Why do restaurants charge an arm and leg for comfort food? We’ll never know. But what we do know is that many chefs are leaving to start their own businesses selling affordable yet tasty food. Like former head chef of Crystal Jade, Chan Wing Kin, who recently set up shop in Yishun selling Hong Kong-style wanton mee for S$5 at the self-named Chef Kin HK Wanton Noodle.

Unlike the wanton mee we commonly find around Singapore, the Hong Kong version is basically served in a bowl of soup with prawn dumplings instead of the usual char siew. Made by the hands of an expert, S$5 for one bowl is definitely a steal when compared to the myriad of wanton mee stalls you can find around the island. For the same amount, one can also opt for a plate of dry wanton mee—drenched in aromatic soy sauce and oyster sauce.

However, if a bowl of wanton mee isn’t what you’re looking for, you can find a list of other items off the menu like a bowl of Braised Beef Brisket Noodles (S$5.50) and Fried Wantons (S$4).

If you are craving a good bowl of wanton mee, make your way down the Yishun and visit Chef Kin HK Wanton Noodle stall for a treat!
