Large Serving from Pontian Hand-made Wan Ton Noodles

Location:
Stall 1-14, Hougang Blk 209 Food Centre
(Next to Kovan MRT Station)

Price:
Small Bowl: $2.70
Large Bowl: $3.20

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.

Wanton Mee!
by: Anonymous

Yup! tried it and for those who is like me (who likes tons of chilli in their noodle), this store does the sauces and the noodle to perfection!

The most recommending is the NOODLE!! It is extremely springy and would not turn "soft" and soggy even though u enjoy the noodles slowly.

Agree with u on the soupy wanton..the filling is ludicrously small!!..the fried ones are good with the crunch!

I'm embarrassed to say a $2.70 bowl of noodle could not fill up my bill!!..i need at least another bowl..if not, order a BIG bowl!!

The only down side is : the LONG Q!!

Tried a year ago, don't like it.

Recently tried a again, still don't like it. My friend says he rather eat the normal Wanton Noodle.

Hi to last poster

Thanks for your contribution.

However, I'll have to disagree with 'Save you bucks for something else'.

I did hear that the quality vary from outlet to outlet. But I get my weekly fix at the Pontian Wan Ton Noodles stall near Heartland Mall, and I think the $2.80 price is the best anyone can spend at a hawkers' centre.

Really not bad!
by: bee

I'm a vegetarian so, mayb not 'qualified' to give 5 stars. But even on special order of noods and veg only, I really love the noodles.

It's amazing how they dun add msg (it's stated on the board and I dun feel thirsty after eating) yet the soup tastes great! despite having just plain noods and veg, it just make me wanna go back again and again. It's in the noodles!

Btw, I went to Holland Village branch, not others. If I get the chance, I'll try other branches too...
