Where: 549 Geylang Road (off Lorong 29); Open 4.30pm - midnight; Closed on alternate Wednesday
Brave the traffic, jay-walking ladies of the night, stares of DOMs in Geylang and you will be rewarded by the yummy Hokkien Prawn Noodles served by hawker See Hock Siong.
Terence and I were sorely tempted after watching him in an episode of "Makansutra Raw". We drove around for about 15 minutes before we could find parking space, and got ourselves a nice, cool seat at the Sing Lian Eating House.
It was fantastic. Smoky, gooey, and very flavourful. Our S$6 order came with four huge prawns which were very fresh -- not the exhumed prawns we've come to associate with many of his counterparts. He would throw a towering pile of yellow noodles and beehoon into his wok, and expertly fry everything until every strand is cooked. Seeto of the Makansutra fame says that most hawkers would use the thick beehoon and using the skinny ones (which See does) takes a mountain of skills.
Terence says it is the BEST Hokkien Prawn Noodles he's ever had in his entire life. We're considering checking out See's brother's stall at 396 East Coast Road, Food R Us Coffeshop (sic). Join us anyone?
