The extension was made because of customer demand” – See more at: http://www.straitstimes.com/lifestyle/food-wine/story/some-stalls-lavender-food-square-move-elsewhere-others-remain-undecided-20#sthash.OhqURHeN.dpufthe other stalls to try are the whitley road fishball noodles, kin turtle soup etc…we managed to park at the tiny carpark. there was no queue at kok kee at 4.15pm.the last time i was here was 22.3.2014. we ordered S$4 wanton mee each. this must be the only wet version in singapore i had tried. the noodles were al dente & not soggy yet not stringy.S$4 kind of expensive for that tiny amount of noodles. but good tasting was what counted, & this was like the best wanton noodles i had, better than red ring & first centre.this the second time i tried & my views had not changed. may go back before 30sep to try the whitley road fishball noodles etc. continue reading

Making our trip all the way to Lavender because of this Kok Kee Wanton Noodle, they said it was nice to eat but pricey. Maybe it was the most famous stall at Food Square, the queue was awfully long. The boss was showing a black face always.Looked at the plate, it was attractive. But don’t be deceived by its cover, the taste was only so-so for me. I had to admit, noodles were all right and bouncy. The problem was the lacking fragrant of gravy, Char siew and Dumplings were not too good also. I opted for $4.00, the smallest portion and I was quite disappointed towards this. continue reading

Patrons of this food centre would be familiar with this wonton mee stall that perpetually has a long queue. Spotting a five men queue, I simply had to join the bandwagon and succumb to being the classic 'Food Nazi' - poor customer service but supposedly good food.Kok Kee Wanton Mee (国记云吞面) - S$4/-Offered in two sizes, we went for the smaller portion which came at S$4 while the larger was S$5. To be honest, I thought that was rather exorbitant, considering the amount of food served; two wantons, six thin slices of char siew and few strands of greens.While I felt that the price was not proportionate to the serving size, the wantons were well marinated and flavourful. What scored points was the al dente noodles which were bouncy and springy. What I particularly fancied was the mildly sweet sauce that the grumpy uncle poured on the noodles which made all the difference. The char siew however was dry and while we liked that it was thinly sliced, the much desired savoury taste was sorely lacking. I would also have preferred a stronger punch with the chilli sauce, which seemed too watery for my liking.Service wise, expect almost nothing except at best a grumpy uncle who would take your order and money with haste and shout across to the busy chef inside in Cantonese. continue reading

This is one of the best wanton noodle i have tried in Singapore so far. The noodle is springy and really yummy to eat alone just with the sauce that they pour on top of it. Remember to add more chilli as it really blends well with the sauce giving the wanton noodle a nice finish.The char siew they give is also cooked really nicely. And the wonton my gosh it is really generous with its filling as most stalls tend to hold back the meat filling that they give for the wanton. Even if you have a small appetite, i guarantee you will want to eat a second plate thats how nice it is.There might be a long queue every now and then so be prepared to queue and wait for yummy food. For those big eaters out there, i suggest you do not get your hopes too high as the portion they give might be a little small.Another really nice place is at the small coffeeshop behind UOB bank at Lavender. continue reading

Full Review: www.dairycream.blogspot.sgAt our trip to Lavender Food Square, the stall with the longest queue it's none other than Kok Kee Wanton mee, which used to be located at Bugist Street. At $4, the dry wanton mee with chilli and few bite-sized dumplings is indeed a very small portion. Used to be $3 in 2006 but the smallest plate now is $4.So what is the attraction of this dish that keeps people coming? I guess it was the springy noodles, despite not being handmade. When the noodles are mixed together with the flavoursome thin light sauce, the entire dish turned out to be tasty and addictive, even without the tomato sauce! But the side ingredients like char siew and wanton dumplings are normal. Considering the price and the long waiting time, perhaps try once will do. continue reading
