Bedok South (牛记) Niu Ji Prawn Noodle

You know how they say, behind every aged senior is a courageous past? One day, if you come across a once famous stall that is no longer commanding; remember too that they once had a glorious past.

It was strange, that in our numerous visits to the Blk 16, Bedok South Hawker Centre, i had never blogged about their very delicious fried prawn noodle. So popular among the evening diners, you have to take a queue and wait. I had only singled out their morning fare of soupy prawn noodle.

So many years had passed, with the hawker aging and their recipe, simplified to accommodate their weaken body. The fried noodle no longer carries that alluring burned aroma or the score of 100 points. But the sambal chili is still robust and the pork lard crispy. You could ask for an extra lime and the hawker is still all smiles. Use of fresh seafood was never compromised.

Frankly, a stall that still uses fine rice vermicelli for their Hokkien fried noodle is far and few between. I'm still eating here.
