Tok Tok Mee is the ultimate comfort food and in Ichi Tong, the noodles are served in dark black sauce and garnished with your ingredients of choice. An order is combined with a bowl of wanton in clear soup.

For the kochabi tok tok noodle series, the owner has come out with delicious ingredients to introduce the noodle, such as prawn wantan, roast pork, seafood, and Taiwanese chicken chop. If you want to go upscale, try the Taiwanese-style beef or the spicy beef.

When you want some spiciness, go for the curry mee series. A bowl of Seafood Curry Tok Tok Mee is loaded with a flavorsome curry broth along with a huge prawn, clams, and a plate of deep-fried fish fillet. Chilli paste plays an important role in curry mee and the combination of it adds great flavor and aroma to the dish. The spiciness of the chili paste will make you sweat, so add gradually.

This dish priced at RM18.80 is especially popular at Ichi Tong. It is one of my favorites and is recommended to try it.

We also got the chance to sample the tomato soup series which is a milky-looking broth with a mixture of aromatic ginger and tomato flavors. The dish that came to follow was the Mee Sua in Tomato Milk Soup with a choice of deep-fried fish fillet. The garnishing of celery leaves accentuates the noodles nicely.

For the more adventurous looking for something hot and spicy, do check out the Sichuan spicy series. Prepared with Sichuan peppercorns and chili pepper, the soup comes with three levels of spiciness – spicy, very spicy, and super spicy (spicy is plenty hot for an average person).

We had the Sichuan Spicy with Fresh Prawn Wantan. The soup with spiciness and lip-numbing effect wins hands down for us.
