Only to have been thrown back to earth.
I ordered the dry version of Prawn Mee ($4 for small) which came with a few halves of de-shelled prawns, sliced lean pork and a few wisps of kang kong. The prawns were miserable and far from prawn glory. Perhaps I had ordered the wrong choice. But I did enjoy the tasty slices of lean pork and even though the kang kong was just a few strands, I enjoyed its crunch. Few stalls add kang kong now and even fewer are generous with it.
I can't help but comment on the sauce that came with the dry noodles. It's just too sweet with plenty of ketchup. The same can also be said of the accompanying bowl of soup sans the ketchup. It seemed diluted and the over-powering sweetness of rock sugar just didn't do it for me.
I have to say that on the whole, while this isn't shockingly-good for me, it was decent enough for a normal bowl of prawn mee. I'll gladly remain in the east for now.

Chew On This: It's been rumoured that this stall serves Crab Mee, with one whole crab, at night though I can't confirm this. Anyone?
