A few weeks ago, I noticed that a new shop has taken over the spot where Traditional Penang Food used to be. It is a new wanton stall called Wan Tan Kia, which can be loosely translated into “the wanton boys”.
Wan Tan Kia opened its first stall at Esplanade Xchange and it has since opened branches in Marine Parade and various MRT stations.
I like that it is located in MRT station, making it easy for commuters like myself to grab a quick bite. Let’s check out this new wanton noodle shop.
There are only 6 items on the menu which takes out the hassle of having to choose from different options.
This is their Signature Dry Wanton [S$3for Regular, S$4 for Medium, S$5 for Large]. I like that the egg noodles does not have a strong yeast taste but the portion is a little small. It comes with char siew, wanton and vegetables.
There is also soup version Traditional Wanton Noodle Soup [S$4.50 for Regular, S$5.50 for Large].
There is also Traditional Fried Wanton [S$3 for Regular, S$4 for Medium, S$5 for Large] and Traditional Wanton Soup [S$3 for Regular, S$4 for Medium, S$5 for Large]. You get 9 pieces of wanton for $3, that’s very generous.
The Speciality Homemade Ngoh Hiang [S$5] are freshly-made upon order. These delicious bite-sized ngoh hiang are filled with pork, prawns and chestnut. Served with maltose, it is sweet and savory at the same time with a nice crunch from the chestnuts.
