ENG's Wantan Noodle Locations & Outlets 荣云吞面
ENG’s Wantan Noodle started off as a small hawker stall in the 1970s offering the typical wanton noodles at Dunman Food Centre. In 2012, an investor jointly developed the brand with its founder by opening its first restaurant in the Tanjong Katong area.
Unfortunately, its founder passed away unexpectedly due to a heart attack in 2013. Following his demise, there were internal struggles between his estate and the investor. In the end, his estate opened another similar brand under the name “ENG’S Char Siew Wantan Mee” opposite the outlet on Tanjong Katong Road.
Our review here is the brand first developed between the investor and ENG’s founder – ENG’s Wantan Noodle. The brand has now been taken over by Lao Huo Tang Group of Companies who operate other prominent brands such as: Lao Huo Tang Restaurant, Lao Huo Tang Canton, Kenny Rogers Roasters Singapore, Singapura Heritage, Old Hainan Curry Rice, My Makan Place, and Le Xin Catering.

ENG's Wantan Noodle Review (AMK Hub)
ENG’s Wantan Noodle at AMK Hub is located at Basement 2 of the mall. It is situated in the middle of numerous takeaway stalls, with a capacity about 10 or so seats in its dining area.
We arrived around evening time on a Saturday and there were still seats available in their small dining area. We then bought a promotion coupon on ShopBack for $4.50 that entitles us to two bowls of Wantan Mee for the price of one. We proceeded to order two small Dry Wantan Mee.
As there were no customers before us, we got our order fairly quickly in within 10 minutes. The bowls of noodles, soup, condiments and cutleries were nicely laid on the tray before the staff called us to collect from the counter. At first glance, the bowl of noodles looks little and does not appear to be able to fill a hungry adult man’s stomach. Also, we were surprised that we did not see any wantons. We found them after flipping the noodles over with 3 wantons were hidden below the ball of noodles.
The noodles by itself did not have any taste, though its texture was soft yet springy. The char siew was sweet, well grilled and generously offered for the small bowl of noodles we ordered (compared to the 3-4 tiny slices of a bowl of Pontian Wanton noodles). Its wantons were also savory and tasted like those at dim sum restaurants. The only pity was that they were too small.
After a few mouthfuls without any condiments, we added a little of ENG’s signature orangey chilli sauce to the noodles. It added another dimension to the noodles and tasted better with the noodles and char siew. We recommend everyone to try the chilli sauce but add little at a time as it is quite spicy.
In all, we had a good dinner at ENG’s Wantan Noodles at AMK Hub. We give its quality a 4.5/5, value-for-money 4/5 based on its original price (5/5 if based on the 1-for-1 promotional price), and service 3.5/5 for its service and dining environment.
