Fei Fei Wanton Mee at Joo Chiat Place

Joo Chiat Place

Wanton mee is our default breakfast for many of our weekends in Clementi (we have a favourite stall in Clementi that is worthy of another post). Springy noodles coated with chili and lard, chewy charsiew with smooth wanton - what other ways to welcome the best days of the week?

I enticed Galen to make the (arduous) journey to the East for breakfast one special weekend. Okay, not me, but Fei Fei did. Nestled among the pastel shophouses along Joo Chiat Place, Fei Fei Wanton Mee is a landmark by itself. The traditional coffeeshop with tables just by the road; the special springy egg noodles; the chili with some secret ingredient - now, aren't you also enticed already?

For variety, we had Fei Fei's wanton mee, and Fei Fei's dumpling noodles. Both bowls were exploding with such vibrant colours that the sight of them immediately perked us up that morning.

Fei Fei Wanton Mee Noodles

Fei Fei wanton mee's noodle is the key to our hearts. It is very unlike the usual noodles used in other wanton mee- it's eggy, it's springy, it's like a cross between spaghetti and yellow noodles. I went wide-eyed when I popped the first spoonful into my mouth. Absolutely heavenly. To nitpick, I would have love the wantons- both boiled and fried- to be a little hotter.

Fei Fei Wanton Mee Chili

Fei Fei wanton mee is also famous for their chili sauce used for their noodles. The chili certainly did not disappoint. A little spoon like this is power packed with the right balance of oil and spiciness. Drench it right into the noodles and you get such a soul satisfying meal.

Fei Fei Wanton Mee Dumpling Soup

I call dumplings 'goldfish'. I think they look like them. For me, the skin of the goldfish must be thin, and I must be able to see what is lovingly wrapped in them. Fei Fei wanton mee's dumplings fulfilled my criteria. The skin was soft and smooth, and the insides were generously filled with minced meat and prawn. A real tummy-warmer.

Fei Fei Wanton Mee is a good place to start the weekends. After a hearty bowl of springy noodles and exploding goldfishes, get lost amidst the beautiful shophouses in the area. After some walking, perhaps you'll find yourself at the doorstep of Penny University at East Coast Road. With a cup of muddy expresso in your hands, continue immersing in the charm of the East.
