Little Wonton @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail

Price Range : Mid-range
Cuisine : Asian Fusion  
Catphobia-Friendly? : Yep!

Any lychee fans here? How about garlic? Vinegar?

How about this: any fans of vinegar, garlic, and lychee co-existing harmoniously in one bowl? Read on to get to know this cute eatery's eclectic F&B offerings. 

 We’ve just gone to check out Little Wonton’s adorably eclectic menu a few nights back and left with happy, goofy grins at the end of dinner.

The first-floor restaurant in the same row as Artisan and Sid’s on Lorong Rahim Kajai is yet another interesting addition to Taman Tun’s food scene. Feel yourself being transported back in time with each stair up to the restaurant, with the warm sepia-like lighting and display of vintage memorabilia at the entrance.

Step through the beautiful blue doors and check out the restaurant’s neatly divided menu: Wontons, Noodles, Drinks. Yay for straight-forward menus!

Loving the old school charm! 

The air-fried wontons (no deep-fryer-induced guilt here!) come in both savoury and sweet, priced at RM7.90 for 6 pieces. The Mushroom Onion Cheese is the crowd favourite here; these were so good we couldn’t resist a second helping of these unassuming little treats. Satisfyingly crisp on the outside and comfortingly gooey on the inside, just the way we like it. The fact that they are air-fried also means they are light and not too oily. Perfect! For a less creamy version, the Mushroom Tofu flavour is a yummy alternative too!

How’s about some Hawaiian Chicken, wonton version? Then you’re gonna wanna go with the Chili Chicken Pineapple.

The Thai Seafood wontons complemented our dinner selections well.

For desserts wontons, we tried out the Banana Kaya but were not too fond of it. The banana was separate from the kaya, unfortunately, and the kaya wasn't very kaya-y but tasted closer to lotus paste.

Nooow, on to our favourite item of the night: Vinegar Garlic Lychee Charcoal Noodles (RM6.90 per bowl – same price for all noodles). Who would’ve thought of such an interesting combination of flavours? You’ve got the tartness of the vinegar contrasting well with the subtle sweetness of the lychee, and the light gravy is beautifully absorbed by the slinky strands of the delicious charcoal noodles.

Totally overdosed on the mind-blowing sambal!

Another favourite of ours in the noodles category is the Roasted Sesame. Smoky, creamy and slightly sweet, the sauce goes amazingly well with the noodles.

Keep it traditional with the Curry Laksa flavour, made with fresh milk to keep it light. Absolutely heart-warming, and especially enjoyable on a cold, rainy day.

We wouldn’t quite recommend the Green Curry though, it’s remarkably oily and left us feeling quite pening after the bowlful.

No to the Mushroom Sauce one either, due to its non-too-exciting one-dimensional sauce that does not go very well with the noodles.

Anybody else tried this adorable little makan place? Which wonton flavour is your fave? =)

The severe lack of available parking spots, whether day or night, is the biggest annoyance about coming to this area. If the Kajai area is super packed and you don’t mind a 5-minute walk, try looking for spots nearer towards the Apollo Medical Centre area on Aminuddin Baki.
