Opening an eatery themed around hawker prawn dishes is a good idea, as items such as prawn noodle soup and fried Hokkien prawn noodle are really popular here. So Prawn Noodle Bar, which opened on Oct 1 at Duxton Hill, has all the makings of a hit.
It boasts a modern bistro vibe. On the back wall is a large neon sign of the word "nice" and the Chinese character for prawn. Together, they read "nice xia" - punning on "sia", a Singlish expression used at the end of a sentence to emphasise a point.
