Ah Lipp is a new stall that has recently opened at Bukit Batok Street 11, selling Penang hawker fare such as Penang Prawn Noodles, Assam Laksa and White Curry Mee. The stall adopts a queue system whereby customers place their orders, pay up and wait for their queue number to be displayed. A similar concept like clinic or hospital.
Prawn Noodles 4.5/5
Initially I wanted to order the big prawn noodle but it was not available. Hence I settled on the normal size prawn, Prawn Noodle ($6). The bowl of noodle comes with 3 pieces of prawn, tender pork ribs, pork slices and slices of fish cake, topped with fried shallots. The noodle is held together by a rich and robustly prawn shell flavoured soup base, which also has a hint of spiciness.
Assam Laksa 2.8/5
While I applaud the used of the thick beehoon for the Assam Laksa ($3.50) with cucumber and pineapple, I felt that the assam broth lacked of depth and it tasted rather diluted. While I understand the part on cost saving but it felt it is not assam laksa if I could not really find mackerel in the bowl of noodle.
White Curry Noodle 4.2/5
The other noodle dish on the menu is the White Curry Noodle ($4.20) which comes with sotong, fish cake, cockles, chicken and tau pok. I was excited to find cockles in the noodle. Just like how I enjoy my bowl of laksa. The broth is not as lemak as our nyonya but it is packed with robustness. Add the chilli sauce into the soup for the extra oomph.
Overall I am quite impressed with the prawn noodle and white curry noodle. It is worth the calories. However, the assam laksa still has rooms for improvement.
