Fatty's Wan Tan Mee
On the recommendation from a relative whom is a foodie as well.
I ordered the $3 version which is sizeable for a small eater and the white version with chilli at the side. I'm not going to talk much about the chilli this round because I didn't really mix the chilli in.
For the wanton noodles, it's a good old school noodles that we have in the 1980s and early 1990s era before the tomato sauce mixed with oil and soya sauce came as a main stream for non chilli wanton noodles. (In case for people whom are not familiar, Singaporean wanton noodles are usually tomato sauce based and mixed with fried onion oil and soya sauce whereas Malaysian style is more of a dark soya sauce based which is getting common in Singapore recently)
The sauce is slight peppery in taste and has the chicken saltiness stock taste in it. Obviously oily as well as per oil school standard. Just to give the context of chicken stock taste, it's like kaka snack in the past or chicken seasoning powder that comes with instant noodles on a much lighter note.
The noodles is not the usual yellow translucent noodles that other wanton noodles stalls serve but it's more of a whitish and pale yellow noodles. The noodles are cooked to perfection, al dente texture.
The bowl when mixed together, brings back the old memory of school days in the past if you had been through it. However don't expect it be be extremely flavourful as it's not the kind of wanton noodles out there now that focused very much in making the wanton noodles salty or etc. It's just a good old school flavour.
The wanton is pure meat within and has a thin wanton skin. The meat is not aplenty, just like old school style.
The soup is so so, standard wanton noodles soup.
The char siew however, is not the standard dry char siew of the old school. The char siew is pretty tender though it's quite standard flavour.
In summary, this is one of the go-to if you want old school wanton noodles just like the nearby Dunman Food Centre Wanton Noodles at level 2 (not the same flavour though). Do give it a try when you are around the vicinity.

Suggest to park at Onan Road and walk a little. It's easier to find road side parking and healthier to walk
