Wonton noodles, or what most refer to as “wanton mee” in Singapore, is a relatively simple dish that comprises noodles, meat-filled dumplings and char siew (BBQ pork). 

While it might seem uncomplicated, it’s undeniably a hot favourite among diners here when it comes to comforting noodle dishes in Singapore. It’s a dish that provides a comforting feeling of nostalgia to countless Singaporeans who’d grown up with it.

Wanton mee can be served in a few ways, either as a lighter version with the noodles served in broth, or a dry version where the noodles are accentuated with sauce (usually dark sauce) and chilli.

One thing’s for sure, the dish, though seemingly straightforward, requires all of its elements to be done to perfection for a holistic, faultless dish.

That’s why, if you try asking any Singaporean which stall is their favourite, each would have their own opinion on where to find the best wanton mee in Singapore. 

Always on the lookout for a comforting bowl of the beloved noodles ourselves, we decided to try 30 stalls scattered throughout the island and rate them, to make your decision easier.

Here’s our guide on wanton mee stalls in Singapore, according to different regions.


1. Parklane Zha Yun Tun Mee House

Sunshine Plaza, 01-53, 91 Bencoolen Street
Open: Monday to Sunday (10am to 9pm)

10 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-parklane zha yun tun mee
This quaint Sunshine Plaza shop is a familiar sight to those who frequent the mall.Photo: Shihan Chen/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Parklane Zha Yun Tun Mee House is one of the many rustic eateries hidden inside Sunshine Plaza. The unassuming store has been around for decades, a familiar sight well-known to print-shop regulars and students in the area.

Rating: 3/5

Our thoughts: The crispy fried wanton that came with the fried yun tun mee (S$5) was the highlight. Unfortunately, the char siew was dry and it was an altogether average meal. We will probably only go back specifically for the fried wanton and not the wanton mee itself.

2. Chef Kang’s Noodle House

Block C, Jackson Square, 11 Lorong 3 Toa Payoh
Open: Monday to Friday (8am to 4pm), Saturday and Sunday (8am to 3pm)

02 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-chef kang noodle house
Did you know you can get wanton mee from a Michelin-starred chef? Photo: Shihan Chen/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? This industrial area hidden gem has built up quite a cult following for itself. Opened by Michelin-starred chef Ang Song Kang, Chef Kang’s Noodle House is a stall you have to check out when hunting for the best wanton mee in SIngapore.

Rating: 4/5

Our thoughts: The noodle with char siew and wanton (S$7) not only came with copious amounts of fried pork lard and pieces of juicy and tender char siew, the accompanying wanton is also generously stuffed with chestnut and a generous meat and prawn filling. However, the texture of the noodles wasn’t as good as expected — producing a starchy and sticky mouthfeel.

3. Hougang Ming Ji Wanton Noodle (Whampoa)

Whampoa Food Centre, 01-28, 91 Whampoa Drive

11 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-hougang meng ji
This is one of the more frequently seen wanton mee brands. Photo: Shihan Chen/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Although it bears “Hougang” in its name, Hougang Ming Ji Wanton Noodle can be found all over the island these days. Its widespread availability is what made us want to check it out to find out its key to thriving in the competitive hawker scene.

Rating: 3.5/5

Crowd favourites: What we liked most about this stall is its springy and flavourful noodles. Each bowl of its signature noodle (S$5) came with a variety of sides besides wanton: Think chicken feet and pork ribs. While the sides were mostly average in quality, it makes for a filling and hearty meal.

4. Kowloon Wanton Noodle (Harbourfront)

Seah Im Food Centre, 01-50, 2 Seah Im Road
Open: Monday to Sunday (6am to 2pm)

12 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-kowloon wanton oodle
Something to check out when at Seah Im Food Centre. Photo: Denyse Chua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? While not typically one of the usual suspects when one thinks of the best wanton mee in Singapore, Kowloon Wanton Noodle is a good option for those in the Harbourfront vicinity. The stall specialises in both old-school wanton mee and soya sauce chicken noodles for those looking for a light lunch.

