Famous No Name Wanton Mee in Kampung Pandan, Johor Bahru


Besides the famous Poh Kee wanton mee, there is another popular wanton mee stall in the same row of stalls in Kampung Pandan.


This one has no name and is run by a mother and daughter team.


Though this stall have no name, it is very popular among locals - just look at the crowd here. There was no free table except for that table baking under the scorching sun; even then, all the chairs were gone.


For a change, I ordered a mee pok instead of the usual wanton noodles. The noodles were softer than their brand name neighbour's but still al dente. The savoury sauce was slightly tangy and wet, reminding me of the Pontian style of wanton noodles.

Both stalls (Poh Kee and no name stall) and their different styles of wanton noodles have their respective fans and many eat at both stalls.


Seen from this angle, the wanton looked like a juicy cicada.

The wantons at no name stall were soft, smooth and fragrant.


I also ordered fried tofu and fried tofu skin.

Not very photogenic but yummy!

The fried tofu was good and the fried tofu skin was even better. Despite soaking in the soup, the fried tofu skin was still crunchy.

Their neighbour, Poh Kee also offers fried tofu skin. I guess fried tofu skin could be the distinctive signature of Kampung Pandan wanton noodle stalls.


The small mountain of chilies gives us an idea of the volume of customer traffic at this no name stall.

The gentleman who shared the table with us was clearly a fan of this no name stall. He convinced us that we have to came back for this stall's popular curry mee.



Restaurant name: No name wanton mee

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)
