There is something strange about this wanton mee stall in North Bridge Road Food Centre. Firstly it starts business only after 8pm and secondly its signboard isn't lighted up when it starts business. Yet when I went there for dinner last Friday, I was surprised to know that people have started placing their orders as early as 7pm and there were more than 20 people waiting for their noodles by the time it's 8pm. I waited for more than an hour and certainly had very high expectations of the noodles.
I ordered a $4 plate of Koka wanton mee. My first impression of the noodles is that it has a striking resemblance to Hong Mao Wanton Noodles. Its impressive chilli sauce, which is more spicy and salty than sweet compared to other wanton mee, is delightfully flavorful and blends extremely well with the delicious noodles. The char siew is fresh and tender and the dumplings are big and tasty.
Despite its unilluminated signboard and unconventional operating hours, Koka Wanton Noodles is no doubt one of the best wanton mee in Singapore and is definitely worthwhile waiting an hour for.
