wantan mee is very common among chinese in malaysia~ wantan basically is similar to dumplings but smaller and the taste is heavier.
i come to penang study and i found that the wanton mee in penang and most north part is different from what i usually have in johor, the south part.
in johor~ the wanton mee u can choose whether chilies added or not~ with the owner’s special recipe chilies paste~ the mee appears red colour~ while in penang~ you cant find any wanton mee with chilies pasted added~ all black in colour with only soya sauce i think~ if you wish to have a chilies, sambal balacan or pickle green chilies is served.
talk about wanton mee~ the wanton plays important roles~ mostly the wanton we eat is just small~ full of winkles and the filling is so less and salty. haha~ sound bad~ this special wanton mee that adam recommended is just different~ their wanton is smooth, with big filling and there is a whole crunchy prawn inside every single wanton!
the gravy is special formulated too i think~ it looks heavy taste but the taste is just nice~ give you a very pleasant taste~
adam likes the way they serve you the food~ the wanton is embedded inside the mee with the gravy ~ you got to “hunt” for it! haha ~~ i think this way make the wanton can further absorb the flavor of the gravy so that it taste even nicer!
just have a chance to go there and try it by yourself!
当我来到槟城读书时我发现，南马和北马的云吞面有很大不同~ 在南马，通常我们会加辣椒酱或所谓“甜酱” ，面看起来是红色的！ 北马就不同了！没有加入辣酱或甜酱。如果你要点辣的，档主会给你来 sambal balacan或是腌制的青辣椒~ 一开始我是觉得蛮奇怪的~ 尤其配上sambal~
