淡杯阿B全蛋云吞面 is a well loved little wanton noodle stall in Tampoi, tucked in a quiet rustic corner coffee shop off the busy Jalan Skudai (near the Mercedes Benz workshop).

Ah B Wanton noodles is a little stall inside Restoran Lee Soon (which is really a small coffee shop). I like it that we can just pull our cars right up the the door step :-D

The youthful boss, Ah B actually has nearly 20 years of experience under his belt as he has been selling wanton noodles since he was a teen.

The wanton noodle set is lovingly put together. The golden egg noodles were set in a charming traditional ceramic rooster bowl 公鸡碗, overlaid with white and red char siew slices and sprinkled with a green shower of freshly chopped scallions.

There are various sauce options like traditional 原味 (also known as "white 白") and "black 黑". White  is mainly cooking oil and lard, while black  is cooking oil, lard and dark soy sauce 黑酱油.

We had both. Both sauces were quite mild and we have the option to spice it up with a bit of chili sauce, which we did.

The egg noodles were slender and have a distinctive soft spring and crunch. They are instantly likable and reminds me of the egg noodles at Chin Chin over in Skudai.

The skinny lean char siew is typical of JB style which pales in comparison with KL's caramelised slightly charred meaty fatty chunks.

The wanton noodle is served in a small ceramic bowl of clear broth made by boiling chicken and anchovies. The clear broth is delicious.

Simple old fashioned wanton. A tiny knob of minced pork seasoned with sesame oil and white pepper wrapped in a thin soft slippery smooth wanton skin.

The noodles were laced with lard and mined with lard crackles. Those little taste grenades that burst porcine flavour and aroma in your mouth.

A large pot of lard and golden brown crackles was kept simmering over slow fire.

Freshly made pickled green pepper - they were juicy crunchy sweet with a mild spiciness. Perhaps a minor detail but traditional wanton noodle would be incomplete without this.

->> A simple lovingly made wanton mee with nice gently al dente egg noodles, mild sauces and all the details like wantons, soup, chili and lard crackles in place.

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)
