Wanton mee comes in many styles. Our version is pretty close to Singapore’s Pontian chain.
Each of the wantons are filled with whole prawns, and noodles coated with aromatic pork lard. It’s a simple yet satisfying meal on its own.
Try making this for your family, as you would never get such big wantons outside and making your own wanton mee gives you special bragging rights!
