One would be surprised when they are Lavender Food Court (corner between Lavender Street and Bendemeer Road) to see a long queue at Kok Kee Wanton Noodle stall. This stall is run by an elderly couple who are able to move around the stall to cook the noodles, wanton, add sauces to the plates, add noodles, generous portions of char siew (barbecued pork), chye sim, add a final sauce from a hot pot and chilli upon request, serve the wanton noodle and collect money. Whew...
Even describing these tasks made me tired but not for this elderly couple who manages to do these tasks effortlessly and could even swapped roles when required. I am amazed at their speed and yet there was a queue of never-ending customers.
The noodles is very springly and tasty. The sauce from the hot pot could be the source of woody mushroomy and oyster based taste. It gives a lot of aroma when the wanton noodles is slurped up into the mouth and chewed upon. Most of the customers who queued requested for the "big" portion. Despite the elderly couple's hectic tasks, they remain courteous and polite when dealing with customer's request.
Overall, a tasty treat of wanton noodles. A must try if you have not tried it before.
