Meng Shiang Wantan Mee in Taman Yulek, Cheras

Restoran Meng Shiang in Taman Yulek is said to serve good char siew wantan noodles. Friends have raved about it and some even claimed it tastes better than the one at Koon Kee. On a Saturday morning, the place is packed with patrons and most of them were waiting for their char siew wantan noodles fix.


I placed an order for a plate and waited more than half an hour before I got my noodles. The stall is manned by an auntie and her children. They also run the stall selling char siew, roast chicken and roast pork with rice. That’s also pretty popular with the crowd.


Char Siew Wantan Mee

The noodles (RM4.50) looked and smelt promising. I asked for pun fei sau (half lean and half fat) and the char siew was just that. It had a good balance of fat and meat, with crisp charred edges. The noodles were cooked just right and retained a springy texture throughout. I also liked that there was little alkaline taste in it.


Half lean, half fat

Often, the sauce for wantan noodles is salty and one-note, but the stall at Meng Shiang got the mix right. It was aromatic from the sesame oil with a good balance of dark soy sauce, special gravy and porl oil. Good stuff!


Good balance of sauce

The wantan was pretty standard; I didn’t think too highly about it but it made a good accompaniment to the noodles. I prefer the wantan noodles at Meng Shiang to the one from Koon Kee. Try it for yourself!
