The Neighbourwok 街坊

It has been quite sometimes that The Neigbourwok has been relocated to this coffeeshop which is still within Bukit Batok vincinity. While they are still focusing on Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee and Satay, they has also introduced grilled skewered prawns at $2 per stick.

The plate of Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee still tastes as good as before. The amount of Wok Hei was satisfying with the sweetness of prawn broth, pork belly as well as the eggs.  

Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee - $4.50

The Belachan chilli had enhanced the dish with a spicy kick. The prawns were plump and sweet too.

If you hear of the Dim Sum in Bukit Batok near the swimming pool, Lai Kee Poa Tin, you got to try out the Fried Prawn Noodle Stall there too. The Neighbourwok is located in the same coffee shop and selling 2 kinds of food, namely, Fried Prawn Mee and Satay. They have been operating for a few months since 28th June 2020.

Although they are relatively new in the neighbourhood, they are actually one of the best Fried Prawn Noodles in the district. The noodles were flavourful enough with "Wok Hei" taste and subtle sweet egg taste. Even though pork lards were being used in the process, the noodles were neither greasy nor "gelat". 

Fried Prawn Noodle - $4 (Small)

From strands of noodles to the thin strips of pork belly meat, they are generally well accentuated with the prawn broth. On a side note, their homemade Chilli had complimented the dish very well. 

Fried Prawn Noodle - $5 (Big)

The key components in a good plate of Fried Prawn Noodle consist of fresh prawns, pork lards bits, sotong, rich prawn broth, yellow noodles with thick white bee hoon, chilli as well as lime. 

On the other hand, the texture of the noodles is well kept in its shape, being still springy, unlike other places, you may find them already turning soggy when it is served to us.

There are 3 types of meat to choose from, Chicken, Pork and Mutton. The cost of a per stick of Mutton Satay is $0.80 each while the rest costs $0.70 each. 


Satays are skewed to perfection, accompanied by aromatic chunky peanut sauce. To elaborate, the meat was thoroughly cooked, especially for Mutton, most places that we ate, the mutton satay was quite tough, dried and gamy. The Neighbourwok had actually done a good job by providing such satisfying satay.

Ho Jiak!
