A few weeks ago, having a bit of a craving for prawn mee while at Klang for some errands, we decided to finally check out Uncle Ooi Prawn Mee at Bandar Bukit Raja, Klang.
The menu here consists of about a dozen different main dishes, headlined with the Tiger Prawn Mee, signature prawn mee (soup/dry), and a few other variations of yee mee, loh mee, and curry noodle. Additionally, they also offer some side dishes such as roast pork, lohbak, fish cake, and so forth.
Since our aim was to satisfy the craving for prawn mee, we opted for their Tiger Prawn mee (RM 16.50) with an additional portion of fried shallots (RM 0.50)
What came was a bowl of prawn mee with 2 rather large Tiger prawns, along with the usual ingredients you’d find in a proper bowl of Penang prawn mee – kangkung, bean sprouts, sliced pork, 1/2 an egg, fried shallots, and yes, even the “regular size” prawns, all in a broth that I thought was packed with a thick and flavorful prawn head/shell flavor. Certainly not disappointed.
The big prawns were certainly worth the additional RM 6.00 over the signature version, they were fresh, juicy, and tasted fantastic. Having asked for additional fried shallots was indeed a great choice too, it was an umami overload and I’ll gladly head back there again.
