Malacca - Bunga Raya Wan Tan Mee

On our first night in Malacca, we were walking along Jalan Bunga Raya looking for a place that had cockles.

We were getting hungry, and we passed an inviting looking stall selling wonton mee. A lady waiting in line assured us that it was very good, and we were sold.

It turned out to be a good choice. I don't consider myself an expert on wanton mee, but this was definitely the best version I've had so far.

There was nothing particularly notable about it, but the noodles were cooked perfectly, there was a nice amount of flavorful char shui pork, the broth was nice and savory, and the wontons were succulent and delicious.

There was a nice seating area run by a lady selling drinks (a pretty common setup). We sat at a table with a friendly couple from Singapore who had just been to the cockle place we'd been looking for and gave it the thumbs up - we ended up visiting it the next night.

While we were eating, we saw people bringing in paper-wrapped packages of some sort of mixture with chillies and eggs in it.

It turned out to be from the alley arround the corner, where a guy was making oyster omelete in a big wok. We tried oyster omelette in Taipei and really didn't like it. This version looked a lot more appealing.
