Social media is inundated by hawkers and the rest of the community sharing food-related posts – and this is understandable. As the Covid-19 infection numbers rise across the sunny island, people are forced to stay home and most are not allowed to consume their meals in public spaces.
If you, like me, are a horror hazard in the kitchen, then dabao is the way to go. Luckily for us non-domestic Goddesses, Singapore has a wide network of delivery services such as FoodPanda, Grabfood and Deliveroo. These days, we see more delivery persons coming on board and as these people zoom around to pick up and deliver our food, we should also remember that they are braving the virus outdoors so we can fill our tummies.
Sorry you had to risk yourself for my McSpicy…
Geylang Prawn Noodle, a popular eatery situated in Paya Lebar, is now delivering islandwide. So for those who are craving for quality, rich hei mee, here’s the place to look out for. And instead of keeping part of the delivery fee, they are promising that 100% of the delivery fee will be disbursed to the delivery drivers to help them during this difficult period. How nice!
Back to their food.
Apart from their prawn noodles, there is also a good selection of wu xiang (five-spiced crackers) and rojak available.

If you are a hawker food lover, you’ll agree that hei mee and wu xiang makes the best combination ever! And if you love the rice vermicelli a little thicker than the usual bee hoon, this is the place to order from.
Their prawn noodles are highly customisable and you can choose options such as no beansprouts and ask that the de-shell the prawns for you. It’s like you are ordering on the spot yourself!
To place an order, you may WhatsApp them at +65 9117 7527. Payment for the food is via PayNow or PayLah, and the $10 delivery fee is paid to the delivery drivers directly.
