Da Jie Famous Wanton Mee
To anyone who has lived or spent time in Hong Kong, Singapore's famed wanton mee must appear quite a misnomer. That aside, the city's own version of this ancient Chinese dish is today one of the most popular fast foods available throughout Singapore and consumed in huge quantities by both locals and visitors alike.
Throughout Chinatown, and at most of the hawker centres found throughout the city, you will find stalls selling this famous dish. But some of the best are concentrated in the Kallang district, with Da Jie Famous Wanton Mee, found at the junction of
Jalan Basar with Sam Leong Road, being amongst the most renowned. It's about a five-minute walk from Farrar Park, on the North East Line and is a no frills, no fuss outlet serving its famous mee in both soup and dry style, alongside its equally famous chicken feet.
The locals seem to go for the soup version, which is tasty and filling - the hallmarks of great hawker food. Buy inside and eat under the covered tables outside.
