WANTON NOODLE – KEK LENG
This legendary noodle hails from our neighboring island of Tanjung Pinang. Its history dated back to 1950 and the 2nd generation owner himself is handling the operation in batam. I heard that this noodle is very popular among Tanjung Pinang people.
This is the stall. Located inside Long Shu Siah Kopitiam (previously Kopitiam Penuin) just next to Gideon Hotel in Penuin – Batam. It is widely known that this stall is the anchor of this coffee shop!
Just like most other Tanjung Pinang (TPI) style of noodle, you would expect some tomato and chili sauce in the mix. . Noodle texture is good and I love the fishcakes. Bbq pork (chasiu) is just normal for me.
Soup and fish ball are actually really good. A rather generous portion. Many wanton noodles in Batam, regardless of styles and origins, do not focus much on their soup. This stall is different. The soup is very fragrant and flavourful. My guess is the the minced pork used to boil soup.
One bowl is never enough here. Especially if you are into tomato sauce kinda base for wanton noodle
Can you see the abundance of tomato sauce mixed with lard? Can you feel the sinfulness? I am salivating just looking at this picture. This is good good and good. May be a little too oily for some of you but it did not bother me at all
