Ipoh Best Wan Tan Mee - Buntong

If you are a fan of Wan Tan Mee, please check this out. This Wan Tan Mee stall has been existing for more than 20 years in Buntong, Ipoh. The noodle is not the ordinary / mediocre one, it's they own made Wan Tan noodle. Not only that, the dry Wan Tan Mee is nicely mixed with yummy sauce and not to forget, sprinkle with Ipoh famous bean sprout.
If you do not add the green chilies to your plate of Wan Tan Mee, it is not complete. Their green chilies are superb fresh, also their secret of tastiness.

They used to be at a corner lot at Jalan Sekolah, Buntong, now due to renovation, they temporary moved to Thye Kee Coffee Shop. They opens for dinner.
Direction: After Buntong Market, turn to Jalan Sekolah and look for the old uncle busy making noodle and possibly the most crowded shop, that it is!

This is interesting! Buntong. Have not been there maybe 20 years. Used to have a wooden bridge to cross the Pari River. Now this may sound a good proposal when I am in Ipoh.

I love won ton noodles, but prefer it just with char siew or won other trimmings.
There's one shop here, and the won ton are the size of golf balls, 7 uncut shrimps inside.
Ipoh is noted for their foods too I guess.
You have a nice day, Lee.

J2kfm, yes, the location is right after Buntong market, you will see a church, then turn to Jalan Sekolah...and yes, only open at night.

New Kid on the Blog, from Pantai Hopsital, I guess is about 25mins drive.

Worldwindows, bridge, I guess no more wonder....haha...

Duckie, I am happy to share the nice food here in Ipoh.

Uncle Lee, they serve Wan Ton, but yea, no char siew.The noodle is nice, can eat without the char siew.

Hi! Thanks Simple Girl for saying "Ipoh Best Wan Tan Mee"... just wanted to share a little about this wan tan mee shop.
The shop called "Cheong Kee" which run by a man who don't believe in mass production of the noodle although there is a businessman came from Singapore wanted to invest and make it big in the market back in late 80s. Instead, he would prefer to keep it as a small family business and serve the best to his customers. Yes, most of the process of making noodle is using machine but the mixing/beginning part is still by man because the owner believe by using hands only can actually feel the noodle is ready to move on to the next step of production. Well, his passion for the noodle and all is no words can be described as he always believe do it with your heart and keep the quality atop.

To be precise, the shop opens from 7.00pm onwards (till noodle finished or up to 12.00 midnight). As Simple Girl mentioned, the shop is under renovation now and should be ready to move back to the original shop by June 2009. Oh yeah, the shop is actually operated for more than 40 years now.

I grown up eating this wan tan mee almost every day for more than 10 years before I moved to KL. Yes, almost every single day for more than 10 years and still want more... because this is my dad's shop.

Again, thanks to Simple Girl, in fact there are some new customers comes to my dad's shop because of your blog. Thank you for sharing it here.
