Yi Shi Jia Wanton Mee (益食家云吞面) - The Good, Old Traditional Taste @ Kovan Hawker Centre [Singapore]

I went round the hawker centre twice as i didn't know what to have for lunch; should it be the minced meat fishball noodles with long queue, the roast delight or something new? Turned out i have been craving for noodles in recent weeks and i eventually cast my vote at a stall that's rather hidden at the back of the food centre.

Yi Shi Jia Wanton Mee (益食家云吞面); it's interesting for a wanton mee stall to differentiate its menu using spicy, ketchup and soy sauce! Usually, it's more like the customers asking for either spicy or non-spicy or the stall owner checking if you want spicy or not. 

It's funny that when it comes to wanton mee, it's never the wanton (dumplings) that matters. Like many other similar stalls, the three small wantons at Yi Shi Jia were nothing to scream about and the soup didn't make a significant impact for my taste buds. 

Char siew wise; again, not the fatty kind with charred bits that i totally love. p.s. i did notice that the operator was generous with the char siew as there were so many slices!

Swimming in an appetising sauce that's mixed in with ketchup (tomato sauce), the noodle was definitely the biggest draw with an alluring taste of nostalgia! The strands of noodle were soaked with the sauce and had an eggy and subtle akaline flavour; each scoop into my mouth brought me back to my childhood when a plate of wanton mee cost only S$1.50.

Satisfaction, max!
