Wan Li Xing – Yummy Wanton Mee with GREEN Noodles!
It has been brought to my attention that Wan Li Xing, a stall in Toa Payoh Vista Market, sells spinach noodles wanton mee! I’ve always loved spinach noodles. My mum used to always whip up a good plate of dry spinach noodles with some fishballs and xiao bai cai for my sister and me. A dish so simple, but full of love and utterly soul warming.
I obviously had to order the Spinach Noodles Wanton Mee ($3.50). The spinach noodles at Wan Li Xing were cooked to perfection. It was tossed in a house-made sauce, drizzled with sesame oil, and topped with slices of char siew and lots of vegetables (which I very much appreciated). The springy noodles had a subtle hint of sweetness.
The noodles from Wan Li Xing are sourced from a supplier, and I didn’t expect them to taste this good, but they sure exceeded expectations. The char siew looked dry but was surprisingly yummy. Never judge a book by its cover! Although it lacked the char that most would expect, it was good enough for me. The owner of Wan Li Xing, Uncle Beh, mentioned that he would love to roast his own char siew if there was more space in his stall.
I normally don’t request for chilli to be added into my dry noodles, as it usually overpowers everything else. However, I enjoyed the inclusion of chilli this time at Wan Li Xing. It enhanced the fragrant and the overall flavour of the dish. What a delightful breakfast!
Wan Li Xing’s wantons are made fresh daily. Encased in the silky smooth wanton skin is a well-seasoned filling. My only gripe was that there were only two wantons. For $3.50, I was expecting at least three wantons. Nonetheless, they were delicious, and so was the soup, which was light and comforting.
When I first tasted the Shredded Chicken Hor Fun ($3.50), I thought it was slightly bland. However, the taste grew on me. The light gravy bore a subtle herbaceous note. Although it wasn’t as robust as I’d have like, I still enjoyed it. Complement it with some green chilli and you have yourself a hearty and pleasant dish.
Uncle Beh and his wife have been running Wan Li Xing for five years. The lovely duo starts their day as early as 4am to prepare the necessary ingredients. If you are in the vicinity, you should definitely drop by!
