Wonton Noodles of the West Coast - 合兴面家 Hup Heng Noodle House

Wonton noodles is one of the national prized possessions of Singapore, but it isn't easy to find a good one. Certainly, it is quick to determine a plate of wonton noodles to be 'bad', but quite difficult to find one that really hits the spot perfectly. This time, I venture into hawker centres to try more local food to bring to you reviews to the side of Singapore that deserves more emphasis! A challenger to the 'best wonton noodles' - Hup Heng Noodle House is a popular stall at West Coast Market Square that enjoys the longest queue in the entire food centre, so we had to try it of course.

Manned by two older ladies who appeared friendly and frail, one of them focuses on making the wonton noodles, and the other wraps the popiah. They take a lot of pride in making their food, ensuring everything they sold is of a good quality. But precisely because of that, they are relatively slower than most other stalls.

The popiah is a vegetarian sort, with turnip, chopped peanuts and beansprouts. You can choose between spicy or non-spicy version; I chose the latter but I wished I had opted for the spicier version. The ingredients are incredibly fresh and I feel like there's a great sense of hearty homecooked food from these popiahs. The popiah skin is also considered quite thin.

The wonton noodles were pretty decent and an above average representative for the rest of the wonton noodles in Singapore, I think. The noodles are very qq and springy, without any alkaline taste. Probably because the auntie spends quite a lot of effort in rinsing the noodles before mixing in the sauce. The char siew tends towards being slightly dry but it was generally still okay, while the wontons were pretty good as well, generously packed with fragrant and chewy pork fillings. The sweet chilli is something not to be missed as well, which added a good edge to the wonton noodles. Considering it looks like it is a favourite for the residents around West Coast, I think that this deserves to be in the running for one of the better wonton noodles around.
