Haiz...Why Didn't I Go Next Door?


Sometimes you are just curious. You know that the wanton mee somewhere is da bomb but you just have to try out the other one. Who knows it might be vavavoom!

Side track a bit. Actually I wanted to eat pad thai at Mr Tuk Tuk. I got there at 11:00am sharp and was told that they open at 11:30am. Alamak. I wasn't going to hang around at the mall just for the pad thai, so I decided to eat wanton mee. At Seng Kee Chicken Rice.


Why do you want to eat wanton mee at a chicken rice place? Because I saw customers eating plates of wanton mee when I was last there for dinner with my partner (we had chicken rice of course).


Who knows? It might be nice. As usual, I like to have Kopi O, iced no sugar.


Mmmm....looking good. I could taste shallot oil and there were 2 or 3 pieces of pork lard. But somehow....it was lacking in oomphhh.

Nope, no thrill at all. Don't get me wrong, this plate of wanton mee is decent but if you are going to be hoity toity and compare to the one a few doors away, then this is not for you.


The tiny wantons were solid and had a nice sesame oil aroma. The soup had a mild chicken aroma (I believe this must be the stock from poaching the chickens) and it was bland.


I guess that means I won't be back for the wanton meeThey have Katong Laksa on the menu too. Should I or should I not?



I nipped back into the mall for some cuci mata and spotted this nice flower stall. I circled the display like a vulture but dared not go near. You know me. Me and plants and flowers is an affair waiting to happen.


No. No. No. Lead me not into temptation.

  3. I vote that you try the Katong Laksa so that you can write a detailed review about it. If you say no good then I don't have to go and try, hehehehe thanks to you. :) Ah, the Pad Thai have to wait for another day!

    1. It looks good but unmemorable, hence I did not comment on it.

  5. Better stick back to Chicken Rice.. but it is quite common to see wanton noodles in chicken rice shop, maybe some like to have their meat over a plate of noodles instead of rice.

  6. So, you didn't like the wantan mee sauce too (like me). How was the char siew? I have to say that the char siew you got looked a lot different from the one I had (tweaked the recipe again?). One shouldn't keep tweaking the recipes once they open (they should do all the tweaking before they open)! >_< Confirmed this is not the good wantan mee that TM was referring to then. :(
