Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle 小弟炒虾面

So much of positive reviews on the internet about Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle that claims this is one of the Best Fried Hokkien Mee in Singapore motivates me to try this. Since we will be nearby Serangoon area, we went ahead to try out this dish cooked by the 2nd Generation Hawker.

Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle

To my surprise, Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle is located at a secluded or what we usually called it "ulu" coffeeshop that is not near any MRT and on top of that, parking is a total challenge on a weekend against their limited operating hours as most of the lots are for season parking. It will be better to keep a lookout on their Facebook page before heading down to avoid disappointment in case they are sold out for the day.

Buzzer for your order

I had the bigger portion at $5 and it was indeed that the portion was not that fantastic as compared to others.

I will prefer the wet version of Fried Prawn Noodle and Xiao Di's has this criteria fixed. The wait for us was about 30 minutes for our 01 plate of order. The fried prawn noodle is garlicky and fried in rich stock gravy. Ingredients comprise of fresh prawns, slices of squid, slices of pork belly, egg and crispy pork lard. The flavours are thick and robust, with a tad of "wok-hei" taste but for those patrons who are more incline to a more intensive flavour of Fried Prawn Noodle, you may leave this place disappointed. 

Some of the Ingredients

So what's the verdict? I would say the taste is decent for a plate of Fried Prawn Noodle but if I were to compare to the ones I had on the West side of Singapore, this is of no competition. However on a side note, many commented that the chilli was special. I can't agree more as it has a mixture of spicy flavours with hints of Cincalok. I love that chilli taste but as a whole, we still find that the main subject and focus of the dish should be on the noodles not on chilli.
