Finally we went to the famous Sungai Besi Wan Tan Mee (全蛋面) last weekend. This was the place we attempted to go a couple months ago, but my house mate got lost on the way, ended up driving around KL for almost 2 hours before finally admitted defeat and ate at some road stalls at Bangsar instead. That incident gave her an excuse to upgrade to an expensive GPS phone, but anyhow, we got there this time (we didn’t use the GPS)

this place is usually packed with hungry customers

For the three of us, we ordered a wan tan with mushroom noodle, a mushroom chicken feet noodle, a curry chicken noodle, deep fried sui kow, a plate of deep fried prawn, and some oily vegetable. See, the good thing about this place is the variety of different “wan tan mee” you can order. The other toppings include the original wan tan and char siew (BBQ pork), curry wild boar, ginger duck, pork knuckle, sui kow, and Hakka stew pork.

The noodle served here was actually pretty good, though I feel that it is still 2nd to the stall in Pudu, but still pretty good nonetheless. The toppings and other items were pretty decent as well, and the RM 6 deep fried prawn really offered value for money. Other than the traditional chili, this place also offered two types of delicious sambal to go with the side dishes (sui kow and prawn).

The meal was pretty satisfying. However, they can be a little pricey. Including drinks, we had to part with RM 36 for the three of us. That was for the 3 plates of noodle and three side dishes ordered. Then again, you do get the variety and a different taste from the ordinary wan tan plus char siew.

    This is the stall I go to when I’m looking for a late night supper as it opens till the wee hours of the morning. The wild boar curry is exceptional.

    Did she mark this down at her GPS. Then I can use the coordinates to look for this place. I did hear quite a few people say this place is not the original rite? Seems it has shifted to Jalan Kuchai Lama.

    simmie,

    Yes 😀

    boo,
    No coordinate, but you should be able to find it without too much trouble. Original or not doesn’t matter to me, so long as the food is good. 😉

    I been to this shop once, but I have bad experience. We have some argument on the bill amount. They missed calculate the total amount but they refuse to admit it. Sad…

    But the food is so so ok only.

    I believe babekl once mentioned that this is not the original owner. I’ve been here many times (this one included) and do find the place to be not as good as when i first tried it many years ago. the choices are nice but i’d only go there if i craved wantan mee at night. i’m sure there are better places in KL

    Not worth the effort, tasteless and don’t even serve ginger duck. Perhaps previously good, not many customers. Expensive

    This stall OK-OK for me, if you are looking for the best NOODLES in Wan Tan Mee, should go to Nippy Noodle @Kuchai Lama.

    A test for good wantan noodles is when you ‘ta-pau’. The noodles must still remain moist and not clumping together. This stall definitely pass the ‘tapau’ test. I had chicken feet and mushrooms and char siew & wantan. However, the soup is not nice. So better to order konlo …
