Salwa Mee Udang, I believe is one of the earliest, original Mee Udang stall. I label it ‘the original mee udang’. I had featured Mee Udang in my other blog but I prefer this Salwa version.
Firstly, the place is perched on the sea. So, the atmosphere is rather nice. When there is a high tide, waves even splashed into the shop! Secondly, this shop uses the Heinz Tomato Soup to make their noodle soup. (Heinz is a lot more expensive than Kimball and of better quality)
Thirdly, if we are lucky, the father himself will take his own sweet time to dish out his speciality. In the soup, I can detect a lot more secret hidden ingredients that you cannot find with other Mee Udang. There are some hint of lemongrass, fermented soya bean (taucheo) and some very ‘prawn’ flavour.
There was a big group of people of about twenty persons whom had made reservation. Hence, you can see a whole wok of prawns being cooked in the kitchen.
We ordered just ONE plate of mee udang today. Shared by three persons. I will blog the other half of what Salwa dished out in the next blog.
Location and how to get there available in the next posting.
