Shun Shun Prawn Mee Review @ Tampines 顺顺虾面 – nice but fattening prawn mee
One of our Facebook viewers recommended Shun Shun Prawn Mee and we decided to try it out. Shun Shun Prawn Mee offers various type of prawn mee versions, available in prawns, pork rib, pig tails and pig innards.
We were there during a weekend morning and at least ten customers already in the queue ahead of us. Queuing to buy food could be boring but the uncle cooking the noodle was amazingly entertaining, he was tossing and flipping the noodle with the spider skimmer with lots of quick body actions, sometime, he was intentionally hitting the metal ladle on the porcelain bowl creating rhythm to complement his kitchen dance. Watching the interesting “dance” helped me kill the waiting time.
Standard Prawn mee $3/4
We opted the dried version and the base sauce was a mixture of seasoned chili sauce with tomatoes sauce, lard and shallot oil were added to give the extra zing. The noodle was cooked with kang kong, bean sprout and a little of pork slices, the finished bowl of prawn mee was then topped with fish cake and sliced shrimps.
Seasoning in general was flavourful, however, the noodle was much overcooked and it turned rather soggy when eat, the use of lard and shallot oil was overwhelming too and you will have a bowl of oil logged noodle to deal with.
Accompanying soup was sweet and delicious, we like it but the thick and discernible layer of oil floating on the soup may not be easily stomached by those health conscious.
Pork rib Prawn mee $5
Pork rib was very tender with the meat detached easily from the bone, seasoning sauce was the same and the noodle was overcooked as well.
Our verdict on Shun Shun Prawn Mee
It is not a $10 or $25 bowl of supreme tiger prawn noodle offered by some of popular prawn mee shops, Shun Shun Prawn Mee sticks to the basic of offering a simple and comforting prawn mee that able to please most of the palates.
