Revisited this Wanton Mee stall again (after 8 years!); they only open late at night (10.30pm - 3am) and the waiting time is always really long! Love the QQ texture of the noodles, and the fragrant sauce - it has that old school taste! The wanton mee also comes with char siew, mushrooms, shredded chicken and soup with wantons inside. It is a good plate of wanton mee and I understand why they have their fans, but I personally find that it is not worth the long waiting time. TBH, I can find other wanton mee of similar standards with shorter waiting times elsewhere.

It’s been 3 years since I last had the wanton mee here, and I’m glad to report that it’s still as good as ever! The price for a regular plate of wanton mee is now $6 ($1 increase from 3 years ago), but this is reasonable. The two stars of the show are the egg noodles that have a springy texture, and the char siew that’s fatty and well charred! The wantons are quite plump too!

I still remember wondering what the hype was all about surrounding Chef Kin HK Wanton Noodle (helmed by an ex-Crystal Jade chef), when they first opened in September at Yishun and people were standing in line for two hours to try their Wanton Noodles! 🙀

We tried their offerings recently at their newly opened outlet at Blk 59 New Upper Changi Road (where there was still a significant queue even after lunch hours), and while I won’t say that this is worth queuing 2 hours for, the standard of their food is certainly there!

We had their HK Wanton Noodle (Dry), HK Braised Beef Brisket Noodle (Dry) and HK Dumpling Soup. The noodles were excellent and very springy, and so delicious when tossed together with the savoury sauces! The Beef Brisket Noodles (beef was very tender) was my favourite out of the two plates! We enjoyed the HK Dumpling Soup too, which had plump dumplings generously filled with ingredients! Their chilli was a hit with us too; we liked that it was fiery and had lots of dried shrimp bits.

A third outlet will be opening at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 4 on 14 December 2021, so good news for wanton mee lovers residing there!

There’s just something about this stall’s wanton mee (located at Hougang 401 KPT coffeeshop) that keeps me coming back for more! The combination of the springy noodles mixed with the sauce mix brings out a nostalgic old school taste that is just so appealing! They are open till late too, which makes it a good supper option!

Finally tried the wanton mee from this relatively new wanton mee stall at Golden Mile Hawker Centre after seeing so many positive reviews on it.

Verdict: I really enjoyed my plate of wanton mee! Everyone has been raving about the char siew here and I gotta agree with the reviews as their char siew is really yummy! Nicely caramelised and charred, the char siew slices had a nice mix of lean and fatty! I liked the noodles too, which had a nice firm bite and the broth / sauce was very savoury. Wantons were well-stuffed and tasted pretty decent too. Will I be back again? Definitely!

Had saved Laifabar in my to try list ever since I saw good reviews of their wanton Mee when they were at Scarlet Hotel. They have since relocated to Lucky Food Court at Lucky Plaza and I finally tried their wanton mee recently.

Overall, this was a yummy plate of wanton mee! The char siew was lean, tender and well caramelised, the egg noodles had a nice springy texture and the savoury sauce mix (with the chilli sauce) was delectable. I’ll definitely come back to eat this if I’m in town and craving for a good bowl of wanton mee.

People who know me knows that I’m a huge wanton mee lover, and Hock Kee Wanton Noodle is one of the stalls that i’d definitely recommend you to try!

With a history of over 40 years, the current owner Mr Ong has been using the same recipe passed down from his father in cooking the wanton noodles! It has that old school taste that i really like, with super springy noodles, and drenched with a mixture of savoury seasoning and spicy homemade chilli sauce!

My second time visiting this stall and the taste was still very impressive. Noodles were springy & went really well with the chilli. The char siew was also very good; probably due to the fact that uncle marinates his own char siew. The only gripe i had was probably the waiting time, as they can be really quite slow in serving but hey as long as the food is good, i have no complaints!

Here is a good place to get your wanton mee fix in the Bugis area. The noodles here are the springy qq kind, with lean char siews slices and tasty wantons. Go for the set meal which will cost you only $5.50 with a drink of your choice.

PS. Apparently this is the only Tanjong Rhu Wanton Noodles outlet that does not use any pork or lard in their cooking.

The wanton mee from this stall has been on my makan list for the longest time and i finally checked it off yesterday. Overall, it was a very good plate of wanton mee; noodles were the rubbery kind with a very springy texture, char siew slices were lean and tasty but the wantons were the one that impressed me the most as each of them were so plump with generous amount of filling.

Kok Kee Wanton Noodle was one of my favourite wanton noodle stalls back then, and i was so happy that they decided to reopen again after suddenly shutting their doors a couple of years ago.

We braved the almost 1 hour queue (even on a weekday afternoon after lunchtime!) and to our delight, the wanton mee ($5) still tasted as yummy as before; with the all so familiar springy noodles drenched in their special delicious broth. We also ordered the fried wantons ($6) and signature vegetables ($8) which were both delightful as well.

Found a Thai style wanton mee that rivals Soi 19 here at Penguin’s Kitchen. The noodles were so al-dente, while the huge wantons filled with generous amount of shrimp and also the crispy & tender roast pork.
