Hokkien Mee, commonly known as prawn noodles, is a dish of either yellow noodles or rice noodles served in a thick prawn and pork broth garnished with ital (water spinach) and bean sprouts. It has a strong, spicy and flavorful prawn paste. A bowl of Hokkien Mee is usually served with slices of boiled eggs, fried shrimp, thin slices of lean pork and sprinkled with crispy fried shallots, as well as a spoon full of chili paste. Some cooks add crunchy golden cubes of fried lard to jazz up their bowl of Hokkien Mee. Usually a basic bowl costs between RM3.00 to RM3.50. Some Hokkien Mee stalls offer extra toppings such as pork ribs, mantis prawn, fish balls and roast pork at additional charges. It is slightly spicy but chili paste can be added to make dish spicier. It is one of the most popular hawker food locally and is available throughout the day and at night. This is a non-halal dish.
