Prawnaholic 虾の传人 @ Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre
Chicken rice, fishball noodles, prawn noodles, fried kway teow…The traditional hawker stalls that have been embedded in our food legacy are gradually going through the transformation, some are breaking the traditional with fusion-infused hawker food, and it could not be more ideal than letting the young food entrepreneurs relishing their passion on the culinary skills by introducing the third dimension into the local hawker scene.
The new Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre is seem to be the response to the call with the introduction of new fusion hawker food to be part of the hawker food culture, while traditional hawker food continue its presence in the new hawker centre, a new level two is now designated to house the many young food entrepreneurs to bring the hawker food into the new era with the introduction of a fusion food and premium quality into the staple dishes.
Prawnaholic – one of the stalls managed by a young chef and selling the traditional Prawn noodles with a modern twist, the signature dry version is one of their best sellers, deviating from the traditional spicy chili-seasoned base sauce, the black base sauce could hardly taste or feel of the chili sensation, however, the slight sweetness and savoury sauce is a pleasant to the palates with its delectable flavour.
The al dente noodle was topped with two fresh perfectly cooked medium size prawns, a fine and tasty cuttlefish ball, two slices of perfectly charred pork belly which was juicy and extremely fragrant, we added on an onset egg ($1) to the bowl for the extra flavour.
The bowl of soup was not taken too lightly as well with the hints of herbs and the sweetness infused by the seafood.
Prawnaholic is the dream work of a young chef come truth, we not only applause his culinary skills to create a uniquely prawn noodle that has the characteristics but able to bring this traditional hawker food a level higher, of course, the noodle comes with a premium price tags ($6.50) but we think it is justifiable for the quality presented.
Be it to support our young food entrepreneurs or for the bowl of enthralling prawn noodle, we fully endorsed the work presented by Prawnaholic.
