Restoran Chin Chin 晶晶云吞面 is a popular wanton mee shop near the prominent MPJBT building in Skudai, serving customers since 1988.

Restoran Chin Chin first caught my eye when I was at MPJBT building.

I noticed that it has a constant stream of customers at the shop. I tried it's wanton noodles once and have since become one of its regular customers.

Chin Chin's handmade wanton noodle is the more slender kind. It feels softer than the noodles at other top wanton mee shops. It is almost like an eggy kind of mee sua (Hokkien for rice thread). Yet it still has that al dente bite and crunchiness characteristic of good wanton noodles.

The noodles are complemented by a sauce that has lard and sesame fragrance and that is slightly spicy.

I especially like Chin Chin's popular wanton noodles with chicken claws and black mushrooms.

The chicken claws are well prepared. They are deep fried and then braised in soy based sauce. They are braised till even the bones are soft. I liked it so much that I ate the jelly soft skin and bones completely.



The noodles are bathed in the braising sauce made with chicken claws, black mushrooms and soy sauce. It is tasty and complements the slender, soft, crunchy and eggy noodles very well.

The soup is clear and tasty. The generous amount of chye sim (green vegetables) in the soup gives it a refreshing green leafy flavour.

The wantons have generous minced pork fillings. The fragrance of fresh pork and sesame is released with every bite of the wanton.

Whenever I am in the MPJBT area I will have an encore of Chin Chin's wanton mee.

->> One of JB's favourite wanton noodles with a signature gentle spring to the bite. The soft crunch of the eggy slender noodles can be addictive. If you are a wanton mee fan, this is a Must Try.

  2. Masai wanton mee? Which one??

    I stay near Masai and yet every time I need to eat something edible I have to go all the way to Johor Jaya --- as almost everything Masai and eastward has no taste

    But I found a wanton mee stall operated by a guy from Kedah near the Pelangi area okay - just okay, and by JB standard his mee is not expensive

    I always order the '3X' size plate (with 3X the noodle, and he only charge me RM7

  3. Try the kolo mee and wantan mee in tmn pelangi next to kingspa and opposite Hong Leong Bank. It is in a small kopitiam called soon Lee kopitiam. My personal favorite.

  4. There is a nice Wanton Mee store at the coffeeshop beside the HK Restaurant Dinosaur along Jalan Perang at Taman Pelangi.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
