Prawn Mee - Jalan Sultan vs Beach Road

Within a week, I happen to lunch at 2 of the popular Prawn Noodles house in Singapore. Both specialise in Prawn mee and sell Ngoh Hiang ( 五香) under the same roof.  

Have any of you tried before? Which noodles house do you think serve a yummier Prawn mee and Ngoh Hiang?

Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee
2 Jalan Ayer
(Opposite Kallang MRT)
Opening Hours
Daily: 8am – 3.30pm
(Closed on Tue)

Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee - S$5.00 onward
Soup version - Very rich and flavourful. Manage to maintain the consistency
Dry version - The chilli slightlty lost out to Beach Road PM 
Ingredients: Serve smaller prawns but more in qty and comes with pork slices
Ngoh Hiang stall: Not as nice as the one over at Beach Road but equally expensive

Beach Road Prawn Mee Noodle House
370 East Coast Road
Tel: +65 6345 7196
Opening Hours
Daily: 8am – 4pm
(Closed on Tue)

Beach Road Prawn Mee - S$5.50 onward
Soup version - Not consistant, sometimes very rich and tasty but at times was not
Dry version - Very nice chilli that complimented the noodles very well and love the fried onion oil too
Ingredients: Serve larger prawns but without pork slices
Ngoh Hiang stall: Nice but expensive

To conclude, I prefer Jalan Sultan as I'm not a prawn person, so smaller prawns suit me and I like the additional pork slices... haha and that's only for me! However, I prefer the dry version at Beach Road. 

Do you have any other recommendations?

Been  to both as my hubs is a prawn noodles fan. everyone in the family prefers teh Beach Rd stall, esp the Ngo Hiang's chilli sauce! and whenever we order the prawn noodles, it's always the soup beehoon. after finishing the beehoon, we went to ask for additional soup. This 2nd round of soup tastes the best, as there's no noodles or beehoon soaking in it.

After eating all the prawns noodles they all start tasting similar. There is another stall near my house Geylang Prawn Noodle (at Upper Paya Lebar Road not Geylang hor) which serves similar noodles and ngoh hiang formula. Try it next time!

I usually go Beach Rd stall with my family during weekend, we love the prawn noodle there. However, have not yet try the Sultan Rd before.
