Little Wonton @ Telawi, Bangsar

Wantonly wanting wontons? Douse your dumpling desires at this ornately outfitted outlet.

Little Wonton sprouted in Telawi this month, a colorful counterpoint to the numerous new Western-skewing cafes that have invaded this stomping ground.

Fried wontons call the shots here, from savory ones stuffed with the likes of sliced crab stick, sardines & eggs to sweet varieties filled with peaches, kaya & lotus paste.

Mushrooms, onions & cream cheese make this cup of six (RM8) a can't-stop-munching addiction. Hot, fresh & crunchy, not too oily.

Peanut butter & banana wontons, their sticky-creamy centers playing off well with the crisp skin.

Little Wonton also serves slurp-worthy charcoal noodles; these RM5 bowls can be smothered in roasted sesame sauce, vinegar & garlic or tom yam soup.

We'd love to see Little Wonton hit it big; maybe they could eventually offer steamed wontons too.

Customers can fill their wonton bowls here with a free flow of carrots, cabbage & condiments.

All in all, not a shabby venue for a snack stop. Little Wonton opens daily, 10am-10pm

Little Wonton serves no pork & no liquor.

    1. Missyblurkit: i was torn between whether to order the banana-peanut butter wonton or the sweet corn-butter wonton, but the former won out in the end! :D nope, only deep-fried wontons for now. i actually prefer steamed wontons too, but i guess deep-fried ones are more suitable for takeaway and munching on for snacks =)

  2. RM5 for a cup of noodles? On Telawi 3? Sounds fab for us diners but hope they find it sustainable.

    1. Rebecca: yeah, prices here are fairly pleasant, with a set meal of six wontons, a bowl of noodles & iced lemon tea totaling RM17. they only occupy a half-lot of a shop though, so that might help with their costs =)

    1. Ulric: hope u'll enjoy the noodles! I ordered the warm one with sesame sauce cos it was a rainy evening, but I'm also tempted to try the cold one with garlic (i love garlic). And yeah, I love the concept (and the name) here, it's pretty cool :D

  4. Aw, man, they should introduce the steamed wantons soonest possible. I believe their prices are on the higher side because of the exorbitant rental.

    To the charcoal noodles, yum!

    1. Waverly: yay, another fan of steamed wontons! I think those would actually go better with the noodles than the deep-fried ones. Here's hoping the folks at Little Wonton will hear our petition soon! :D

    1. Bangsar-Babe: it's quite an eye-catching interior, right. I must commend them on doing a great job with quite a small space. And ya, conveniently located almost next to Nosh, so we could theoretically have some savory wontons and charcoal noodles here, then adjourn to nosh for dessert :D
