Sin Kee Pontian Wanton Mee @ 8383 Coffee Shop in Pontian

Once in a while, I would chance upon a stall so good that I just can’t wait to blog about it. Sin Kee Pontian wanton mee is such a stall. Even though I am rather tired after a full day of food spotting in Pontian, I just had to share this good food find as quickly as I can.

Sin Kee is a stall inside the popular 8383 kopitiam along Jalan Johor. 8383 coffee shop is on your right as you approach Pontian Kechil from Johor Bahru along Jalan Johor.

In most aspects, Sin Kee is like the other famous Pontian wanton mee stalls. They use roughly the same blend of oyster/soy/sesame/chili/tomato sauce to give that trademark tangy, spicy and sweet Pontian wanton mee taste.

What sets Sin Kee apart is its exceptional noodles. They are simply the crunchiest noodles that I can find anywhere today. Sin Kee is the last and only stall in Pontian that still makes its wanton noodles by hand, and it tells. When I bit into the fresh, eggy wanton noodle, I can literally feel the thick strand pop, snap apart and recoiling back gently – it was that springy. 

Sin Kee's handmade wanton noodles stall was featured in Axian's popular television series on the best food stalls in Malaysia. Sin Kee is now run by a nephew of the owner who was featured in the show.

Sin Kee’s wanton soup also stood out. It is the only wanton soup in Pontian that has that distinct anchovy aroma and flavour, which I like.

Sin Kee’s wantons are bigger than those that the other stalls offer, though taste and texture wise they are pretty similar i.e. the pork filling tastes of sesame and are soft.

The char siew and fish balls were good too, though not much different from the other wanton noodle stalls in Pontian.

I love this caricature of the Sin Kee stall owner. It captures his energy, cheerfulness, and his passion for wanton noodles very well. All these fine qualities are ultimately reflected in each plate of awesome wanton noodles he serves.


->> Come to Sin Kee for it’s outstanding egg noodles – in wanton mee, everything else are frills, in my opinion :-D

  1. yeap agree, 8383 has the best Wanton mee, Pontian version. As for the wanton, I still feel the Heng Heng ones are better. If I am not wrong, they added some salted fish to the filling which give it a superior aroma. But overall 8383 wins the overall best price. Try the coffee at the same shop too.

    1. The original stall has moved to 829 Jalan Bakek as pointed out above. They're along the same stretch of road as Yi Sheng Claypot Rice. Closed on Thurs.

      There is a young man running the WTM stall at the old location at 8383 Kopitiam. Looks like it's a branch stall. Closed on Weds.

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)