Price range: 3/5

Our thoughts: Overall, we thought the bowl of wanton mee (S$4) was pretty good, delivering a good rendition of what you’d expect from the dish. Though the noodles and char siew were average, we enjoyed the flavourful wanton and how the lighter soup paired well with the dumplings’ savoury profile.

5. Wong Kee Noodle (Depot Lane)

Yue Hua Coffee Shop, 118 Depot Lane
Open: Monday to Friday (6.30am to 2.30pm), Saturday (7am to 1.30pm)

Timbre+, 01-06, 73A Ayer Rajah Crescent
Open: Monday to Friday (7.30am to 6pm), Saturday (8am to 2pm)

13 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-wong kee noodle
One of the more unique wanton mee in Singapore, you can have it served with green spinach noodles. Photo: Denyse Chua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Wong Kee Noodle is a beloved stall by residents and foodies alike, and is frequently mentioned when we talk about the best wanton mee in Singapore. Regulars swear by its tasty, quality offerings that are consistently good. Another unique selling point: It has an intriguing variety of noodles besides the usual yellow ones, such as tomato and spinach noodles.

Rating: 3.5/5

Our thoughts: Between the char siew dumpling noodle (S$5.50) and char siew dumpling spinach noodle (S$6.30), we thought the latter stood out more, though it was on the drier side and needed a splash of soup to moisten it up. 

We opted for shui jiao (Chinese boiled dumplings) here instead of wanton — a decent offering that was spruced up with black fungus instead of watercress in its filling. Char siew lovers would also appreciate the stall’s version — its meat was delicious, enhanced by a rich sauce.

6. Xing Hua Wanton Mee

Naifu Coffee House, 01-193, 151 Bishan Street 11
Open: Wednesday to Sunday (6am to 1pm)

30 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-xing hua wanton noodles
Here’s a hidden gem frequented by Bishan’s residents. Photo: Joy Fang/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? This unassuming stall is located in a tiny corner coffee shop that converts to a zichar eatery at night. Be prepared to wait for about 15 minutes, as Xing Hua Wanton Mee gets really crowded in the mornings, thanks to a throng of regulars residing in the area.

Rating: 4/5

Our thoughts: It feels like an old-school dish cooked by your grandpa, where everything is just right and well-balanced. We loved everything from the light and slightly peppery sauce that coated the springy noodles, to the slivers of char siew that had a nice bite and were not too dry. Even the wantons, often overlooked, were nicely filled with tender meat.


1. Tanjong Rhu Wanton Noodles (Yishun)

654 Yishun Ave 4, #4
Open: Monday to Sunday (7am to 7pm)

07 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-tanjong rhu wanton noodles

Why visit? Tanjong Rhu Wanton Noodles is an inescapable name when hunting down the best wanton mee in Singapore. This prolific brand can be found all over the island, which means we’d definitely need to try it to see what the fuss is about.

Rating: 3.5/5 

Our thoughts: One of the things that jumped out for us is its chilli, which packed a fiery punch. This addition gave the signature wanton mee noodles (S$4) a nice spicy profile — especially delicious when combined with the springy egg noodles and crispy fried wantons. The soup served on the side was bland, but the wanton was tasty.

2. One Ton Mee (10 Marsiling Road)

10 Marsiling Industrial Estate Road 1
Open: Monday to Saturday (6am to 4.30pm) 

09 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-one ton mee
Within the Woodlands industrial area lies a popular wanton mee stall. Photo: Jacelyn Lee/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Woodlands is not usually known to be a food enclave, but don’t knock it just yet! One Ton Mee in the Woodlands industrial area serves up a pretty decent plate of wanton mee if you’re hankering for some comfortable noodle-y goodness.

