The best wonton mee (云吞面) in Penang


It was by far one of the best wonton mee I have ever eaten in Malaysia. It was highly recommended by my hostel in Georgetown, Penang. The wonton mee stall opens in the evening only. You could see from the picture above that the plate was filled with generous portion of noodles, cha siu, steam and fried wontons, green chilli and fried pork skin. Small plate is RM3.50 and big plate is RM4.80. The price is considerably cheap compared to other parts of Malaysia.

I spoken to the owner of this stall. She said ‘They had been running this business for nearly 40 years. She is getting old. Her son has now taking over the business.’ I asked her ‘What is the secret of her recipe? She  commented ‘It is important we use fresh ingredients everyday. We do not use overnight ingredients.’
