Heng Kei

Special thanks to Heng Kei Homemade Wan Tan Mee & Pan Mee for extending this food review invitation.

Pasar Pulau Tikus (浮罗池滑巴刹) is a popular hawker center in the evening. One of the roadside stalls here is Heng Kei Homemade Wan Tan Mee & Pan Mee (卿记自制云吞面板面). This family business has been operating for more than 40 years.
One of Heng Kei's signature dishes is Wan Tan Mee (云吞面, RM4.50). Wonton (云吞) is the key ingredient here. These boiled dumplings are filled with minced pork and is quite delectable. Char siu (叉烧) also places a crucial role in overall taste. The thin slices of barbecued pork provide a certain degree of chewiness.
Meanwhile, homemade egg noodle is blanched briefly so that it remains springy. However, I feel that the seasoning is too sweet for me. Pickled chili is acceptable but the juiciness can be improved. Soup is provided upon request. This serving is the small size; medium and large portions are available for RM5.50 and RM6.00 respectively.
Claypot Noodle With Deep-Fried Fish & Egg (炸鱼砂煲伊面, RM6.50) is also popular at Heng Kei. The soup is prepared by stewing pork bones, anchovies, sugar cane and seasonings for nearly 3 hours. Served in a claypot, the tasty soup is compatible with chewy texture of yi mein (伊面).
Fried fish uses the flesh of snapper from Vietnam. Meanwhile, the scrumptious dumpling (水饺) is made from shrimps, pork, jicama (芒光) and carrots. Egg, choy sum (菜心), fried garlic and pork lard (猪油渣) are included in this dish too.
Heng Kei's menu also includes Curry Chicken Wan Tan Mee (咖哩鸡云吞面, RM6.00), Mee Hoon Soup With Deep-Dried Fish (炸鱼米粉清汤, RM6.50), Dry Hor Fun (干捞河粉, RM4.50) and several other noodle dishes. This family business also operates a daytime stall at New World Park from 8:00am to 6:00pm every day.
