Its a Wantan Meen's Life

Not known to many people, I have this special relationship with Wantan Noodle since I was at a very young age ... i practically grow up alongside wantan noodle. My mum used to rent a stall at this kopitiam in Kampung Baru Ampang selling wantan noodle and everyday after school and on weekends I am forced at canepoint will have to goan help her.

Therefore I gets to eat wantan meen everyday! I think if you smell my breath carefully .... you could smell wantan meen! LOL!

Maybe i m addicted to it, I must eat wantan meen at least once a week or if possible 2-3 times a week would be better! Other than being a Wantan noodle addict I m also the wantan noodle expert! I know which wantan noodle stalls is good or bad and needless to say I could make very tasty wantan noodle too!

My favourite is of course the "Kon low" dark sauce wantan noodle, I never seems to be able to like the soup type ... derno why.

Now my little devil seems to Inherited this wantan meen addict genes, same like me he too loves the dark sauce type of wantan noodle not forgetting the wantan too!

After a few years of being married to me, my wife seems to be fond of wantan noodle as much as me and our little devil.

Now I can truly claim that we are surely one Wantan Meen family!

Spring onions or i believed its called shallots in yingrish can really enhanced and bring out the flavour of a plate of wantan noodle, I always asked for extras when i place my order.

Charsiew - BBQ pork
I m very selective when it comes to charsiew, most charsiew are not properly roasted these days as charsiew roasting requires alotsa time and patient. Nowadays they just dye the pork with red dye and cincai cincai cook it .... lazy farkers! Thats why i rather not to have any charsiew at all than having bad charsiew.

This is "Jai-Meen" which means vegetarian wantan noodle. I m not really a great fan of meat, I do eat meat but if its possible I would prefer to go without any.

Prawn Wantan
Most of the wantan noodle stalls would only offer pork wantan, but some more upscale restaurants would replace the pork wantan with prawn wantan and of course in the process they will ask you to pay more la!

Stir Fried wantan noodle
Actually wantan noodle is pretty versatile, you can use it to make soup noodle or dry sauce noodle or even fry it.

Other stuffs that would go well with Wantan Noodle :

Pickle Green Chillis
This pickle green chilli are being made by soaking precut green chillis into vinegar for at least 2 days. They are not as "hot/spicy" as they used to be and it also have this sour sweet taste to it. a perfect compliment to wantan noodle.

BBQ pork ribs :
BBQ pork ribs is also a great compliment to wantan noodle, sadly this dish is not widely available and because it is difficult to prepare less and less wantan meen stalls carry them in their menu.

What would a wantan meen be without wantan right?! But as human being is getting lazier and greedier, today you cant seems to find very tasty wantan with all kinda ingredient in them.

Roast Pork
Roast pork is still is one of the favourite dish enjoyed by the chinese community all year round but little do people know that roast pork goes well with wantan noodle too!

Soya bean Milk and Chinese Tea
After all that wantan noodle and bbq pork and wantan and roast pork rib and roast pork you definitely need something to wash down all the food with right? Soya Milk and chinese tea seems to be one of the best and healthy choice.

Ok kautim! Now could anyone tell me where I can find a nice plate of wantan meen in KL?

    1) Jalan Pudu- It is at the same row as the Maybank branch and a bit further up at a corner of a T junction. The Hakka owner makes the noodle himself and there is no preservative. It is up to you to order in either black sauce or without. I prefer without so that the original taste is not tainted.

    2) I used to prefer Koon Kee noodles but alas the "spring" in their noodles are no longer there.

    Only good wantan mee stall will make good soup noodle. You never fond of it because you never meet one, kekekekekekek. And a good bowl of soup noodle should have only 2/3 bowl of soup, and this will make 1/3 of the noodle stay above the soup "breathing".

    Acidulous : The dark sauce are caramel, not dark soya sauce. It flow like thick honey. The stall must thinning the sauce with hot water, soya sauce,etc. Look for the "elephant" brand, a rectangular old time sauce bottle.

    There are 2 stalls worth trying in PJ State. One is at this kopitiam right beside UOB Bank. The other one is at this kopitiam(behind Kedai Telekom shop).
    If you happened to be in Kuching, ask the cab or friends to take you to Kota Padawan or 10th mile bazaar (which also means it's 10 miles away from town), must try the kolo mee at this shop called Swee Sen. You must order its special which comes with home-made fish balls and huge prawn. The shop is always packed on weekends.

    @anony, where is ss2? i always go there

    wingz, got wai sek kai, call medan ramah, the new happy garden, u come i take u there. u got msn? so far ppl i bring there say nice

  32. invisibleghost :ya im from s'wak...

    wingz :try the one in Green Road but i forgot the shop name ledi...

    if u like to eat pig spare part kolo mee/cheng kolo mee go lau ya kheng... ;)

  33. k i found out the name of the shop adi. it's called Restaurant Ho Weng Kee. as you turn in to SS2 from LDP, turn to the right on the first turning. go furthur straight and you'll see a row of shophouses. it's there, somewhere at the end (near the end of the 3rd row if im not mistaken. there are 4 rows i think).
