Fei Fei Wanton Noodles

The race to win the title of Singapore's best wanton noodles has narrowed down to two contestants, Fei Fei Wanton Noodles versus Hong Mao Wanton Noodles. Coincidentally or not, they are situated at close proximity to each other in Joo Chiat. Hong Mao Noodles opens only in the morning and finishes selling after lunch whereas Fei Fei Noodles opens the whole day and has a franchise in the opposite coffee shop. At this point in time, you should be able to judge who is the more deserving winner. Since this post is on Fei Fei Wanton Noodles, I shall not digress any further.

Fei Fei Wanton Noodles is characteristic in that it does not come with soup, unless you order an extra bowl of wanton soup. But after you finish your noodles, you can bring the bowl to the owner and she will fill it up with piping hot wanton soup. The noodles are smooth and has a special egg taste. The chilli is extremely spicy and has a tinge of pepper in it. The dumplings are tender with a distinct smoky aroma. Ask for a normal bowl of wanton mee with an extra bowl of wanton soup which cost only $4.50 and you will get a whole lot more value for money.

Indeed Fei Fei wanton noodles is one of the best in Singapore. If you have a craving for wanton noodles in the middle of the night, you can drop by its franchise which is open 24 hours.

I just went today, i'm not sure if there's been a change in ownership, but the quality was pretty appalling. Its my first time to Fei Fei so I cant compare with its probably-better predecessors, but I've seen a couple of wantan noodles in my life, and the moment this pile of gar-bhage was placed in front of me, I knew my money had been wasted. Noodles cooked too soft (and not seem to have been kneaded to be al dente to begin with), char siew so dry they're on their way to becoming bah kwa. And the chili sauce seems to be for kway chup, not wantan mee. Only the wantan provided a little redeeming factor. Not going back ever, so sorry to say. Going to try Hong Mao in the same area next if I go back.

Love your blog mr kensong, was wondering if you can index your entries by location so that foodies can taste your recommendations if they happen to be in the area, cheers man, happy 2010 to you.
