This is a very promising bowl of Wanton Mee at Market Street Interim Hawker Centre. Just look at the amount of ingredients in my $3.50 bowl.

The portion of the mee kia is more than half the height of the bowl while char siew, fried wanton and choy sum sits on top. I actually have difficulty finishing the noodles even though what I had was the regular bowl.

It is not difficult to understand why this is one of the more popular stall that command a long queue during lunch time.

There are two pieces of very addictive fried wanton and another two boiled wantons in the soup. Of the two, I preferred the former more due to their crispiness. Who can resist fried wantons, right?

This thickly sliced char siew is roasted in-house. It has the smoky flavor and charred exterior that I can only dream of in a good char siew. However, the cut I got is very lean without any ounce of fat hence the texture feels rather dry and stringy to me.

This is just a personal preference but I am not a fan of dark sauce Wanton Mee. I would have asked them to skip the dark soy if I knew earlier. Nevertheless, the noodles have a springy bite and do not clump together.

This bowl of Wanton Mee is definitely value-for-money especially in the CBD area. My only worry is that once the food stalls here have shifted into the new food court in four years time, the hawkers would be in a struggle to keep prices low; I am sure rental and overheads in an air-conditioned food court would be more expensive than in a hawker centre.

Well, I guess only time will tell.
