We first passed by this unimpressive stall after having breakfast at ICC Pudu (one of my favourite weekend breakfast place when I have to go into the office). Hubby was attracted by the fact that it's crowded (a hint its probably serving good food as with most restaurants).
Of course if you are looking for a polished and clean eatery, this place will be far from it but appearance aside, the food is decent.
We finally went last week and the food was quite nice. Curry mee wasn't available yet when we were there at about 8am so we had the wantan mee instead. The noodles were slightly softer than the usual wantan noodles. However, I like the dark soy sauce used and the pork lard in the noodles helped lift up the whole dish. The Char Siew were tender and sweet with crispy edges burnt to perfection, and the wantans were just amazing pockets of minced meat and prawn goodness in delicious broth. The upgrades from small to large were insignificant in prices but the portions were definitely obvious.
They warrant a visit from any wantan mee lover at:
