Gosh, I haven’t blogged here in so long, I’d almost forgotten my login and password LOL! Anyway, I’m logging back in with a rant (of course!). I don’t eat wantan mee a lot, but there was a stall I’d frequented many many many years ago when late nights at work were common. At 10pm, there aren’t many places to go to eat but the Wantan Mee at Sungai Besi was and so I’d go there. It was a little pricey back then but it was fairly good.
A few days ago, I drove past in the evening and saw that it was open. So me and dinner buddy decided to see how it is, not having been there for about 10 years if at that!
The stall opens at sunset when the car repair shop/car accessory shop it is attached to closes up for the day. So it opens for business at about 5.30pm till late at night. They sell wantan mee (only the thin noodles) with a variety of toppings – char siew, wantan, siew yoke, roast duck etc etc. Choice is very varied and prices start at RM5 for a small portion.
Sadly, I was very disappointed.
Here is a small portion at RM5. I had (count it) 5 slices of char siew and a few boiled leaves.
The noodles were strangely sweet and not very tasty at all. I used to eat here back in the day but now I remember why I stopped – the quality had dropped drastically, and prices had shot up. Dinner buddy had the “medium” portion at RM6 which to my eye had the same or similar amount of noodles. But taste wise it was the same – strangely sweet.
It doesn’t seem to affect their business though. People were still trooping in for dinner, there were many diners and no one looked unhappy eating their noodles except me. Ah well, guess this is my last visit there. It thrives on its reputation for having one of the “best wantan mee in KL” but I think I’ll pass.
If you want to see what the fuss about, here’s the location map. Just don’t blame me if you hate it.
