Kim Kee (Coffee Shop) Tanjong Rhu Wanton Mee 金记丹戎禺云吞面
We came by a few weeks ago and the stall was closed due to family matters (the sign put out). Benny said that he saw the stall opened last week (when he was here at Jalan Batu with his wife) so we made plans to come and eat. There was already a long queue when we arrived at the hawker centre and I was excited to be eating at Kim Kee Coffee Shop Tanjong Rhu Wanton Mee 金记丹戎禺云吞面 judging the snaking line.
The Kway Chap came very quickly upon ordering as there was no queue. The kway (noodles) was smooth and the braised ingredients ordinary.
The wanton noodles, the dish we came for… How did it fare? The noodles lacked eggy fragrance and QQ-ness. The chilli sauce was good and would taste better on its own without the ketchup, which by the way, was welcomed by Yama as the addition of the tangy sauce reminded him of his mom’s preparation. The charsiu was way too lean. The 3 pieces of small wantons were tasty. I think the dish would scored better had I ordered it in soup form instead of dry.
Was it worth the travel and wait? In my opinion, no! I think this stall is overrated. There are way too many better ones around than to be in queue for this particular stall 😉
