Hi Kimmy,your gon lo wonton noodles looks so yummy. Reminds me of my recent trip back to Malaysia where I was always on the lookout for a good plate of dry wonton noodles.

Kimmy, this is Chinese style pasta hee..hee.. I am a big fan of dry wanton noodles with char siew. I used to tapau from a coffee shop nearby and always order the big packet hee..hee..

Kimmy said...

Hi Jasline, yes a a good sauce base for dry wantan noodles is the most important ingredient. Add some crispy fried pork fat and some lard, makes the noodles even much better but too much is not healthy. SabX2 Noodles in BKK is popular because of these 2 ingredients.

Hi Veronica, honestly it is yummy. I didn't know, my home cooked kon lo mee is better than the stall I used to patronise. My niece said, it is good.

Hi Phong Hong, I tapau dry wantan mee in the morning for weekend lunch when I'm lazy to cook for myself. I'll steam it for awhile before eating and the portion becomes bigger. I don't know why but the noodle is tasty. Of course, not so much 'liao'.

Kimmy , I love this kind of dish though I haven't had this noodle yet :D The fried wantan and char siu certainly adds another layer of flavor and texture to this delightful dish !

Kimmy said...

Hi Anne, definitely, the wantan and char siew is valued added to a simple dry wantan noodles cos' both are tasty, yummy condiments for wantan noodles. Don't forget that spring onions is a must for more aromatic kon lo noodles.

Hi Mui Mui, I love eating noodles, either dry or soupy. I think there are lots of them in my humble blog. Just that I can't share them again cos' I don't want to repeat posting the same recipes eventhough I do repeat cooking them, hehehe! Thanks for hosting the LTU events which is a rich resource for all of us who are 'hungry' for home-cooked food recipes.
