Another lovely overcast Sunday morning. The sun was slightly obscured by fluffy clouds. No chirping of birds but I can hear some honking around. It’s still a very delightful day for a perfect brunch. KampungBoy is so happy about making decision today (it’s his turn today) that make me grow suspicious. Usually he would just shove it off and ask me to decide on where to eat. The truth is he has been here for three times without me (!!) and to make thing worst he kept ranting and raving about the Oh So Tender beef brisket wantan mee from Ho Weng Kee.
The Wantan Mee with beef brisket (RM 5.00) is absolutely delicious. This is the fourth time KampungBoy orders this. After long hours of cooking in slow fire, the beef briskets are flavourful, fork-tender and moist. Apart from that, the noodles are springy and the sauce with dashes of sesame oil is full of flavour. KampungBoy’s colleague recommended the dried mandarin peel duck and braised chicken feet with mushroom too.
I gave the Curry Wantan Mee (RM 5.00), their house specialty a try. The curry broth is rich and aromatic, and the noodles were fine enough too, but the combination of both seems weird for me. I would prefer my curry noodles with hor fun, yellow noodles or rice vermicelli but not wantan mee.
Not satisfied with the measly small portion, we ordered the Siu Kow (dumpling) too. With a minimum order of five (RM 4.50), it comes in a bowl of hot soup with spring onion garnishing. The siu kow with beautiful classic pleats never fail to amaze us.
The RM 15 is truly well spent as I’ve decided not to be angry of him over the eaten-nice-wantan-mee-three-times-without-me matter anymore.
