Chicken Feet Noodles (Review)
I don’t usually review heartland delights, but sometimes these boutique cooks of local delicacies are so adept at their craft that it warrants notable praise. Sometimes they behave like artisan chefs much like the ones I recently met at DSTLLRY.
The only difference between them is that the heartland uncle and auntie working at the wanton mee stall spend, and also have, less time making small talk with their customers but spend more time churning out the food. But that aside, the intensity with which they operate is just fever-pitched madness if you think about it. Sometimes customer orders for their wanton mee can be 10 packets at a time. It’s an endless stream of noodles flying in and out of the strainer scoop. The signature whacking of the ladle against the edge of the cooking pot is also very telling – “the chef is making brisk bucks”. Okay I just had to say that.
So today, I decided to try their kway kar mee (read: chicken feet noodles) and it’s nothing short of oh-my-gosh awesome!
The delicately braised chicken feet or kway kar was just simply delicious. I added an extra order of their fabulous wanton which I couldn’t get enough of. It cost me an additional 50 cents! Amazing value.
The way they make their meat dumplings just reminds me of those dim sum places, very Hong Kong style. You probably had better wanton noodles but for the price ($3 and if you add wanton it’s additional 50 cents) and the fact that it was within my estate, I thought it was a rare find and a gem. It is the same price for the kway kar mee, so that’s a major plus for me. Some places sell chicken feet noodles a little more expensive than the regular wanton noodles.
Here’s the postal code location for those die hard fans who would want to venture a kway kar mee expedition. Go ahead Google maps it, it’s chicken feet I’m sure.
