Best wonton mee in Singapore
Wonton mee, or wanton noodles, is a dish of Cantonese origin, but the húntún only got their name in the ancient Tang dynasty of 618 to 907 CE. Traditionally served in a bowl of soup with egg noodles and Chinese broccoli, this dish now sees iterations across Asia, with Thai, Hong Kong, Singaporean, Malaysian, and even Filipino variations. To help you decide, here are the best wonton mee in Singapore.
1. Chef Kang’s Noodle House

Chef Kang Noodle House is no stranger to fame. The venture by the Michelin-starred chef behind Chef Kang’s Cantonese Restaurant near Farrer Park presents his take on the dumpling noodles. Each bowl of Noodle With Char Siew And Wanton is priced at $6, and comes with a serving of juicy, charcoal-blackened char siew that previously you could only try at his restaurant.
The wonton here is big, filled with black fungus and prawns, and comes in bowls of milky, slightly peppery, pork-based broth. You get to add your own chilli to the dish, and I’d recommend not skipping it. It’s a moreish blend of dried shrimp and other ingredients─eaten with the crisp lard cubes and QQ bamboo noodles, this is certainly a great wonton mee.

2. Bei-Ing Wanton Mee
This stall has operated out of Roxy Square 1 for a good three decades and more. Bei-Ing Wanton Mee has seen a facelift of its menu and dishes, but the Wanton Noodle ($5/$6) is, at its heart, still a classic dumpling noodle. If you aren’t a fan of meaty wonton, the ones here should be right
