As the name suggests, this stall started in Pontian, Johor, Malaysia. And what great wan ton noodles they dish out!
In keeping with the Malaysian style of wan ton noodles, Pontian serves their noodles in a variety of sauces.
You can request for them to use only their distinctive black soya sauce. But I opted for a mixture of all their sauces - black soya, ketchup and their 'secret sauce'. I detected a hint of sesame oil, which gives the noodles a nice fragrance. Absolutely loved it.
Their noodles? Springy and of a very 'chewable' texture. The stall holder makes sure that the sauce is thoroughly mixed with the noodles before serving it to you.
Their char siew (roasted pork) is also just right - fired correctly (= no charring) and sliced to a nice thickness.
2 types of wan tons are given - deep fried and soup-ed ones. I love the deep fried wan tons. But those in the soup are simply too small and need more fillings.
My verdict: 4/5. Try it if you are in the area. You won't regret it.
