Laifaba brings the taste of heritage to the present with their recreated wanton noodles, inspired by Madam Yong Soy Fan's original recipe from the 1970s when she was a street hawker. Each serving of their "traditional wanton noodles" carries a piece of history, encapsulating the heartwarming "taste of home" that pays tribute to Singapore's earliest hawker food culture. As they continue their culinary journey, Laifaba stays true to their philosophy of preserving authentic flavors and traditional cooking techniques while embracing contemporary approaches and the use of premium-quality, ethically sourced, and sustainable ingredients, promising a remarkable dining experience.

The dish tantalizes with plump Wantons, fresh Kai Lan, crispy Fried Wantons, flavorful Pork Lard, zesty Pickled Green Chilis, delightful Sweet Lava Egg, and Springy QQ Noodles, all embraced in an Umami-packed Special Gravy for a truly unforgettable taste adventure. The perfectly caramelized Char Siew, tender and well-seasoned Wantons, and the smoky sweetness of the Wanton Mee sauce create a symphony of flavors, each bite brings a delightful journey from start to finish. To complement the noodles, the Collagen Rich Pork Bones & Scallop Broth provides a rich and creamy essence, carefully boiled for over 24 hours to extract the natural sweetness of the scallops.
Completing the delectable spread are some delightful sides, such as the tantalizing Shrimp Dumplings with a medley of garlic, ginger, vinegar, and soy sauce.
