Day trip to Pontian

We ventured out to Pontian with House of Lim. All I ever know about Pontian is the wantan noodles. So what we must try is also that when we reach the small town.
We went in through tuas checkpoint which will then take another hour to reach. Traffic was pretty clear.

We headed to Kheng Guan Siong first, hoping to grab breakfast and coffee before going to the fish market. The fish market is just minutes walk away from the coffee shop. When we reached the action has already started. From another blog I know that it will start around 11 am but by the time we reach its around 11.30am. So we decided to skip the breakfast.

Without bargaining I bought 2 types of fish at RM23/kg and RM30/kg, and prawns at RM48/kg. Grabbed and go. Some of the stalls only sell to wholesalers so we settled at a retail kind of stall who will scale, gut and prepare the dishes for us.
Since we decided not to have breakfast we headed straight to Sin Kee Wantan Mee. It is a secretive place as the stall is hidden in the coffee shop.  The whole coffee shop doesn’t look open and in fact looked like it is closing down. We reached around 12.30pm and were told that the stall owner starts around 1ish. So we decided to have some coffee while waiting. Gradually more and more people started walking in.

The long awaited Sin Kee Wantan noodles. It’s very tomato based, so if you like tomato sauce this will be a hit for you.

Next comes the durian session. We stopped by Uncle Lim Durian stall which is visited by many Singaporeans. As we do not know the place well, I am reluctant to stop by other stalls to try. Durians were just ok but we were given a tour by the assistant of Uncle Lim. He showed us around his nursery of mangosteens, durians, rambutans and a bird nest factory.

Me with my 3 month old Zoe.

Overall it was a good trip given the company. And the kids had fun. All was worth it. The fishes and prawns I bought were very fresh too after a whole day in the car.

I am missing Melaka.
