Goshhh I was hankering for a good plate of wantan meen (noodles) for more than a week. The one I had last week, did not manage to satisfy my craving, in fact it was a total disappointment.
In my book, a good wantan noodles would mean... a plate of fresh noodles done kon low (dry) style where the sauce concoction have a hint of sweetness to it and not overly salty; the fresh noodles ought to be cooked al dente in order to have a springy texture; and must topped with slightly charred char siu (barbeque pork) slices with slight fatty streaks and a coating of sweetish and sticky caramel!!! The wantans (dumplings) that come with ikan bilis (anchovies) broth are secondary to me, darn, I wonder if they serve only char siu meen rather than char siu wantan meen that would come out of my mouth automatically?!!?
Thank goodness I managed to cure my cravings just now! Woottt!!! I had my fix at Koon Kee. Well, it's not as good as before but at least they met those points in my book of wantan meen. Boy, I was so glad and I'm still reeling in the happiness heh!
Koon Kee is located just beside Hon Kee Porridge along Jalan Hang Lekir (right smack in the middle of Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown). Alternatively, they have a stall at Chinatown Hawker Center which is just opposite of their hole-in-the-wall shop.
