After reviewing Kok Kee's wanton mee at Lavender Food Square, which was totally awesome, we finally found the time to make our way down to one of our favourite wanton mee stalls which we frequent.
This stall called 51 Wanton egg noodles sells quite a variety of noodles and enjoys a bustling business which can be seen from the long queue. I'm not really sure about the opening time but the noodles usually sell out by around 1 - 2pm. So be there early!
Yum yum! This is the $4 plate. Oh, I forgotten to mention that the wanton noodles come in prices of $2.50, $3.50 or $4 and some other noodles served are mushroom and shredded chicken noodles, shrimp dumpling noodles and special noodles which consist of mushrooms, shrimps, shredded chicken and a few other ingredients. When you order the $4 portion, you also get a huge bowl of soup with more wantons.
The selling point of Kok Kee's noodles is it's special sauce, sweet and good. The selling point of this stall's noodles, however, is it's chilli sauce. The chilli sauce is somehow fried differently and differs from other normal wanton mee chilli sauce and it really compliments the base sauce very well. Not really sure how to describe the taste but the chilli is very fragrant and turns the base sauce into a thick, red, spicy, concoction that is simply kick ass!
The char siew is also roasted but lean! No fatty pieces for me uh uh. Coat it with the sauce for best results ;)
The wanton is pretty average but much improved from previously. It's not too bad either. Oh, have I suggested coating it with the sauce?
Please go try the noodles. Definately one of our favourite wanton noodles of all time!

The stall is located at the upper food center (there's one on top and another at the bottom) beside Heartland Mall. In case I've left any readers puzzled where Heartland Mall is, it's just opposite Kovan MRT station and is along Tampines Road near Hougang.
(I'll try to get the address soon)
And yeah, some promotion for a Halloween party while we were there :)
