wan tan mee


If you driving North South Highway Penang – KL bound, then you may want to consider drop by at Bidor for quick eat. Instead like Ipoh, you have to drive in about 15-20 minutes away to get your favourite food, Bidor eatery is just 5 mins away from the toll. Pun Chun Wan Tan Mee regard as one of the best wan tan mee in Bidor town., Perak

I am curious for a small town like this, what will be their local income like.  A plate of noodle quite similiar to KL pricing.

Their charsiew is different from KL and Penang. It is like in between for me.

By the look of egg tart, it does not look tempting. True enough it is “mehhhh. ”

Pun Chun’s Classic Wanton Noodles is the signature of the shop. More like a bamboo noodle version.

The meal again after we eat from another shop.

More interesting is they have this herbal duck soup is also their signature. The taste of herbal duck meat soup or Duck Soup Noodle @ RM 9 is actually quite similiar to Penang mee sua Duck meat soup. Herbal”ish taste. Not too strong as the one like Penang but good enough. Personally thought that mix with wan tan noodle is a bit weird.

Duck Meat Noodle dry @ RM 11 is their shop signature. Noodle texture is slightly fatter, not chewy as more towards the soft side. Not too sure is it over cooked? Their soy dark sauce is slightly more compare to the one in Penang. It looks dark but not as salty as what we thought. It is not too bad.

Duck meat is more in this dry duck meat wan ton noodle. That’s why slightly more expensive.

Overall, I personally think that the first shop, Restaurant Mee Wah is nicer than Pun Chun Restaurant. As my friend say, in Bidor this is the commercial version where most other interstate travelers will drop by and another shop is more for locals.  Again, it really depends on your personal taste bud as both also have its own crowd. Is this the only famous street food in Bidor, or there are others? Do share with me.

Last year I was introduce by my friend, as on the way back to KL from Penang, he suggested that we should stop by at his favourite breakfast place. I say, lets do it. Then he turn into Bidor exit. I was like here? Then heading to this Famous Wan Tan Mee at Restaurant Mee Wah in Bidor, which is just about 5-7 minutes drive away from the toll exit.

A random pick from a store next to the wan tan mee is this Yong Tau foo. nothing to shout about as the soup is quite simple and clear. The ingredient are freshly fried.

Indeed the taste of wan tan mee here is different from the one in Penang and KL. The taste is really like in between. I do find it quite interesting. Light fragrant soy, sesame and a bit of sweet end.

No doubt that the highlight will be the wan tan noodle it self. Springy and cook to perfection.

Wan tan is also quite generous. Is about 4 pcs But the price tag at RM 5, for a small town (if I remember correctly) is actually quite expensive. I thought it would be and RM 3.50 – RM 4.50. I am not too sure the living standard here but it could be the standard pricing for this town.

Order Sui Kow as additional. I think the sui kao is better.
