Picture this: thick char siew slices served with springy noodles and meaty dumplings bursting with flavour. Mmm. If this doesn’t make your mouth water, we’re afraid you can’t call yourself a local. We kid.
With the best plate of Wanton Mee in mind, let’s dive in and discover our top eight favourite Wanton Mee in Singapore!
1. Soon Kee
Home to Soon Kee Wanton Mee, Pek Kio Food Centre is easily one of the best places to dine in in Singapore. Unlike most stalls, Soon Kee goes the extra mile to roast their own char siew – that’s right, that’s where the incredible flavours come from!
Pair that with premium chilli and fresh dumplings and you have a worthy contender. Unfortunately, Soon Kee’s opening hours is as predictable as our weather. So if you’re making a trip down to Pek Kio Food Centre, be sure to drop them a message on their Facebook page to avoid disappointment.
Soon Kee Wanton Mee
Address: Pek Kio Food Centre, Block 41A, Cambridge Road #01-44
Opening hours: Daily: 5am-1.30pm, closed on Tue and Wed
2. Tanjong Rhu
Morning happiness indeed.
It may have its fair share of criticism both on and offline, but Tanjong Rhu Wanton Noodle remains as one of our favourite wanton mee picks in Singapore.
With every bite of the noodles and wanton comes a forkful of comfort that feeds our soul. Honestly, this would hands down be our Hangover Fixer Elixir in a heartbeat. Who needs Barney Stinson’s secret ingredients when we’ve got our own?

3. Dunman Road Char Siew
If we were to describe Dunman Road’s wanton noodles in one word, that word would be ‘unique’. Just look at all those colours and no, the photo isn’t photoshopped. A little filtered maybe but you get our drift. Dunman Road Char Siew’s version is a tad different and worthy of mention, nonetheless.
The wanton, char siew, and noodles are slightly above average, but the chilli is the highlight of the dish. If you don’t mind fervently wiping beads of sweat off your forehead throughout your meal, (it’s that spicy), you won’t want to miss this.

Address: Dunman Food Centre, 271 Onan Road, #02-19
Opening hours: Daily: 12pm-8.30pm, closed on Mon and Thu
Any hardcore wanton mee fan knows that Pontian has a number of outlets in the country. We reckon the one at Sembawang Shopping Centre is one of the best out of the lot. The queue’s shorter and there are plenty of seats available.
At Pontian, the fried dumplings are so well done that if you’re not careful, the edge of it might scrape your gums. We’re willing to let that slide, because they’re insanely addictive. The portion is small, but if you order a set (say, with green bean soup or tua suan), you’ll see that it fills up your tummy in a flash.
Pontian Wanton Noodles
Address: Sembawang Shopping Centre, 604 Sembawang Road, Food Junction Kitchen
Opening hours: Food court is open from 10am to 10pm daily.
5. Huang Ji
Besides Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, Maxwell Food Centre is also home to other famous delicacies, such as Huang Ji Wanton Mee. What makes Huang Ji different from its rivals is its noodles. Do you know that they’re made from spinach and tomatoes? Chewy and luscious, this is definitely a must-visit if you enjoy handmade food.
Huang Ji Wanton Mee
Address: 1 Kadayanallur Sreet, Maxwell Food Centre, Stall 29
Opening hours: Mon to Fri: 7.30am-3pm & 5pm-9pm; Sat: 7.30am-2pm
6. Kok Kee
Kok Kee packs a powerful punch. The braised sauce mingled with chunky dumplings, stretchy noodles, and soft char siew will electrify your taste buds and leave you wanting more. If the service staff weren’t so grumpy, we would have ordered a few more plates of this goodness.
Kok Kee Wanton Noodles
Address: Hoa Nam Building, 27 Foch Road, Lavender Food Hub
Opening hours: Daily: 12.30pm till sold out, closed on Wed & third Thu of the month
7. Hoe Soon
Have a low-tolerance for spicy food or prefer non-spicy dishes in general? At Hoe Soon, indulge in a delightful plate of wanton mee soaked in saccharine tomato dressing. To borrow the words of GotLines, the tomato sauce is so sweet, it could put Hershey’s out of business. Hoe Soon requires no marketing on its part. Word of mouth and good food are powerful tools to keep both new and old customers coming back for more. We recommend the mee pok dry version for this one!
Hoe Soon Wanton Mee
Address: Chong Pang Market & Food Centre, #01-158, Block 106 Yishun Ring Road
Opening hours: Closed on Wednesdays
8. Eng’s Noodles House
We spoke too soon. Eng’s chilli sauce is way more fiery than Dunman Road’s. Did you know that their chilli bottle is labelled with a warning sticker? Suffice to say, it’s the chilli sauce, excellent egg noodles, and tasty wantons that make Eng’s such a hot favourite among Singaporeans.
Eng’s Noodles House
Address: 287 Tanjong Katong Road
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 9pm, closed on alternate Mondays.
Nothing cheers us up on a gloomy day better than a great plate of wanton mee. It’s the ultimate staple food. Don’t know what to eat? Order wanton mee lor.
