Chan Weng Kee, SS2

Amy was craving for Ho Weng Kee some months back- and we decided to pop over to SS2. But to our surprise, Ho Weng Kee was no longer there, but taken over by another wantan mee shop called Chan Weng Kee.
With her cravings doused, we went somewhere else for lunch instead...
One fine day recently, Amy suggested to try Chan Weng Kee- she was craving for wantan mee. With or without Ho Weng Kee.
The shop was still packed with patrons, a rather good sign that the wantan mee should still be good..
Amy and WF had the wantan mee with char siew and pork wantan..
The wantan noodles were springy and had a firm bite to it. The char siew and wantan was quite nice- the char siew was not melt in mouth though, but chunky, solid ones. Still quite tasty nonetheless. I prefer Ho Weng Kee's sauce base though, something was lacking in Chan Weng Kee's, making it less aromatic.
I had the beef brisket noodles..
The wantan noodles had the same springy consistency, while the beef was tender to the bite. The brisket was ok though I felt that the beef tendon was overcooked- it was sticky and soft, rather that the slightly bouncy texture that I prefer. I find the star anise flavour over powering too, dominating the beef and sauce flavours.
We shared a plate of roast pork and char siew..
For me, the roast pork was better than the char siew, the skin was crackling, the meat was firm yet had the subtle flavours from the spiced marination.
Overall, CWK's noodles were definitely decent, but I still prefer HWK's.
Chan Weng Kee is located at No 32, Jalan SS2/66, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

that's a whole load of meat for a simple meal. :)
can see that the roast pork was almost uniformed in size, colors and thickness. meticulous preparation. how much did that plate cost?
