Best Wan Tan Mee in Penang

  1. Weng Kei Wantan Mee at Carnarvon Street

    Weng Kei has been around for quite a few years. We chanced upon this place when we were strolling around Carnarvon street. This is by far one of the best roasted pork you can find in Penang. The charsiew is super tender and juicy. Their wantan mee (which is custom made according their recipes) is a heaven made match for the roasted meats. We can't remember how many times we find ourselve coming back to this place over and over for breakfast.

  2. Wan Tan Mee House at Pulau Tikus

    This Wantan Mee House located at Pulau Tikus (opposite of police station) serves their wantan mee just like what you'd normally get; with an additional dressing of starchy egg-gravy on your noodles. If you like spicy foods, do request for their sambal. We like how well it compliments the noodles here.

    Editor's note: The deep fried wantan is one of the highlight that you must try.
