Did someone say Truffle wanton mee? I’m on it. Located within a coffeeshop at 2 Lorong Lew Lian, a stone throw’s away from NEX, is Bee Kee Wanton Noodle that serves up the crazy combination of truffle and wanton mee.
Truffle Wanton Mee ($8)
Love it, and I’m absolutely impressed by the aroma of the truffle as I tossed the noodles, which aren’t your regular yellow egg noodles; the noodles used are of an almost translucent permeability and are flat, not rounded.
It’s springy, less alkaline and delicate, mixes well with the truffle oil. Definitely a refreshing touch to the usual noodle we’re familiar with.
The ingredients are rich, with generous servings of char siew (roasted pork), fried wanton (dumplings) and steam wanton — the steamed wantons are soft and savoury, but the fried ones stole the show; the skin is thin and crispy fried, providing a great crunch for the fillings.
Braised Pork Soft Bone Wanton Mee ($5)
Even without the truffle oil, the other variety of noodles served at Bee Kee are pretty smashing. The braised meat is exceedingly tender and breaks away easily, with the right amount of fat.
All thumbs up for Bee Kee’s truffle wanton mee, it’s definitely worth your time and calories and money, you get the drift.
If you’re dining with a partner, why not order both and mix the truffle noodles with the original flavour, creating a plate of noodles that doesn’t completely alienate the traditional wanton noodle.
Also, pork lard is served separately so you can help yourself to it endlessly; and that my friend, is the holy grail.
Expected damage: $5 – $8
