Time Out says

This prawn noodle stall alone is a good enough reason to warrant a visit to the Potong Pasir neighbourhood. Reputed for serving some of the best prawn noodles in Singapore, River South (Hoe Nam) has been around for more than five decades, and it’s easy to see why they continue to draw snaking crowds – their broth is one of the best we’ve tried. Prepared with prawn heads and shells and simmered with pork ribs for more than 8 hours, the broth is rich and full of umami flavours. The pork ribs big prawn noodles (from $9.70) is a must-try – we prefer the dry version (with the soup served separately), featuring fresh and plump prawns and tender ribs served atop a bed of noodles tossed in their housemade chilli sauce. Other popular offerings include the small prawn pig’s tails noodles (from $9.70) and the baby abalone big prawn noodles (from $18.70).
