A quick visit to Singapore Shiok in the Eating World food court, Chinatown for har mee.
Lately we've been obsessed with har mee - Malaysian prawn noodle soup. We've been eating har mee all over Sydney and all have been compared to our favourite at Singapore Shiok, an unassuming hawker stall in the Eating World food court in Chinatown.
After so many har mees I'm compelled to go back to Singapore Shiok to try it once more to make sure it's greatness isn't all in my head, that my selective memory and taste buds weren't conspiring against me. One mouthful of and I know I'm sane, partly at least.
I just love the broth here: it tastes fresh and homemade, in other places the broth tastes like it is padded out with stock powder. Our theory is that since Singapore Shiok only has around twelve items on the menu they can afford to put plenty of time and care into their prawn broth. And it's not just the broth we love: the roast pork belly is divine, the lardy pork croutons are sinful and the prawns are fresh and juicy.
This is best har mee we have tried in Sydney, runner up is Temasek in Parramatta. Lots of folks recommend the har mee at Hunter Street but we are Singapore Shiok pimps all the way. It's all a matter of taste, we recommend trying them all.
Singapore Shiok! is in the Eating World food court, 25-29 Dixon Street, Chinatown, at the top of the mall. Open daily 10am-10pm. See our post for our other visits here.