Rating: 3/5

Our thoughts: The bowl of wanton noodles (S$4.50) we had were on the saucier side, where every bite of the springy noodles were coated in sauce. The wanton came in a good size — however, it had a peculiar sweetness that differed from your usual wantons and the char siew turned out to be a tad dry and tough.

3. Meng Ji Noodle House (Kampung Admiralty)

Kampung Admiralty Hawker Centre, 02-06, 676 Woodlands Drive 71

31 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-meng ji admiralty

Why visit? Meng Ji Noodle House might not be a well-known wanton mee option, but for those living in Admiralty, it serves a decent plate that’s generous in portion. It’s among the more eye-catching stalls at Kampung Admiralty Hawker Centre, thanks to its big signboard.

Rating: 3/5

Our thoughts: If you have a wonton noodle craving, this would be an acceptable option. Its wanton noodles (S$3.50) is standard fare, with the usual ingredients. The noodles were springy and the char siew was decent and less dry than most; however, its wantons were pretty run-of-the-mill and on the smaller side.

4. One Mouth Noodle

Yishun Park Hawker Centre, 01-12, 51 Yishun Avenue 11
Open: Tuesday to Sunday (9am to 8.30pm)

04 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-one mouth noodle
Nothing beats these egg noodles that are handmade every day. Photo: Evan Mua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? One Mouth Noodle is a bit of an outlier among the wanton mee stalls in Singapore — here, the owner starts every day by painstakingly making the egg noodles from scratch. There is little wonder then, that you’d find a steady line of customers patiently awaiting their turn to order at this Yishun stall during peak hours.

Rating: 4/5

Our thoughts: As far as noodles are concerned, One Mouth Noodle’s handmade egg noodles easily beat out most of its competitors in Singapore. Done up Hong Kong-style with a light sauce, the toothsome al dente bite of the sleek noodles is readily apparent.

The crowd-favourite char siew wanton noodle (S$5.50), while slightly pricier than most, comes with an array of well-caramelised and luscious meat slices, making each mouthful a textured, flavourful one. Another highlight: Its umami soup on the side.

5. Wah Seng Kee Traditional Wanton Noodle

Blk 313A Sembawang Drive
Open: Tuesday to Sunday (6am to 1.30pm)

03 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-wah seng kee
This long-lived family recipe lives on in the quiet Sembawang estate. Photo: Evan Mua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Purportedly based on a family recipe that dates back to 1946, this hidden gem in Sembawang dishes out nostalgic bowls of old-school wanton mee. Wah Seng Kee Traditional Wanton Noodle also gives diners the option for jazzed-up noods that come with chicken feet.

Rating: 3.5/5

Our thoughts: Wah Seng Kee’s signature noodle (S$5.50) was pretty indulgent — it’s loaded with char siew, chicken feet and fried wanton, along with a bowl of wanton soup. Except for the average char siew, the rest of the components were all enjoyable, especially the crispy fried wanton. 

Ultimately though, the best part of the ensemble was the noodles, which were springy and not alkaline while nicely bolstered with a touch of umami chilli. 

6. Hoe Soon Noodle

Chong Pang Food Centre, 01-158, 104 Yishun Ring Road
Open: Friday to Tuesday (5am to 9pm), Wednesday and Thursday (5am to 2pm)

32 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-hoe soon chong pang
This is one of Chong Pang Food Centre’s longest-serving hawker stalls. Photo: Evan Mua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? This wanton mee stall is a familiar sight to many who live in the area, having been in Chong Pang Food Centre for more than three decades. Many regulars say they’ve been eating noodles from Hoe Soon Noodle since young, which makes it an interesting option to check out, especially given the lack of wanton mee in the hawker centre.

Rating: 2/5

Our thoughts: The tangy sauce blend was intriguing but the stall’s wanton noodle (S$3.50) was decidedly average as a whole — its noodles were clumped up while the char siew was the classic “thin and dry” variety you usually find in old-school wanton mee.


