Wantan Mee, Section 17 Petaling Jaya (Non-Halal)

After reading Masak-Masak's post on wantan mee from K.Intan in Section 17 (Jalan 17/10), I thought I should go through my photos and post on wantan mee from this place and at another coffee shop too, both located at Sec 17.
My bro actually ordered Bak Kut Teh here. Since I'm not a fan of chunky pork, I had a taste of the soup and found it a bit diluted. I had better luck with the wantan mee; I like the wantan noodles here (it comes with small bits of crispy lard!). However I can't say the same for the char siew and wantan that came with it (just as Boo-licious concluded in her post). If I'm in the mood for some good noodles, I'll look for this place.
However if I'm in the mood for some nice wantan, I'll go over to Wah Cheong at Jalan 17/29. It's located at the same row as Caring Pharmacy and SBB Bank (CIMB).
What I like about this place is that I can opt for other things to go with my wantan noodles. They have mushroom and chicken feet, poached chicken, sui kow (meat dumplings), char siew (bbq pork) and of course the wantan. I usually order mushrooms together with shredded chicken and a large bowl of wantan to be shared by the few of us. The wantan here is nice and sweet as there are bits of carrots in it. Sweet memories again, as this was my dear ol' dad's favourite wantan too after we moved up here from KL.
Apart from the usual dry or soup noodles that one can order, they also have curry which is not too bad. I like this place not only for its wantan but also for the fact that I can have my choice of soup for the noodles.
I have not taken any photos of another wantan mee stall, located at the other corner (the corner nearer to the bank) from Wah Cheong. What's different from the rest is that they serve Spicy Wantan Noodles which is on the sweet side. I might blog on this one day (it's just that I keep going back to Wah Cheong each time I'm in this area!).

In Section 17, uou can try the wan tan mee at the corner coffee shop, same row as 7-eleven. Quite tasty. My dad told me the char siu is really roasted. Most stalls nowaday braised their char siu.

boo_licious said...

braised char siu!? Doubt that will taste nice. There's always so much nice stuff in Section 17 - can spend days and days exploring that place. Must go try the wantans as they look good.

goodness, what a great shot! i am so hungry now...... slurpy!

Kok said...

wmw,
the wanton looks so much better than the one I had back in Miri. The wanton at Miri is simply, wanton skin with bits of meat. That's it. Alamak! haha! But I think the kolomee in Miri looks better than the one you had with your wanton. Come to Sarawak and try our famous, KOLO MEE!:)

wmw said...

Precious Pea : Mmm...will try, hopefully I remember or else, it's back to Wah Cheong when I'm in that area.

Boo : Yah, quite a lot of good food, mainly noodles for me in Sec 17.

Judy : Glad my blog's been giving you ideas! Me too...like the noodles with lots of green pickled chillies.

Mei Yen : Thanks! Yah, go and try the noodles here.

kok : Yes, I love the Mee Kolo. Ha ha...now, you have got to be my guide when I go over to East Malaysia! Ha ha....

Kok said...

wmw,
You tried the Kolo Mee in East Malaysia before? Sure can. Not a problem! :D

tekko said...

still not too familiar with section 17, sure will explore more. btw, the wantan really looks good, most wantan noodle's stalls simply wrap things up and serve... sigh.

wmw said...

kok : Yah, I've been to Kuching and tried the Kolo Mee and the Sarawak Laksa! Good stuff...

tekko : Lots of coffee shops with stalls along this area. Lots of food to explore too...hee hee...

..and I thought all she had was some kinda of overbig lower thing thet call lips? o my ! hahaha !

sorry...V r still not thinking bout food

Kok said...

wmw,
wow, you've came to Sarawak before! Then you should try the rojak here if you are to come to Miri. I think it's different from those in West Malaysia although I haven't tried those in West Malaysia before.

Melting Wok said...

wmw, I'm officially looking up for u this October, you come see us in LA this summer, ya ? :)

Melting Wok said...

wmw, you come see us in LA this summer & I go see you in Oct. ok ? can't contain no more, I've to post twice to get this comment thru hahaha traffic sesat :)

wmw said...

lyrical lemongrass : Gimme a call, I can take you there! ;o)

Team Bsg : Still too much Carlsberd talking lah.... :p

kok : Mmm...I think I haven't tried the rojak before. Will take note of that the next time I do go over to E.Malaysia.

melting wok : Two comments? Ha ha ha....What made it official? The wantan??? LOL... Sure thing, if all goes as planned.

wmw said...

Hi Jason, thanks for the compliment and for dropping by...no worries, link away :o)

wmw said...

fbb : Ha ha ha...don't la like that...

jason said...

wmw: You're linked! And you know what, I like curried wantan mee too! And it's kinda difficult to find in Ipoh.. sigh

wmw said...

Jason: Thanks for the link. Can't find that in Ipoh, but can find lots of other great food in Ipoh! I'm envious of you! Ha ha....

ka..t said...

Eh, how come I missed this post??

Anyway, I lurve their sui kau. One of the best around because the filling is loaded with meat and vege. I find the wantan pales in comparison.

Sect 17 a lot of good noodles?? I'm there every single day, you must recommend more places for me to try!

wmw said...

ka..t: Yes, sui kow is good here but I don't like meaty stuff (chunky ones) so, the wantan has a filling that is just right for me. Sui Kow like you said is loaded with meat :o)
