Canton-i, Orchard ION

The wanton noodle down at Canton-i (2 Orchard Turn, #03-14 ION Orchard, tel : +65 6509 8368) was not bad. Portions were kinda small though. What pleasantly surprised me was the firm and chewy texture of the noodles that felt almost like Tsim Chai Kee in Hong Kong. Almost. To compare between the two, I would have to hands down pick the latter as the better bowl for both the taste and the level of satisfaction. Portions were definitely more generous and it was less expensive. The wantons here in Canton-i might have been larger than many, filled with fresh crunchy prawns. Still not a match for the flavours and size for the king prawn wanton noodles Tsim Chai Kee. 

I ordered their Japanese sweet potato with cheese out of curiosity and those turned out to be two little dry bars of sweet potato with a textured crust at the top that had so little cheese that I couldn't taste them.
