Jurong West 505 market have a brunch(505 Jurong West Street 52, Singapore 640505). It's right opposite the multi story carpark. It is operated by Kok Kee's nephew/niece as the father(younger brother of Kok Kee) is semi-retired.

They are cheaper @ $3/$4 a plate. The $4 portion is more then Kok Kee's $5 portion. Taste wise, I prefer this store. Kok Kee's version is too "soupy" for me while their version is just nice.

Do note that both of their stores do not have green chillis

At the previous food center before they moved, they used to serve the noodles in plates. They used less oil and serving on the plate allowed the noodles to mix more evenly with the oil.

At the new Hoa Nam Building, they serve the noodles in bowls. This causes the oil and soup to concentrate at the bottom half of the bowl. Half of the noodles are soaked in oil and soup too long. The taste is not as good now especially since they use more oil and soup than before.

They have retired due to health issues. Heard this from the cleaner uncle at the coffee shop where they shifted to. The current wanton noodle which took over the unit is not related at all and likely trying to make use of kok kee popularity to make a quick one. Unfortunately, in my opinion cannot make it at all. Save your stomach and money for the pig organ soup next door.

IMO the wanton noodles at the other side of the market is nicer. Beside the super long queue fish soup

That's right. They've retired. They stay at the same area as me.
