If we are to name the popular Wanton Mee in Singapore, besides Eng Wanton Mee and Fei Fei Wanton Mee one name that probably will pop up by many is Kok Kee Wanton Mee at Lavendar Food Square. A long queue is always spotted in front of the stall and a wait up to 10-15 minutes is inevitable.
Wanton Mee 3.8/5
So how did the Wanton Mee ($4/$5) fare? The char siew and wanton were quite average, nothing astonishing. The reason why the Kok Kee has a faithful followers for their wanton mee all these years has to be the homemade springy noodles and the special sauce that was drenched onto the noodle before servicing. The fantastic harmony of the sauce with the noodles deserved my return again.
