Burmah Road Wanton Mee

I think everybody knows there are a lot of good foods along Burmah Road in this beautiful island. Whether is at night or day… well, am going to share something about for the day.

Think you are not finding the Chinese Pan Cake (Apom) stall that next to Union Primary School any strange. Well, do you know the Wanton Mee stall that next to it is equally good and famous??

Hubby told me its brief history in fact, before they shifted to Burmah Road, the stall was actually located at Bawasah Road and Nagore Road back lane. If you remember there was a funeral parlor down there which is next to Penang Plaza. Some how that funeral parlor shifted place and this stall also.

When you’re out of idea what to have for lunch, you will tend to look for those comfort stalls, for example, this Burmah Road Wanton Mee.

Since it’s a road side stall, you don’t get to see lots of tables and chairs. You will have to grab whatever it’s available for that point in time. Tables and chairs are all line along the shops corridor also.

What I like about this stall is they are serving the noodle with those olden days bowl. If you remember we used to hear people call Wanton Mee as Tok Tok Mee… reason is because we hear them knock on the bamboo, and shout ‘Tok Tok Mee… Tok Tok Mee…’

Ok, back to the Wanton Mee here, noodle was served with stew mushroom and chicken, some vegetables and char siew. Though the char siew isn’t that impressive, but overall the taste is satisfying.

Some extra dishes like …

Vegetables and,

Wanton soup.

Absolutely a satisfying lunch!!

Note: the stall is manning by an old couple, and the stall is next to Union Primary School. Operate from 11am onwards.
