Toong Kwoon Chye's wanton noodles hark back to the 1930s, when the Bukit Bintang area was "entertainment central" for KL.
Their version of "kon-low" (dry) wanton noodles was atypical of KL-style wanton noodles - fine-textured egg-flour noodles flavored with dark soysauce, sesame oil & lard/pork drippings. Char-siu (BBQ pork) & poached wanton dumplings were good. But what really sets Toong Kwoon Chye's wanton noodle dish apart were their stewed Chinese shitake mushrooms - absolutely melt-in-your-mouth soft & bursting with flavors. This can only be achieved thru hours of slow-cooking.
I also tried the Hainanese chicken rice stall there. The poached chicken was tasty, but the rice was a bit hard & not as fragrant as those I'd had elsewhere in KL.
I'll have to come back for the chicken feet-mushroom wanton noodles sometime soon.
