Lum Khee Wan Ton Mee (林记云吞面) @ Kulim, Kedah.
There's a famous Wan Ton Mee specialist in the serene town of Kulim, a short 10 minute-drive away from Bukit Mertajam (read my previous food trip of Kulim here). Lum Khee has been in business for more than a decade and has been receiving spotlights from the traditional media. Relentless queues can be seen as early as 7 am, we were there at 8 am on a Sunday morning and we had to wait for 20 minutes before our turn or perhaps, it was their cooking speed. Probably the regulars are used to the relaxed pace here and do not mind waiting... nevertheless, Lum Khee serves up a decent plate of comforting ageless delicacy that would not out of fashion. Lum Khee Wan Ton Mee can be found right opposite to the market, in the heart of Kulim, Kedah.
Lum Khee's Wan Ton Mee (Rm 4.50/ Large) sees a generous serving of crispy Pork Lards, the noodles were not as springy as we would have hoped but the fragrance of the Pork Lards was bold. We would prefer the Soy Sauce to be more saline as well but if you are looking for a plate of old-school styled Wan Ton Mee with aplenty of Pork Lards, Lum Khee is your choice.
