Nam Seng Wanton Mee 南生云吞面

Madam Leong has been making Wanton Mee since 1958. Her first shop was next to the old National Library and I have read how her Cantonese food has been part of the growing years of many people. 
Ah Ma Leong is no longer cooking but taking orders and overseeing the running of the stall like an executive chef. At 84 this year, she is still a fit and cheerful lady who teased us for our poor Cantonese dialect.
The noodles are firm, chewy and won't clump together. Those who prefer light soy sauce based wanton mee might not be used to this because it is literally sauce-less. Yet, the noodles are miraculously flavoursome on its own despite the plain appearance. ($4)
Every strand is coated substantially with oil, saving one the need to apply any lip balm after the meal. I like the wanton dumplings as the meat is well-seasoned.
On the other hand, the highly anticipated Venison Horfun ($5) in a pool of dark brown gravy lacked the wok-hei and the hor fun is thin kway teow strips instead of flat zi-char hor fun. But the chunks of chewy, tasty venison won our hearts.  Overall, I am still glad to have finally tried this stall even though the food may not be the best in Singapore.
Simple flavours, but yet could stir a sense of indescribable warmth within me.

Extras 番外篇
After having noodles, it was dessert time at P.S. Cafe@Ann Siang Hill. It was full house, and I forgot how they managed to allocate two bar seats for us.
The Pecan Pie with Ice Cream is indeed very close to those you see on Martha Stewart Show or the classic Louisiana's style pecan pies. Served chilled (not reheated at all), the sticky brown molasses that intertwined with the nuts were very sweet and fragrant but the pecan nuts were slightly rancid. And at the price of $14++ for this, I thought I had made a rash decision to come here. Oh well~P.S. Cafe @ Ann Siang Hill
