One evening I wanted to eat wantan mee but it's hard to find good wantan mee at that hour. I know most will ended up at the Sungai Besi wantan mee but seriously their quality seems to have really gone down the drain that I won't grade it as wantan mee anymore. Suddenly I recalled Restaurant Hung Kee is opened at night now but not sure if they serve wantan mee cause they also serves dai chow (stir fry) dishes and noodles. So hubby suggested we take a gamble.
Boy as I walked in the place, I was really glad to see char siu (bbq pork), siew yuk (roasted pork) and roast chicken hanging on the hooks. Loads of fresh noodles on the display too... wooohoooo very the happy hehe...
Since this place have always been labelled as "cut throat" place, we're more cautious in our order these days. The trick is NEVER order the meat in platters! It's best to stick to individual portion. There was once, we both paid more than RM25 for our platter of char siu, siew yuk and roast duck and 2 plain wantan mee!!!!
This round we ordered 2 plates of char siu wantan mee since they've ran out of siew yuk!!! So fast finish even though we saw some when we walked in. We also have 4 pieces of sui kow (dumplings).
The sui kow came first and it's filled with minced meat and prawns and have strips of black fungus (moke yue) which lend a crunchy bite to it.
This was how the dry version of wantan mee with char siu looked like. I loved the QQ (bouncy and crunchy) noodles and the sauce is just the taste as I would have expected out of a wantan mee. However was a tad disappointed with the char siu. They've cut it soooo thick which render them a bit tough especially they've given me the lean meat. Sighhh... but I'm not complaining, especially when the wantan (meat dumpling) is soooo plump with meat!!! Not only that, the bowl had SIX wantans inside!!!!! It's sooo hard to find plump wantan let alone they gave 6 each instead of the usual which can range from 2 to 4 pieces.
We walked out satisfied having to pay only RM13.50 for 2 plates of wantan mee (small), 4 pieces of sui kow and a glass of Chinese tea. Heh... so don't say I didn't impart the tip of ordering single portion ok ;-)
