Wanton Mee & Dumpling at Peace & Joy coffee shop by what2seeonline.com

Wanton Mee with many toppings

Wanton Mee, another Penang hawker food is available in many places around Georgetown and I like to have it from the stall in Peace & Joy coffee shop located in China Street. Like in most places, the Wanton Mee comes in either with clear soup or dry type. I prefer my Wanton Mee dry which comes in flavorful thick black soy sauce, bit of sesame oil and pork lard.

The thin noodle has a perfect ‘QQ’ texture, springy and yet not too soft. It comes with pieces of char siew, choy sum (Chinese vegetable) and two versions of wanton. Being a char siew fan, I prefer this char siew as it is far better than those reddish ones sold in other places around town.

Small – RM2.50
Medium – RM3.00
Big – RM3.30

The Wanton Mee comes with two versions of wanton which were filled up with minced pork. The fried ones were super crispy and tasted delicious especially when dipped into their chili sauce. This stall serve both the chili sauce and  also the pickle green chili in a soy sauce plate which is hard to come by nowadays as most stalls would just place it alongside the noodle.

My hubby ordered a bowl of Sui Kow (dumpling) soup. The crescent shaped dumplings came in wrapper ‘skin’ filled with a mixture of minced pork and prawn. He finds the proportion between the meat and prawn well balanced, which subsequently gives a flavorful meaty prawn taste. The light clear soup was topped with spring onions.

Two for RM1.30

To achieve springy ‘QQ’ texture, the noodle has to go through the process known as “kor lang hor” in Cantonese. The noodle is blanched in hot water, removes and soaked briefly in cold water and then another quick dip into the hot water before tossed with their flavorful black soy sauce.

Mr Yam and his wife have been selling Wanton Mee for many years…more than 15 years now. Business was brisk on that day and it was nice of them sharing their time with me.

Loaded with two types of wonton (the fried version is the main attraction, I guess) & char siew, the noodles look quite springy too, this is good enough to make me salivate… Anyway, where is China Street? Near Carnavon?

Aiyoo your post came too late. Peace & Joy will be one must stop for us now. Besides I met the guy who stall is next to the curry me. He claimed he supplied his stuffs to Singapore hotels. Maybe you can check with him when you next visit. Also in front of the curry mee is the Hokkien Prawn Noodle which looks nice. The curry mee lady told it belong to them too!.

Hi CK, I just recently discovered another yummy wanton mee in town. It is at Carnarvon Street, Kwong Fatt Lee coffee shop. You can also try their fresh prawn dumpling. They also have pork leg noodle on every Saturday, gonna try it next time. Plus their hainanese coffee & toasted bread also taste good. It is worth trying.

This stall use to sell tasty Wan Tan Mee but the couple had sold off this stall to a young girl some where end of last year.

2days ago, I went to have my breakfast there… the dry noodle is very salty for the sauce, the soup is tasteless, sui kow smaller and the noodle is over-cooked till soft soft…

taste is totally out and the business also not much like before anymore….
