What makes a good plate of wantan mee? Is it the noodles? Is it the mixture of the dark sauce? Or is it the side ingredients such as the wantans and the roast BBQ pork that makes people coming back for more?

Wantan Mee Stall

I’ve been patronising this stall for more over a decade. It’s rather nostalgic at times when I eat at this place because this stall used to be and still is the source of my late night suppers (and sometimes dinner too). It’s a family business whereby the mother will do all the cooking while the sons and daughter take orders.

Wantan Mee

What sets apart from other stalls is the egg noodles they use. Consistent and spring-y, these (handmade) noodles are mixed with a concoction of dark sauce, light soya sauce, pepper and a lil lard. It’s good but it’s even better when, on your lucky day, the father takes the role. I guess experience does play an important role in it.


Usually (and always), I’d order their wantans instead of BBQ pork. Not too small neither it is big, these cute lil wantans consist of minced pork and ‘zhou hau yu’. I wouldn’t mind to eat them on its own.

Chicken Satays

While you are it, checkout the stall nearby that sells satay too. Although they are not as famous as the overly-famous Kajang satays, they are better than some I’ve tried at other places. The meat was a lil dry on that day. Perhaps, they overcooked it. The peanut sauce (sorry, no photo of it) was not diluted as it was thick and filled with a decent amount of chopped peanuts. Priced at RM0.60 (for the chicken), a minimal of 8 sticks is required for an order.

So, tell me. What makes a good plate of wantan mee?

Old timers will know this place well enough while the younger generation might miss it due to its location. And I wouldn’t blame the younger ones since this shop is located along the busy road of Jalan Sungai Besi and the setup isn’t as attractive as those fancy restaurants in shopping malls.


I ate here once but that was a year back or so. And so, I’ve decided to make a trip again on Saturday noon for lunch with my friend.

Sui Kow

For starters, we ordered a bowl of Sui Kow. With ample amount of pork, prawns, fungi and water chestnuts, it’s definitely better than any other average joe stalls. But you might not like it due to a certain vegetable they used in it.

Sang Mee

My main course was Sang Har Mee while my friend opted for Sang Mee. The difference between them both is the ingredients in it.

Sang Har Mee

The prawn-based broth wasn’t overly egg-y but it was sweet and delicious while the fried wantan noodles was crunchy. Albeit it’s only 1.5 prawns used in my Sang Har Mee, they were quite fresh. My friend somehow stated that it’s the noodles that makes the dish tastes good. I’ve to concur with that statement.

They do offer other noodles such as Pork Rib Wantan Mee, Cantonese Fried Beef Kuey Teow and etc. But it is the Sang Har Mee I would go for whenever I’m at this shop for food ,that’s if I’ve got the time.
