Foodies who reside in the west region of Singapore, you can now enjoy one of the best Wanton Mee in Singapore — Koung’s Wanton Mee in JEM shopping mall! This opening marks the brand’s first-ever foray into a shopping mall.
Since 1964, Koung’s Wanton Mee has been serving Singapore-style wanton mee made from scratch. Springy egg noodles, luscious wanton dumplings, charcoal roasted savoury sliced pork tossed them all together with a fragrant blend of fried chilli paste and premium dark as well as light soya sauces, then topped with Koung’s Wanton Mee’s very own fried pork lard and oil, this simple yet complexly flavoured dish is well-loved by Singaporeans and critics.
Its humble beginnings took root when it was just a pushcart then; in the late 1960s, it expanded and became a stall at Geylang Lorong 12. The stall operated for over 36 years before it moved to Geylang Lorong 13, where it stayed for 12 years. Then, it moved to its current location at 205 Sims Avenue circa 2013.

I’ve heard of Koung’s wan wan mee for so long and after almost a year, I finally got a chance to taste this legendary egg noodles. 2 uncles and 2 aunties work tirelessly in a small food stall in a local mini hawker center just to close to my loft. They have endless streams of customers waiting patiently. I ordered my cha sew noodle with black sauce and a portion of dumping hot soup, both takeaway. When I placed the order and paid, an auntie gave me back the change and my number. My number is 35 (my age) and I had to wait for more than 20 plates of wan tan mee to be distributed before my turn to take up mine. The auntie gently gave me a bag with promising fragrance of home cooked food. She told me to put the dumplings into the hot soup only when I start eating and I might need to reheat the soup. Well, it’s always delicious when it’s still hot. She smiled and waved me off “You go, girl. Enjoy your noodles and the soup” as if she was talking to her own daughter. The food didn’t fail to impress me. The egg noodle was boiled just right, still crunchy and flavored with black sauce and a hint of sesame oil. The cha sew was way better than any other places I’ve ever eaten. The dumplings, oh, the dumplings 🥟 got filled with fresh minced pork and … water chestnuts. Oh dear, it was so comforting and crunchy at the same time. I had a glorious hawker meal, really, I did. . . #hawkerfood #wantan #wantanmee #dinner #Singapore #localfood #dumplings #foodporn #homecooked #takeaway #hotmeal #eatout
