A substantial portion of mee kia was served with few slices of thinly sliced Char Siew and a few stalks of vegetables. It came with a bowl of soup with 3 pieces of wantons.
Fan of fried pork lards would be delighted to know that a big bowl of fried pork lards was placed right at the counter for Self-Service. The nicely deep fried pork lards enhanced the overall taste quite a bit.
The mee kia was cooked well to give it the desired springiness and minus the unpleasant alkaline taste. It has got a rather minimum taste of spiciness with a well-balanced saltiness. The slices of char siew tasted a little too dry but flavorful.
The 3 pieces of wantons tasted a little old-school.
It was just a bit of well-seasoned minced pork wrapped in a piece of thin wanton skin. The soup tasted rather light with just a slight peppery taste with chopped spring onion in it. It definitely tasted much nicer than expected and served as a good alternative to the other stall that closed down.
