If you're a prawn mee lover, you'll surely know Deanna's Kitchen - a popular hawker stall owned by Chinese Muslim revert Denise Deanna. After reverting to Islam, she found it difficult to find halal prawn mee that tasted like the version she ate growing up so she began to cook her own. From selling out of her home to pop-up sales to opening up a physical hawker stall - the story of Deanna's Kitchen is definitely a Singaporean success story! ?
The first stall opened in Toa Payoh in June 2017 - and as of November 2019, they've opened 2 more stalls in Jurong East and Bedok! From home-based requests to 3 hawker stalls in 7 years? ? We're so excited that you can now have a delicious bowl of prawn mee no matter where you are. ?

For those unfamiliar with Deanna's Kitchen, you must know that it's probably one of the only few places in Singapore where you can try halal authentic Chinese prawn noodles. The broth for this dish is traditionally made by simmering pork bones but Deanna’s uses chicken instead (plus prawn shells, anchovies and other ingredients) to create a rich taste that will keep you full and satisfied even after you've finished the bowl!

With all the flavours packed into one, the broth turns out slightly sweet and not too overwhelming, which makes you crave more every time you slurp it. There are various ingredients to choose from (prices start from $3.50) – from regular prawns to big prawns and even bigger ones! Did we mention that they're incredibly generous with their portions too? So, be prepared for a feast. ?

Or you can also choose to have clams, crayfish and lobsters, depending on your taste! Don't forget to add their special homemade sambal too for an extra kick - the burn of the chilli really adds something special to the dish. ? We wish we could order the sambal on its own - it's just that good!
