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.
Noodles with Barbecued Pork (RM15.80)
Despite the ordinary presentation, it is definitely worth a trip to come by their restaurant to savour the scrumptious bouncy noodles. The noodles are made fresh from scratch using flour, duck eggs and water mixed together. The noodle is served on the spot, not too soggy nor it is too hard. Being listed in the Michelin guide we would presume to have a set of standard and quality there. Due to the branding, the prices are unreasonably on the high side for a plate of wanton noodle with barbequed pork.
House Specialty Wontan in Soup (RM16.80)
For a bowl of 8 pieces of wanton at the same price with the wanton noodles definitely made a statement. I don’t deny the wanton is one of the best wanton I ever eaten. Maybe i’m more in favor of prawn based wanton over the purely minced pork wanton wrap. To have a combination of minced pork and prawn with some seasoning wrapped in a thin wrap wanton skin wins the heart of many people. The thin wrap wanton compliments the sweetness of soup.
Salted Lean Pork & Preserved Egg Congee (RM15.80)
The hong-kong style congee can rarely be found in Penang. I probably didn’t look hard enough in every corner of Penang for it. The texture of the congee just melts into your mouth. It was like drinking the congee more than eating it. It was slightly too watery for my liking and the salted lean pork was not rich in taste. That said, adding the preserved egg improves the overall taste of the congee. The portion was lesser than we expected it to be. The locals may have a stronger taste preference compared to our fellow hongkie friends.
