He Ji Noodle


Located at Jalan Kayu, next to the famous Jerry's BBQ & Grill, He Ji Noodle is one of the recommended wanton mee on Singapore Best Food Online Directory. The website also tells the heartwarming story of how the founder inherited the skill of making noodles with flour and duck eggs from his great uncle, how he improvised, persevered and finally perfected the art of making He Ji noodle that is so popular in Malaysia.

When I went there for dinner last Friday, I was surprised to wait for 20 minutes even though there were only a few customers before me. I couldn't help wondering if the long waiting time is due to the meticulous way with which the noodles are cooked.


Indeed the delicious noodles are special in that they are more springy in consistency than the usual wanton mee. The unique chilli sauce tastes very different from the usual sauce in that it is spicy and savory with an unmistakable tinge of pepper. The dumplings are tasty and complement the noodles very well.

A heartwarming story, a special noodle and a unique sauce. This is what He Ji Noodle is all about in a nutshell.

I agree the sauce is unique but I prefer the usual wanton mee sauce.

Despite all the controversy, He Ji wanton mee is still the best I've ever tasted in Spore...

I have tried their noodle, it is really Q Q and the chilli sauce really goes well with the noodle. From their name cards, they have opened another branch in 910 Upper Thomson Road... I will go and try one of these days! (Heard from their staff that the new branch has more variety of noodle. Yummy!
