Wantan Mee @ 71 Lembah Permai, Tanjung Bungah, Penang

Few days ago, hubby saw a post about this wantan mee in facebook and reckon that we shall give it a try. This shop was operating in a house and the uncle told us that his operating hour is from 7am till 11pm. And the plate of normal wantan mee is RM3 not longer RM2.50. However, the wantan itself is still RM0.10/piece.
It is located at No. 71, Lembah Permai, Tanjung Bungah, Penang. (Slightly opposite to Tenby International School)
Having a chat with uncle and he told us that if we would like to buy some wantan for Chinese New Year can come and buy from him. He will be selling 3 types of wantan - frozen wantan, deep fried wantan and fresh wantan. According to the uncle, price of wantan will be remain unchanged if order for Chinese New Year.
Wantan Mee (Big Served) - RM4
Hubby ordered for big serve. We were surprised to see that it is really big in size. The noodles are a bit different from others. You can see from the picture. 
Wantan Mee - RM3 (Normal Served)
Wantan Soup
Deep Fried Wantan
It cost just RM0.10/pc of wantan. Uncle told us must go with the sauce. And told us that the sauce is same with the wantan noodles.

FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict

I personally quite like the noodles as it is very springy. In term of the wantan, I still preferred the deep fried wantan over the soup wantan.

Ah Lai Cafe @ Churtch Street Ghaut, Penang.

I have been patronizing this shop for quiet sometime. I remembered the first time was on one of the Saturday morning. 
This shop is not hard to find. It just next to the DSOP shop. Although, it is just a small shop but the business is very good. All you need to do is find a seat and sit down and the owner will come taking orders from you.

Curry Instant Noodles + Cheese
You must be wondering what so special about this curry instant noodles right? This curry instant noodles came with some cabbage and sausage and egg topped with chesse. Off course you can opt for no cheese too. Including cheese is something different. 
They also served Tom Yam and Normal soup base.
