Foon’s Thai Recipe – Tasty Thai-Style Wanton Mee at Old Airport Road
Lady luck is finally on our side! We visited Foon’s Thai Recipe twice in the past two weeks but they were closed. We finally got the chance to try their Thai style wanton mee yesterday. Foon’s family used to run a wanton mee stall in Hatyai so Foon learnt the recipe from them. Having moved to Singapore for more than a decade, she decided to open a hawker stall to sell wanton noodles.
We ordered both the dry and soup version of wanton noodles, which is priced at $4 per bowl. For the dry version, normal mee kia is accompanied with char siew, wanton and chilli flakes. Sauces such as fish sauce, chilli sauce and char siew sauce have also been added in. Foon gets all her sauces from Thailand and makes her own chilli sauce, lard oil and char siew sauce. You can toss some green chilli in as well, for that zesty finish.
The noodle is springy with a nice bite, while the char siew is tender and not too dry. The size of wantons are slightly bigger than what we get in a plate of local wanton mee. They are generously stuffed with minced meat. Just give the bowl a good toss, and you’ll be enjoying mouthfuls of flavourful wanton mee. We found it tastier than our local version.
While Foon’s dry wanton noodle is decent, the soup version didn’t impress. The noodles and char siew are too bland while the soup is too peppery for our liking. We only realised later on, that we have to mix and match all the Thai condiments placed on the counter of Foon’s hawker stall before savouring this dish.
Besides going for the two famous wanton mee stalls at Old Airport Road Food Centre, you can consider trying Foon’s Thai Recipe the next time you’re there.
