In recent years, we can see a boom of young hawkerpreneurs in Singapore. That’s a good thing for Singapore, as hawkers are what makes Singapore – Uniquely Singapore. We need to preserve the culture! Desmond, the founder of Sumo Big Prawn Noodle is one of the many who takes a leap of faith and dive into this hawkerpreneurship journey. Having read about the reviews of Sumo Big Prawn Noodles in other blogs, we decided to try it out ourselves this Saturday.
Getting to Sumo Big Prawn Noodle
Located in Ang Mo Kio 628 Market & Food Centre
Opening Hours: 9:00AM – 4:00PM, 5:00PM – 9:00PM
By MRT: Nearest MRT is Yio Chu Kang. You need to take a 10 minutes walk.
By Bus: You can take bus 269 from Ang Mo Kio Bus Interchange.
We arrived at Sumo Big Prawn Noodles at around 4:45PM. When we reached, there was already a long queue of people. Look at the queue, it’s crazy and business is good! We were lucky that we are one of the early customers.
Though the queue is long, the process is quite efficient. We waited for around 30 minutes for our noodles to be ready.
Sumo Lobster & Big Prawn Soup Noodle – $24.90
Comes with 1 Columbia lobster, two big prawns, and clams. Look at the lobster, pretty big right? This is the Columbia lobster which cost a little more (more premium and sweeter) than the Asia lobsters ($18.90). They ran out of Asia lobsters recently.
Sumo Big Prawn Bee Hoon Soup Noodle – $8
Comes with four big prawns and lala clams. This big prawn bee hoon soup comes with a smaller bowl as compared to the lobster soup noodles.
The first time we do when before eating the noodles is to taste the broth. As expected, their broth is rich and great. This makes a difference as the broth is what differentiate good prawn noodles from the bad ones. Also, the lobsters and jumbo sized big prawns are very fresh, tender and sweet. Remember to take their garlic and chilli padi sauce as well! The lobsters, clams and prawns taste better with the sauce.
Overall, we enjoyed the lobster & prawn noodles and we are extremely satisfied with our dinner. Who says hawker centres don’t have high-quality food at affordable price! Definitely planning another trip down.
