YumzYumz gave this fried hokkien prawn noodles a try and it was really nice. It is the wet version where the aromatic broth is still pooling at the bottom of the pile of noodles and beehoon.
At $4 a plate, we got two crunchy prawns, and strips of fatty pork belly to go along with the silky fragrant noodles infused deeply with prawn broth. The taste of lye was quite strong, so for those foodies who likes that alkaline taste, this is definitely for you.
In case you like to know, the typical ingredients of Yellow Noodles consists of Wheat flour, Water, Salt and alkaline Salt (Lye Water). Lye water is also known as Kan Shui ( 碱水). (Yup, we Googled it)
The next really important element of Fatty Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle Carrot Cake at Ci Yuan Hawker Centre, is their AMAZING chili sauce. It was tangy, FREAKING SPICY, and definitely a really good pairing with their already tasty noodles.
Finally, on top of how nice their hokkien prawn noodles are, their friendly and approachable attitude are what every hawker should aspire to have.
