Wanton Mee @ Restoran Uncle Koh in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah, Skudai


Uncle Koh is an established wanton mee shop in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah (TUTA) with a strong following in Skudai. Customers stream in constantly at all times for a meal (lunch) or for snack of homemade wanton mee.

The tender noodles are crunchy and springy. The sauce has a distinctive lard and sesame oil aroma. Basically, old style, which is my favourite style

These are three pictures on the wall at the shop showing the owner Uncle Koh at work at his old stall at Taman Johor Jaya. Obviously, he was having fun and passionate about his trade. I love meeting and seeing passionate people at work. It inspires and energises me ☻


Today (Mar 2014), Uncle Koh is still having fun.

Uncle Koh's staff cooking the wanton noodles.

Johor is crowded with good wanton noodle shops and stalls, so the customers' expectations are tuned rather high. In this crowded field, Uncle Koh's homemade wanton noodles stand with the best.

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