Prawn noodle (Hae Mee in hokkien) is a popular noodle soup dish in Singapore. There are a few types of noodles for you to choose from such as, Mee Pok, Mee Kia and Kuay Tiao. Traditionally, they are served with Yellow Noodle in dark flavoured soup. The noodle will be served with prawns, pork slices, fish cake slices, and bean sprouts topped with fried shallots and spring onion. The soup is made using dried shrimps, plucked heads of prawns, white pepper, garlic and other spices. The picture above is a “dry” version of the prawn noodle which flavouring comes from oil, vinegar, chili, soy sauce and the soup. It is best served with freshly cut red chili slices in light soy sauce.
