Blanco Court Prawn Mee

With so many Prawn Mee Noodles available everywhere nowadays, we are all spoilt for choices. My last visit to Blanco Court Prawn Mee was in the year 2016 and it seems like the interior has no changes at all, even that signboard at its entrance.

Blanco Court Prawn Mee is still famous and considered one of the "must-try" in the category of Prawn Noodles. For they have been business for a long, they are well-loved by many and have a steady stream of supporters over the years.

Despite the long queue, the service remains friendly and polite. I queued and order to pay but I didn't know my table number. The staff was friendly enough to let me check and update her in a while. With the table number given, food will be served to our seats.

We ordered the classic style of prawn noodles as it is our comfort food. We had it with yellow noodles but you can choose to have Kway Teow, Vermicelli or even thick Bee Hoon. The dry version of prawn noodles was accompanied by a bowl of strong flavour soup. It was satisfying. The yellow noodle was tossed in chilli and crispy pork lards that elevate the taste.

Prawns in the bowl were halves and served with bean sprouts as well as kang kong. The fried shallots added fragrance to the dish but were not oily. 


The soup version of prawn noodles was better as it has the naturally sweet taste of the pork ribs.

The pork ribs were cooked to a perfect texture where it falls off the bone easily without losing their taste.

I love the robust and savoury prawn broth that packed a bit of the old school prawn noodles flavour.
For those who are waiting for their food, most of them will order Ngoh Hiong from the adjacent stall.

After all, Blanco Court Prawn Mee is still will be in my dictionary of Prawn Mee if I'm thinking of recommending Prawn Mee in Singapore.

The prawn mee that I have always been wondering of every time I pass by Beach Road. It was an impromptu decision on a Saturday morning and we made a trip down for breakfast, finally!

The man prefers to have a bigger bowl for his stomach and got himself a big portion at $5.80 instead of the smaller portion that cost $1 less.

Prawn noodle soup was topped with fried onions in oil, enhancing the flavours of the original bowl of noodles. The broth of the noodle plays an important role and at a very first mouthful of it, the taste of it had already stolen all my tastebuds away. It's sweet and rich flavourful soup was awesome.

There are not too much prawns in the prawns and pork ribs noodle. Sharing the same taste in the soup, this delicacy is undeniably one of the best in Singapore. Pork Ribs were cooked to such a way that meat fell off easily from its bone.

Yummy! I'm glad a trip to Beach Road is all worthwhile after all, the taste was real good!

There are a few handfuls of tasty prawn noodles I have known and Blanco Court's prawn mee was somehow comparable to those. If you have more to spend, try ordering the 3 in 1 Noodle that consists of Prawn, Ribs and Tail to enjoy a full dining experience or if you are keen on bigger prawns, try out the Jumbo Prawn Noodle!
