Today, I joined my foodie buddies Leslie and Irene at their favourite Stirling Road Blk 164 wanton noodles.
This little wanton mee stall is located at the corner of the corner coffee shop at Blk 164, Stirling Road, hence it is known simply as 164 Wanton Mee 云吞面.
Each of us had one of this SGD4 set with noodles, char siew, deep fried wantons, braised mushrooms, and choy sum greens.
Sharon, the lady boss said that this set is Stirling 164's best seller. Sharon and husband Joseph used to sell chicken rice and took over this wanton mee stall nearly 3 years ago. 164's style of wanton mee is inspired by Sharon and Joseph's travels in Malaysia.
As Irene tossed and picked up the noodles with her chopsticks, she said "I can crave for this".
The whole egg noodles were done a little soft with a subtle bite left. The noodles were slightly clumpy, held together by the thick, full bodied sweet savoury spicy sauce heavily laced with lard.
This reminded me of the lard laced Kuala Lumpur style of wanton mee that kills you slowly.
This is the type of wanton mee that I am glad to die a little for.
Each plate of Stirling 164 wanton mee is splashed with their signature brown sauce and house made chili sauce.
Everything on the plate were all good - the house made char siew was tender sweet savoury, the braised spongy black Chinese mushrooms, the nicely blanched choy sum and the deep fried wantons.
The house made char siew is freshly made in small batches at the stall.
I love especially the crispy fried wantons. The fried eggy skin was great; never mind the tiny knob of tender minced pork inside the folds.
Irene ordered an additional plate of fried wantons. I love the crispy wantons but didn't pay much attention to the Thai style spicy sauce nor the mayonnaise.
The small bowl of wantons and soup were nice too.
I always have a braised chicken feet side whenever it is available. Nice crinkly soft skin with savoury and very mild 5-spice flavours.
->> Wanton mee lovers come give this a try. You too may have a craving for this afterwards ;-D

Another place where you can get KL style wanton mee in Singapore is at Malaysia Boleh food court in Jurong Point. I haven't been there for a while though, so I am not sure if it is still as good.
