This hawker dish has always been (and still is) a breakfast staple to many Malaysians. Springy noodles in delicious chicken broth or tossed in dark soy sauce (according to your preference) and paired up with succulent and juicy dumplings – this dish definitely tops our list of comfort food. Add a side of tender char siew (bbq pork) for that extra sweetness and you can’t resist this temptation. Here, we have a list of our top 10 best Wan Tan Mee In KL that you’re never going to get enough of (more,please!)
10 Best Wantan Mee In KL That You Can Never Get Enough Of
1. Koon Kee Wan Tan Mee
Passed down from generation to generation, Koon Kee certainly tops the list, especially in our parents’ heart. It looks like any other hawker stall but the flavours definitely outshine the rest. Everyone is crazy about their wan tan mee despite the higher price and smaller portion but that’s how you know this eatery hits the spot. If you’re not a fan of bbq pork, you can settle for their chicken feet which is just as good!
Address : 95, Jalan Hang Lekir, City Centre, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Operating Hours: 10am-10pm. Opens daily.
2. Yulek Wan Tan Mee
Claimed by many as one of the BEST wan tan mee in KL – if you’ve tried it, you would agree it certainly lives up to the hype. Despite being operated for decades, they are still consistent when it comes to flavours. Smooth and light noodles flavoured by dark soy sauce adds with a generous amount of chunk char siew, the crowds are loving it. The only gripe is that parking can be a hassle and you have to wait a little bit of time for your food but they are worth the wait!
Address: 19, Lorong Durian, Taman Cheras, 56100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Operating Hours: Mon-Sun (except Tues) 7:30am-4pm, Tues (Closed)
3. Toong Kwoon Chye Wan Tan Mee
One of patrons’ longtime favourite – Toong Kwoon Chye started since the 1920s and currently has been passed down to the 4th generation (what?!) Carrying on the family’s business, this nostalgic wantan mee stall still bustles with a crowd every day and their must try is definitely the curry chicken wantan mee. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t afford to miss out on their char siew too!
Address: 9, Bukit Bintang Street, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur
Operating Hours: 7:30am-7:30pm. Opens daily.
4. Wan Tan Mee Sungai Besi
This place caters the late crowds who are still up at wee hours as it opens till 3 in the morning – so, I guess we’ve got your supper spot covered huh? They are known for their extensive sides such as sui gow, pork trotter and everyone’s personal favourite, curry wild board! It is situated right beside the main road so it’s easy to spot and there are plenty of parking spaces so you don’t have to worry about parking at all (how convenient).
Address: 304, 302, Jalan Sungai Besi, 57100 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur

5. Yip Kee Cafe Restaurant
Another wan tan mee claimed to be one of the best in town. Instead of classic char siew, they have a variety of dishes for you to choose from. You can opt for beef, chicken feet, braised mushroom and more. With such a wide selection, it will is a party for your taste buds!
Address : 18, Jalan Ambong Kiri Satu, Kepong Baru, 52100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Operating Hours: Mon-Sun (except Thurs) 7am-3pm, Thurs (Closed)
6. Kek Suk Wan Tan Mee 基叔云吞麵
Homemade wantan mee made by a 92 year old uncle call Uncle Kei (hence, the name). Many self-proclaimed foodies said they have tried the best wan tan mee in Penang, but Uncle Kei’s certainly comes a close second. Similar to Penang, this pudu gem right here uses sauces which are not too dark and thick. Their famous char siew got the crowd swarming in the early morning and if you don’t want to wait excessively long, remember to reach as early as possible.
Address: Jalan Brunei, Pudu, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Operating Hours : Tues – Sun 7:30am – 1pm
7. Meng Kee Char Siew Wan Tan Mee
We can see a pattern here – juicy char siew is everyone’s go- to when it comes to wan tan mee. But, who doesn’t love juicy and tender meat with a hint of sweetness? Perfectly charred char siew and dry mee is a big hit here. The meat is lean and not too fat plus you don’t have to worry about the noodles being too soggy either. The portion can be a little small but that just means you gotta savour every bite!
Address: 48, Jalan Kuchai Maju 6, Kuchai Entrepreneurs Park, 58200 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Operating Hours: Mon 7am-6pm, Tues-Fri 7am – 10:30pm, Sat-Sun 7am – 9:30pm
8. Restaurant Berjaya (Halal)
One of the rare places that sell halal wan tan mee – we want our fellow Muslim foodies to share the joy of savouring this noodle treat too. Known for curry mee, nasi padang and wantan mee(duh!), this restaurant welcomes all ethnicity and patrons always leave ‘wan-ting’ more. They serve heavenly wan tan mee with shredded chicken and we are going to be honest here, it’s not the cheapest. This is because it is situated in Bangsar(land of pricey food), we will say the prices are rather similar to nearby restaurants.
Address : 44, Jalan Telawi, Bangsar, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur (Halal)
Operating Hours: Tues-Sun 7:30am – 5pm
9. Restoran 168 Wan Tan Mee & Curry Mee
Loved by locals for their wantan mee and curry mee, their fresh prawn dumplings are a crowd pleaser and are definitely to-die-for. But hey, you’ll be surprised with the quality of their char siew too and they do not disappoint. Baked on charcoal every single morning, these three-layer pork is as fresh as it gets! Some argue that they can never get enough of the juicy pork but why get one when you can get a lot more……no one’s judging. Eat to your heart’s content!
Address : 2-2, Jalan Brunei Utara,, Off Jalan Pudu,, Pudu, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur
Operating hours : Tues – Sun 7am -4pm
10. BBQ Restaurant 合记港式烧腊面饭店
They serve one of the best chicken rice in town but their wan tan mee is -hmm, just as yummy! Char siew is amazingly crispy and you can never go wrong with delicious thin noodles. This dish will certainly fill up your tummy so if you find yourself in the area, get yourself a plate of this yummy goodness.
Address : 85, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Titiwangsa Sentral, 51200 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
