Out of all the types of noodles in Singapore, wan tan mee is my favourite and what I miss most when I have been away from Singapore for some time. I quite liked the texture of the noodles at Joo Chiat’s Fei Fei Wonton Mee, although it’s not the best wan tan mee I’ve had. I have a preference for the one at Chomp Chomp and the one at the Lavendar Street Market. My partner likes the one at the Old Airport Road Hawker Centre.
Does make me hungry looking at it again. Noodles always have that effect on me. Total comfort food. It’s never a good idea to food blog at night when you’re hungry.
The simple coffeeshop at Joo Chiat where it can get quite hot and stuffy when it’s crowded.
As we walked down the road we saw another Fei Fei restaurant and wondered which was the original. Scrutinizing the sign, that one was called Fei Fei Wan Tan Mee King. This blogger investigated the situation and it’s a whole complex story about a grandfather and his grandsons. I think I may have eaten at the wrong place. This blogger seems to suggest that too. So next time I have to try the noodles at Fei Fei Wantan Mee King. Singapore is filled with food rivalry stories like this because hawker food is big business and Singaporeans will travel to the remotest corners of Singapore for the best.
