Eng Kee Noodle House: Best Wanton Noodle Singapore

Eng Kee Best Wanton Mee

When it comes to breakfast, I prefer Wanton Noodles over fish-ball noodles or bak chor mee since I don’t really like fish-balls or minced meat. But who can resist the tender char siew and crunchy wanton dumpling? Especially Eng Kee Noodle House’s Wanton Mee.

Even though I have been eating Eng Kee’s Wanton Mee for years, it took me until now to blog about it because: a) I always takeaway instead of eating there (no chance to take photos), and b) I hope that they will not become even more popular. Oh whatever, I’m going to be nice and tell everyone that Eng Kee Noodle House is my all-time favorite place for wanton noodle. Forget about Feifei wanton mee (over-hyped) or Pontian wanton mee (small portions), Eng Kee’s Noodle House serves the best wonton noodle in Singapore.

I’m not sure about you, but wanton mee is definitely among my list of top 10 breakfast hawker food, it is substantial yet not too filling. There are three criteria for a good wanton mee: the char siew, wanton and noodle. Eng Kee’s wonton noodle however, is not the perfect bowl of wanton mee, for the char siew is only decent, and the wanton dumplings average.

I know I tend to exaggerate when I describe food, but please trust me when I say that the noodles here are fantastic. They waved and beckoned for me to get closer, and once I put them into my mouth; they bounced up and down on the tip of my tongue – it was delicious!

How to test if the noodles are really good: wait two hours before consuming, if they remain springy and Q after that — you get your answer. I always have the wanton mee a few hours after I buy them. It tastes just as good, if not even better than having it on the spot. And one last thing, remember to go for the $3 portion (at least).

Have you tried the legendary Nam Seng wanton mee that used to reign supreme at the old National Library hawker centre? It is now in a corner shophouse at Far East Square where Don Pie Club used to be (Don Pie Club is now at the opposite shophouse). The 80+-year-old lady who has been running the stall for more than 50 years is still running the show.

looks scrummy. I used to adore wanton mee for brekkie (still do) but i find wantons too small for my ravenous appetite..shui jiao is more appropriate. nonetheless, i cannot resist meepok for breakfast. i have a meepok-face

kwong Kee at 34 Cassie cres is actually very good too. But close on mon n if u really want to enjoy the noodles, ask for $3 for additional char siew. As @$2 u get only 5 pieces. ( imagine still hv $2 noodles…)

I have tried Fei Fei, Ang Mo and Eng Kee wanton mee – all three are closely located.

I bet is Eng Kee. The vegetables are fresh and not over cooked. The green chill is fresh – crunchy. The winning point – the wanton are only cooked when customers orders. In the case of Fei Fei, the wanton and shrimp dumplings are all cook ahead and very often the skin will break when it comes to serving (especially those served in the noodles – tends to break when you toss the noodles.

Lastly, the soup is good – sense that the level of msg is quite low.

Anybody tried the wanton noodles at Geylang Lor 21A? Its the best tat i have tried so far. Heard tat they BBQ their own char siew. The soup is also the best so far as i think they do not put a lot msg or not at all as i do not feel thirsty after drinking their soup.

Well someone just has to tried it n write a review about it

Plse go to Kovan Market and try the wonderful wan ton noodles(has sweetness, saltish and tomato sauce flavours), 3 generations of vendros selling it. Name of shop is Yi Shi Jia Shu Shi or Cooked Food.
