1The Top 6 Best Prawn Mee in Singapore

best prawn mee

Our Great Prawn Mee hunt has come to an end – and it’s finally time to see who tops our list! We have tasted prawn noodles from more than 20 stalls – some famous, some not, to unearth gems and inevitably some duds. We even tasted some stalls twice or thrice for due diligence. Are we tired of prawn mee by now? Yes. But was it worth it? Totally.

That said, we observed that despite Singaporeans’ complaints about the rising prices of hawker food, you’d find them unflinchingly handing over $20 for a bowl of premium prawn mee. Which goes to show that price is not a boundary to enjoying good food  – ordering a bowl of prawn noodles for $10 to $20 has become commonplace. With such great margins, it’s no wonder that even young enterprising people have been jumping on the prawn mee bandwagon, ushering in a prawn noodle boom in Singapore!

So without further ado, here are our top picks of the best prawn noodles in Singapore. Note: our picks are in no order of merit. If we’ve missed out any prawn mee contenders you feel strongly about, let us know in the comments!



  1. have you try the one at beo crescent? ha ha prawn mee. authentic prawn mee whereas the one you guy mentioned taste of pork lard. go try it. you will be surprised.

  2. Hi I found a very tasty 排骨虾面 store, name like 明记 prawn noodle at blk 302 at woodland street 31. I had tried several times and keep going there whenever I crave for prawn noodle. A must try for any one looking for good 排骨虾面. Cheers

  3. The number 1 is true but the pictures do not look anything like what they serve. Next they cut the prawns in half and not as per what you said in the post. Just giving my 2 cents worth as people might be misled by your post.

  4. Hi, thanks for the feedback and we have double verified the photos posted and confirmed the picture was incorrect on the Beach Road Prawn Mee. We have corrected the photos immediately and sincerely apology for the errors and any inconvenience caused. We are truly grateful readers like yourself for pointing out the mistake, a mistake is mistake and we will be more prudent in future to ensure the accuracy. Thanks!

  5. You should try the Shun Shun Prawn Noodle at Blk 824 Tampines Street 81. The pork rib noodle soup is amazing. There are a few shun shun in that area, but only the one in blk 824 is authentic and delicious!

  6. Hv you try out soon huat prawn noodle house at serangoon ave 3 coffeeshop blk237 .the broth was super and whenever weekend the Q was super long

  7. Hi, you should try this prawn mee if you have yet to and you will definitely include it to your list. Best to go there around dinner timing because that’s when the original cook is around as that is a 24 hour shop. Its commonly known as the “Geylang Lorong 16 Prawn Mee.” Whether you are having it soup-base or dried with bone rib soup on the side, they taste equally delicious. And the chilli pays even more compliments to the prawn mee if you are eating the dried-base.

  8. Taste is subjective and we fully respect your view. Do share with us if you have any good recommendation. Thanks.

  9. How about the one at fusionopolis place? The Red Noodle and bottle bar. Instead of lean meat they serve with Japanese chashu
