It boils down to stock

River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles
31 Tai Thong Crescent
Singapore 347859
Opening hours: 6.30am – 4.30pm
Not open once a month on Monday

When it comes to good cooking, it usually boils down to one basic thing, good stock. Skins, bones, shells and hard work are the building blocks for a good stock. It is a hell a lot easier to walk out and to purchase stock cube or concentrate but sometimes there is no real substitute, good food needs some commitment. Stock-making is one of the acts that I would perform to train my patience level and to learn that sometimes in our super-fast paced world there is some glory in delayed gratification.



Prawn noodle stock is actually a prawn-pork based stock that is made from boiling down pig’s tails, pork ribs, and prawn shells. River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodles is probably the best prawn noodles store we have. The stock at this stall is rich and sweet and terribly sinful. Simply put, liquid cholesterol never tasted this good. Perspiring from the heat, I bent over my bowl of noodles and alternated slurping down the chilli-laced noodles and spooning the flavoursome soup into my mouth (burning my tongue in the process). Lunch here was painfully delicious.

is it from the same people that sells the prawn noodles at the coffeeshop oposite Macphearson Kopitiam?

the stall sells, in my humble opinion, the best prawn noodles in singapore. However if u craves for huge prawns, den drop by Adams Road food Centre for their huge prawn noodles.

Both places serves fantasic soup.

damien: hello! yep that's the same prawn noodle stall. Funny you mention Adam Road's prawn noodles because i was there last week as well. Like you said, it is pretty good as well but if i had to choose i think i would go with this one.

lin: hi, thanks for stopping by!

You are so right about the stock. If the flavours that the noodles have boiled in are off, the whole meal is off. Thanks for the great reminder of a simple, satisfying dish!
