24 hours Wan Tan Mee ; Penang Hawker Food


24 hours 7-Eleven, 24 hours KFC, 24 hours Mc D are familiar to us but 24 hours Wan Tan Mee? When I first heard about this, it was quite hard for me to believe it.

This stall operates by a 73 years old man and his wife. His wife operates the stall from 7am – 1pm, and the old man takes over then. The only off day is Tuesday night.

24 hours wan tan mee stall He has been operating the stall for ~ 50 years. According to him, he plan to operate the stall for another 2 years.

The stall owner in action making some wan tan for us.


24 hours wan tan mee stall owner A plate of wan tan mee with very simple presentation, just a few slices of char siew on top. The noodle is QQ and fragrant with lard taste.
The noodle use is slightly different from Thong Kee noodle. This one is thinner and QQ while Thong Kee one has crunchy feeling.

The vegetable was serve separately with some dark soy sauce. I felt that the dark soy sauce is a bit too much, therefore the vegetable is slightly salty
vegetableA bowl of wantan soup where the wantan cost only 10cent /pc of wantan. The soup base and the meat for the wantan are quite bland. But where to get 10 cent / pc of wan tan nowdays.
Wan Tan SoupThe fried wantan is very crispy. The uncle will deep fry the fried wantan again before it’s served to us.

    This stall is cheap economical. You can ask for more vege with wantan mee without extra charge.

    But if you like better a tasting wantan mee from the same food court, you could try the stall on the next row! The stall is run by a lady in her 40′s or 50′s, with the help from her daughter.

    Wow this is ‘teamwork’ / ‘division of work’! Looks like they learned it from the Bayan Lepas factories or pioneered it?
