When it comes to nostalgic food from my secondary school days, Pontian wanton noodles is definitely one of the dishes that never fails to throw me back to my teenage years. I immediately get flashbacks of my teen self slurping down these noodles in my sweaty green pinafore at the basement of Far East plaza after school.

The bouncy noodles are covered in a sweet yet salty black sauce, with a spicy kick of chilli. Also, whoever was the genius that discovered mayonnaise goes perfectly with fried wantons needs to become the next mayor of Pontian right now. This is a generally unhealthy meal that’s perfect for the overaged kid in me who is living in denial plus reluctant to grow up and face my adult responsibilities.

This has a total belly score of *drumroll*: 2.75/5 🍝
