'Fei Fei Wanton' is a nostalgic name to me as I grew up eating it in Joo Chiat.  The push-cart stall was set up by the grandfather who was a family friend of my paternal grandparents.  The stall was operated by father and daughter in the early days and was eventually passed down to the daughter and grandsons when he passed away.   

The business was initially operated at the back of a eating house under a big tent which was hot and stuffy in Joo Chiat Walk, but has since shifted across the road at a coffee shop.

The noodles are hand-made which lack the bounciness and bite that I find as compared to the old days

There are countable pieces of wantons, char-siew and vegetables in the noodles.  Overall the noodles is not palatable and the chilly sauce lacks the kick and hotness.  The noodles is really not up  to the mark.   I find the noodles at some of the franchise branches taste better.

The yong tau-fu are 'hakka' version, deep fried and eaten with sour-hot sauce.  The fish meat is bouncy and tasty & goes well with the sauce.  $4 for a plate of more than 10 different types is worth the choice.
