Wen Wen - Storefront

If you’re wondering if Wen Wen Pork Rib Big Prawn Mee has closed for good since their previous location at Geylang Bahru Market & Food Centre is now undergoing renovation. Not to worry, they are now at an more accessible location at Old Airport Road Food Centre.

We took the chance to visit them on their first day at their new location. The boss Mr Richard, is super friendly and apologized profusely for making us wait for the fresh crabs to arrive on that day.

Apart from offering staple items like Prawn Mee ($4), Pigs Intestines Noodles ($5), Pork Rib Noodles ($5), Pig Tail Noodles ($5.50) & La La Soup ($5). They offer a Seafood Hot Pot ($50 onwards) that features a prawn-based broth used for their prawn noodles as well.

The unique and interesting thing about the stall is that you can buy your own liao (ingredients) and the stall will prepare it for you to add it to the hot pot. They even de-frosted the pork slices and cut the crab sticks for us. Where else can we find such good service these days?

Wen Wen - Walking to stall

After a trip to the nearby supermarket, we were all ready to pop by the stall and tuck into our warm, comforting seafood hot pot.

The stall at Old Airport Road is a slightly smaller unit compared to their previous stall at Geylang Bahru Food Centre. Just look at how well organised the stall is.

Wen Wen - Fresh Crabs

Finally! The fresh crabs from India arrived from the supplier and are separated into two different boxes to differentiate the quality of the crabs.

Upon placing your order, the owner Mr Richard adds in the different seafood ingredients to a pot of broth to intensify the flavours before serving.

Here’s our Enoki mushrooms, cheese tofu, crab stick, chinese cabbage and egg tofu ($18.05) that we got from the supermarket (Shabu Pork slices not in picture).

We couldn’t wait to snap away just looking at the mesmerizing colours of the Seafood Pot. Take it slow in the beginning and add your ingredients to the seafood pot to allow it to absorb the flavours of the broth.

The Seafood Pot comes with a variety of ingredients (crabs, prawns, clams, pigs intestines, pigs tail, pigs skin and pork ribs). Our version had baby abalone added to it which had a super smooth, chewy texture and pleasant briny flavour.

Other premium ingredients such as crayfish are available as well, but do call to check for its availability before going down.

Wen Wen - Soup with ingredients

The broth was extremely flavourful from all the seafood goodness boiling away in the hot pot.

Wen Wen - Noodles with Beehoon

You can either have the soup with the ingredients on its own or make it more substantial with the free-flow noodles that are dressed in lard oil, chilli and topped off with crispy fried shallots.

The ingredients in the Seafood Hot Pot are all very well prepared. The crabs from India were extremely fresh with tender sweet flesh that can be pulled apart easily from the shell.

We really liked the crystal-like pig’s skin and pig’s tail that was packed full with flavour and a bit of collagen for a rich meal.

Based on the Seafood Hot Pot experience that we had, we can predict queues forming even on weekdays. Do call to reserve your Seafood Hot Pot in advance as there are a limited supply of seafood that they bring in for each day.

If you’re dining in a small group or don’t have time to slowly enjoy the seafood hot pot experience, try out their premium noodle offerings such as Abalone Noodle ($22.80) or Abalone, Pork Rib & Big Prawn Noodle ($18) as well.

Expected damage: $50 to $150 (Depending on number of people dining)
