As a dead giveaway to its name, yes, the Flying Wanton Mee did actually fly when it was made, to everyone’s surprise. The name came about as the noodles are tossed high up in the sky and may reach up to one storey high. However, it is not only for a showcase purpose or to some extend psychologically baffling the customers, but perhaps the motion is supposed to give the noodles a much springy and crispy textures than the usual. Mixed in dark soy sauce mixture after the noodles are cooked, the dish is later served in a plate proportionate to the slices of ‘char siew’ or better known as pork that are placed on top. Hence, to some the flying wanton mee is also known as flying char siew wanton. Perhaps, pigs do fly whenever wanton noodle is around. The pork will be roasted beautifully beforehand for the meat to fully absorb the seasoning and by reason of that alone, the place will be swarmed by people after a few hours of its business operation. The thinly sliced char siews made are to complement the spongy noodles. Apart from its noodles, the wanton soup that is drenched over pork dumplings is also well-known to be eaten with the mains.
Situated at a road side along Seapark Wet Market, the stall that sells the noodles will only be available in the evening after 6pm. Be sure to prepare yourself for a long line of waiting as the locals are sure keen to have the flying wanton whenever they are around area.
