So we headed to Asli Village at Downtown East looking for something and ended up buying something else. Ever happened to you? Luckily for us, it was a pleasant surprise!
We chanced upon a shop selling one of the must-haves when we see it... WADEH!!
They called themselves Royal Wadeh (which means they have to be good right?) and we saw a couple of newspaper clippings featuring the couple in-charge, Mr Mohamed Aki and Ms Hafizah, who were busy behind the counter preparing their much coveted Wadeh.
|Tiger Prawn Wadeh ($1.50 each, $5 for 5)|
Looks great right!! Makes me feel like walking over and getting a pack now LOL
This Wadeh was actually quite unique in a way. I've had 2 types of Wadeh. One is the dough type which is floury and sometimes even fluffy. The other type is the dense type with bits of lentils (dhal) inside so you get a unique flavour too.
Well guess what? This Wadeh has the best of both worlds!
This Wadeh has the nice dough texture which I love because it's still fluffy!And on top of that, you can see they incorporate the dhal into the Wadeh so you get a great bite.
The Wadeh is also really tasty but if you want to spice things up, bite into the green chillies!!
One thing that's actually as important as the dough itself is the topping and it's getting really hard to find good quality ones nowadays. When I think of Wadeh, it's normally the ones we buy at the pasar malam and the prawns are either really not fresh or really small.
Well, at Royal Wadeh, we are talking about Tiger Prawns and we are talking about fresh stuff too!
And for the price we are paying, it's really really worth it!! The difference in price is comparable to what we normally pay and we are talking about a premium product here!!
Royal Wadeh has more than just Tiger Prawns on the menu though!
Really interesting toppings like Mussels, Crab Claw Meat, Baby Squid and even things like Salmon and Soft Shell Crab!! Interesting or what!!
You can see them frying up the Wadeh fresh and hot right before your very eyes!
Tell me that doesn't get your appetite going....
And of course, like most things, best enjoyed piping hot!!
Adam's Verdict:Tiger Prawn Wadeh 3/5
Maryah's Verdict:Tiger Prawn Wadeh 3.5/5
This is definitely a shop we will probably be visiting a lot. Not only because it's near our place but also because they have a good product! Feel like having some Wadeh? It's at Pasir Ris and confirmed power to the gedegak!
PS they even have delivery for large orders plus catering for events like weddings!!
