If Popeye was Chinese, I’m sure he’d love his noodles made out of spinach too! I’ve lived in Whampoa for almost 15 years yet i’ve let his awesome dish slip right under my nose all this while!
I don’t usually eat Wanton Mee, mainly because of the many bad memories i’ve fostered over the years from eating Wanton Mee in school. Every time i ate Wanton Mee in school, i’d end up feeling very sick and making a dash to the toilet. Ah, but i have decided to be adventurous and step out my comfort zones to eat Wanton Mee again. And i’m glad that i started off on the right foot by eating at Beng Kee Wanton Noodle.
Perhaps the colour of Wanton noodles still intimidated me, so i decided to go for a green version (: The Spinach noodles with Dumplings were better than i had expected it to be. The green noodles had not the slightest taste of spinach despite the name. Only the colour of the noodle gave the semblance that it might have actually sprouted straight from a plant. Other than that, i really enjoyed the QQ texture (springy texture) of the noodles. The dumplings were really good too! I had expected a measly portion of filling in each dumpling but they turned out to be fatter, each with a small prawn inside. They were like little golden popeye biceps! Haha!
I moved on to try the normal Wanton Noodles. They’re pretty ordinary though. The char siew wasn’t fantastic and so was the wanton. I think it’d be a wiser decision to request for a switch of wanton for the dumplings instead.
Overall, the Spinach Noodles was the real highlight of the stall. A simple and novel dish that’s perfect for anyone looking for a light breakfast.
