Tanjong Pagar

Tanjong Pagar was a historic centre for Singapore's Chinese community. It is now a cosmopolitan area within walking distance of the CDB with a wide range of old and new shops. It is a good place for a lunch time meal with office workers, a post work hangout area for pubs and fine dining and a pleasant place to explore cafes and eclectic shops on a lazy weekend afternoon.

Noodle Bar

One can probably get a good cheap bowl of prawn noodles opposite the road at Blk 5 Tanjong Pagar Plaza. But if you want to enjoy the comfort of slurping a bowl of prawn noodles in aircon, this is the place.

I ordered a Kopi C and prawn noodles. Paid about $7.

Prawn Noodles

This wasn't bad. The prawn and pork stock was sweet. I prefer my stock to be more "prawny" in taste but  this days, it is harder and harder to find that. After all, prawn heads and shells need to be used to achieve that making it a potentially very expensive dish. 
This portion is not large. So if you are looking for a large lunch, I don't recommend this place. But otherwise, i think its a good size for lunch.

Other dishes they have are laksa and other variations of the prawn noodle.

Location: 1 Tras Street #01-16 Orchid Hotel, Tanjong Pagar
Price: Usually under $10 for Noodles and a Drink
