Fans of the ever popular Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee from Ang Mo Kio will be happy to know that they have relocated to a newer and bigger location from their Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre outlet to [email protected]
Those who may not be familiar with this unique style of wanton noodles can expect, springy egg noodles, tender char siew, and crispy wantons tossed in a base made of pork lard.
Sinful as it may be, it is still worth checking out whether you are new or old to this iconic Thai dish.
Going after 10am is strongly advised because Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee is a popular spot for office workers before heading off to work.
The Thai Wanton Noodles come in 4 different sizes depending on your appetite. We will admit that it is probably not the cheapest bowl of wanton noodles around but after tasting it we totally forgot about the price.
We got ourselves the Large Bowl of the Thai Wanton Noodles (S$5) which consisted of a fairly generous portion of ingredients and noodles. What we love about Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee’s unique Thai-style wanton mee is that it incorporates pork lard as its base – incredibly sinful but oh so flavourful. The noodles were springy and had just the right amount of chew to it and we liked that the pork lard was so crispy and delicious.
To pimp up your bowl of wanton noodles, you have the option of adding in fish sauce, sugar, chili powder and even more pork lard (+S$0.50).
Another popular dish to have is the Pig Trotter Rice (S$6). Having seen it on the menu, we just had to try it out. We had no regrets because the meat was so incredibly moist and tender. It was extremely flavourful and we liked that a generous helping of sauce is ladled over the rice, allowing you to savour every morsel of this porky goodness with each bite.
To wash down all that goodness, we got the Thai Iced Milk Tea (S$2.50) and an Iced Coffee (S$2.50). The iced coffee was mediocre at best but we were impressed with the Thai Iced Milk Tea which tasted as good as the one we had in Bangkok.
Despite the fact that Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee’s new restaurant outlet is located in such an obscure location, there is no doubt that we will return just to savour some authentic Thai wanton noodles.
