Pontian Wanton Noodles House specialized in handmade wanton noodles which comes in various style. This is a very specialized shop which is what I like, just wanton noodles but available in the below style:

1. Chili sauce
2. Black sauce
3. Chili plus black sauce (their signature)
4. Tomato sauce
5. Chili plus tomato sauce

These are the options that comes in dry style with some vege, char siew and fried wanton with the noodles plus a bowl of soup with wanton. It cost RM4 for small, RM5 for medium and RM 6 for big size, pretty ok for an aircond shop.

Other styles available for the wanton mee includes laksa (curry), dry with dumplings and dry with chicken feet. There are also snacks option for plate of dry wanton or soup dumplings, fried dumplings, etc.

The variety of desserts available here are not bad as well and it looks very teow chew as they have things like tao suan and also yam paste with ginko. The funny thing they called tang yuen here as “Ah Boiling”, I wonder how that term came up.

I would say that taste is alright but what is nice about this place is the quality of the noodles and wanton skin itself that is nice here. The shop claimed that the noodles are handmade, no preservatives and won’t stick when take away. I remember being taught by a master wanton noodles maker that to test the quality of the noodles is to order take away and if the noodles doesn’t stick, they are good quality.

I ordered the noodles with black and chili sauce. It’s a bit spicy for me but after a while its ok. We got an additional plate of dry wanton and it was really nice and crispy but a little oily though. Overall I enjoyed the noodles mainly of its quality and reasonable pricing, will be back to try the other types of style as well as the desserts soon!

Kota Kinabalu: Fish Paste Noodles @ Restoran Kuo Man
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Places to Eat, Sabah, Sabah | icon4 08 19th, 2010| icon3Comments Off on Kota Kinabalu: Fish Paste Noodles @ Restoran Kuo Man

I was brought to this place by a local friend for breakfast, he told us that we need to be early here. We got there around 7.30am and proceed upstairs to sit and order, by 8am, this place is packed and I was really glad that we came early.

Kuo Man is a popular place for the locals, their specialty I found out later is actually beef which they select the good part of beef and have a special of cooking it tender. You can take it with noodles or porridge, etc.

Anyhow I went for the fish paste mix which have fish paste, mix of beef and inner parts  in the soup as well with a nice piece of tofu stuffed with pork with noodles. The fish paste is big in size, so every bite is nice and filling. The noodles are home made as well, so its pretty springy and good too.

This would definitely be a not miss if you wanna try out local food (although the founder was from Hong Kong and localized) but do get up early and get there early too ;).

I think I am a Hee Kiaw Mee Addict!
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Misc. | icon4 04 12th, 2010| icon3Comments Off on I think I am a Hee Kiaw Mee Addict!

This 1 night trip to Melaka, I had like 3 bowls of hee kiaw mee! I am starting to think that I am becoming a Hee Kiaw Mee addict. Miharu and family got the puzzled look on their face, why this fatty like hee kiaw mee so much, to them, its just very ordinary food, hehe…

Firstly, for those not familar, hee kiaw mee is actually noodles, can be ordered soup or dry with fish cake, fish balls and char siew. Most of the time, there’s also additional toppings like meatballs, stuffed tofu, etc. you can add on. The noodles varies from stalls, it can be the normal yellow noodles, meehoon, koay teow and something wantan mee type. The fish cake is different, not the usual fried type but just steamed fish cake that comes in white and orange colour. Fish ball and char siew are standard. Oh… there’s also taugeh being served together.

I preferred the soup based one but only at this one stall that operates at night at Jalan Tun Sri Lanang. The soup is slightly salted but very tasted and I like the fact there are so many types of topping you can add, hehe… greedy me as usual 😛

The dry one is quite nice too, my favourite is with koay teow and yellow noodles and oohhh… today I discovered that you have to ask for chili to be added to the dry one if you want so, it feels like something is missing with the chili sauce in the dry noodles :).

Well, this time I had my first bowl during dinner at Newton food court but sorry to say this but it was really not up to my expectation. I would actually rate it as just normal ching tong soup noodles. So, Miharu then convinced everyone that I should go for another bowl and we end up da bao-ing at Jalan Tun Sri Lanang… hehe… well, no regrets and I love it… see the photo, how I walloped clean clean

Then today, not sure what to eat, I end up eating hee kiaw mee again for lunch at Bukit Beruang… haha… so in conclusion, I think internally, I am slowly becoming a hee kiaw mee addict ;).

Eat first, think later… hmm.. maybe the next addiction will be char siew fan… thinking about it.. time to sleep, sweet dreams 😀
