One of the famous Hong Kong Wanton Mee restaurant has set foot in Penang. Opening their first Malaysia branch in Gurney Paragon, 5th floor. Tasty restaurant mainly served an a la carte menu of their chef specialities, wanton noodles, congee and a wide variety of dim sum selection. Bagging the title of being a One Star Michelin restaurant for their wanton noodles and delectable soup rich with the sweetness of prawns and pork taste. The quality of the wanton is similar to the one we tasted in Hong Kong airport. Most of their wanton are freshly made with their fresh ingredients directly flown in from Hong Kong.
Being born in the land of hawker’s paradise definitely sets my expectation higher. Hopping from one corner of the island to the other to seek for the best hokkien mee. Some may argue, there are better Hokkien Mee in KL or Ipoh has the best Chee Cheung Fun. But you can never go wrong when it comes to the authentic taste and originality of the hawker’s food, it would be Penang Hokkien Mee and Laksa. Wu Jia Zhuang at Jalan Siam outshine the others by serving the hokkien noodles in the claypot. This way, the soup will be preserved warm until one finishes the entire bowl of noodles and wiping it up to the last drop. Also in the list of their menu, Wu Jia Zhuang also serves some local favourites chu char catering for those who prefer to have fried vegetables or steam fish with rice. It definitely gave me the impression of healthy and light meal. Good news is, they served their chu char and hokkien noodles all day from 10am – 9:30pm. Their chu char will be next on our list
