In Chinatown or known as Petaling Street in KL, is a place that used to be famous for a lot of nice eatery. However, most of them had turn into commercialize and taste had change over the years including China Town Seng Kee. Used to be one of a famous dinner place in Petaling Street or hotspot for after clubbing.
Seng Kee had been operating in this area for easily around 20-25 years.
after drinking at a hidden bar nearby, we decided to drop by this place to check em out again on the food as they are famous for a few dishes.
The original founder of the place is left with this ah ma, where she sits in the shop most of the time. She build this place together with her husband. I forgot who was the chef, is either relative or son.
Claypot lou shu fan is one of their signature. flood with sea of mince pork and of course must topped with an egg. (this is upon request where many of their customers prefer not to have an egg) whyyyy????
Another great dish that you should not miss is this Stir Fried Intestine which is one of their signature dish.. Fried with wok hei and it is punch with flavor on every bite. Chewy yet a bit of heat at the end as it is stir fried with chili padi.
This is one of their famous dish. The Siew Yoke Mee (Roasted Pork Noodles). It is like a must order dish. The noodle is alright and Siew Yoke is not too bad. I still remember that the noodle sauce used to be darker and their siew yuk is more caramelize which is on the stickier side.
The Kl version of Hokkien noodle is not too bad. Thick noodle which is not overcook and, cook to abit thick in sauce. As above, its quite like their must order item when you come to this stall.
Indeed the quality of cooking and food had dropped. But still decent enough to pay a visit whenever you feel like it. It is still here than better its close down. Support some local businesses to make them sustain is perfect.
If you are a traveler, I think it is worth to pay a visit here if you want some local stir fried street food in KL. Just my own opinion.
