Wow yknow I didn’t expect to like this because I saw pics of their wanton mee online, and this is the thicker type of wanton mee that I don’t rly like. But their sauce is sooo nice that I am able to accept the noodles! there’s a slight alkaline taste still tho. The highlight is the sauce, which is v fragrant and yummy! it’s a mix of lard oil and soya sauce (we think). The charsiew is decent, it’s lean and pretty thin - don’t expect roasted meat stall standard, but it’s not dry by any means! Dumplings were ok only, not memorable but there was adequate filling!

Finally no queue. I came for the noodles and seasoning and they didn't disappoint. So flavourful. Look at how proud they are of their chilli. Wantons were plump but char siew unmemorable. Soup was rather icky.

How is this wanton noodle recipe taste like that worth $2.1 million dollar, after it has acquired by Jumbo Group.

For $5, you can go for the most signature one. I could say unfortunately the portion wasn’t big enough for me. And it is more wet version as compared to many.

I admit the noodle itself was good and the taste also nice. But sadly the char siew itself was down point.

Kok Kee Wanton Mee is one of the food that defines my childhood, as my family used to go to the now-defunct Lavender Food Square to have it for supper every now and then when I was kid. I was quite sad when Lavender Food Square was demolished in 2014, but thankfully Kok Kee Wanton Mee reopened in a coffeeshop next to its original location last year!

The Wanton Noodles ($5) is quite pricey given that the portion is not very big and it comes with 2 wantons only, but Kok Kee has always been on the pricier side and that did not hinder the popularity of the old-school wanton mee over the years. Having said that, the wantons have since grown bigger as compared to the past, which is nice. The noodles are still pretty much the way I remember them - a delicate balance between soft and springy. The sweet and lardy sauce goes well with the noodles and a dash of chilli sauce, but I find it too salty when I last visited. I’m not sure if the recipe has been tweaked or is this a once-off thing. Nonetheless, this is still a pretty decent plate of wanton mee and definitely a nostalgic trip down memory lane for me:)

I’m quite surprised by the sweetness of their wanton mee sauce. At first glance it seems messy, and looks very ordinary. But don’t get fooled by the appearance. It’s pretty good, especially the soup was really well brew with chicken bones.

Downside is its small portion, and quite expensive $5. No medium or bigger size option. You would end up either order 2 portions or add on extra wanton to get full.

I had this the first time when it was located at Lavender Food Square. I was wow-ed by the plate of messy goodness. I don’t usually have wanton mee but the sweet sauce made it addictive and satisfying. After relocating to hoe nam building it still tastes the same, being in the long queue is normal but worth waiting.

Today they are located at 30 Foch Road, the portion got smaller and no add ons of noodles was allowed which took me aback. The noodle sauce still had a little sweetness, the only reminiscent of how it used to be. I added chili so it is more appetising, my friend who didn’t said its leaning towards more salty than sweet. Wanton soup was overly salty though, would suggest to go for the fried wanton instead 🥟

Opens from 12pm till sold out, we went after 1pm on a Saturday and queue wasn’t too long. I will give it a try again when I can to gauge if the standard has really been compromised!
