金记, Kim Kee (Coffee Shop) Tanjong Rhu Wanton Mee

Wanton Mee ($2.50)

For the longest time, this familiar wanton noodle stall operates under Blk 7 of Kampong Kayu Rd with the ever famous Tanjong Rhu Pau. Now the noodle stall decided to move into the adjacent Jalan Batu Food Centre; which is a good thing - for more seating spaces.

Operating hours are limited at 0630-1400hrs and closed on Sun; noodles selling out at 1pm, do visit the stall early to avoid disappointment.

I do ponder over their appeal to attract a faithful following; customers who form a short queue in front of the stall, ordering big $3 serving as i tuck into the ordinary-looking bowl of wanton noodle... Maybe it's the 'taste of old times', i reckoned.

The tomato sauce mix with a little chili is comfortably simple yet inviting; springy chewy noodles; thin skinned wantons with fairly average BBQ pork - it doesn't warrant travelling long distances for this; but if you are nearby or is a Wanton mee aficionado, this is quite a warm old-fashioned treat for the soul.
