It comes as no secret that a good bowl of Prawn Noodles lies in a few factors, the texture of the noodles, prawns cooked just right QQ, chop stick tender pork ribs and last but not least THE BROTH. Many of us who love hawker fare will definitely love a good bowl of soupy Prawn Noodles, and we’re no execption!
The key is in adding a good amount of prawn heads, and boil it for 2 whole hours with the pork ribs. While doing all that, make sure that you use good prawns as well, for optimal flavor. Cooking your own bowl will most certainly warm your soul up!
The soup is enough for 4 pax serving, for the noodle portion just multiply accordingly
