With so many noodle bars and seafood restaurants throughout Singapore, it can be difficult to find the hidden gems – it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. But at places like Geylang Prawn Noodle, the food shines through. With their relaxed coffee shop feel and old-style cuisine, it's not to be missed.
Ideal for group dining
Bringing together the land and the sea, the eats here combine all sorts of pork and prawn goodies with noodles. They're delivered in handy cartons that'll make it easier for you to split up the dishes, and create your own banquet-style meal at home. And the good news doesn't stop there, you won't have the washing up to do after either.
As you can probably guess from their name, Geylang are experts in all things prawn noodle-y. Whether you opt for the wet or dry version, you're guaranteed that every mouthful will be packed with those all traditional herbs and spices that sum up Chinese cooking. We'd particularly recommend the Big Prawn with Pork Ribs Noodles, where delicate prawns are soaked in a hearty broth and accompanied by succulent rib meat.
Sticking with tradition
Geylang has already made quite a name for itself on Singapore foodie scene. A buzzworthy restaurant with chefs that pour their heart and soul into every dish, the dishes here are authentically awesome. And that's down to the use of only the freshest ingredients to rustle up warming, nutritious food that's just as filling as it is big on flavour.
They like to keep things traditional here too, so it's no surprise that one of their favourite dishes to serve is also the simplest. The menu is compact, with the guys focusing on offering up a small selection of dishes that knock it out of the park every single time. The Big Prawn Noodles are one of the most popular dishes here – it's simple, delicious, and it'll leave a smile on your face.
All about the broth
Why not give your prawn noodles a twist with the addition of pork ribs and pig's tail? These mouth-watering cuts of soft meat add an extra hearty layer to any noodle dish – just take the Prawn and Pig Tail's Noodles. But that's not the end here – they put the power into your hand and let you customise away. Soup or dry? Beansprout or shallots? Ketchup or chilli? And that's not even including the choice of six noodles you get too.
Vegetarians can get in on the fun here too with their Rojak. This scrumptious traditional tossed salad dish makes a refreshing meal, and when cooked Singapore-style, you'll be served a combination of crunchy cucumber, vibrant pineapple balancing the taste of sweet and tart, benkoang, bean sprouts and crispy deep-fried tofu.
