Fatty Cheong : wanton mee with fried egg

There are 2 stalls by the same name in this food centre by the same owner, the original stall is to focus on roasted meat and the newer stall is to serve wanton mee.  I happened to seat right beside the latter stall and caught sight of 不见天云吞面 and decided to give it a try. The portion consists of a sunny-side-up fried egg and 2 wantons with noodles. There were a few customers before me so I stood there for about 5 minutes before receiving it.

I was pretty excited to try the char siew, it did not disappoint. It is comparable with another stall at Tiong Bahru Food Centre serving the same dish. The addition of a fried egg has no relevance as it did not enhance the taste, it is kind of 画蛇添足 in Chinese. The adding of fried egg is actually started by a noodle stall at a coffee shop in Bukit Merah. The owner of that stall added it to the wanton noodle for her nephew who follows a vegetarian diet.

My dining companion commented, "The char siew is very nice, it has a good balance of fat-lean ratio for the desired tenderness." It is made from from the unexposed armpit of the pig, supposedly the part that is highly sought after. Noodles were cooked to the right texture. They serve the chilli separately on a saucer. 

This is a worth trying Wanton Mee if happen to be in this food centre.

  1. I was at Lao Gu Ban the other day, Eric of Ah Hoe mee pok was there manning the stall. So it is true, he started a new venture.
