Making of wan-tan (in Hokkien) or won-ton (in Cantonese) or hun-tun( in Mandarin); a type of small Chinese meat dumpling. The wan-tan wrapper is actually fresh dough, it is filled with meat, then cornstarch is used to close the wrapper, with the meat filling completely covered inside the dumpling. The filling is normally minced pork meat, whole shrimp or diced shrimp meat, mixed with finely minced ginger, onion or carrot and added with soy sauce and sesame oil.

Chulia Street
Chulia Street(牛干冬) is located between Penang Road and Pengkalan Weld. Day time, it is busy business area, but come night time it is backpacker's heaven, and street food heaven for the locals.Now even the foreign backpackers take the food here.

The popular night hawker food is located just at the junction of Love Lane, Carnarvon Street and Chulia Street. Daytime it was the place that sell hardware, and come night time it was converted into a popular hawker centre.

There are about 10 hawker stalls, and one beef wan tan stall at the coffee shop Sai Lam. The most popular street food here are wan tan mee, curry mee, and the beef wan tan mee of the stall inside Sai Lam coffee shop(which also open at day time).

There is one Hainan satay which is unique, as it is pork satay, and the sauce is not spicy peanut sauce or peanut gravy, but sweet potato sauce and peanut sauce without chilly. The sauce is not oily. It is satay, Hainan style.

There are lok-lok, koay tiew th'ng, sha hor fun, loh-bak, Chinese dumpling(bachang); there are various food varieties for everyone. However there is one advice, avoid sitting too near the road, as it is the actual street food centre, you are eating beside the main road.