1. Fei Fei Wanton Mee

45 Joo Chiat Place
Open: Monday to Sunday (6am to 3.30am)

23 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-fei fei joo chiat
This is a favourite supper spot for many easties. Photo: Lynn Chua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? If you’re staying in the east, Fei Fei Wanton Mee should be a name you should note down for future supper sessions, as the popular spot is open until 3.30am. 

Previously located at 72 Joo Chiat Place, the stall, which opened in the 1940s, moved a few stalls down the road in April. We’re not sure why, but the shift has resulted in mixed reviews, so we were curious to see whether its noodles still hold up to standards.

Rating: 3/5

Our thoughts: Unfortunately, the wanton noodle (S$6) didn’t impress, with dry char siew and noodles that tasted rather bland. However, we still appreciated the texture of its springy egg noodles and the generous wantons in the soup.

2. Ang Moh Wanton Noodles

182 Joo Chiat Road
Open: Monday to Sunday (7.30am to 9pm)

22 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-ang moh
A very old-school brand that started off as a push cart in the ‘60s. Photo: Lynn Chua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Dating back as far as 1962, Ang Moh Wanton Noodles started as a pushcart run by a man who looked like an “ang moh” (local slang for Caucasian) before it went on to become one of the most beloved establishments in the area. 

Today, it’s still a go-to spot for those hankering a good ol’ plate of old-school Singapore wanton mee.

Rating: 3.5/5

Our thoughts: One great thing about the signature dry wanton noodles (S$6) here is how generous the stall is with its dumplings. At the same time, we also enjoyed how delicate the noodles were. Unfortunately, the char siew was rather dry, which meant it wasn’t as enjoyable as it could be.

3. Eng’s Wantan Noodle

287 Tanjong Katong Road
Open: Monday to Sunday (11am to 9pm)

06 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-eng's wantan noodles
Eng’s is one of the most storied wanton mee brands in Singapore. Photo: Lynn Chua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? A best wanton mee compilation can’t do without a mention of Eng’s, one of the most well-known Singapore wanton mee brands. It’s also one of two parties embroiled in a prominent food feud.

This Eng’s is the one located at 287 Tanjong Katong Road and it uses the green bowl — the brand can also be found in a few locations around the island.

Rating: 4.5/5

Our thoughts: This was a great bowl of wantan mee (S$5.50) and we loved both the texture of the noodles as well as the juicy char siew and wanton. Spice lovers would also be enticed to try this stall since the fiery chilli is well-known for its potency.  

4. Kok Kee Wanton Noodles (Bedok North)

Yong Li Coffee Station, 01-140, 3136 Bedok North Avenue 3
Open: Monday to Sunday (8am to 8pm)

17 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-kok kee wanton mee
Kok Kee is a popular brand, garnering a legion of fans who grew up with it. Photo: Amanda Lim/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Kok Kee is one of the most legendary names in our hawker scene. Established in 1985 by a pair of sisters, many who grew up eating fro the stall have extolled it as one of the best wanton mee in Singapore. However, gentrification and a spate of recent expansion has us wondering how it fares these days.

Our Rating: 2/5

Crowd favourites: Overall, we didn’t think the wanton noodle (S$7.80) from this Bedok branch of Kok Kee was worth the higher price tag. Not only were the noodles on the soft side, the sauce was also rather sweet. The serving size was smaller than expected, given the price.

5. Chef Kin HK Wanton Noodle (Upper Changi Road)

59 New Upper Changi Road
Open: Monday to Sunday (7.30am to 8pm)

20 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-chef kin hk wanton mee
Chef Kin took the local scene by storm when he first opened his stall in 2021. Photo: Amanda Lim/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? This prolific wanton mee brand was first opened at Yishun in 2021 to much fanfare. The reason? It’s helmed by a seasoned former Crystal Jade executive chef. Its wanton noodles are different, done Hong Kong-style instead.

