Those who had no qualms about standing in line for wanton mee will be happy to know that Chef Kin HK Wanton Noodle is expanding.

Helmed by Chan Wing Kin, a former head chef at Crystal Jade, the stall saw hour-long queues after news of its opening was splashed all over social media.

In the coming weeks, two more outlets will be added to Chan's résumé: one at Bedok, and another at Ang Mo Kio.

The chef said that he was "blown away" by the initial reception, where they sold up to over 1,000 bowls a day.

"I truly believe that good bowl of Hong Kong wanton noodles should be available to all and not just in Cantonese restaurants," he added.

Unlike Singapore-style wanton mee, the Hong Kong version is typically served in a bowl of soup and comes with prawn dumplings instead of char siew.

Customers can expect the same dishes at the new outlets: Wanton Noodles (S$5), Dumpling Noodles (S$5), and Braised Beef Brisket Noodles (S$5.50).

Old hen, pork, Jinhua ham, and dried flounder fish form the stock, which is simmered for eight hours to produce an umami broth.
