Poh Kee Wan Tan Mee (葆记云吞面) @ Taman Desa Tebrau, JB
I was craving for a bowl of black wan tan mee, and my girlfriend kind enough to google good wan tan mee around Johor Bahru for me. Poh Kee Wan Tan Mee is on the top of the list when googled, I also found its website and below is the brief introduction of Poh Kee Wan Tan Mee:
"In the early days of Johor Bahru, there is a small town where the fragrant aroma of pandan leaves drifts through the streets. It leaves such a deep impression that this town is known as Kampung Pandan. Most of the residents in this town worked as farmers and it is often said that their friendship bond is stronger than the aroma of pandan leaves. It is in this town during the early 70s where bowls of delicious Poh Kee “Wantan Mee” were served to the villagers with a purpose to share bowlfuls of human warmth. So, whenever you have a bowl of Poh Kee “Wantan Mee”, you will enjoy not only just a delicious meal, but also appreciate the warm friendship among the villagers that has been passed down from one generation to another"
And so, the introduction made me feels more interesting and lit my desire to find out more of this famous and traditional wan tan mee.
The restaurant is quite hidden from the main road, but surprisingly, it was crowded when I reached there.
It was too crowded till I cant get an indoor seat, forced to have my seat at the smoking area. Nearly suffocated. lol. We ordered a bowl of soup wan tan mee, a dried black wan tan mee and some side dishes.
|Signature Poh Kee Wantan Mee 招牌云吞面 (Soup) |
RM4 / RM5 / RM6
There are three sizes to choose from, we choose the smallest 1, but it is more than enough to fill my stomach. The Char Siew is not the typical Hong Kong roasted char siew, this is the only flaw that disappointed me. I super like its soup, very flavourful to match with the springy, al-dente and fine noodles. The warm soup definitely satisfy my fussy stomach.

RM4 / RM5 / RM6
The signature dried version of wan tan mee, the taste is quite different from normal wan tan mee, which emits more aroma of sesame oil. The noodles is cooked just right, successfully retain its springiness. As the introduction by their website, this wan tan mee reflects the simplicity of village lifestyle.
|Yong Tau Fu 酿豆腐- RM1 per pcs|
The Johor styled yong tau foo (stuffed vegetable and beancurd), the fillings consist more minced pork rather than fish paste. The minced pork is very well seasoning, but I still prefer the Ampang styled Yong Tau Fu which is filled by fish paste.
