Popular Prawn Mee stall, Long Feng Prawn Mee (龙凤虾面), closes its shutters on 27 Feb 2022

If you live in Tampines, you’d have heard of Long Feng Prawn Mee (龙凤虾面). Founded in 1989, the stall is helmed by a 67-year-old, known as Mdm Lim to regulars, and undoubtedly serves one of the best bowls of prawn mee I’ve had in Singapore.

Before calling Tampines Street 91 ‘home’ for 11 years, Long Feng Prawn Mee was originally located at Clementi for 18 years, before shifting to Bedok North. And now is set to officially close its shutters at noon on 27 February 2022.

Despite the many shifts, Mdm Lim has single-handedly gained a large pool of supporters from far and wide. It is with a heavy heart that she has to close shop for good, but it’s only right to do so due to the stall’s increase in rental rates and manpower shortage, and Mdm Lim’s old age.

After word of its closure got out, Long Feng Prawn Mee has seen snaking queues almost every day. She’s also been selling up to 200 bowls of noodles daily since then. Although more sales = more work, she’s happy to cook for customers who are willing to have one last taste of her yummy noodles before the official closure date.

Many are sad to see the stall close for good but, no one above a certain age should be working for more than 10 hours a day. It’s just not worth putting your body through so much stress. At least that’s how I feel!

Here’s to wishing Mdm Lim a happy retirement!
