Top Three Wantan Mee in Cheras

Wantan mee or wonton noodle is a popular food in Asia. However, there are many variations of wantan mee in the region, even in Malaysia. In the southern states of Peninsula Malaysia, wantan mee is served with either no dark sauce or with chili sauce and ketchup. Thus, the southern version also uses “char siew” (BBQ pork belly) that uses red dye instead of the BBQ version in Kuala Lumpur.

There are many areas with good food in Kuala Lumpur and Cheras is one of it. Cheras was an old mining area turned to residential in decades ago and it has one of the highest populations of Chinese. There are three extremely popular wantan mee places in Cheras that are high recommended.

1. Hung Kee Shamelin (CLOSED)

Hung Kee is actually a popular wantan mee restaurant in Jalan Loke Yew and a couple years ago a group of investors bought their brand and shop and opened a branch in Taman Shamelin Perkasa Cheras. Coincidently, it is near my previous workplace so I get to eat their wantan mee at least once a week.

Hung Kee’s version of wantan mee uses a few types of oil to mix the noodle and that’s why their noodle is fragrant. If not mistaken, it should pork lard oil and sesame oil. The other highlight of their wantan mee is their char siew, siew yuk (roasted pork belly) and roast duck. The char siew and siew yuk in particular are definitely one of the best in Kuala Lumpur. The presentation of their noodle might be messy but the taste is otherwise. There is a reason why they so many regular customers and it is because the food is good.

2. Lam Kee Taman Muda

In Taman Muda, there is one unique wantan mee stall that opened more than a decade ago. The name is Lam Kee and it is one of more than a dozen food stalls located at Jalan Bunga Mawar 2 or Taman Muda’s “wai sek kai” (food street). The offer two main types of meat for their wantan mee and they are char siew and BBQ pork rib.

They made their name for its BBQ pork ribs wantan mee as there are only a handful wantan mee stalls or restaurants offer BBQ pork ribs. Hence usually the BBQ pork ribs are sold out before lunch time. Be there early to be safe or else you will miss the ribs.

3. Yulek Wantan Mee

Previously known as Meng Shiang wantan mee, the stall owners decided to open their own restaurant. This is probably one of the wantan mee restaurant  that showcase their greasy char siew (BBQ pork belly).

They have been selling delicious wantan mee since 1982 and recently allocated to their own restaurant. The highlight of their wantan mee is obvious, their char siew. I always love to order their “three layer” char siew as it is usually tender but insanely sinful. They are very generous with the portion of their char siew and they are usually packed during lunch hour.

  1. Dear reviewer if you consider soup wanton noodle instead of merely dark sauce dry type. There is one at Taman Yulek in the evening that will top your list.
    It is a road side stall just outside Cosway in evening along the main hawker street. It is a stall by itself with an ice Kajang stall at Cosway door step. Try it, and you might agree with me

  2. Just had a really nice wanton mee today at PUJ and that triggered me to find out more of best wanton mee around. These 3 places looks interesting especially the pork rib wanton mee. Will check it out soon.
