Pontian Wanton Noodles Review
I still remember I posted a picture of Pontian wanton noodles on my Facebook Page last year and I received negative comments on the taste of this noodle. I disagree with those comments and I tell you why.
Even though I am called as a “foodie” or a food blogger, I never underestimate or misjudge any food from other places without consulting the local. For those who did not know, wanton noodle in Southern Peninsula and Singapore uses tomato ketchup and chili sauce in their noodle. It is totally different that the Kuala Lumpur’s dark soy sauce version or Hong Kong’s light soy sauce version.
The closest version I tried is in Singapore. That was more than twenty years ago and somehow I managed to adapt to like wanton noodles in ketchup and chili sauce. You have to eat it with an open mind. Thus, do not expect every food is localised to our flavour so it will lose its originality.
So is this plate of Pontian wanton noodles tasty? I pass the ball to my wife’s family who were originated from Pontian. They fell in love with the noodles and this reminded them of the originals from Pontian.
Do not blame Pontian for their ketchup and chilli in their bowl of noodles. It has been that way for the longest of time. It is either you love it or hate it and nothing in between.
The small plate of Pontian wanton noodle is priced at RM 5.50 with a small bowl of wantons.
