Self Made Wan Tan Mee @ Thong Kee ; Penang Hawker Food


I got attracted by a board which stated ‘Whole Egg Wan Tan Mee‘ while we are on our way to eat the Campbell Street Market Curry Mee.

Nowadays most of the noodle for wan tan mee are bought from the noodle manufacturer. It’s seldom that we can get the self made noodle for wan tan mee. Therefore, weeks later I am here again to try out the self made wan tan mee.

Thong Kee wan tan mee is served in an old style coffee shop.

My bowl of whole egg wan tan mee which cost RM 2.50. The portion is quite big. There are a few slices of char siew, fried wan tan and normal cooked wan tan. The wan tan is quite big and tasty.

The wantan mee is fragrant and the lard added more fragrant to it.

The noodle itself has crunchy feeling if compare to the normal wan tan mee like the one at Chulia Street and Kafe Kheng Pin.

According to the stall owner, he owns the ingredients to make the noodle. He mix the ingredients, uses his own mixer and noodle making machine to process his self made, whole egg noodle.

It’s very easy to locate this coffee shop. Look for this green Boon Wah building. Thong Kee Wan Tan Mee is just located a few shops away from this building.

    CK,
    I kinda like the wantan. The size is slighty bigger than those we normally get outside.

    Easy,
    Sorry for keep you waiting. Didn’t know you are waiting for this. Hope you like the wan tan mee.
