Back in the 1960s, every noodle stall from fishball noodles to wanton noodles had a different rhythm to hit on bamboo sticks to attract the attention of customers. This hitting created a “Ko Ko” sound and therefore the birth of ‘Ah Tee Ko Ko Mee’.
The Ko Ko Noodles’ ($3.00/$3.50) highlight was the char siew and sauce. I could taste a touch of ketchup other than the usual combination of chilli sauce, vinegar and soya sauce. The ketchup complimented well with the chilli sauce and gave the noodles a more layered savour.
