Sio 19 Thai Wanton Mee

Heard the chef chance upon this version when he travelled to Bangkok about 4 years ago, in the northern part of Thailand. He managed to convince the owner to teach him the recipe to him.
That was some 4 years back.

Now open for about 2 years this stall commands  a long queue.Which at times can make a ridiculous  waiting time if you at the wrong time.  And add to it their opening days ..you have to check their face book. when they will be opened.

After checking their face book,Went  there early  around 8.30a.m. on Friday morning.There was a small queue waiting in the queue around waiting was about 10 minutes.

Bought the small and big bowl.

The condiments were self service.Can take as much as you want.

Of these the garlic stood out for me.Add together with the noodles,it does give some extra punch to it.

Small $3.50.A reasonable portion.Ingredients were same as the big portion,expect for one additional stuff in big portion.

Big Bowl.$5.00.Ingredients were char siew it was nothing much.The fried wantons(2 pcs) were crispy had a nice bite.2 pieces of  wantons.
The big portion  had additional ingredient like a drier,more meaty version of Chinese sausage .But was still  nice to eat.

The wantons were fat,plump juicy meaty.Did stood out on it owns.
Should have order a bowl of wanton soup.

The noodles were more than enough for a big eater like mee.
It was cooked right enough,with soft crunch and bite to it,not QQ,But it was good this way.
There seems like no what ever sauce were mixed.
But it had a taste ..like so natural bite to it, you can just eat it this way.
It did not taste like any of our wanton mee noodles.Maybe closer to a kolo mee.
But it was just too good.
Adding the condiment did give more extra brust of life to the whole bowl.

With or without the condiment this wanton does have a life of it's own.
 Eat the noodles as soon as you can ,It dries up very fast but still tastes good.

Bai Nian Yong Tau Foo

Yong Tau Foo no choosing.no dry version.Only soup or with bee hoon.

The yong tau foo stuffs were hand made.The prawn tau fu and the meat roll did stand out from the rest,though other stuff were good too.

Heng Ji Chicken Rice

One of most acclaimed chicken rice by food bloggers.

They open late in late afternoon around close to 4.00p.m.And seem to command the queue when  they open till they close here.

2 Nov 2014


I went there to have the Hakka Yong Tau Fu.But to my surprise the stall was closed a walk around the food centre,saw a new stall with a steady stream of people patronize this stall.
Out of curiosity just peek at the stall, with very generous greetings from the stall owners,to have closer look.
Told me they just open about 2 months only.They were selling simple  Chee Cheong Fun and some yong tau fu stuff.

Trying to be different in their Chee Cheong Fun($2.15) was served with vegetarian crispy goose meat and some fish cake like stuff.The chee cheong fun was reasonably smooth and soft enough.The added stuff did go very well with the wonderful light sweet sauce,and tasty chilly .It was very nice I went back to try the some of the other stuffs they had.

They had very little stuff on display to pick from.

They fry the stuff we choose.They gave me some extra bonus crispy vegetarian stuff .The stuffs all tasted crispy, very fresh.All the stuff went wonderfully well with same sweet and the chilly sauce as the above.
There were no noodles or rice for yong tau fu.I don't think the rice or noodle would have gone well with these style yong tau fu.They are meant to be eaten this way.
I loved the sauce ,crispiness and freshness of the dish.

I don't mind going again to have this.
