a “Like” rating for its taste, but….

Although I am fully for supporting our hawkers, especially the elderly ones, but I feel that we should not be condoning bad attitude and poor business antics. BIG thumbs down for this.
