Singapore Shrimp Noodles

After morning bread, noodles make a great midday meal.

At lunchtime, Blanco Court Prawn Mee, located in trendy Haji Lane, is packed with tourists and young people.

There are several types of noodles to choose from – kway teow, vermicelli or thick bee hoon. With a dry or soup option, the jumbo shrimp toppings are its signature.

Singapore vermicelli is often yellowish because curry powder is used in the recipe.

Opinions on its true origins are mixed, but most believe they come from Hong Kong, inspired by Indo-Chinese influence.

Meat lovers can have pork ribs and pork tail added.

In the soupy version of the noodle dish, buttered prawn oil gently spreads through the dark brown broth, giving it an earthy flavor with a natural sweetness.

A few extra spoonfuls of soup brings home its spiciness, which comes from the fried onions and pepper used in the recipe. Those who want a spicier version can add Malaysian sambal sauce or red chili slices.
