Wantan Mee Wiki

Wanton mee or Wantan mee (Chinese: 云吞面) is a Cantonese noodle dish which is popular in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. The dish is usually served in hot soup or dry stir in black soya sauce, garnished with leafy vegetables, Char Siew (roasted barbecued pork meat slices), and together with wanton in a separate bowl. The types of leafy vegetables used are usually kailan also known as Chinese kale. There are various versions to the dish, with the Hong Kong version using prawns and no char siu inside the noodles. Another type of dumpling known as shui gao is sometimes served in place of wanton. It contains prawns, pork, spring onions with some chefs adding mushroom and black fungus.

Succulent Chicken Feet stewed till the skin just slips off the bones when you suck it. All this in a thick black soy sauce with chinese mushrooms, noodles and pickled chilly. Ahhhh...

Where to eat it : I like the one in Newlane, the big coffee shop just off burma road, next to Sunway Hotel.

This is another variant of wantan mee. You can add virtually any garnishings, to this, extra char siew and pork cutlets have been added. Sorry about the blurry pic as this was at night and I can't wait to eat it!

Sometimes a nice plate of wan tan noodles really hits the spt in the morning. Not exactly a high fiber meal but it sure tastes better than cereal.

I just recently discovered another yummy wanton mee in town. It is at Carnarvon Street, Kwong Fatt Lee coffee shop. You can also try their fresh prawn dumpling. They also have pork leg noodle on every Saturday, gonna try it next time. Plus their Hainanese coffee & toasted bread also taste good. It is worth trying.
