Food Review: Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles at Pek Kio Market | The Best Prawn Mee in Singapore?

The Place Mention Pek Kio Hawker Centre and Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles is easily one of the prominent stalls here. We visited the stall on one of the Sunday for breakfast and it was no surprise that the queue was horrendously long. Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles is in fact older than Singapore, with a history of 65 years.


The Food The prices here start from S$3, then proceeds On to S5, S$10, S$15, S$25, depending on how luxe you want your prawns to be. Do note that the stall auntie usually claims that the lower denomination bowls (S$3 and S$5) are sold out by a certain time, so it is common to be left with the S$10 onward options. Frankly, I am very skeptical about this.

After an arduous wait of about 90 minutes, we were only left with the S$10 bowls and beyond. We had the S$10 Prawn noodles, dry version which was very tasty on its own with some hints of spices. The soup which housed the prawns was served separately, prepared for many hours to give it that thick and luscious broth.


Rants The stall here has an infamous auntie with her bad service attitude. For one, she has no patience to wait for you to deliberate your order or ask unnecessary questions. In essence, the service is horrendous.

Will I Return Again? In all fairness, Wah Kee Prawn Noodles is a notch above most prawn noodle stalls in other hawker centres. The dry noodles was delicious, not to mention the rich prawn broth. Is this the best prawn mee in Singapore? Definitely one of the top ones, though I believe there are better ones out there in terms of overall experience.
