I’m a bit of a fan of wantan mee, after all, it is one of the first “good” hawker dishes I tried when first moved to Klang Valley from Penang. Quality of wantan mee here in Central Peninsular Malaysia is like char kuih teow in Penang, you don’t often get disappointed.

That being said, there are those that stands out from the crowd, and if you find yourself in Klang, this particular nameless wantan mee stall is the one that definitely deserves some attention.

Update 6/4/2019: They’ve  moved to Lorong Raja Bot nearby

The wantan mee stall is located along Jalan Gelugor in the heart of Klang town, just a stone’s throw away from the relatively famous sei ngan chai bak kut teh “restaurant”. The whole place consists of poorly erected zinc roof and furnished with plastic chairs and tables with a dining temperature that’s at least 5 Celsius hotter than being directly under the sun.

Yet, it is always packed.

But if you have an appetite for good wantan mee, order a plate, and with some patience, you’ll get to see it in front of you in about 30-45 minutes, just as when you’ve lost a whole KG of sweat by sitting there.

I had mine with extra wantan that is served in a soup, and well, it was worth it!

The noodle is fine yet springy, soaking up those perfectly balanced sauce that carries a hint of lard. The wantan is something else, they’re rather small but packs a punch in flavor, most likely due to the marinade/seasoning in the meat and that they’re made fresh almost just before serving.

The charsiu isn’t the strong point here, but forgivable considering how good everything else tasted.

I think I’ll be willing to revisit despite the crowd and the heat.

    KY, I would not be able to stay in hot sun too long and would head indoor for a cold soba noodle instead. Right now night market is getthing pretty popular in Hawaii. Due day time heat all people even tourists enjoyed shopping and eating at the night market like in Taiwan. Wantan mee got have indoor where it cooler. Not too hungry in hot weather.

    The noodles look like any other but the wantan looks good

    They should replace those low height zinc roofs with simpler removeable shade sails with high ceiling or something similar. Prevents build up of hot air and heat radiation from the zinc roofs

    I still prefer Heng Kee Wan Tan Mee which you posted in December 2014. That’s always my favorite place.
