The queue was long when we reached there even before the lunch peak hour, seemingly the most popular stall in this coffeeshop.

Soi 19 or Street 19 at Bangkok is famous with its Thai wanton mee, the Soi 19 here in Singapore has no relationship with the popular Soi 19 in Pratunam Bangkok. So, How the local Thai version fair against the big guy back in Thailand?

Thai wanton has a distinct flavour with highly emphasis of the pork lard oil to perk up the taste. Will we be able to find the same here at Soi 19?

We ordered the standard size $4 and another one with upsize $6.

Thai wanton mee usually don’t serve with chili sauce, a distinct difference to the local version of chili base seasoning sauce noodle, and that make the pale looking eggy noodle looks less appealing, the flavour of a Thai wanton mee is largely relied on the concoction sauce with the sinfully lard oil to lure the diners.

Unfortunately, the much sought after flavour for a real good Thai wanton mee was not evident at Soi 19, the sauce somehow missing or lack of the right aroma to make a bowl of enticing noodle.

Toppings were generally good with char siew, Chinese sausage, veggies and fried wanton. Noodle was cooked with Al-dente texture.
