Da Shi Jia Big Prawn Mee 大食家大大大虾面

When I find the environment and food are good, I will make a return. This is a return visit in a short span of time and this time around I had also brought them a new customer. 

We opted for the big prawn noodle out of the 4 given sizes and chose the preferred type of noodle.

Big Prawn Noodle - $11.80

Prawns are cut into halves and this makes it easier for us to deshell them.

Did not take notice the other time but the ingredients in the bowl are not just fish cake and prawns. They do have a small minced meat patty in the bowl of prawn mee.

While both drinks tasted good with Sour Plum, my vote still goes to the refreshing Green Apple Drink with Sour Plum.

Da Shi Jia Big Prawn Mee is located in one of the shophouses along Killiney Road. With its embossed and big Chinese characters signboard that tells everyone that they are doing "big big big" prawn noodles.

Da Shi Jia Big Prawn Mee was founded by Seth, the son of the Big Eater Seafood Restaurant Group (Zi Char Chain). This restaurant is listed under the Michelin Bib.



The Interior is brightly lited with traditional Chinese ornaments hanging down from the ceiling. It kind of gives a modernly furnished feeling but still retains the traditional vibes with wooden furnishing and oriental tiles, not forgetting the big hanging frame hanging on the left wall right after entering the restaurant featuring the Eight Immortals crossing the sea.

We ordered the set meal for 2 pax and it comes with 2 Mains, 2 Sides and 2 Drinks at $46.80.


Out of curiosity, I chose to try on the Wok-Fried Big Prawn Bee Hoon. The plate of Big Prawn White Bee Hoon was yummy. Coupled with a generous amount of pork lard which elevates the dish's fragrance together with the chopped onions and garlic.

If the dish is ordered on ala carte basis, here's the pricing, $16.90 for Big Big Prawn (大大虾) & $19.80 for Big Big Big Prawn (大大大虾). The name of the prawn mee sounds playful, isn't it?

The first mouthful was surprisingly delightful -  A burst of Wok Hei Flavours in my mouth and the stock is totally awesome with umami flavours. It was thick but it does not bring out the heady prawn head taste which is what I prefer. It won't go wrong ordering this.

Ingredients include celery stalks, pork slices, fisk cake slices, onions and big prawns that were halved. The dish also comes along with a bowl of flavourful prawn soup. These ingredients were complemented by the smoky flavours from the Bee Hoon.

So Yummy!

The traditional prawn noodle on the other hand was doing alright without overpowering broth. It might not be the best one among the popular traditional prawn noodles but it is better than the average one.

Ala Carrte: $ 6.80 / 11.80 / 15.80 / 18.80 (Depending on size of prawns chosen)

2 Sides

There are a variety of side dishes to order apart from Salted Egg Chicken, there are Beancurd Skin Prawn Roll, Fried Fish Cake Crispy Spicy Winglets and Vegetables of the day.

Ala Carte: $6.80

Their Handmade Hae Zou is a side dish that is worth ordering. The deeply fried prawn fritters are delicious and traditionally complemented by the sweet sauce given.

Ala Carte: $6.80 / 9.80

2 Drinks

I'm not a fan of green apple but this drink had given me an addiction. The natural sourness from the green apple had struck a good balance with the Sour Plum Powder. It tasted sweet and refreshing after all.

Ala Carte: $3.80 / Glass

Will I come back again? Though I am not a big fan of Big Prawn Noodles, I will still make a return as their Wok-Fried Big Prawn White Bee Hoon left me a good impression. At the same time, I will not mind bringing my friends/family who is in the search of prawn noodles.
