Ketchup Wantan Mee

Black soy sauce wantan mee is quite common everywhere but if you are in Pontian Kechil (yes! with the ‘h’ please), do not get alarmed if your wantan mee turn out red instead of black.

Wonder where does the orgin came from – ketchup wantan mee. Funny thing is, the whole town is selling ketchup wantan mee and no one is selling dark soy sauce wantan mee. Right amount of seasoning (i.e. light soy sauce + sesame oil) and sauces (ketchup + oyster sauce) makes one float in heaven with just one bite.

This stall owner has been in business for almost 20 years now. There are 2 shops that is quite famous of their wantan mee – Heng Heng Wantan Mee or this, 933 (yes, the Sillyporean radio station 93.3). I’m ok with either one. The noodle tasted the same anyway.

I’ve been eating this since 12 years ago when I first set foot in Pontian Kechil.  And whenever we go back to visit the old man, life is not complete without having a plate of wantan mee. Like the saying goes – Bread can’t live without butter, wantan mee can’t live without the pickle green chilies.

Not sure about you but I have a bad habit. Every mouthful of noodle must have a ring of the pickle green chili to goes down with it. And of course, there must be a bowl of wantan (pork dumpling) soup to go with the wantan mee.

errr…. do you want me to go on as how bouncy the fishball is? aitelyou, it can do 5 bounces on the table before rolling off the table!

    eh is it really ketchup? cos in kuching our kolok mee also got red one but it’s not ketchup but char siu oil. Cos after they roast the char siu hey got the red coloured oil which they use for kolok mee. But that is if u ask for it only then they use the red char siu oil. It’s damn fragrant

    The Queen says:  Definitely ketchup plus other thing dunno what.
