Fei Fei Wanton Mee 飞飞云吞面 (Joo Chiat)

I have heard so much about Fei Fei Wanton Mee and have always wanted to try it. There has been so much raves about it being the best wanton noodle in Singapore. When I happen to be in Joo Chiat, I had to detour to Fei Fei Wanton Mee and try this for myself! There are two Fei Fei Wanton located just a stone throw away from each other.
I visited Fei Fei Wanton Mee at 72 Joo Chiat Place. In this coffee shop, there is only Fei Fei Wanton Mee and it is open 24 hours daily.
We ordered 2 bowls of Wanton Mee (dry) and a bowl of Dumpling Soup. It was served to us within 10 minutes. Fei Fei Wanton Mee does not come with soup unless you order a bowl of Dumpling or Wanton Soup. 

Wanton Mee (dry) with Chilli
It looks like this bowl of Wanton Mee has nothing, except noodles!
After mixing the ingredients with the chilli
Ingredients such as char siew, wantons and vegetables are hidden underneath the noodles.

So what is so special about the wanton mee? The difference is the noodle / mee kia and wantons! Each strand of mee kia is smooth, thin with fragrant of egg flavour. It was cooked under high heat to ensure that the noodles are soft, yet spring without breaking apart. The spicy chilli sauce added flavour to the noodle. I really enjoyed the noodles! (now I know why everyone is raving about this) The wantons are filled with minced pork seasoned with whitebait, pepper and sesame oil. The down side is that the wantons are too small.
Dumpling Soup
We made the right decision ordering the Dumpling Soup. 6 pieces of big dumplings. Each piece was filled with minced pork seasoned with whitebait, pepper and sesame oil, prawn and spring onions! The skin of the dumplings were smooth and thin! The dumplings were delicious!

Overall, I like my Fei Fei Wanton Mee experience. The noodles / mee kia and the dumplings are fantastic! Wish that they open one at the north instead of having both outlets side by side along Joo Chiat Place.

    1. That is why I do not get the logic on why they set-up another stall just across the road. Could have set up one at the north. hee

  4. If you like Wanton noodles, one more Wanton noodles that is really popular considering that it's so near Fei Fei is Eng's Char Siew Wan Ton Mee in Dunman Road Food Centre. Looking at the crowd I was surprise that more people queue here than at Fei Fei. They are opening a shop in Tanjong Katong Road. :)

  6. I've heard so much about this place & went with some friends to try. Sadly, none of us like it. Maybe our expectation were too high. Didn't know there two Fei Fei.... we went to the wrong one??

    My fave vote still goes to the one at China Square by an 80+yr-old lady. She was on TV recently when they featured wanton mee.

  7. YES! It feels so good to see my favourite wanton mee featured here :) I grew up eating this with my family and I still remember the old man who used to make it for us.
