Tempted and inspired by The Smart Local’s recommendation, my personal assistant N decided to try out Bee Kee’s Truffle Wanton Mee, which is (reportedly) a fusion between Singapore’s local favourite and Singapore’s latest food trend.
$6 per bowl, 6-minute walk from Serangoon MRT Station, 6 minutes to finish the whole bowl of noodles.
One gets a standard bowl of Wanton Mee at $5 and adds $1 for truffle oil.
For the uninitiated, wantons are chinese dumplings, minced pork wrapped in flour skin. They can be boiled, pan fried or deep fried.
Truffle Wanton Mee? Is It Really What They Say?
The fried wantons are crispy, the noodles are springy (i.e. boing boing) and the 10-pieces of Char Siew has good fat-to-meat ration. This gives the whole dish a multi-dimensional flavour and eating experience, layering from chewy to crispy and tender.
And the truffle oil, sprayed onto the noodles, is fragrant.
Backtrack a little, the Wanton Mee is good enough without the truffle oil, so if you can save a dollar and yet still savour good quality Wanton Mee.
On the other hand, the noodle is on the oily side (could be due to the truffle oil), and the soup tastes bland.
But who drinks soup when they are aiming for Wanton Mee?
What Should You Do?
N is a mad fan of The Smart Local, so when he gave the Truffle Wanton Noodle a 8/10, I take away 1 point for confirmation bias. At 7/10, this is a good find if you are bored of your usual food fare. If you are staying in Jurong/Boon Lay (a.k.a the Malaysia), you better find a weekend to do so.
