Ah Lipp Famous Penang Prawn Noodles

Read about this place online. Given the stall owner’s declared preference for wild sea prawns, we were excited to hit this place up. 

We ordered the big prawn noodles ($10) to go. The generous portion came topped with two huge ass prawns. They were meaty and full of flavour unlike the lacklustre variety one would often find at most prawn noodles stalls. The soup was sweet, robust and had a slight viscosity to it. 

Noodles were unfortunately overcooked and lacked the bite I was looking for. Arguably it could be due to our taking it home. However given our better experience taking away from other further prawn noodles stalls, this might not be the case. 

We also got a penang assam laksa to go. This was however lacking in the punchy flavours often associated with this dish. It just wasn’t sour and spicy enough. I really enjoyed the long uneven rice noodles though.
