We all have our favourite hawker foods, but one that we would seldom talk about is wanton mee. If you’re bored of the same old wanton mee you’ve always been eating, then it’s time for you to go on a new food adventure! Here are our top 4 must-try wanton mee spots in Singapore!
Dunman Road Char Siew Wan Ton Mee –
Truth be told, Dunman Road Char Siew Wan Ton Mee is a personal favourite of mine, so when it fails to get mentioned in most wanton mee lists, we had to include it here! Two things make this humble plate of noodles stand out – the texture and the spice.
Their noodles are unique, and chances are you’ve never tried them anywhere else before! These noodles are slightly thicker than the normal noodles we’re all accustomed to, with a tastier wheat flavor and enduringly smooth texture. That said, their chili sauce is the star of the show! Often called the “Spiciest Wanton Mee In Singapore”, this chili is strikingly spicy! Each bite leaves your mouth watering, yet keeps you going back for more. If you’re planning to pay them a visit, their signature wanton mees start at $3.50 each.
Location: 271 Onan Rd, #02-19 Dunman Food Centre, Singapore 424768
Operating Hours: 9:30am-4:30pm (Fri-Wed), (Closed on Thurs)
ENG’s Wantan Noodle –
Perhaps one of the most well-known wanton mee brands in Singapore, ENG’s needs no introduction. If you haven’t tried them out yet, then this is your sign!
ENG’s Wantan Noodles might be one of the best examples of a classic dish done right. From the homemade egg noodles to their small wantons, every aspect of this dish is polished and works wonders with every bite. Their fried wantons (from $5.50) in particular are especially popular, for their crispy, meaty treat!
Location: 287 Tanjong Katong Rd, Singapore 437070
Operating Hours: 11am-9pm (Daily)
Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee –
If you’re on the hunt for a fresh new twist to this time-tested dish, then you’re going to want to check out Soi 19! With 5 outlets across the country, this store specialises in Thai-style wanton mee, which in addition to the usual wantons and char siew, also includes sliced sausages and lots of lard!
Though it looks simple, this rendition of wanton mee has more than meets the eye! The lard oil gives the dish a smooth mouthfeel, while adding heaps of savory flavour. Their signature Thai Wanton Mee starts at $4.

Koung’s Wanton Mee –
We’ve mentioned Koung’s Wanton Mee before HERE, but for the uninitiated, Koung’s has been around for more than 50 years! With their authentic family recipe and affordable prices, this humble wanton mee stall at Geylang is a popular spot for breakfast among Easties!
They also have a second outlet in the west, located at JEM. Their wantons are still handmade till this day, and when you put that together with their fan favourite roasted char siew, it’s no wonder this stall is as popular as it is! Their signature wanton noodles start from $4.50 each.
