Beng Kee Wanton Noodle, Whampoa Drive Makan Place

With another dash of obliviousity, I had never taken note of this particular wanton noodle stall (#01-22, Whampoa Drive Makan Place Block 91, 91 Whampoa Drive) even though it was strategically located between a couple of my favourite stalls down at Whampoa Food Centre. Speaking of which, I've just discovered that it has been renamed to Whampoa Drive Makan Place. Seriously?

This was a spinach noodle option with deep fried dumplings. What I quite liked about it was that the dumplings were fried upon order, allowing it to remain freshly crisp. On top of that, there wasn't any excessive oil that was soaked onto the skin which was stuffed generously with lean minced pork and some shrimp.  Not so big on flavors there, but it was satisfyingly meaty and crispy. The noodles were well timed in the boiler, tossed in their light sauce with chilli, didn't clump and had a decent bite. Nothing mind blowing to be found here, but just simply a decent plate good for everyday (even though the portions were a little small). Which is actually not as easy a thing to find as it sounds these days.
