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.

Aside from Prawn mee, I think there are other stuffs like Hokkien Mee and Loh Mee is pretty good too.
some say the tau eu bak and chee yoke fun too
Saltiness and MSG, later thirstiness… Now i wouldn’t like that in my food :( By the way, heard that the taste were inconsistent, soup were not hot enough, etc. Depends on ones preference and luck, i think. Have yet to try on my own. Will consider about it. Once in a while wouldn’t hurt.
About the soup’s warmth, it could be an issue because you see the bowl is so big.. scientifically it has more surface area so gets cooler faster lol.
but seriously, you feel the soup gets cold fast because the portion is so huge, the time taken to eat the prawns alone would have rendered the soup cold anyway
delicious kah? the rm20.90.
unker may i know how to make the leave comment as fb ID?
you comment in my facebook comment section lor, it’s just above the blog’s comment section
vkeong, BM prawn mee is much better and cheaper ah!
Have tried the Char Koey Teow here, some 5 years ago. Simmilar in Standard with the Lorong Selamat (Aunty in Red Hat / googles) Char Koey Teow in Penang , except for the pricing of course.
THis place i eated quite a few times over the years. Chicken rice, har mee, cantonese horfun, tau eu bak, pretty good stuff BUT yes, sometime quality will go up and down. But if you around the area its quite a safe bet compare to the others.
