If you love prawn noodles, you may very well have eaten big prawn noodles, the type that not only gives you big prawns, but with soup that are distinctly more flavoursome. It also usually has thick beehoon as a choice. Given it’s popularity and many stalls with sub-branches around the island, I must say that I am one helluva sua ku, having only eaten recently at stalls like Wah Kee, Hoe Nam and Whitley Road Prawn Noodles.

As such, I can hardly qualify as a prawn noodles cognoscente so it is quite pointless for me to judge prawn noodles stalls like the legendary Wah Kee or Hoe Nam. I mean what do I really know, right? Though there are substantial claims that they are some of the better big prawn noodles stalls in town, I somehow feel that I must at the very least, have eaten at least once at the other famous stalls to see how good Wah Kee and Hoe Nam really are.


Ren Ren Big Prawn Noodles at Joo Chiat

I was told that Ren Ren Da Xia Mian is a popular big prawn noodles stall with several branches around the island in places like Joo Chiat, Victoria Street and Jalan Besar. No matter how impressive a prawn noodle is or can be, one thing has to be kept simple: that is to be affordable. I mean there is no point of being impressive if I need to pay $10 to be impressed right?


Ren Ren Big Prawn Noodles $5

The first thing that registered a tick here is the prawns. These are fresh Banana Prawns or Red Leg Prawns. You get 4 prawns sliced into half(total 8 halves) and they all came with the right succulency. For $5, it sure provided me with a ‘good prawn time’, at the very least, better than at Whitley Road Prawn Noodles or Adam Road Prawn Noodles. If you come here with a prawn agenda, it will do more than a pass for you. The soup tasted absolutely yummy with the kind of flavour that seems to suggest a lot of hae bee(fried shrimps) were thrown into the soup. However my thirst later suggest that I might had been drinking MSG-infused liquid. The prawns were value for money but the soup seemed a little too ‘thick’ for my liking and it just doesn’t taste like something that’s been boiled fresh and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s been boiling for a few days.

– If you asked me, how much shiokness this prawn noodle can ride, I will say the prawns’ quality and quantity cannot be denied.

– If you asked me, did the flavour and taste of the soup blended okay, I will say the ‘thickness’ of it gets in the way. But all of it for $5, there is nothing to deride, for the genuine value surely cannot hide.

– It has at the very least, brought some smile, with the excessive ‘prawny’ pile. Against the best, this may not be a reply but it is no doubt a little special in my eyes….


Ren Ren Big Prawn Noodles $5

Price: $5

Conclusion: The prawns are generous, fresh and tasted like only lightly boiled – delicious. Cheap for $5. Would do well for you if you come with a prawn agenda. The soup were good but left a slightly bad aftertaste.

Likes: Prawns.

Dislikes: Soup seems to have MSG.
