Parklane Zha Yun Tun Mee House (North Bridge Road)

Another visit to Parklane Zha Yun Tun Mee House. This time I went to the one at North Bridge Road just directly opposite Bugis Junction Shopping Centre.

Decided to order the Yun Tun Mee ( wanton mee). Standard should be the same right since its the same name = same owner. Well, but it was not.

Yun Tun Mee $3.50

The Yun Tun Mee comes in either $3.50 or $4.50, this time round I ordered the $3.50 Yun Tun Mee.

In terms of presentation, it looks messy as per normal with this stall. But disappointingly, the taste department failed. The noodles was not QQ nor was it springy. Moreover, the noodles was dry and hard.

The star of the meal is again the same Char Siew. Similar standard as the one at Bencoolen Street. Tender, flavourful and not hard.

The fried yun tun was similar to the outlet in Bencoolen Street, nothing fancyful to me as I prefer more meat fillings.

Bowl of wanton soup.

Hmmm, the home-made barley at this outlet is 10cents cheaper than the one at Bencoolen Street. No idea why.

Food arrives quite fast, maybe too fast that is why the noodles was hard and dry. Not sure if you were to try it on other days the noodles will be better. But so far, the consistency at the Bencoolen Street outlet is better. If I were to recommend, I would recommend the stall at Bencoolen Street, not North Bridge Road.

Parklane Zha Yun Tun Mee House (Bencoolen St)

This place has been around for a long long time. During that time, there were word of mouth that this is one of the best wanton mee in Singapore. And I must say to have survived for so long at such a ‘ulu’ place (Sunshine Plaza) is not an easy feat considering the options nearby are plentiful too. Ate it recently, standard is still on par with my last time which was years ago.

Oh yes, they have 2 outlets, 1 at Sunshine Plaza and the other at Bugis.  Will do an entry on that soon.

Parklane Zha Yun Tun Mee House (Sunshine Plaza)

They sell a alot of food, but I took down only these pictures as they are well known for their Yun Tun Mee (Wanton Mee) and Fried Yun Tun (Fried Wanton).

Yun Tun Mee $4.50, Home-made Barley $1.20

The Yun Tun Mee comes in either $3.50 or $4.50. As usual I go for the $4.50 (greedy me). Order the Home-made Barley $1.20, hot. Use to order cold last time, but since 3 years ago, have gradually changed to drinking hot drinks despite the weather. The home-made barley was thick and nice, strong flavour of barley.

The Yun Tun Mee. In terms of presentation looks messy. But well, its the taste that matters at the end of the day. For good food, I do not mind the presentation after all this is not fine dinning.

Mixing up the soya sauce and noodles, also for a better picture of the noodles.

The noodles here taste so different from those elsewhere. The noodles was QQ, springy, does not stick together. After mixing the noodles well with the dark soya sauce, its a deadly combination that wowed me away. The noodles taste so smooth, was well- cooked (Not too hard, not too soft)  and was not dry.

The char siew, an important part of a yun tun mee is frequently neglected by yun tun sellers, was a star of its own in this dish. The char siew was tender and flavourful. Surprising, it was not hard, but soft. I wish they gave more char siew as I found myself longing for more of it.

Fried wanton, thin crispy skin with little meat inside. Their friend wanton is quite famous, lots of people who frequent here always order a plate of fried wanton $2.00 to accompany their Yun Tun Mee. For me, I feel that its only soso. As the only and main thing I felt was lacking was more meat should have been added into the wanton.

Yun Tun Mee is accompanied by a small bowl of wanton soup. About 2 pieces of wanton. This time its not fried. The wantn skin seems different, is smoother and thinner than those you can buy outside. Again, I wish more meat was added.

Generally, the food arrives quite fast and turnover of patrons here is fast. There is always space which is a plus factor for diners. Price wise, its quite reasonable. And this is certainty one of the much better than average wanton mee around. I will certainty be back if i pass by here for a good meal of wanton mee.

Tow Seng Wanton Mee

Located at Albert Centre Market & Food Centre . This food centre has so many stalls, lots of people queuing up too. Normally when you are unfamiliar with a place, the rule of thumb is to go to the stalls where there is a queue. That was what I did. Not that this was the only stall with queue, several other stalls had queue too, but some looks very long and some I was not that interested to try yet.

Wanton Mee dry, $3.00

The wanton mee cost either $2.50 or $3.00. I ordered the $3.00 one dry with no chilli. The mee serving was alot. And the good thing was that the mee was springy (QQ) and not stuck together as a lump. It was easy to mix the bowl of mee and ingredients with  the sauce below. The sauce was well mixed and delicious. You can easily eat the noodles as each strand was not too long and seems ‘well oiled’ (if u know what i mean lol). I was full most probably from the huge portion of mee.

Char Siew and vege were average, just that some pieces of char siew seems too dry. Green chilli added inside enhanced the taste of the wanton mee.

Wanton

Wanton was average too. Not lousy, not fantastic either. I would say overall, this was a decent wanton mee meal. And I will not mind queuing up for it unless I find a better one in the area (too many stalls to try).
