Sungai Besi Wantan Mee

... a.k.a the only wantan mee that I will eat. I come from the land of kolo mee and my taste bud have refused to give in to another similar egg noodle but this is the only place I give an exception. The place only opens after 6.30 pm and is open until as late as 3 a.m. The next morning the same place transform to a workshop.

The place basically serve only one type of noodle but you have a number choices of sides to come along with it. Ranging from almost all things pork - char siew, vinegar pork leg, hakka stew pork and a few other pork dishes. The two chicken dish would be the braised chicken feet and curry chicken.

I think one of the reason why I would eat the wantan mee here is the fact that the noodles is not overly drowned in dark soy sauce (still look yellow!), instead it was the pork lard used that made most of the taste in whole.  The texture also is almost identical to kolo mee, more "kiu" and less the egg flavor. 

The curry wildboar here is remarkable. It's rich but not overly thick and is spicy enough to give the oomph! I polished this plate clean including the gravy. hehe. I only wish the meat could have been less lean. If there is one thing you must not missed here then it is the curry wildboar!

The sui kow or wantan soup is also worth to try if you wanted a side dish. They are pretty generous with the filling of the dumplings and I find the clear soup to be flavorful. 

Everything pictured cost us RM 23.50. Pretty reasonable by KL standard and food quality is guaranteed. If you've never heard of this place, here's the coordinate for you :

GPS: 3.122556, 101.708947 

Landmark would be the BHP Petrol Station just right after South Gate.

I love this place too! :)

It's the first time I actually *liked* wantan mee but I heard it used to be better.

First time I went was in 2008, I didn't know how it was like pre-2008 so I don't know if the quality has dropped.

Still tastes good to me. :D
