Po, the new Asian restaurant at month-old The Warehouse Hotel in Havelock Road, serves, arguably, the most upscale fried Hokkien mee in town - which comes with sweet, robust-flavoured red Spanish carabinero prawns.

It costs $32 and is called Carabinero Prawn Konbu Mee.

The softened noodles, which have been braised in a heady umami broth, are tossed with pork belly and lardon and sprinkled with sakura ebi.

I love this luxe take on Singapore's humble street food dish.

Another good dish here is the Paper Spring Chicken ($49). The breast is juicy and the glutinous rice stuffing hearty and appetising.

The restaurant has a beautiful interior and the locally inspired food has plenty of promise.
