10th November 2021

Best prawn mee and seafood soup in Singapore

The key to our prawn mee-loving hearts is the broth. The richer, the more robust, the better. Sometimes, the ante is upped with more types of seafood, creating unique takes on the classic hae mee dish.

Packing on the layers of flavour are our list of 23 prawn mee and seafood soup stalls that will touch your souls with their umami-laden broths. Are these the best prawn noodles in Singapore? You be the judge.

1. Fresh Taste Big Prawn Noodle

They used to be Noo Cheng Adam Road Prawn Mee, a branch of the original stall at Adam Road, but they are now known as Fresh Taste Big Prawn Noodle. Their prawn mee has gained them a spot on the Michelin Bib Gourmand guide, so be prepared to queue. I tasted more pork than prawn in this milky broth, which was creamy from hours of boiling. For $8, you’ll get large banana prawns with slices of fish cake, pork belly, pork skin and pork ribs.

2. Beach Road Prawn Mee Eating House

This amber-hued broth from Beach Road Prawn Mee Eating House tastes clean, and comes with notes of herbs, a slight touch of shallot oil, as well as pork lard. I usually add a few shakes of fine chilli powder, which is more smoky than spicy. The regular bowl goes for $6, which gets you medium-sized prawns. Their most popular option is the Jumbo Prawn Mee at $12, which comes with larger prawns.

Address: 370/372 East Coast Road, Singapore 428981
Opening hours: Wed-Mon 7am to 4pm
Tel: 6345 7196

3. Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee

Another prawn mee that made its way into the Michelin Guide, Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee was awarded the Michelin Plate for its tasty signature dish. It’s an offshoot from the same family that brought you Beach Road Prawn Mee, hence you might find similarities in the taste of both broths. The soup here is lighter than some of the other stalls, although it is still rich with the sweetness of prawns. A regular bowl of Pork Rib Prawn Mee is priced at $6, and their Sultan Prawn Mee, which comes with huge prawns, costs $10.

Address: 2 Jalan Ayer, Singapore 389141
Opening hours: Thurs-Mon 8am to 3:30pm

4. River South (Hoe Nam) Noodles House

Nestled in the middle of a few shophouses near Potong Pasir MRT Station, River South (Hoe Nam) Noodles House offers prawn mee that tastes simple and comforting. The broth has a strong taste of pork and shellfish. $5 can get you a bowl of prawn mee, but those who want something more can try Five-in-One Bowl ($12/$15) that includes medium-sized prawns, abalone clams, pork ribs, pig’s tail and pig’s intestine. Check out how this stall fares against other iconic prawn mees here.

Address: 31 Tai Thong Crescent, Singapore 347859
Opening hours: Sun-Thurs 7am to 3pm, 5pm to 10pm, Fri-Sat 7am to 3pm, 5pm to 1:30am
Tel: 6281 9293

5. Blanco Court Prawn Mee

Blanco Court Prawn Mee started in 1928, so chances are, your ah gong might have brought ah ma here for prawn mee years ago. For $6, you’ll get a bowl of prawn mee with three halved prawns, pork ribs and a light shower of fried shallot oil. Together with kang kong, the combination of thick bee hoon and egg noodles creates a mix of textures. With ample space and swift service, this casual eatery makes a great spot for lunch.

Address: 243 Beach Road, Singapore 189754
Opening hours: Wed-Mon 7am to 4pm
Tel: 6396 8464

6. Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles

Here’s one for purists: Wah Kee uses nothing but prawns in its broth, thus its bright orange hue. The stall is known for its temperamental owners, which did not faze the mighty Chow Yun-Fatt, who once queued for a bowl of prawn mee here.

Prices start at $5 for a small bowl, but we recommend going at least for the $10 bowl with dry mee kia (thin yellow noodles). The mee kia is made especially for Wah Kee, and they blend the sauces fresh on-site daily! Do note that their branch at Esplanade is no longer in operation.

Whitley Road Big Prawn Mee, now considered one of the OG stalls of good prawn mee in Singapore, used to run its operations under a flyover along Whitley Road many years back. A regular bowl of Big Prawn Pork Rib Noodle starts at $5.50. Thanks to their relatively long opening hours, the soup here gets more robust later in the day.

Address: 51 Old Airport Road, #01-98, Old Airport Road Food Centre, Singapore 390051

8. Sumo Big Prawn

Ang Mo Kio - Sumo Big Prawn

Run by young hawkers in their 20s, Sumo Big Prawn offers fancy ingredients such as clams, crayfish and lobster with noodles. $5 gets you a bowl of prawn mee soup, and if you’re up for a splurge, $18.90 gets you a Lobster Bee Hoon Soup. They usually use Asian lobsters, but on days they don’t have a supply of those, they use Columbian lobsters with a top-up of $6. All bowls come with prawns and clams, making for an extreme seafood broth packed full of flavour.

545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles

No fancy ingredients here, just simple and old-school prawn mee done right. 545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles is run by a third-generation young hawker, whose grandfather used to sell prawn mee from a pushcart in Whampoa in the 1950s. The late Anthony Bourdain has eaten here before, too! Their prawn noodles, which start from $4, are topped with slices of blanched prawns, sliced pork and shallot oil. Go for the dry version with chilli ─ that’s what everyone gets.

