This morning, we went to Desa Cemerlang in search of 大蝦面 Penang Hokkien prawn mee stall at Anak JB coffee shop.

今天早上,我们到 Desa Cemerlang, Jalan Tanjong 好运来咖啡店吃火红大虾面卖的槟城虾面好吃。汤头够味。辣椒够辣。是我们最喜欢槟城虾面其中之一。

大蝦面 stall opened only six months ago (in Sep 2015) and has already made a name for itself among JB foodies for it's robust flavours and sambal chili.

While waiting for our order of prawn noodles to be served, I couldn't resist jumping up to take a picture of this pot of sambal chili. I already started to sweat and salivate just by looking at the fiery pulp and seeds under that red chili oil.

Our RM5 bowl of Penang prawn mee. In JB, hawkers take a lot of pride plating and presenting their food.

One of 大蝦面 stall's signature is their large prawns. Penang Hokkien prawn mee purists might roll their eyes at it. I too prefer the little shrimps of authentic Penang Hokkien prawn mee, these tasty large meaty fresh prawns notwithstanding. I am old fashioned that way ;-p

One mouthful of this robust crustacean savoury broth and everything changed. I am so in love with this broth that big prawn, small prawn, authentic or not isn't so important any more.

Swept off our feet by the broth, even this slice of fried fish cake which would normally be considered Penang Hokkien mee apostasy tasted really quite nice ;-D

We like the soup version of 大蝦面 stall's prawn mee so much that we quickly ordered a dry version to try.

Even before we dig into the bowl of noodles, this sambal chili is a not so subtle warning of what we are about to taste.

The noodles enveloped in a robustly savoury and spicy sauce will appeal to people who like deeply robust flavours.

We didn't have much chance to speak with 大蝦面 stall holder Mr Fong, who hails from Penang. He was extremely busy as he cooks all his food a la minute. For example, the fish cake slices are fried only when there is an order.

->> 大蝦面 stall is one of my favourite Penang Hokkien prawn mee now as I like their robust flavours.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
