Meng Heng is run by a mother and son team together with an occasional uncle helper. The stall sells only 3 dishes namely Wanton Mee, Laksa and Hokkien Mee. Unfortunately, the stall is usually very busy and do not cook Hokkien Mee during peak hours. Also, please take note that the stall sometimes closed on Tue or Thu unannounced.
The Wanton Mee from this stall is one of the best which I have eaten in Singapore. The dumpling literally melts in your mouth while the vegetarian Char Siew is made off the shelf. It is a pity that Meng Heng does not sell only the dumplings due to the limited numbers they could make daily. The dish is quite oily so it may not appeal to the health conscious. The sauce used to dress the noodles does not have much tomato ketchup which is good as excessive usage tends to overwhelm the taste of the noodles.
The Laksa from Meng Heng is another great dish. You will be getting big value for its Laksa due to its generous helping of bean sprouts and bean curds. The stall also adds in a piece of sliced vegetarian mock fish which I have never seen before. The Laksa gravy is very spicy. You can literally see the chilli oil on top of the gravy . There is a great feeling of fulfillment or shiok-ness when you finish the dish. Well done!
We strongly recommend the Wanton Mee and Laksa from Meng Heng.
Circuit Road Food Centre is quite far away from major public transport hubs. The quickest way is to take a bus from the nearby Macpherson MRT along the Circle Line or Aljunied MRT along the East-West Line. Do take note that almost all of its vegetarian hawker stalls (except for Choo Zai Zhai Vegetarian and Tang Leng Chay Vegetarian Food) open from late afternoon onwards.
