Honestly it does not taste fantastic. The noodle is not bouncy, the wanton has little fillings, and the charsiew is of cheap quality. But why do I still crave for it once in a (long) while?
Simply because the flavours remind me of childhood.
Particularly the wanton, it reminds me of primary school. I used to buy wantons at 10 cents a piece from this plump canteen auntie. Her wantons have barely any fillings, but I really enjoyed eating them. My mum would always tell me not to buy them. And after which, most importantly, my mum would make home made love wantons with lots of fillings! Mushrooms, prawns, pork, carrot, spring onions etc.. Yummy yums.
So the only reason I return to this place is their wantons, plus they use black sauce for the noodle. Supposedly the ‘colourless’ sauce is cantonese style.

If you like char siew, you should try the wanton mee at Tiong Bahru Market. I am not a char siew person, but the Tiong Bahru Market stall’s char siew is freaking dope! Another wanton mee worth trying is at Lavender Food Centre; I love their noodles! Both stalls have very long queue, so be prepared to wait!

I realize there is Park Lane wanton mee in Biopolis. It is located in the food court in Matrix. I tried the fried pork chop noodle today. Nothing fantastic. But the noodle and sauce does taste the same as the one at Sunshine Plaza.
