Hong Ji Mian Shi Jia

Have been wanting to head back here for their Wanton Noodles but did not get the chance over these 9 years. Despite the 9 years difference, the stall front of Hong Ji Mian Shi Jia looked similar as before just that the pricing of the food has been adjusted.

The "Bak Poh" lover screamed in joy when the serving was self-help. The standard of the Char Siew Wanton Mee tasted as good as our last visit about a decade ago.

Our Orders

 The noodles were fairly thinner than our usual Mee Pok and has a springy texture. Coupling in the mixture of sauce and lean pieces of Char Siew, they were absolutely satisfying. 

Char Siew Wanton Mee - $4 (Small)

Perhaps the noodle was so tasty that I had even forgotten about our bowl of wantons in soup. The soup was special to me and tasty with wantons. 


We had a bowl of dumplings as a side order. Given a bowl of 5 dumplings in soup with some vegetables, I would say that they tasted above average!

Dumplings Soup - $4

Hong Ji Mian Shi Jia's Wanton Mee is still one of the few that has such traditional taste. I hope to be back quickly for other items on their menu and not another lapse of 9-10 years again!

Many thanks to wonderful colleague who drive us all the way to Telok Blangah Food Centre to explore good food given a tight timing over our lunch hours. Even though we were slightly late abit for lunch time, we managed to join in the constant snaky queues and grab a table nearby.

Recommended by Mr Seetoh of Makansunstra and with Mr Lesie Tay's writeup, it had already won my heart over for their Wantan Mee, not to mention even if their queue is long.
From the press

Presentation cant tell how good from these set of Wantan Mee. In fact, I was quite disappointed to the scattered Char Siew Meat on top of our plates as they were inconsistent but that was just mere first impression afterall.

Wantan Mee - $3 / $4

Uninteresting, it may seem but the noodles were good and the differences are distinctive. Thin and springy, a definite sign of authentic Hong Kong Noodles. Doused with sweet light soy sauce and chilli, it complemented well. It was good when the spiciness kicks in as I "chomp" them down with these lean pieces of BBQ pork. Yummy!

Not to mention that the wantans were different too, they had bites of chestnuts rolled up by the minced meat and wrapped by the smooth faint yellow wanton skin. The soup base was special too and pack with hints of prawn taste.

If you still have room for dumplings, do try their prawn dumplings too. The Dumplings fillings were generous!

Prawn Dumplings Soup - $3

 Chicken Claw Mushroom Noodle as well as Oyster sauce vegetable noodles are available too.
