According to the ST Foodies Club, there are at least 5 different types of dry wanton mee in Singapore: the traditional Cantonese wanton mee, the ketchup wanton mee, the Kuala Lumpur dark sauce wanton mee, the Sarawak kolo mee and the Pontian wanton mee. Sin Hoe Hin Dark Sauce Wanton Mee is a KL dark sauce wanton mee which is characterised by the use of dark soya sauce and oyster sauce as compared with the traditional Cantonese wanton mee which uses light soya sauce, chilli and oil.
I ordered a plate of $4 wanton mee which comes with delicious noodles topped with generous servings of char siew, kangkong vegetables, fried wanton and shrimp dumplings. The mouthwatering noodles are thoroughly coated with the flavorful dark sauce which has the unmistakable fragrance of dark soya sauce and the delightful sweetness of oyster sauce. The fresh kangkong complements the noodles very well, adding a different flavour to the dish. The char siew is tender and well-roasted. The fried wanton are crispy and tasty. The shrimp dumplings are extremely fleshy and appetizing.
Although I am a fan of the traditional Cantonese wanton mee like Hong Mao, Fei Fei, Koka and Koung's, I still find Sin Hoe Hin wanton mee very sumptuous. This is indeed the best KL dark sauce wanton mee in Singapore.
