Pek Kio's Famous Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles 华记大虾面, now in Esplanade

Thursday, 19 January 2017


I was invited to Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles' media tasting some time last month,

Following the success and widely acclaimed fame of its prawn noodles at the Pek Kio stall since its inception in year 1951, Wah Kee 华记大虾面 has recently launched its first-ever restaurant at Esplanade! Housing 60 seats, customers can look forward to a first-rate dining experience through and through.

Amongst the multitude of loyal fans who queue to savour the dish include famous Hong Kong actor Chow Yun-Fatt and local celebrities. High-profile politicians have given their patronage as well.
Lovely ambiance soaked in the aroma of Prawn noodles.


What's different?


  1. There is air-con (for all us pampered Singaporeans) - yoohoo!
  2. The prices of the prawn noodles will remain affordable with a slight increase of $1 for its signature noodles
  3. Enjoy wine and a new menu with a wide range of fresh seafood, prepared grilled or steamed and served with special dipping sauces
  4. Introduction of technology (orders will be placed via iPads, which may heighten efficiency)
  5. Attentive service by trained wait staff on standby

Wah Kee's winning formula is its extremely piquant soup, which takes four hours to prepare. The gigantic prawns and al dente noodles also earn thumbs-up from its patrons. The mee kia is specially made for Wah Kee and all sauces are made in-house daily, using Wah Kee’s 65-year recipe.

We got to try the following dishes:
Big Prawn Noodle Soup (S$20) - soup versions and their dry versions. My heart goes out to the soup version, the soup is really perfect and lovely, featuring three gigantic and fresh prawns on a bed of al dente noodle.

Fresh French Oysters and Fresh US Oysters (S$48 per dozen): 
This is really fresh and lovely, the oysters are succulent and plump. You can further indulge in the enjoyment of the oysters by pairing it with a comprehensive range of wine.






Other new dishes that will be available exclusively at this restaurant include fresh Boston lobster, fresh oysters, French rojak salad, Wah Kee’s Style Seafood Oyster Omelette and more. Tuck into a wide range of seafood such as squids, half-shell scallops, flower crabs and more, all of which can be prepared grilled or steamed.
