Housed in a low-key stall near Jalan Ipoh, drop by for a generous serving of Prawn Mee during an unorthodox hour for a breakfast dish (thank you) and hope for the queue to be less and the bowl to get to the table asap. A sip of the broth cooked with fresh prawn shells and pork bones for hours will make you understand the hype.
