Hung Kee Wanton Mee @ Taman Shamelin Perkasa, Cheras

Who doesn't know this famous Hung Kee Wanton Mee located at Jalan Loke Yew?!

Established since mid of 1960s by the Phoon family from a small shoplot and now has expanded to air conditioned shoplots and a branch in Taman Shamelin Perkasa. 


I frequent to their branch; say like once a week after grocery shopping nearby and ordered myself a plate of wanton mee. Hmmm, to be specific, that will be their noodles with char siu (BBQ pork) only (RM 4.50 per plate). You can always have their noodles with char siu and wanton (come in 6 pcs) but I never like their wanton(s) as the skin may be too thick to me. 


Their wanton noodles are handmade; every strand is springy in texture and tossed in well seasoned sauce. Do opt for semi-fat char siu (半肥瘦叉烧) that comes fattier (this time the char siu was not fatty enough); I enjoyed chewing the fatty charred part that gave a sweet aftertaste. 

Verdict: Their char siu may not be the best one you have had; but the yellow thin strands of springy noodles are something you will love. Another reason I love coming here is, I don't have to fight through the traffic and travel down to Jalan Loke Yew for a plate of wanton mee as we have one Hung Kee (their branch) in Cheras :)

Sorry to tell that I don't know about Hung Kee >.< *shame on me* But the wonton mee looks really yummy!

yes it is :)

somewhere in singapore,
if the fatty parts are greater or well balance (50-50) with the skinny part, it will be more tempting.

Oh the noodles does look good! I like mine soft & with a bit of bite versus the very springy ones.