Rating: 3.5/5

Our thoughts: We felt that the highlight of the HK shrimp wanton noodles (S$5), which came with springy noodles submerged in a pool of flavourful pale gold broth, was the accompanying ingredients. 

Each bowl gives you an assortment of fried and steamed wanton, char siew and vegetables. The steamed wanton has a nice springy texture and there’s a decent tenderness on the char siew.

6. Wanton Noodle House (Bedok)

Bedok Shopping Complex, 312 Bedok Road
Open: Wednesday to Monday (9am to 9pm)

18 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-wanton noodle house bedok
This noodle house uses a family recipe that’s been passed down for generations. Photo: Amanda Lim/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? This renowned standalone stall at Bedok is one of the most popular food options in the east. The secret to its flavourful noodles is a family recipe that has been passed down for generations. Wanton Noodle House also serves tender braised pork and carrot cake — both of which are tasty in their own right.

Rating: 3/5

Our thoughts: The wanton char siew noodle (S$5.70) arrived springy and coated in a sauce that featured a good balance of savoury-sweetness. However, the wanton was average and the servings were smaller than expected, given the relatively high price.

If you aren’t looking just for wanton mee, we liked that the stall also serves a selection of sides, including carrot cake and ngoh hiang.


1.  Wai Kee Wanton Noodles (Jurong West)

Jurong West 505 Market & Food Centre, 01-14, 505 Jurong West Street 52
Open: Thursday to Monday (7am to 2pm)

19 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-wai kee wanton noodle
A classic wanton mee for the westies. Photo: Fu Yao/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Apparently run by owners who are affiliated to the famous Kok Kee brand, which many consider to be one of the best wanton mee in Singapore, Wai Kee is deemed a hidden gem by residents there. It is a good wanton mee option for those who find themselves in the Jurong West area.

Rating: 3/5 

Our thoughts: Our order of char siew wanton mee (S$4) featured very chewy noodles, watery sauce and thinly sliced char siew. While the sauce may be slightly watery, it was tasty and complemented the noodles well.

2. Ying Ji Wanton Mee

Taman Jurong Market & Food Centre, 03-172, 3 Yung Sheng Road
Open: Wednesday to Sunday (5:30am to 2:30pm)

21 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-ying ji wanton noodle
This is a popular destination for old-school wanton mee at Taman Jurong. Photo: Fu Yao/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? One of the more popular stalls at Taman Jurong Food Centre, Ying Ji Wanton Mee is known for its large portions and lean meat. It’s one spot in the west that you definitely need to visit if you’re craving for old-school wanton mee.

Rating: 3.5/5 

Our thoughts: As with many traditional versions of the dish, the char siew was the sweet and chewier type. Its noodles were thicker than usual and we liked how the wanton soup was packed with flavour. The stall was also very generous with its servings, considering prices start from S$4.

3. Kallang Airport Wanton Noodle (Taman Jurong)

Taman Jurong Market & Food Centre, 02-105, 3 Yung Sheng Road 

29 ev-wanton mee singapore-kallang airport wanton mee
You’ll find this brand at several places throughout the island nowadays. Photo: Fu Yao/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Despite its name, Kallang Airport Wanton Noodle isn’t actually located at Kallang. Instead, it can be found at a few locations all over the island. There are two outlets in the west alone, to serve those living in the area. Regulars say the wonton noodles here are above average, comprising tasty char siew and wanton.

Rating: 3.5/5 

Our thoughts: We enjoyed the established brand’s signature wanton noodle (S$4), thanks to its springy and flavourful noodles, crispy fried wanton and char siew that skews towards the fattier side.

4. FS Xing Fu Li 幸福利 

Sunshine Place, 475 Choa Chu Kang Avenue 3

15 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-fs xing fu li wanton mee sunshine place
This shop is a lunch hotspot for those staying in the secluded estate. Photo: Denyse Chua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? The rustic and far-flung Sunshine Place (don’t mistake it for Sunshine Plaza) is not a mall found on many bucket lists. 

