Kedai Makanan Soo Kee Mee Stall, Kuala Lumpur…perfect 10 stir-fried beef kway teow

I basically eat only two things at Soo Kee and for me I really don’t need to go past that.

1. “ngau yoke hor” –     stir-fried beef kway teow with gravy
2. “sang har mien” – crispy egg noodle with large fresh water prawn

The beef slices were so tender, the moment you ate it, it would just melt to the sides of your cheeks. The noodles were perfectly cooked with the right amount of elasticity, garnished with spring onions which add colour and flavour to the dish and best of all, it has “wok hei” (the “essence imparted by a hot wok on the food – according to wikipedia). And the flavour of the thick, eggy gravy…perfect 10.

I don’t know if anyone makes it better in the general area but I don’t care because they do it for me pretty much every time.  It’s very addictive and I almost “need” to eat it everytime I visit Kuala Lumpur.

Be warned though. Everything here is crazy expensive. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Restoran Woo Lan, Kuala Lumpur…pretty decent food.

Milleniums ago, I used to enjoy the food at an old wooden zinc-roofed shed in Brickfields. One day they moved and was gone. Last week, a relative brought me to Restoran Woo Lan – a nice air-conditioned and brightly lit eatery hidden nicely in a quiet corner of Brickfields – and what’d ya know? Once lost. Now found.

The food is pretty decent. A dish a with a diff is the ginger steamed fish head aka song yee tau.  It is silver carp fish head steamed with lots of ginger. The full-of-flavour seafood curry in claypot is a definite must-have, a bit  high on the cholestrol bit but ok once in awhile (I justified to myself). Another favourite is their braised tiger skin pork. The oyster omelette is pretty cool too. Lastly, the glass noodles with fresh water prawns was good but nothing extraordinary.

This is my personal “re-discovery”of the year! This is the true truth as I still say it as it is…
