Soon Heng Noodle: Wantan Mee at Pepys Road
This wantan mee stall is next to the Fei Zhai pork rib prawn noodles at the junction of Pepys Road and Pasir Panjang Road. The texture of the noodles was perfect - springy and firm. The sauce is all right, a mixture of dark sauce with generous sambal chili, but no epiphanies to be had here. Pity the char siew is the paper-thin and dry variety. This part so often drags down the experience of wantan mee.
Fortunately the little wantans are not too bad, and the soup is fairly decent. In all, perhaps not the best wantan mee I've had, but it's an option I'll keep in mind if I'm in the area.
They also serve noodles or hor fun with either chicken feet (yum, I should try this next time), shredded chicken noodles, shrimp dumplings or mushrooms. Oyster sauce vegetables are also available.
