Pontian Wanton Noodles, Hougang Plaza
We were wandering through the food court at Hougang Plaza today when we came across this stall commanding quite a long line, not to mention all sorts of commercialized signage buzzing with phrases like, "the most popular handmade wanton noodles," "traditional secret recipe," and "probably the best in town, selling over 1,000 bowls per day in Malaysia." All of this suggested to me that maybe this place was overhyped, but nonetheless, I gave into curiosity and gave it a shot.
It was better than I thought it would be. The noodles were super firm and the deep fried wontons paired up very well with the mayo in the squeeze bottle. The portions were on the smaller side, but that was enough for me, lest I get sick of it too quickly.
One other thing these guys boasted about was that "kept or packed noodles won't soften," and indeed, a number of the folks in front of me were ordering a bunch of bowls to go. I guess that I wouldn't mind coming back here again.
