Known to locals and foreigners alike as the state with both historical value and culinary variation, Malacca is no stranger to good eats scattered along its labyrinth of streets and alleys. Among the many hidden gems of Malacca, Kedai Makanan dan Minuman Soon Hoe exists as one particular gem which sports quite a delicacy when it comes to a plate of wantan mee.
In terms of their wantan mee, Kedai Makanan Dan Minuman Soon Hoe's plate of decadent home-made egg noodles are far from being merely tasty. With its noodles all springy from the blanching process -where the raw, uncooked noodles are first submerged in scalding water before being immersed in ice-cold water; the egg noodles are then soaked with a generous dose of savoury dark sauce before being garnished with slices of succulent char siew. Garnishing includes a healthy serving of blanched kai lan, and being wantan mee, for the dish to uphold its namesake, patrons can given an option to include a delectable serving of pork dumplings served in soup.
On a side -but equally important; note, should patrons wish to opt for only their dumplings, Soon Hoe is more than accommodating in that particular aspect. Depending on the amount of wantan patrons would like to consume within a single sitting, the price is charged accordingly, hence fret not if you wish to partake in only wantan, omitting the noodles altogether.
