Curation is part of their strict process as this outlet is headed by Michelin Star Chef Johnny Yu whom is also the lineal descendent cum elder-son-in-law of Mak En (s0n of Chee) that had start working with them since he was 17 years old.

According to Chef, wonton here will be much nicer compare to Hong Kong as here could get fresh seafood.

For their signature is this Sea Prawn Wonton Noodle Soup, or known as ‘Sai Yong’ (with this term as the wonton is hide under the noodle) @ RM12.90. Soup is rich in flavour as it is prepared from dried sole and pork bones.

Serve in a medium small bowl which is the tradition that hide this big 4 wonton underneath it. Skin is not thick as you can see the colour of the prawn and pretty generous in ingredient.

Noodles here are thin and springy as it is indeed different from those that is available in Klang Valley.

This is another one of their signature Noodles with Dried Prawn Roe that is serve with their noodle and prawn roe only. More for flavours and prawn roe with a little hint of saltiness that makes it well and nice. It is imported from Hong Kong too.

Beef Tendon and Brisket noodle that’s a lot more flavorful with an aromatic five-spice sauce. I find that if the beef tendon and brisket is braised slightly longer then would be perfect.

Side dish you can order some fried wonton or even sui kow.

Last we ordered their Thick Noodle with Sui Kow, as sui kow taste different as they do add in salted fish which makes it very fragrant. Then you have an option to add oyster sauce or Dry Prawn Roe for extra flavours.

I prefer the thick noodle as texture wise is better. (my own personal thought) as you can give it a try.
