Finally, I have found one of a authentic Penang Prawn Noodle or Penang term known as Hokkien Mee (which is totally different from KL version). This new shop Prawn Noodle King at OUG that just operated about 2 weeks is now serving one of a very authentic Penang Famous Mantis Prawn Hokkien Noodle at Macalister Road. The owner have retired from the hawker center and one of a regular KL folks that love it so much bought the recipe over and now continuing the recipe in KL.
since their opening, I have return twice and will be more to come.
Love their Lou Han Guo also where it is cook with alot of dry ingredients that the after taste give you the dryness on your palate. Love it.
In this shop, they only focus on the most authentic serving of Prawn Noodle. There is no menu yet at the moment however these are the classics from the original owner:
- Original Prawn Noodle @ RM 6.90
- Prawn Noodle with Roast Pork
- Prawn Noodle with Pork Ribs
- Prawn Noodle with big prawns
- Prawn Noodle with Roast Pork + Pork Ribs
- Prawn Noodle with Roast Pork + Pork Ribs + Prawns
- Original Special Noodle with Mantis Prawns
It is hard to find such a great chilli that they cook from strech with careful selected chili ingredient and cook over long hours. It is so fragrant that two spoonful of this, make the prawn soup broth more flavourful and spicier.
If I get to choose mine, I would always go for add Roast Pork + Pork Ribs + small shrimps. @ RM 17.90
Love the clear soup base that filled with prawn head taste and sweetness of the broth is pack with flavours from bone and shrimp. After taste of it do give you a nice lingering sweetness that stay afloud in your palate.
Some of you might not like it as it is filled with sweet ending, however this is one of a classic recipe that we Penangnites love.
My another bowl of Classic Prawn Noodle with Mantis Prawns. Pretty generous with the ingredients too. Currently it is in one of my top pick for Penang Authentic Noodle in Klang Valley.