Apart from the usual prawn mee that costs $5.50, Wen Wen Big Prawn Mee also offers a premium bowl that includes abalone, pork ribs and prawn for $18. But what you must have here is their Seafood Prawn Mee Steamboat (from $60) that comes with a whole crab, pork ribs, pig’s tail and pretty much whatever they have available on the shelf. You can buy your own ingredients to throw into the steamboat too!

11. Da Dong Prawn Noodles

Da Dong Prawn Noodles

Now run by young hawkerpreneur Watson Lim, Da Dong Prawn Noodles was founded by his father in 1966. It ticks most of our boxes for a great bowl of prawn noodles, and the broth is so precious, refills are not entertained. Their Big Prawn Noodles ($15) comes with five huge prawns, or you can go for the standard Pork Rib Prawn Noodles ($5)

12. Chef Kang Prawn Noodle House

Chef Kang Prawn Mee

Michelin-starred Chef Kang sells prawn mee with a side of har cheong pork ribs, differentiating Chef Kang Prawn Noodle House from every other stall on this list. The King Prawn Noodle Soup With Prawn Paste Spare Ribs ($10) is accompanied by an impressive hunk of rib that is the star of this dish. If you’re expecting a rich, thick prawn stock enriched with pork bones, this is not the stall for you. He uses chicken feet, so the soup is significantly lighter.

Address: Blk 85 Toa Payoh Lorong 4, #01-328, Singapore 310085
Opening hours: Tues-Sun 9am to 8pm
Tel: 9771 2667

13. Prawn & Mee

Prawn and Mee

Gladwin Yap and Raphael Sim, graduates of the prestigious Culinary Institute Of America, run Prawn & Mee. The prawn stock here tastes similar to the ramen soup at Lobster King Keisuke’s, its intense shrimpy taste testament to the higher ratio of prawns to pork that they use, as compared to other stalls. Go for the Prawn Noodle Dry (from $4), which is dangerously addictive, and it comes with an even richer soup that’s not diluted with other ingredients.

Address: Blk 216 Bedok North Street 1, #01-45, Singapore 460216
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 9am to 2pm

14. Ebi Bar


For prawn noodles with a modern, Japanese twist check out Ebi Bar. This restaurant in town offers hae mee with a ramen slant, great for fans of both dishes. Try their Signature “Chao Da” Ebi Noodles ($14.90) for loads of umami, as charred prawns are served atop springy ramen noodles, dressed with a broth that is made with 40kg of prawn shells and heads, prepared for up to 10 hours. For sides, get their Salted Mackerel Fried Chicken ($6.90), a riff on karaage with salted mackarel marinade for oomph.

East Treasure Speciality Prawn Noodle

Operated by the Astons group, East Treasure Speciality Prawn Noodle has a signature prawn broth that’s rich with umami, full-bodied and replete with flavour. The Classic Prawn Noodle ($5.80) is a generous serving, but prawn-lovers should go for the Supreme Big Prawn Noodle ($12.50), filled with jumbo prawns, pork belly slices, pork ribs and even pork tails.

16. Da Shi Jia

Da Shi Jia is known for its Wok-fried Big Prawn White Bee Hoon ($16.80), but the Prawn Noodle ($5.80) is not shabby either. It’s slightly lighter and less salty than the prawn soup you get at other hawker stalls, but there is a pleasing sweet aftertaste at the end of each mouthful. If you’re in the Orchard area, this is worth a try!

Address: 89 Killiney Road, Singapore 239534
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 9pm

Choose between dry or soup versions—the latter is made with a base stock prepared fresh in the wee hours every morning, with prawns sourced from local fisheries.

Big Prawn Noodle

The orange broth at Loyang Way Big Prawn Noodles is full-bodied and has a slight hint of spice, followed by the sweetness of prawn. If you go for the dry Big Prawn Noodle ($5-$9), you can add on a Creamy Egg ($1) and break it into your noodles for extra richness. They have now opened a new branch in Bedok North, too!

19. Yan Ji Seafood Soup

Yan Ji Seafood Soup

Reportedly one of the best seafood soups in Singapore, Yan Ji’s goes through a long, meticulous process before it is served. The classic Seafood Soup ($6.50-$12.50) comes with everything you get in the Crayfish Soup ($12-$18), except the crayfish. This includes prawns, fish maw, minced pork, clams, and chunks of tomato that add sweetness to the soup.

Opening hours: Tue-Sun 10am to 8:30pm

20. Jia Li Seafood Soup

Jia Li Seafood Soup

Another seafood soup to try is the one at Jia Li Seafood Soup, where the seafood is first tossed in a concentrated stock to draw out their flavours before more of the briny broth is poured in to finish the soup. It’s flavourful without being overpowering. The Seafood Soup With Batang ($6.50) comes with handmade meatballs and prawns, or you can go one-up with the Crayfish Soup With Batang ($14), that is much punchier in flavour.

Address: Blk 115 Aljunied Avenue 2, #01-35, Golden 6 Fortune Coffee Shop, Singapore 380115
