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. Iā€™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:)
