This humble noodle stall is amidst of other stalls in this food centre at Toa Payoh Lorong 7 and they have been around since the 50s though not at the same location. The stall is manned by an elderly lady with a younger man. That lady was rather friendly and chatty too. She asked, 'Have you ever eaten a really old school wanton mee?'. I said, 'I have eaten so many versions till i am not sure what exactly is old school wanton mee'. Auntie pointed to a poster and asked, 'Do you want to learn how to cook wanton mee or happen to know a friend that is wanting to learn? We are teaching for free.' She continued to say, 'We are doing our part to keep the hawker culture going.'
Amongst the other choices of Lor Mee, Chicken Chop Noodle, Fish Soup and Fried Rice, i decided to go with their Wanton Mee as this is their signature dish.
For just $2.50, it serves with a substantial portion of noodles, a few slices of nicely grilled char siew, some greens then a handful of fried pork lards together with a bowl of soup with 3 pieces of wanton in it.
Apparently, i could not quite tell what is so old school of their Wanton Mee as it tasted quite similar to some of those that i have eaten but it was quite tasty and i enjoyed it.
