The legendary Kok Kee Wanton Mee (国记云吞面) has finally made its return after a three-month delay.

Known for its springy noodles and lard-based sauce, Kok Kee Wanton Mee is rather popular among Singaporeans.

So much so that one person offered S$2 million for their recipe before.

The food stall announced on Facebook two weeks ago that it was reopening on June 12, 2019, at 30 Foch Road in Jalan Besar.

Previously, the stall was operated by five siblings at Hoa Nam Building nearby. They closed down their business two years ago as age was catching up.

It seemed, however, that the elder cooks eventually got bored of the retirement life and appear to have decided to make a comeback.

The eldest one is almost 80 years old.

Their Facebook page also shows updated photos of the lady boss and a couple of the other original cooks in action on the stall’s first day of business on Wednesday:

The price of each plate of wanton mee remains at S$5.
