Sisters Wan Tan Mee @ Tanjung Malim, Perak
Sister's Wan Tan Mee is a stall that has been around for more than four decades. Originally, they used to operate beside Kedai Gunting Rambut Bunga Raya, and then they moved to the row of shops near Shanmuga Vilas Restaurant. Subsequently, they moved their stall to the morning market where they used to operate there in the morning market and followed by beside Maybank in the afternoons. Recently, they were evicted from the morning market as they had to only have Halal certified stalls. So, all the non Halal stalls have now moved to a new location in Taman Bandar.
Simple Set Up
I have been dining here for more than four decades myself and for me, this is one of the best Wan Tan Mee's around. Their preparation has been consistently good over the years and the taste had never declined. This applies both for their noodles as well as their Wanton's. This stall opens at around 7 am and goes on till about noon where they are mostly sold out. Prices have still been kept 'local' in that sense and service is speedy.

Their Egg Noodles are freshly made by them and that ensures that you get very fresh noodles. They are quite generous with the sauces too and overall, the dish is just fantastic. The only setback would be their Char Siew which isn't really great but still good for a day to day stall. My rating for their Wan Tan Mee is 10/10 and their Char Siew would be 6/10.
Their pickled chilli is also very fresh and unlike some stalls that lazily slice them thick, here you get perfect fine cuts that is just about the right size. In the last 40 odd years that I have been dining here, never have I come across stale of not so fresh chili. The other fantastic preparation that is not to be missed here is their homemade Wantons. They are made using pork and taste wise it's absolutely heavenly. My rating for this shall be 10/10 as well.
Having dined at this stall for decades, I am very impressed with the consistency of their noodles. Their Wan Tan Mee has always been excellent and the taste has never dwindled. Even their homemade Wanton's are excellent. If you happen to drive pass Tanjung Malim, I would definitely recommend doing a stop over for breakfast at this stall. Good food and reasonable prices.
