Yap Kee Wanton Mee - The Absolutely Marvelous Egg Noodles (葉記全蛋雲吞面) @ BGain 442 Eating House [Opposite Clementi Central Hawker Centre]

You know that selfish feeling of wanting to keep a place secret so that not many people would be aware of its existence; thereby reducing the risk of having to queue for a frustratingly long period of time the next time you visit? 

I was stuck with that dilemma a week ago when i finally found the opportunity to try the wanton noodles in Clementi that colleagues have been gushing about every single time we touched on the topic of wanton mee! 

Before i moved on, do note that this is NOT the dark-style Boon Kee wanton noodles in Clementi Central hawker centre that i mentioned a few years ago. Yap Kee used to operate from the food centre in Holland Drive but was forced to move to this current location when the centre closed for a major renovation

Without further ado, let me present to you Yap Kee Wanton Noodles!

Okay, i can sense the questions running in that brain of yours: What's so amazing about this wanton mee? It looked pretty normal to me unlike the Red Ring you blogged before. Are you sure this is good? And etc etc etc. 

I agree! Appearance wise, it didn't look much and i can honestly tell you that the wantons (dumplings) were not exceptional and the soup was not robust enough. Other than the aforementioned, everything else was great! 

The pieces of char siew, though not as epic as the legendary Kay Lee, were still one of the better ones with sufficient flavour and a nice bite. The big surprise actually came from the thin strands of egg noodle! 

They were, to put it in very simple terms, perfectly cooked with the right level of springiness that would put many other noodle stalls to shame and tasted so distinctly delicious (the egg definitely played a part); i came back within a week and ordered the S$4 serving! 

Need i say more?

  1. Hi Cavin,

    Had tried the wanton noodles 2 weeks ago....noodles are good (8.5/10)...but sadly the wantons are still not up to standard. (4/10)

    1. surprisingly, i am seldom into wanton when i have wanton noodles; it's always the noodles that appealed more to me. I would also choose dumplings over wanton anytime. :)
