For some reason, I was dying for some prawn mee today. It has been ages and by ages I mean – years!, since I last had a taste, so the one I finally have today has to be good or else – it is gonna suck. After researching online, I found several foodies recommending Prawn Noodle King as the go-to for tasty prawn mee.
So, here I was in Taman OUG, walking towards the restaurant, looking forward to the mouth watering noodles. Entered the eatery, looked through their menu and guess what – I entered the wrong restaurant. At least, I was not too far off, lol. Ended up just next door. I initially wanted to leave and make my way over to the prawn mee shop but upon sitting down and looking through the menu, I decided to give the food at Down to Bones a try. Guess what, I was told that I could also place an order for the prawn mee here, since they have a friendly relationship and all. They brought me the menu and went on to place the for me once I have decided. I did not even need to move a muscle. How awesome is that.
and ….. this is how I ended up tasting the food of two eateries in one go, lol. I ate everything in Down to Bones though, so I did not check out how Prawn Noodle King looks like, interior – wise. As for Down To Bones, some pictures mysteriously disappeared, so all I have are these 2 images, lol. Will update it once I revisit this eatery. I certainly will as I am looking forward to giving their pork ribs a try.
Menu for Down to Bones
The menu here is small, with mainly 6 items offered. These guys are mainly known for their pork ribs. I however, did not feel like having ribs today, so I opted for Chicken V2.0 instead.
Chicken V2.0, 18 ringgit
This was delicious. It was basically herb roasted chicken with butter garlic sauce + coleslaw + mash potato. The butter garlic sauce was the bomb!. The consistency was thick, a little sweet and flavorful. It certainly did add loads of appeal. The chicken was crisp on the outside, tender and meaty in the inside. Add on the sauce? Yummmm! The mash on its own was yummy. By the end of it, I wished the dish came with more mash, lol because it was good. Loved it.

The Original, 6.90 ringgit
I decided on The Original because I’ve already had a chicken dish, I did not want to add on more meat. It was goood ! Spicy, packed with flavors, soooo good! I was literally sweating halfway through because it was spicy and it does not hit you right on. What it does is that the more spoonful of the soup/gravy you take in, the more spicier it starts getting. It hits you late and by then , your forehead is all sweaty, lol. I enjoyed my experience though. Not many eateries serve prawn mee that still gives me a kick and this one right here does. Yumm! The Original comes with a generous amount of mee hoon and yellow mee + bean sprouts + egg + ham + plenty of spicy, flavorful soup. I loved every bit of it. Certainly worth another try.
Would I head here again?
Yes !! I most certainly pay these two eateries a visit again. Totally worth it.
