What do We Like about Choon Prawn Mee House? -The prawn mee broth which was rich, and full of prawns’ flavour
The traditional Prawn Mee was very nice, I think prawn-based soup was a little bit on the sweet side and not as spicy as I'd imagine it to be, which fits my taste buds. Nice!
I would recommend this prawn noodles shop, which can tend to have a strong, flavourful broth and the addition of the fried shallots made the dish quite fragrant. They also cook their noodles to just the right firmness – not too soggy and not undercooked either, and their prawns are sweet and fresh. The pork ribs do not fall behind either – they are incredibly tasty, meaty and very tender. The only thing is that the portion is quite small for the price so prepare to order and spend a little more here.
We wanted to eat at O&S coffee shop but it was full house with no empty seats to even share a table so we walked to Choon Prawn Mee House which is just a few shop lots away to have our breakfast there instead.
Additional remarks: Prawn mee and loh mee is very similar to Penang style, nice! It is not so spicy and suitable for people who can’t take spicy food. Dry curry mee is sweet and so CSI.
Delectable Spicy Prawn Mee Choon Prawn Mee offers a varied selection of ingredients for upgrading the basic prawn mee. Prawn Noodle and Vermicelli Mix with an addition of prawn and pork rib RM13.00 is the most popular choice for this dish. A gentle dip of the Homemade Sambal Sauce will greatly enhance the overall taste of the prawn mee.
Overall, Choon Prawn Mee House is a great place to enjoy a bowl of Penang Prawn Mee, despite being slightly pricier than those you get at coffee shops. With everything said, John’s Penang Prawn Mee still remains at the top of my list.
But what I often crave is a simple bowl of prawn noodles, that stands on its own with or without the extras. And that’s what I get at Choon Prawn Mee House. My regular option is the prawn noodles with pork ribs (RM11), which comes with a sprinkle of deep fried shallots for aroma and flavour. This is sweet and adequately thick so the sambal chilli becomes an option, not a necessity.
Food rating 7.5/10 , pretty good consider Penang street food! -Stamped-
