The Place Located at the basement corner of Golden Mile Food Centre is Wen Kang Ji Wanton Noodle (文康記), a few months old stall in the popular Army Market Hawker Centre. Just a few rows from Charlie’s Peranakan Food, there was a long queue during my weekend visit which is quite a feat for a relatively new stall.
The Food Choose from Wanton Noodle or Dumpling Noodle. For the Wanton Noodle, it comes in Regular (S$5) or Jumbo (S$7). I went straight for the Jumbo size as I decided to go for the full-blown experience after queuing for 20 minutes. A generous portion if you are very hungry, the noodles are delicious. Tossed in chilli sauce and dark sauce, I like the slightly firm texture.
It comes with a few pieces of big dumplings, quite different from most Wanton Noodle stalls which serve smaller size dumplings.
My favourite part though, is the glistening Char Siew. For the Jumbo size, I am satisfied with the portion of the Char Siew. You get that slightly burnt edges, and a good balance of lean meat and fat ratio.
Very tender, and a very well-marinated version. It is one of the best Char Siew in Wanton Noodles I had for a very long while.
I also ordered the Fried Wanton (S$4), perfectly crispy, and it still was even after my journey home after my takeaway.
Rants Expect a queue during lunch hours, even though the stall location is at one of the most secluded spot of the food centre.
Will I Return Again? I am very impressed by the Wanton Noodle I had at Wen Kang Ji Wanton Noodle, particularly the Char Siew. It is now one of my favourite Wanton Noodle stall and I can’t wait to head back to have the noodles at the stall itself once dining out is permissible.
