Prawn Noodles to end a chaotic YOLO run, why not? I’ve heard of Whitley Road Prawn Mee, Beach Road, Hock Prawn Mee etc but not this one. So credits to my buddies for finding this gem. Like what some people might say, it IS a hidden gem in a coffee shop! “See Beh Ho” Eating House or “Damn good” if you were to do a direct translation, is situated in the midst of residential blocks along Bedok Reservoir Crescent.
If you want good food, you have to queue for it. When we got to the coffee shop, there were at least 4-5 people in front of us. Once it gets to your turn, be VERY CLEAR on what you want.
Here’s how you should order:
- The kind of noodles you want.
- Mee Hoon/Vermicelli/米粉
- Yellow Mee/黄面
- Kway Teow/Flat rice noodles/粿条
- Chilli/No Chilli
- Special Order e.g. no beansprouts
When you’re prepared, go forth into the battlefield. Don’t worry as the lady taking your order is very nice. She’ll recite your order, almost like a rap, to another lady who will prepare the noodles and other necessary ingredients in a bowl before handing it to the chef.
Personally, I ordered the Pork Ribs Prawn Noodle (S$6) and went for the vermicelli/yellow noodle mix (米粉面) as I know it’s a combo that will not go wrong. The sauce right at the bottom of the bowl, followed by the noodles, then generous slices of lean pork meat and prawns, finally ending with fried shallots and a personal favourite, LARD. Both the pork ribs and prawns are cooked well. Noodles coated with their chilli was amazing. Here’s another tip, do the same for every mouthful if you can. Start with the noodles, the pork and prawns, and then the crispy goodies, all in your spoon.
