”Number FORTY FOUR!”… “FOR-TY FOURRRRRRR.”
The loud booming voice of uncle calling out customer’s numbers is one unique feature of this Wanton Mee eatery located at Roxy Square Katong.
First timers may be in for a little shock because it does get loud and louder, especially when some customers are MIA and don’t arrive much later.
Bei-Ing Wanton Noodles has been since operations from 1984, while the second generation owners are the ones doing the cooking now.
Noodle offerings to expect include Wanton Noodles, Dumpling Noodles, Shredded Chicken Horfun, Chicken Feet Horfun. Price per plate is $4 – $6.
They have sides such as Chicken Katsu, Fried Dumplings and Otah Otah.
Wait during peak hour weekends can be anything from 45 minutes and beyond. Don’t go away too far off because you won’t want uncle to shout your numbers repeatedly. Paiseh, can?
Portion is good for its price, especially when this is in an air-conditioned eateries.
And they take pride in presenting the ingredients neatly. Look at how they ‘design’ the black sauce on the plate with a swoosh.
There are many styles of wanton mee in Singapore, and I would say this is between the Malaysian and Singapore versions, with eggy noodles tossed in a semi-wet dark sauce.
The long thin noodles were semi-firm with a good bite, made more fragrant with all that crunchy pork lard.
Char siew was sliced thick, slightly more lean than fatty; while the fried dumplings were wonderfully crisp.
Accompanying soup was not bad too, cooked with chicken and pork bones and included with a lot of spring onions.
There is just something about the sauce, perhaps the level and type of spiciness may not be everybody’s favourite.
All-in-all, a good plate of Wanton Noodles which is value for its money. Perhaps if customers wait too long, they may come with higher expectations.
