The Place It closed for a few years, and I’m only glad that the famous Kok Kee Wanton Mee has reopened few months ago in Lavender. The new space is in a much bigger coffee shop than its previous location, hence it is much easier to get a table. There is another stall in Jurong West called Kok Kee Wanton Mee which is run by the same family, though the Lavender branch has always feel to be the original brand for me.
The Food The Wanton Noodles is priced at S$5, though the noodle portion is quite small, I like Kok Kee for its old school flavour, and safe to say that I do not feel that it has changed much despite its closure the past few years. The noodles is springly, while the flavour is still good.
I also suggest adding a little bit of chilli to the noodles for that extra punch.
I also like to order a side plate of Fried Wanton (S$7), which is crispy and delicious. We can barely resist this each time we visit Kok Kee, and we encourage you to enjoy this with your noodles too.
Rants There is no proper closing hour, as it opens till it sells out. Lunch hour is the best bet but no doubt the busiest time.
Will I Return Again? A resounding yes. Some may dispute if it is worthy of the long wait, but at least for me, the wanton noodles is a taste I am fond of.