But for those looking to expand their food options in Choa Chu Kang, did you know about this rustic standalone shop that is quite popular with residents?

Rating: 2.5/5 

Our thoughts: This stall’s wanton mee, available from S$3.80, sadly fell short. To be fair, the wantons, while small, were juicy and the noodles were acceptable, sporting a soft bite that feels different from the usual factory-made yellow noodles.

However, the char siew was too thin and the portion too little, which meant the noodle-to-meat proportion was too imbalanced.

5. Laifaba Wanton Noodles

Prestige Centre, 02-02, 71 Bukit Batok Crescent
Open: Tuesday to Friday (11.30am to 3pm, 6.30pm to 9pm), Saturday and Sunday (11 to 3pm, 5.30pm to 9pm)

05 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-laifaba
Many foodies say Laifaba is the best wanton mee in Singapore. We are inclined to agree. Photo: Denyse Chua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Laifaba is a hidden gem among many wanton mee fanatics, who are willing to make the trek to its rather obscure location for its delicious noodles. It first gained popularity when it opened at The Scarlet Hotel, amassing many fans due to its special “bu jian tian” (Chinese for “never see the sky” and refers to meat from the armpit) cut of char siew. 

It has since moved to an industrial building in Bukit Batok. Besides the top-notch food, the old-school decor and personable service are also why we think it’s a must-visit.

Rating: 5/5

Our thoughts: In our view, Laifaba could be the best wanton mee in Singapore, though its signature noodles (S$11.90) can be pricey. The signature char siew was succulent and can be ordered leaner, fattier or mixed, based on your preference. 

The noodles were chewy and mixed in a tasty gravy, and each bowl came with a lava egg. That said, the accompanying pork collar broth was the component that stole our heart. Akin to a lighter Beauty in the Pot collagen soup, we couldn’t help but ask for seconds.

6. Man Xiang Traditional Roast

TK Food House, Block 272 Bukit Batok East Avenue 4

14 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-man xiang traditional roasted meat
It’s a roasted meat specialist but the wanton mee is equally enjoyable. Photo: Denyse Chua/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? One of the more popular stalls in the Bukit Batok region, Man Xiang is a roasted meat specialist offering an array of meats such as char siew, roast pork and roast duck. While you can have your meats with rice, the stall also serves a great plate of wonton noodles. 

Rating: 4.5/5 

Our thoughts: To us, this place serves up a great plate that’s well worth its price tag of S$3.80. Not only do you get fatty and flavourful char siew that stole the show, it also came with an assortment of plump wanton. 

Although the noodles did turn out to be slightly saltier than we would have liked, it was enjoyable as a whole, as the ingredients blended well together.


1.  Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee

51 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5, Stall 5
Open: Tuesday to Sunday (7am to 4pm)

08 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-soi 19 thai wanton noodles
You can get Thai-style wanton mee here. Photo:Victoria Bok/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Unlike the usual traditional local-style noodles, Soi 19’s signature stands out from the other wanton mee in Singapore as it’s prepared Thai-style. This Ang Mo Kio outlet is the original flagship outlet that was established in 2012, and it often boasts snaking queues during peak hours. However, it has since opened another three outlets, including one in Jurong. 

Rating: 3/5

Our thoughts: This bowl of Thai wanton mee (S$5.50) comes with a variety of ingredients, such as sausage, chunks of char siew and fried and boiled wanton, to complement the star — the springy noodles. The sauce skews slightly towards the sweeter side, which means it can get cloying and you might find it hard to finish the entire bowl.

2. Hong Chong Wonton Noodles

Ang Mo Kio Central Food Centre, 01-21, 724 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6
Open: Thursday to Sunday (7am to 2.30pm)

16 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-hong chong wanton noodles
Where else could you get S$3 wanton mee in Singapore with this kind of standard? Photo: Victoria Bok/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? It’s a rare sighting these days, but this old-school wanton mee stall at Ang Mo Kio Central offers a bowl at just S$3! Hong Chong is a popular fixture in this area, for it’s known for its flavourful noodles, wallet-friendly prices and crispy pork lard. 

