I’m still kinda tickled by the title of this blog post. ? Well, I’m probably one of the few people in Singapore who has blacklisted the ‘famous’ SabX2 Wanton Noodle that’s located on Soi Phetchaburi 19 in Bangkok. Seriously, who needs SabX2 when you have tastier Thai wanton mee back at home? And I’m talking about Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee which is in no way affiliated or associated with SabX2.
Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee’s first and original outlet is located at a coffeeshop in Ang Mo Kio (pictured below) and is within walking distance from where I live so I consider myself rather lucky to have something that delicious near me. ?
Besides this stall in AMK, Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee has also expanded its operations around the island and they now have outlets in Jurong (130 Jurong Gateway Road, #01-211) and Upper Serangoon (#04-26 Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre). They even have a delivery service, Food Hitch, that offers free delivery with a minimum order of $30. So convenient for those who live or work in other ends of Singapore. ??
Pretty straightforward menu with detailed information on the different sizes of wanton mee so you’ll know the differences between Regular, Large and Jumbo.
Looking at these braised pig trotters is enough to make me drool every time. Besides wanton mee, this pig trotter is definitely another must-order.
Come here with an empty stomach and bring along your family or friends. Because the queue is always long, I suggest that you order bigger bowls of wanton mee plus pig trotters (with or without rice) to share.
I always go for the Large Bowl Wanton Noodle ($5) with extra ingredients and noodles. Very substantial and satisfying. ?
When your food is ready, help yourself to the condiments that are available. You’ll definitely go for an extra scoop (maybe more!) of that crispy, crunchy and moreish pork lard. The pork lard is so beautifully fried that you don’t get that greasy, oily taste in the mouth. And it is what makes this wanton mee so good because of its added texture and fragrance. You can buy the pork lard separately at $3 per small plastic container.
The noodle itself is also a star. Cooked till al dente with a nice springy bite and evenly tossed in what tasted like lard oil. So sinful but oh-so-delicious.
Ingredients of the wanton mee include char siew (a bit dry and lean), lup cheong sausage, fried wantons and vegetables. All make great accompaniments to the noodles as they provide contrasting textures and flavours that come together pretty well. The wanton mee also comes with a bowl of soup with two wantons in it.
The Pig Trotter with Rice ($5.50) comes in a pretty generous portion. May look a bit fatty but trust me, those fats really melt in the mouth. The meat also breaks apart very easily. So tender.
I like that the braising sauce is not overly salty though I must say it’s not the best I’ve had.
They do provide a spicy and vinegary chilli sauce to go with this dish. Good pairing. Overall, very shiok to eat. ?
