Batu Pahat, Johor
Ah See Wantan Mee (since the 1940s) is the iconic Batu Pahat stall that has come to mean what’s hearty and comforting to the locals. Mention this joint to any Batu Pahatian who has ventured off to greener pastures, and you’ll hear them exclaim with fondness over what they think are the world’s best noodles.
Service is fast though you must expect to queue even if you’re here at off peak hours. The noodles are made by the proprietors themselves and these are complemented with the most scrumptious wantons, char siew and noodle sauce. It’s the perfect mix for creating old-style coffee shop memories for the family.

Smack in the middle is a humble pushcart that serves mouth-watering min cheang kueh, with freshly made batter that is cooked on the spot and served piping hot. Sink your teeth into the velvety kueh with crunchy and fragrant peanut fillings, breathe deeply and smile.
