Keong Kee Wantan Mee, Seremban

One of the things I have enjoyed since childhood is wantan mee. Wantan mee is a Cantonese noodle dish, served either in soup or dry, and garnished with vegetable (choy sum), roast pork (char siew), and wantan. Wantan is a type of dumpling, usually with minced pork fillings.

I was delighted when recently, I discovered a stall in Seremban serving the most delicious wantan mee! The egg noodles were springy, coated with a sticky sweet sauce and were totally awesome. Even when we tapao (take away) the noodles home to eat, the noodles retain its texture. The wantans are served in a separate bowl with soup. The noodles are best eaten with the sour green chillies.

At other places, my limit is usually 1 portion of noodle but here, I can eat as much as 1 1/2 which equates to a medium portion.

The great thing about the noodles here is that it is homemade by the owner of the stall himself, so no preservative is used. The business is now in its 3rd generation. Both the owner and his son are very friendly folk.

The Unc being adventerous and all, decided to try the curry wantan mee one day. The curry broth was thick and flavoursome, however The Unc still prefers the dry version. The wantan mee is topped with lean chicken breast and tofu puffs.

Another fantastic dish they serve here is the chicken feet in herbal soup. The chicken feet have been deep fried first to make them puffy before being braised in the herbal soup. I like the herbal soup very much, it is warming and very delicious.
