It’s pretty unusual to find lard in Prawn Mee but if you fancy heapful of these sinful stuff you could find it at Champ’s Bistro, Centrepoint Bandar Utama. The Prawn Mee here is also reputed to be one of the most expensive due to its huge serving of pork ribs and ‘King Kong‘ sized prawns.
They call it the ‘Damn Shiok Hokkien Prawn Mee‘, priced at RM20.90 a bowl. And despite being shown in the menu as having three prawns, it only came with only two – huge and fresh nonetheless. Soup is ‘shiok’ alright, much credit to MSG. The chili paste adds a much welcomed kick to the noodles so I suggest you to double the dose.
Well, I don’t know whether I should be surprised, the addition of lard did make the noodles more delicious by enhancing the taste and aroma of the soup. Pork ribs were meaty but some parts felt a bit tough.
A fork and spoon will be needed to eat this big fella properly, using chopsticks would just make your life harder.
You can probably share a bowl with your partner if you want, as I feel finishing the entire bowl of noodles by yourself is quite ‘jelak’. If you are willing to spend it’s worth trying at least once just for the experience sake. Compared to those you find at hawker stalls, no doubt the taste is better and more authentic but be prepared for a major thirstiness later lol.
Wasabi Bacon – for me I feel it’s meant to be shared, not something you would want to eat all by yourself. There’s only so much saltiness you could tolerate at one go you know. If you don’t like wasabi at all my advice is to skip it.
I would rate the Ais Kacang (RM8.50) much better if not for the shaved ice’s coarse texture. Someone seriously need to give the blade a good sharpening.