Rating: 5/5

Our thoughts: The wanton noodles (S$3) were hearty enough for a meal. It’s a good bowl that features springy and flavourful noodles, alongside a smattering of well-marinated and delectable char siew. Its accompanying soup gets a thumbs up, too.

3. Huang Kee Hong Kong Style Wanton Noodles 

266 Compassvale Bow
Open: Monday to Sunday (9.30am to 6pm)

27 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-huang kee hongkong style wanton mee
Buangkok residents, take note of this stall! Photo:Victoria Bok/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Those staying in the Buangkok area would have probably heard of this stall. Not only has it garnered plenty of commendations from those living in the estate, this quaint stall actually attracts quite a number of foodies who come down just to try its Hong Kong-style noodles. 

Rating: 3/5

Our thoughts: We found the noodles in the char siew wanton noodles (S$4.50) slightly chewy and thicker than usual, with a nice “QQ” texture. The char siew was well-marinated but slightly on the sweeter side. The star of the show? It had to be pleasantly sweet and juicy shui jiaos.

4. Swee Heng Wanton Noodle 

Chomp Chomp Food Centre, 01-12, 20 Kensington Park Road
Open: Thursday to Tuesday (4.30pm to 12.30am)

28 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-swee heng chomp chomp
Chomp Chomp doesn’t only just have stingray and satay, there’s wanton mee, too. Photo: Phyllis Leong/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? Chomp Chomp is probably more known for decadent supper classics such as sambal stingray or oyster omelette. But did you know the popular hawker centre also houses one of the more well-known wanton mee in Singapore? Swee Heng Wanton Noodle is a go-to among residents here, who frequent it for the friendly service and comforting noodles that hit the spot.

Rating: 4/5

Our thoughts: We can safely say this is one of the better options on this list and will satisfy any wanton mee craving. The char siew is nice and smoky, while the noodles were perfectly cooked till they had that “QQ” bouncy texture. The sweet-savoury sauce rounds up the dish nicely.

5. Li Fatt Wanton Noodle

681 Hougang Avenue 4
Open: Thursday to Tuesday (7am to 2pm)

25 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-li fatt wanton noodle
This wildly popular stall is one of Hougang’s best-kept secrets. Photo: Phyllis Leong/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? As Singaporeans, we always go where the queue is. In the case of Li Fatt Wanton Noodle, this under-the-radar stall is constantly plagued with long queues during peak hours, which means we had to try it for ourselves.

Rating: 3.5/5

Our thoughts: While we’re not sure whether it’s worth the queue, we do know that this stall serves up a pretty solid plate of wanton noodles (S$4) to satisfy any craving. The noodles were very springy and the char siew was lean, but still very tender.

6. Noodle Delight Chinatown Famous Wanton Noodle 

 262 Serangoon Central Drive, 01-89
Open: Friday to Wednesday (7.30am to 6pm), Thursday (7.30pm to 2.30pm)

26 ev-wanton mee singapore-hungrygowhere-noodle delight chinatown famous serangoon central
We think this is the perfect embodiment of old-school wanton mee. Photo: Phyllis Leong/HungryGoWhere

Why visit? No, this isn’t in Chinatown. Located in a nondescript coffee shop, Noodle Delight Chinatown Famous Wanton Noodle is one of the more popular eateries in Serangoon Central. It helps that this stall is located just five minutes away from Nex, which makes it one of the more convenient spots for those living in the North-East to get their noodle fix.

Rating: 3.5/5

Our thoughts: Honestly, at S$3.50, there were no real faults to this stall’s rendition other than the dry char siew, which is rather common for the old-school style of Singapore wanton mee. Ultimately, the noodles were springy and the sauce was comfortingly nostalgic. There was even pork lard! Have it with its chilli for an extra kick.
