Hoe Kee Wanton Mee – One Tonne of Wantons, Please?
Wanton noodles originated in Guangzhou. This delicious bowl which is made up of springy egg noodles, pork parcels, and barbecue pork gained popularity. Different versions can now be found in many Asian countries.
Our love for wanton noodles brought us to Hoe Kee Wanton Noodles, which sits in a 24-hour coffee shop in Serangoon North.
Besides wanton noodles, the stall sells other dishes such as Dumpling Noodle ($3/$4/$5), Chicken Feet Noodle ($3.50/$4.50) and Shredded Chicken Noodle ($3.50/$4.50).
I enjoyed the Dumpling Noodle, or shui jiao mian. The shui jiao was plump and juicy, and was filled with a mixture of pork, prawns and chives. Although it was a little under seasoned, the earthiness of the chives really stood out.
The wantons that came with the Wanton Noodle ($3/$4/$5) were understuffed — I definitely ate more skin than filling. The char siew was the only saving grace. Each slice of char siew has a good balance of lean meat and fat, a nicely charred exterior, and just enough smokiness.
Because it’s situated in a 24/7 coffee shop, diners can get their wanton mee fix whenever hunger pangs call. Do take note of the operating hours, as the stall is not open daily.
