Sungai Besi Wan Tan Mee @ Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur

For many years, I have been hearing about this famous Wan Tan Mee place in Sungai Besi that is open in the evening till the wee hours. I have heard so much about the place but never got the opportunity to visit them since Sungai Besi is a little off my radar. Somehow, along with some friends who are Wan Tan Mee lovers, we planned to head there this evening since a visit to this stall has been long overdue. 

The Famous Wan Tan Mee Stall
It is a stand alone Wan Tan Mee stall right along the main Sungai Besi Road. We were here at around midnight and the place was packed with customers. There were a lot of cars parked by the side of the road and they even have a private parking space just before the stall. My recommendation would be to park at this private parking space since it's a little more secured than just leaving your car by the side of the road with no visibility at all. 

Their menu had a few variations to their main offering which is the Wan Tan Mee and a few other add on dishes. Practically, there is at least 10 plus variations to your Wan Tan Mee that you could choose from. This includes simple differences like Char Siew or Siew Yuk and they even have Pork Ribs Curry Wan Tan Mee as well. Prices are not cheap and that naturally comes with popularity. Service levels were speedy. The waiters were quick to take your orders but the waiting time was quite a bit. Not that they were slow but it's solely because they had too many orders.

Leong Sui @ RM 1.80

Siew Yuk @ RM 18.00
Their Leong Sui was something that we all enjoyed. It was concentrated and really refreshing. So much so, we had two glasses each. My rating for their Long Sui would be 9/10. Their Siew Yuk was really good as well. The skin was crispy, the fatty part sufficiently moist and the meaty part really juicy. Overall, it was a treat and my rating for this shall be 9/10 as well. 

Char Siew Wan Tan Mee (Small) @ RM 6.80

Clear Soup with Wanton's
We had ordered the small portion of Char Siew Wan Tan Mee since that's the norms that we would go for. I found their Char Siew to be decent only, nothing great to shout about and it was a tad too fatty for me. My rating for this shall be 8/10. Their Wan Tan Mee was also nothing great. Honestly, I have tasted much better ones even in Kuala Lumpur. Perhaps, it may have been very good once upon a time but the quality has surely dropped now. The noodles were not as springy as they should have been and the overall mix of sauces were so so as well. If I were to rate this, 7/10 shall be my rating. They had also served a bowl of clear soup that comes with a few pieces of Wantons. The soup was nice and the Wantons were above average quality. Again, 8/10 would be my rating for this. 

Sungai Besi Wan Tan Mee is a stall that needs no introduction to Wan Tan Mee lovers in the Klang Valley. They are so famous and have been around for decades. However, I found their Wan Tan Mee to be above average only. Perhaps, the quality has dropped over the years. However, their Siew Yuk was really good and that is something that I would recommend here. Nevertheless, still a decent plate of Wan Tan Mee to have, especially when you're craving for this in the wee hours.
