One of the Best Wanton Mee in Singapore

by Pah Mun Wai
(Singapore, Rivervale, Sengkang)

If you want to taste really good and authentic Cantonese styled wanton mee, then you must pay a visit to the 'Guandong Wanton Mee Stall' at Maxwell Road Hawker Centre.

Last Monday when I was there for breakfast at about 0730h, I had a plate of dried wanton noodles which was really good. What I find delicious was that the mee kia was a little springy and well mixed with a spicy sauce that was so frangrant and pleasing to the taste buds, I believe, because of the liberal use of good quality sesame oil.

The dish also comes with a generous helping of tasty, chunky slices of char siew, albeit a little burnt. But somehow the burnt barbecued pork blended well with the spicy mee kia, giving it a pleasing smoky textual. The wanton, however, was rather ordinary.

On the whole, I would give it a 3.5 on a scale of 5. I think that this stall is worth a visit if you want to try something that will remind you of the Cantonese styled wanton mee of days gone by.

I've tried Guangdong Wan Ton Mee, have you?
by: Gabriel Tan

Ha! Finally, I made my way down to Maxwell Road Food Centre today. And yes, I tried the noodles from Guangdong Wan Ton Mee.

You're absolutely spot on, Mun Wai. It's a great recommendation:

1. I simply gorged on the noodles like a glutton. The texture is just great. And I loved the lingering flavour of the char siew (roasted pork) in the mouth.

2. The soup was a bit bland. But then again, I did not come here for the soup.

Here's a photo I took of the Wan Ton Noodles:

Looking for Soup Wanton noodles with red vinegar
by: Charlie

Thank you very much for your recommendation. I m looking for Wanton Noodles just wanton and no Char Siew and must serve the noodles with red vinegar. Very Seldom get to eat this kind of noodles in Singapre. Only find them in Hnng Kong. If you know where to find the non-spicy soup wanton noodles that served with red vinegar. That would be great.

The famous Guangdong Wanton Mee in the Tanglin Halt is one of the most famous store in the area. And don’t get confused with the same name store at the Maxwell road. Try this it is the number one and great service.Beverly Diamonds The recipe is an old school one but the taste is awesome.

I tasted this wanton noodles when I happened to visit one of the hotels in Singapore. They were of different taste and can be easily made. We tried to prepare the same but there came lot of changes in terms of taste.
