Candyce always wanted to try out thai wanton noodles at Soi 19. Since we are travelling from our Toa Payoh house to our new Yishun house for renovation check, we finally took this chance to try out this hype!
The owner humbly cooked this thai wanton noodle for years, until one day, a famous food blog talked about it and it became an instant food craze for all foodies in Singapore! Now, the queue for this stall is always very long! But don’t worry, their serving speed is top notch fast! However, you need to pray that the person in front of you never order 20 packets lah! 😂😂😂
After some time queuing, I left Candyce in the queue while I go recce the front aka kaypoh kia! 😝😝😝😂😂😂 The stall still have the gor zha (nostalgic) chinese wording of wanton noodle plus the standard media posting all over the stall front!
Zooming in, I could find traditional thai condiments like fish sauce (not in picture coz I took photo until very ugly) and chilli powder! 😍😍😍 Plus, there were deep fried pork lard, mama mia, my favourite but sinful sia! 😂😂😂
On the other side, there were braised pork trotters displayed openly to tempt me to buy them. They were calling me out, and I was salivating liao. However, our objective that day is to test out their thai wanton noodles! So empty my mind, and focus! self control! amitabha! 😂😂😂
Their menu was displayed clearly with proper pricing. Alamak, they just had a price increase and damn we were too late. Since the queue is still long, we started to talk about how good their business is and how people still buying their stuff even though their price is higher compared to other wanton noodle stalls in the same type of location. Good earning sia! 💰💰💰
In the end, we ordered one bowl of jumbo sized thai wanton noodle, fried wanton and braised pork intestine aka fen chang.
Thai Wanton Noodle, Sawadee!
Perfect Blend of Invisible Flavor
Unlike Singapore or Malaysia or Hong Kong style of wanton noodles, Thailand style of wanton noodles look shockingly plain in color. The noodles’ color is not polluted by any black or red sauce due to its transparent condiments.
But do not belittle these invisible heros, they make the noodles full of flavor. Soi 19 thai wanton noodles has made a perfect blend of condiments that makes noodles sweet plus salty at the perfect note. It is so perfect that I did not have to add fish sauce or chilli powder. In fact, I recommend not to put anything to retain the natural flavour of thai wanton noodle. 👍👍👍
Right Noodle Texture
The noodles are very well cooked: very springy and not too soft. Although the noodles look like mee kia, but the noodle type is almost like the same type that they used for Sarawak Kolo Mee.
Suitable for Meat Lovers
Meat lovers will love this thai wanton noodles! They not only have the usual char siew, they also have chopped sausages which tasted very much like taiwan sausages. For the char siew, they are very soft and is more of the fatty kind. Not forgetting the self-service deep fried pork lard which will add further to your sin! LOL!
To top up to the meat galore, we have braised fen chang. Their lau zhap sauce tasted sweeter compared to chinese style and the fen chang is harder and easier to chew.
Same Same but Different Wanton
The wanton tasted just like normal wonton with more meat. The meat inside are very well marinated so it is considered a very yummy normal wanton loh! 😆😆😆😂😂😂
Needless to say, fried wanton tasted like normal yummy fried wanton loh! 😝😝😝
I strongly recommend you all to try out this dish as it really tasted very different from usual wanton noodles in Singapore. It is so yummy that we forgot to take welfie until we emptied our bowls! 😂😂😂
While hawkers are competing among themselves with the usual wanton noodles, it is very smart for the owner to bring this dish to Singapore. Clear differentiator! Salute! Very NOTCHBAD! 👍👍👍
NOTCHBAD Rating: 4.5/5 Definitely Must Try!
