One Wantan Mee stall....

I took a mouthful, chewed and swallowed. Oh my, I have to post this on my blog. This is the reason this picture was taken with the 'eaten' look. I don't know how you like your mee but I like it in thin strands. Some are a bit thicker. Not only is the mee in thinner strands but it also tasted fragrant. There is no after taste of alkaline water and this is what I really like about the mee. The Ah cheh (sister) told me it is home made. The gravy of the mee is light and tasty with a tinge of sesame oil. The dark soy sauce doesn't taste smoky. I was told that this stall was formerly situated at/near the Caltex station. They have since acquired their own kopi tiam.Ah Koh (brother) preparing the wantan mee. Something he has been doing for over 20 years (could be 40), I can't recall as I was too eager to eat!
Order an extra bowl of wantan. The wantan aren't teeny weeny with no meat inside the skin. There is actually a meat ball inside the wantan unlike those you get from other stalls.You can find this delicious almost Hong Kong style wantan mee at Kafe Tong Sheng. Location: Jalan Dato Koyah, Penang. (Opp Lim Clinic)
