Updates: Argyll Road Wan Tan Mee shifted. Does anyone know their new location? I’m missing this wan tan mee.
Food blogs are really torturing! It tortures you even when you are not feeling hungry and no doubt it torture you even more when you feel hungry. Those food pictures never fail to make me drooling. Even just by writing a post about it, when I look at those pictures, I’ll be craving for the food! Imagine that I write this post during lunch time where I yet to take my lunch. Just feel like having a plate of wan tan mee now!
If not for my colleague who introduced this place to me, for sure I’m not able to locate this place. It’s a small and old coffee shop named Tai Wah Cafe, but old is gold right?
The interior of the coffee shop. There’s one old grandmother clock hanging by the wall. From my observation, most of the customers consist of middle and elder range group who seems like regular customers to me. The coffee shop is kinda small and always crowded with customers.
Patience is what you needed when you eat in this coffee shop. Sometimes you’ll have to stand around and wait for a table (just like those dim sum restaurants).
A plate of small wan tan mee which consist of a few slices of char siew, slices of meat, some vege and 2 wantan. The noodle is slightly thinner if compare to Thong Kee self made wan tan mee. The texture of the noodle is QQ and quite similar to the one at Sri Nibong Cafe, but less dark soya sauce is used.
Just a simple plate of wan tan mee but it’s full of fragrant. The wan tan also tasted good with generous amount of well marinated meat.
Later I found out that this Tai Wah Wan Tan mee is pretty famous and is an ‘trusted brand‘ in Penang. Wow! I didn’t know about that. It’s like discovering a hidden gems.
The thin noodles are arranged nicely in the stall.
