Restoran Pontian Wanton Noodles @ Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur

Everytime we dine in Sri Petaling, we seem to discover something "new" that we would want to try the next time. We saw a shop with the sign "Famous Pontian Wanton Noodles", and anything with the word "famous" usually gets our interest piqued. We made a mental note to try this place the next time since I am a fan of wantan noodles. 

The famous Pontian wanton noodles


Last weekend, we drove to Sri Petaling for lunch and coincidentally found a parking spot right in front of the Pontian Wanton Noodles shop (even though our original plan was to eat at Super Kitchen but the parking incident convinced us that we should switch plans). The restaurant still looks pretty new and interior is pretty funky (for a wanton noodle shop) with colorful tables and chairs, as well as bizarre looking murals on the walls.

Hubby had the ice jelly honey lime drink (RM2.80) which is said to do the following: cool you down, soothe your throat, as well as beautify your skin. LOL not sure how effective that is but it's a pretty nice drink.

Green chillies is a must when eating wanton noodles 


The noodles come in either black sauce, black + chilli or tomato sauce. I had the black sauce while Hubby had the black + chilli. All noodles are served with 2 pieces of fried wantons, a bowl of soup with 2 more wantons, char siew and choy sum. We enjoyed both types of sauces, the chilli one is only slightly spicy as it's more like Thai chilli sauce (sweetish). The noodle texture was good, I found myself enjoying it very much. The only letdown would probably be the char siew as it is quite dry and lean, but I wouldn't even mind if the wantan noodles was served without the char siew and just more wantons. We ordered an extra plate of fried wantons as it was pretty addictive - the filling is quite minimal but the skin is uber crispy and goes well with the noodles. The soup wantons are not as good as the fried ones but decent enough to enjoy.

Super yummy fried wantons (RM4.50 for 10 pcs)

Verdict: We enjoyed the noodles here as well as the fried wantons. Would definitely be back since this restaurant is very clean!
