You Can Get Legit Penang Prawn Mee At This Amoy Street Food Centre Stall

Penang Prawn Noodle has Malaysian hae mee at Amoy Street Food Centre

Though Singapore has prawn mee stalls aplenty, most of these sell a version closest to the OG Hokkien rendition of the dish—where yellow noodles are cooked in or served alongside a broth made from slowly boiling prawn heads, shells, and pork bones. This is a tad different from the Penang version of the dish, which is sold at a handful of hawker stalls around the island, including the aptly named Penang Prawn Noodle at Amoy Street Food Centre.

The relatively new stall is located on the first floor of the hawker centre, according to a poster in the Can Eat! SG Facebook group. They usually open early for breakfast and close just after the lunch rush.

If you’re unfamiliar with the difference between Singaporean and Penang hae mee, here’s the lowdown: both have similar origins, but they’re spiced differently. In Singapore, you can enjoy your prawn mee with both sliced chilli padi and sambal, the latter usually made with hae bee. In Penang, though, the broth is cooked with the sambal, so you really get a broth that is both sweet and umami.
