my OPS primary school buddy invited us for a homecooked prawn noodles on 15.7.2016. ^^
of course the real chef is the wife la!
wa…this prawn noodles really was mo tuck ten…lagi sedap…totally irresistable! ^^ should have taken 1 more bowl la…but tummy already bulging…
he has an internet tv so we could youtube songs with subtitles & do our own karaoke.
it was loads of fun actually. we did cantonese 上海滩，帝女花，要拼才会赢, & chinese & english songs. & 2 of our friends broke into cha cha…lots of talents in OPS la…
host provided some small bites, like century eggs pickled ginger.
like the branded medex giant topshell from mexico..
& we had the koropok from penang i think?
but the thing worth waiting for…tantantantan! was prawn noodles…
must say is way beyond expectations leh…beyond 3 sigma la…even we started from high expectations…
& in this case it was really difficult to do for 13pax & have enough the next day for another group of ravenous boys (my friend’s son’s friends) visiting.
& it’s made bowl by bowl so the noodles were al dente & warm, with my friend taking orders for each bowl. not easy for homecooked preparation, and of course we only had soup version. not easy to make the chilli also…
the soup was the bestest, very smooth, intense but not overly, and very flavourful.
i took my usual dry noodles at WEH, served as usual with a separate bowl of soup. soup was excellent as always, but perhaps the experience of taking soup with dry prawn noodles & taking a more savoury prawn noodles soup whole is somewhat different, so i could not actually decide that alan’s soup was better or not..both were very good!
and the pork ribs were very good too. my friend used better quality prime ribs for home dinner. texture was very good & flavour too, but maybe alan’s pork rib overall was better, though the recent ones i tried were not the best i had at his WEH stall.
& of course my friend had pig’s tail which should make the soup more flavourful.
we had some fruits after prawn noodles.
i took the almond jelly, was pretty nice.
& according to my friend’s wife quite easy to do.
another friend brought 糯米荔枝, the tiny vanishing seeds type.
another friend brought pandan & durian rolls.
& i brought 6kg ah seng durians orh kue + D13.
the D13 bottom right packet was the best, very intense & flavvourful.
& through, many friends were belting out songs.
& 2 friends broke out in cha cha. very fun & enjoyable evening.
