Guangzhou Mian Shi Wanton Noodle – Good Wanton Mee in Tanglin Halt That Opens Till 3am
Please let me have the honour of introducing my favourite supper spot for old school wanton mee. When I was crazy over this previously, I could eat here at least once a week. I would always have a craving for its springy mee pok and addictive sauce every now and then. I have been patronising Guangzhou Mian Shi Wanton Noodle since 4 years ago, since it is quite near to where I stay. This stall operates from 530pm – 3am!
The Wanton Noodle with Mee Kia ($3) was slightly similar to Hong Kong-style wanton noodles, but not as al dente in texture. The chilli mixed into the sauce was average, nothing to shout about. And yes, the char siew was as dry and tough as it looks. This may not sound like a good plate of wanton noodles, but the soup and wantons are the reasons why I kept coming back weekly.
I like that the soup had a mild aftertaste of ginger which was very different from the typical dried anchovies broth. I also loved the 4 plump and smooth wantons which were swimming in the delightful soup.
Since the char siew isn’t fantastic, I strongly encourage you to go for the Dumpling Noodle ($3), because it comes with 3 huge handmade dumplings, and opt for the MEE POK with KETCHUP. As much as I’m a chilli-lover, I have not had the noodles with chilli ever since I tried it with ketchup. All of my friends whom I’ve brought to Guangzhou Mian Shi approve this combo too. I’m that confident because I’ve been eating this for years and I’ve tried different combinations too.
The mee pok has always been cooked just right, such that it is always springy. On the other hand, the mee kia gets soggy and sticks together after a while. I wished that each dumpling, though already stuffed with a lot of minced meat, could have more prawns instead of just a third/half of a prawn. But the wantons and dumplings are already flavoursome enough!
The queue is the longest during dinner time but fret not, because orders are done quite quickly. Some people reckoned that Guangzhou Mian Shi Wanton Noodle got famous because of the handsome dude who takes orders at the counter, but I think the charm of this stall is still the dumpling mee pok with ketchupppppp!
