7 Best Wanton Mee Food Stalls in Singapore Worth Queuing For
Looking for the best wanton mee Singapore has to offer to satisfy your craving for your favourite wanton dishes with good gravy and wanton meat? Then you’ve gotta check out the list of wanton mee stalls below.
Hua Kee Hougang Famous Wanton Mee
This wanton mee stall located at the corner of Old Airport Road Hawker Centre is very well received for its outstanding wanton noodles that originate from Hougang. Read more about this stall.
Kok Kee Wanton Noodle
Kok Kee has been famous since the previous Lavender Food Court days. When the food court was demolished years ago, people felt that they were missing this superb wanton noodles.
What people love about its wanton noodles is its chilli sauce that is unique because it is sweeter than many others. This is coupled with the sauce that contains secret recipe poured over the springy egg noodles. With soft bite of the noodles, plus the thin char siew meat and chewy wanton, it would surely be a miss to bypass this stall when you are strolling along Foch Road for a meal.
But the good and bad news is that – because they are so popular, they are sold out pretty quickly. In fact you would be lucky to be ever getting their wanton mee dishes once it hits just before 5pm, especially on public holidays or weekends!
Ji Ji Wanton Noodle Specialist
Located at Hong Lim Food Centre, right next to Chinatown Point and Chinatown MRT Station, this wanton mee food stall scores with both the office and tourist crowd.
The Ji Ji Signature Char Siew Wanton Noodle has been the best selling item since its first inception some 55 years ago when Singapore gained independence. Having a chewy bite, the egg noodles are slightly thicker than mee kia and do appear healthier to eaters with the lack of ‘ghee’ added into the ingredients.
Another drawing factor about this dish is the sauce that is fragrant and savoury with some sweet taste when you chew and bite. At $4.50, the dish consists of sliced mushrooms, char siew slices, wantons, vegetables and soup. This is simply affordable, ain’t it?
51 Ming Fa Wanton Egg Noodle
This wanton mee dish is more of a breakfast meal than a lunch one. It is another crowd killer in Hougang and sells out pretty early in the day. Read more about why this ticks in Hougang.
88 Hong Kong Roast Meat Specialist
Foch Road has another good wanton noodle opposite the aforementioned Kok Kee stall. Actually, in this wanton noodle, you can get possibly one of the best char siew meats in Singapore.
One good thing about the char siew is the moist feeling when you bite them. This is because they are made traditionally by being braised, blow dried, roasted and drenched with dark sauce after a sweet malt sugar marinating over them.
Do you know the unique thing about Malaysian style wanton mee? This wanton mee is actually done this way with sticky sweet sauce as the base. Though the wantons are not so good here, the char siew meats actually compensate for it and make it a good dish eventually.
Guangzhou Mian Shi Wanton Noodle
Wanton mee, as you know it, is a Cantonese delicacy. But how about trying the Canton’s original from Guangzhou? At Tanglin Halt, this is quite a good supper place, with its opening until 2am. In fact, it has been endorsed by local filmmaker Eric Khoo.
Well, the wanton noodles here are made the traditional way with simple sauce and thin dry char siew pieces. With an overall combination that makes the traditional taste good, the wanton mee here certainly attracts the late night revellers very much here.
Fei Fei Roasted Noodle
With thin and springy noodles, the wanton noodles seem ordinary initially. But look further, as the char siew pieces here are charcoal roasted in the morning to become tender roast pork pieces. The outcome – sweet caramelisation and the nice char outer layer. And the best part – the wanton mee dish only costs $3. Too good to be true nowadays!
