五香虾饼 Five Spice Prawn Fritters

I have a soft spot for prawn fritters (虾饼 xia bing), and this stall at Tanjong Pagar Plaza sure didn't disappoint my salivating tastebuds.

Selling the delectable local dish 五香虾饼 (wu xiang xia bing); an irresistable assortment of home-made prawn fritters, ngoh hiang, pork liver rolls, savoury egg rolls and pinkish pork sausage, be prepared to beat the clock as the owner only operates for a short span of 2-3 hours per day (from 11am till 2pm, or whilst stocks last).

Fried Bee Hoon (rice vermicelli) is the sidekick of choice when tucking in to 五香虾饼. We were delighted to find fried pork lard and some greens in this stall's version. Lucky us, it was also the last plate of bee hoom for the day!

Did I also mention that the prawn fritters are made and fried upon order? Feel free to ignore the oil and calories for once and indulge in a dish so stuck to its roots; its almost like you are munching on tradition.
