One Prawn & Co by Red Marble

One Prawn Noodle is by a band of young and passionate individuals who seek to keep the Singaporean culture and heritage alive. Their prawn noodles came from inspiration from both Penang prawn noodles and Japanese Ramen Broth. Gwyneth Ang with an experience of more than 10 years heads One Prawn Noodle.

I went there on a weekend and there was already a long queue in this coffee shop environment. A good thing was that we were handed the menu and got to decide what to order while in line waiting.

While waiting for the food, we ordered some beverages.

Ice Lemon Tea & Barley
Ice Lemon Tea & Barley - $2.50 each

No worries about under or over-ordering, just try out their recommended selection of fried Chinese fritters consisting of Crispy Prawn Cracker, QQ Sausage Handmade fishcake, Pork Ngoh Hiang Roll, Century Egg and Fried Beancurd.

I ordered the soup version of Prawn noodles with noodles of my choice. One Prawn Co served the noodles and ingredients separately.

While I have ordered the soup version of prawn noodles, I still get to have a bowl of earthen clay pot soup with ingredients. In fact, all prawn noodles ordered will come with an earthen pot of soup no matter if you order soup or dry version. 

The broth was rich and full-bodied. They brew for hours in order to achieve the taste. Not only that, every bowl of soup is painstakingly made daily, making sure that the prawn head were well blended and squeezed to adjust the distinctive flavours. This unique way of extracting flavours stands out from most Prawn Noodle Stalls.

Lala & Small Prawns
Lala & Small Prawns - $8

The Lala were fresh and the amount given was quite a handful. It enhanced the seafood taste of the soup and also its chewy meat with the naturally sweet flavours was something I'm looking forward to.

We had the Dry Prawn Noodles with Braised Pork Ribs & Small Prawns too. The pork ribs were cooked to fall off the bone kind with the slightest bitting effort. The soup in the claypot was rich and robust, with a taste slightly different from the Lala & Small Prawns version.

Prawns were easily de-shelled and with this, we quickly toss them into the dry noodle and mixed them together with lard, sauce, Kang kong and beansprouts.

After all, I will say that this is not a usual bowl of "Hae Mee" (Prawn Noodle). Besides using a claypot to hold the warmth of the soup, the soup holds a unique taste and best, no MSG was used.
