Having heard so much about the best wantan meen place at Loke Yew, but we have yet to been there. One fine day when everyone is not too famished, KampungBoy and his ex-colleagues braved the traffic to Hung Kee located along Jalan Loke Yew . It was started in 1965 by the Phoon family as a small shoplot but business is so good that it has been expanded to two air conditioned shoplots now.
Everyone’s patience is tested to the limit as it is almost impossible to get a proper parking space and you have to actually wait for a table on a weekday lunch hour. We do hope that the food will actually make the hassles that we have been through all worth while.
The thin strands of wantan meen are hand-made. Everyone loves the springy texture of the noodles tossed in dark coloured soya sauce. Each servings of wantan meen come in a big bowl of wantans. Other than the obligatory glistening and sticky sweet char siu (bbq pork), you can opt for other side dishes such as siu yoke ( roasted pork), roasted duck, siu kow and braised chicken feet mushroom too. The char siu and siu yoke is not as good as expected though but Hung Kee is still a decent place for a good plate of wantan meen.
