Bei-ing Yun Tuen – Another Hidden Wanton Mee Spot
A year after the KL Shao Roast feature, I’m finally back here. It took me ages to get here from home (woodlands, mind you), but I’m glad Bei-ing was worth the trip. 35 years of tradition did not let us down. For those unfamiliar with the area, it might take a while to locate this place. Fortunately, Bei-ing Yun Tuen sits in the coffeeshop on the ground level of Roxy Square. That means aircon, yay! Oh, and it means higher prices too. The prices of the wanton noodles($4 regular, $5 large) and sides ($4~$6) are slightly on the higher end but the dishes are elegantly plated. Your day also gets a bit better as you’ll be greeted by this jolly old uncle when you place your order.
Along with egg noodles, you get a few char siew, two small wantons, fried wanton skin and a handful of greens. In this day and age, it is uncommon to see hawkers preparing their own char siew. Bei-ing still roasts their meats, and they sure are moist and nicely charred. If only we were given more than just a few bite-sized pieces of char siew though.. As for the other toppings, they were pretty mediocre. But take a look at that beautiful smear on the plate. It’s actually black sweet sauce!
The sauce helped to sweeten the slightly bland noodles. Texture-wise, the egg noodles were cooked perfectly. The noodles also remained springy throughout. I love myself a good bowl of spicy noodles, but I wasn’t prepared for Bei-ing’s chilli which was pretty fiery.
Fried dumpling usually comes with basic condiments such as chilli sauce or mayonnaise. However, the mayonnaise here is enhanced with a surprising tinge of truffle! The execution of the dumpling was top notch as well. The amount of filling to skin ratio is excellent. Encased in a thin yet crispy fried dumpling coat is a tantalizing mix of minced pork and prawn filling. You might forget that you’re in a coffee shop once you dip the fried dumpling into that delicious truffle mayonnaise.
The appeal of Bei-ing is undeniable. Although the wanton mee has room for improvement, I would definitely return for their delicious sides!
