The Place Located at the buzzing Joo Chiat Road close to Da Dong Prawn Noodles, I was recommended to try East Treasure Speciality Prawn Noodle by a fellow food friend, located within a shophouse space. To my surprise, East Treasure is a concept by Astons, the famous western food dining chain, though you certainly won’t find Fish & Chips on the menu here. East Treasure Speciality Prawn Noodle has a few outlets, and the Joo Chiat space is relatively spacious and airy.
The Food As with most prawn noodles stalls, there are various combinations with the most luxe option being the Supreme Big Prawn Noodle (S$12.50). I am not a big fan of big prawn as I pay more attention to the broth and the the overall flavour of the noodles, hence I simply went of the most basic Classic Prawn Noodle (S$5.80).
I had the dry version, and the noodle comes with some pork belly slices, beansprouts and kang kong. The chilli is not too spicy for me and I like it along with the noodles, while the ingredients are pretty generous for the price. The soup is luscious, though there is a $0.80 charge for refill per the menu.
The Rantee went for the soup version which is equally satisfying.
Rants Limited parking lots right outside the stall space, though there is a public car park a short walk away.
Will I Return Again? Is East Treasure Speciality Prawn Noodle better than Da Dong? Price wise, this comes cheaper than Da Dong and the waiting time is probably shorter as well. It is a good alternative if you want to have a competent bowl of prawn noodles in Joo Chiat.
