    If sweet char siew is how you roll, then you’re gonna go crazy for this place. Patrons swear on these little chunks of honey caramelized meat, each with the perfect amount of lean and fatty bits. Here’s a fun fact for you: the sui kao are made hourly by hand so if you’re the type who fusses about freshness, then fret not! Each dumpling is stuffed with a combination of minced pork, prawns, and black fungus. Some argue that two pieces aren’t enough! The siew yoke on the other hand is nothing to shout about. The texture is rather tough so customers would usually just stick to ordering char siew.
    Tips

    Sui kao (dumplings) are a MUST TRY!

    Things to expect

    The place is usually packed, even during weekdays, which also means parking is always a challenge. Food is also on the pricey side.

    Best with

    Their homemade chilli.

    Price

    RM5.00 to RM7.00

    Another family business going way back to the 1920s, Toong Kwoon Chye is operated by Madam Yap, a third generation shop owner who’s still dedicated to serving her grandfather’s signature wantan mee. Unlike the traditional black sauce version of this dish, their specialty is simply curry sauce over plain noodles. And instead of char siew, its braised mushrooms and chicken feet (char siew and wantan are options too). Noodles can be served in soup or dry, depending on your preference.
    Tips

    Have a chat with Madam Yap and you’ll probably be able to catch the history about how it all started.

    Things to expect

    Occasional inconsistency with their food flavours.

    Best with

    Braised mushroom and chicken feet to go with your meal.

    Price

    RM4.00 to RM6.50

    Wantan Mee Stall at Changkat Tong ShinNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    TChangkat Tong Shin Wan Tan Meehis little hawker stall is located right at the corner of Tengkat Tong Shin, parallel to Jalan Alor. It’s said to have one of the best tasting wantan mee in KL, and the crowd that flocks there for supper time will vouch for that. The man behind the meal is affectionately known by patrons as ‘Wantan Mee Uncle’. His quiet disposition and curt responses may come across as rude to some but he makes up for it through his noodles. Most would comment that uncle’s wantan mee is good as a whole, so there’s no pinpointing a specific aspect of this dish that stands out. Even so, people love it and are willing to wait up to 40 minutes for a plate or two!
    Tips

    Uncle has no definite opening or closing times, and can choose to take the night off without forewarning.

    Things to expect

    It’s grungier than your average hawker stall and expect a long waiting time.

    Best with

    Nothing in specific, the dish as a whole is great!

    Price

    RM5.00 to RM6.00
