Ang Mo Kio 453 Wanton Mee : my new favourite

I did not actually take note of this newest stall in the food centre till my dining companion pointed out. He said, "Is this a new stall? Look at that long queue!" This stall has a bright yellow signboard and it stated "Ang Mo Kio 453 Wanton Mee". My guess is they are likely moved from Chong Boon Food Centre at Block 453 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10 to here. I went for a late lunch on a weekday, it was near 2 pm at that time with a short queue of about 4 people in front of the stall. When it was my turn, I wanted to go with Wanton Mee ($3.00) and Dumpling Soup ($3) but was told that the Prawn Dumpling Soup has already sold out. I asked, "Closing soon?" and the Auntie replied, "No, not yet. We usually close at 2ish." I decided to add extra wanton. She asked, "Add another $1 for wanton ah?" I nodded. I also requested to have an extra amount of chilli to be added. While waiting for my order to be ready and I asked the Auntie, "This stall moved from Block 453 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10?" Aunties replied, "Yeah, that food centre." 

There are 2 sizes for Wanton Mee, the smallest portion is at $3 and the largest portion is at $4. There are also Prawn Dumpling Noodle, Shredded Chicken Noodle and Chicken Feet Noodle on their menu. Their Wanton Mee is different from most others. The mee kia is only mixed with chilli and no sauce beneath. It served along with ingredients like a few slices of char siew and vegetable then topped with fried lard with pickled green chilli by the side. Auntie asked, "Do you want your green chilli with the noodles or by itself?", which I opted to have it together with the noodles. To start, tossed it well with the chilli and you could see almost every strand of the mee kia was nicely coated with it. It is the chilli that set it apart from the others, it has a comforting level of spiciness which brought forth the flavor. 

I added $1 for extra 4 pieces of wanton together with the other 3 that are included in the $3 portion.The wanton has an old-school taste, the filling which consists of minced meat was lightly marinated with a light peppery taste.

There is always a queue and the waiting time is usually about 15 minutes or so, it will be longer if some of the customers in front take away a couple of orders.

  1. I lives nearby and consume their wanton mee often. I'd like to add on that their food standard can sometimes be bad. Maybe they decide how to cook depending on their mood. Another thing is, the hygiene practice is not very good. Sometimes, I spots a tiny hair like nose hair. Which is damn gross!! I actually stopped consuming for quite a few weeks.
