Review: Restore Living and Old House Giant Hokkien Prawn Mee

Random walk around Tanjong Pagar today
Unfortunately, the rainy weather makes travelling more difficult
There was much lesser crowds, or probably because tanjong pagar would be more vibrant in the nights!

Headed to Restore Living at Tanjong Pagar for waffles.
This has an old-school feel, and its in fact a furniture + cafe shop.

Saw some people querying about the furniture in there.
But it ain't cheap! :O

We ordered the Berry Good set, which costs $9.80 ($10.80 after service charge)
Personally, it was quite an expensive dish, as the waffles were rather small.
But, it was still pretty decent.
The waffles was thick, and soft.
I particularly love its maple syrup!
The berries look nice doesn't it? A pity they're too small :(

Eating waffles is definitely not enough, so we walked around for a main meal
Passed by a stall called Old House, and I was attracted by this "恐龙 大虾面"(Dinosaur Prawn Mee)
Dinosaur? Prawn?
Decided to just give it a try. Take a look at the PRAWNS!!

According to its website,
Old House's Dinosaur Prawn Noodle uses only wild fresh ocean prawn as one of the key ingredients for its famous prawn noodle recipe. Cooked the traditional way taught by grandpa, the 30 years old prawn noodle recipe is regarded as an heirloom in the family. The traditional flavour is sure to warm you with jolts of reminiscence and affection.
I must say, the prawns are really huge.
What I love most about this dish is the soup base. It was tasty, but probably because of MSG?
Prawns wise, they are HUGE, but I felt it was too overcooked.
The meat could be more tender
There's also two pieces of pork, and in this case, it was rather hard.
If they could cook the meat longer, it would be more tender too!

Overall, a good experience in eating such a gigantic prawn.
It costs $12 a bowl, so it's up to you to decide if it's worth it!
There's a lot of other food to try out too:
