Deluxe Salmon & Seaweed Yee Sang with Mixed Fruits

PJ Hilton (3)

Lou Sang in Chinese Tradition is a must which signify toss of luck, health and prosperity. Not only that, that salmon fish is use to symbolize life and longevity.

The sauce are slightly sour end with sweet taste of mango, pineapple and dragon fruit. Something which is easy to start off with as most of the restaurant have different sauces for Yee Sang.

When the waiter open up the cover of the pot of Braised Baby Abalone with Dried Seafood Soup, I was like wahhhh, so rich in ingredient yet its double boil. Something to look for and the light smell of it entrails my nose that I just cant wait to get a sip of it.

PJ Hilton (7)

Look at the ingredient that they have, with huge abalone dried scallops,  fish maw, herbs and black chicken.

PJ Hilton (6)

A soup that truly come to my liking that is clear yet aromatic.

PJ Hilton (8)

Braised Sea Cucumber with Mixed Mushrooms and Sun-dried Scallops. A bowl of rice is needed for this. Top with gravy on top of it and just pairs well with broccoli was boil well not too soft and sea cucumber is soft enough.

PJ Hilton (9)

Half Half… Roast Chicken, Smoked Duck with Dragonfruit Sauce and Vegetable Crackers. Smoked duck is aromatic and very well prepare that the dragonfruit dressing just add a simple and light taste of it yet smock duck taste still there. Its a dish that shall not miss and roast chicken I just love the skin.

when I look at the menu, this dish definitely caught my attention, especially anything in cod, I would put extra attention cuz I just love cod. Deep Fried Canadian Cod with Honey Sauce comes with huge cube of fresh cod and fried well on the outer layer with cod meat is warm inside, that pairs well with the sauce. I didnt enjoy it slowly, I put in the whole cube into my mouth and let it burst with flavour.

Sauteed Fresh Sea Prawns with Wasabi Mayo and “Sakura Denbu” is nearly juicy and I just wish I have extra wasabi mayo to dip on, then it would have been another perfect dish.

By the time reach this dish we were already surrendering, it looks little but its actually very filling. Then Steamed Glutinous Rice with Sun-fried Oysters, Salted Egg Yolk and Chicken Paste was well prepare and the colour of it already attracted us. At first the girls next to me was planing come lets take one and share 3 portion ended up the take 1 each. Its good, filled with flavour of the leave and salted egg that makes the extra kick of it. Glutinous rice was well cook and steam that just makes it a perfect ending.

Deep Fried Nian Gao with Yam

Many of the modern Chinese family do not really cook at home any more for reunion dinner and surely this is one of the restaurant to consider.

If you are talking about herbal soup, definitely I will not reject you and I will be the first one to up for it. I used to come to this place alot when I was working around KL last time, as usually the reason I come here to eat is because either I am about to fall sick, or feel that there are too much heat in my body or craving for it. Keong Kee Herbal Soup is one of a well known place to many KL folks that constantly coming over to this place or they so called it “under the tree herbal soup”.

Since when I was young, I was deeply in love with herbal soup, I like it even more if bitter or stronger taste of it. If you are a herbal soup lover like me, then you must not miss this stall. A famous stall for its soup and a few of its signature mini item.

Herbal Soup

It is usually pack with people during dinner time.

Herbal Soup (3)

‘Wild Boar Curry’ is something I never miss, love its think gravy with its juicy tender wild boar meat yet the potato cook till quite soft. To mix it with a bowl of rice is just perfect.

Herbal Soup (2)

‘Boiled Chicken in Coconut’ is one of their signature soup. You can see almost every table will have this soup. A very strong Chinese herb taste on the soup, yet the soup is clear and you can taste the mixture of the herb soup and the coconut. What is the secret of being so flavourful?

Herbal Soup (5)

After I dig out the ingredient in it, it compile up nearly a bowl. This is to show you how good the taste of the soup with such ingredient in it individually.

Herbal Soup (4)

If you love something bitter sour on your tongue yet the soup is clear, ‘Ginseng Root Soup’ would be next on my recommendation list as it helps to make your body stronger too.
This stall, serve very authentic Chinese Herbal Soup and its hard to get such a good quality yet with a very reasonable price. Total for our meal including drinks is around RM25. Definitely this is in my Recommended list. Usually I park at the road side as not much parking space.

GPS Coordinates: N3 08.425 E101 42.745

*behind Times Square
(junction of Changkat Thambi Dollah n Jalan 1/77B)
From Jalan Imbi towards Times Square monorail.
– Club De Vegas on your left and turn left on the very first junction (de Vegas on left – Times Squre on right) just head till the end of the road become T-junction. Keong Kei is just on the left side.

We were out of idea of where to eat, very undecided then what they have suggested I do not like, what I suggest they don like. So ended up very cacat till went to new area to eat… Balakong~ Then Kenji mention that this place got very nice wrapped chicken. Then fast fast ask him to drive there.

When reach there and went in, I asked Kenji again, this shop can makan 1 ah… no people eh, he said you don talk so much, just wait and eat.

The very first order is ‘Yeong Tau Fu’. Its not bad but I have eaten better stalls compare to this, if their sweet sauce were a bit stronger in taste then would be good.

One of the thing that should not miss in this shop is ‘Chee Baw Gai’ (Paper Wrapped Chiken).When it was served, pass beside me, the keharum’ness of the chicken travels through my nose and instantly I was hungry.

Then they rest also ask me fast fast take picture la..hungry d..Then just snap 2 and even I cannot tahan wait to taste it. Finding difficulties to open the wrap but once open, its like just found a treasure buried inside the sand. The drumstick is flooded by the sea of thick gravy and the smell of it..damm nice!

‘Vegetable stir Fried’ Something simple and nothing to boost about.
‘Sweet and Sour Fish’ if I am not mistaken. Crispy on the outer layer yet the mild sauce had accompanied well with the fish and fish meat is soft on the inside showing the sign of fresh fish, accompanied by a bowl of rice is a perfect combination.
‘Butter Milk Pork’ is something I thought yewww.. but I ended up eating 3 pieces. A very thin layer of crispy skin and the pork was deep fried well that did not make it very hard in the inside. The sauce is nice, buttery yet taste a bit of the Thai sauce from Kentucky and eat it while its hot, the fragrance is there.

I cannot remember the pricing as I have lost the receipt but I remember 5 of us and each of us paid around RM12-13 which is quite reasonable for such a dish.

My choice of recommendation is the ‘Chee Bau Kai’ (Paper Wrapped Chicken) which is their signature dish here. If you miss this dish is you don plan to have sex after getting married.

Excited about Friday as always cuz it is WEEKEND~ so my new partner in crime the double K which is Kebbie and Karen a.k.a Kalan(a gigantic eater yet slim like hell)…ahhaha…They know that I love food so they brought me here and Karen was waiting for her friend to come. I gilar sial diver who ownes a coffee shop Kopitiam Kuan Yew
So here we are, at Taman Desa where I did not know got nice food to eat but its their territory so just go la..never ask much. So while waiting for Kalan friend so arleady hungry and start eating at the road side food. The ‘Chee Cheong Fun’. Too hungry till I forgot to capture the pic of it. It is nice, and cheap. No Complain at all.
Food rating 7.5/10 , Good ah..Not Bad~

Then they directly hantam the stall beside.


The ‘Tau Fu Far’. I tell you, the tau fu far is just so smooth like babies backside. So soft and nice. The white suger syrup is with ginger. So good for those ppl who got infected by fake N1H1. Ginger is good for those got flu. RM1.50

That guy was 20 minutes late. So head to our very original place we wanted to go. Its Sing Kee Kitchen which they said its famous for Duck Rice.

This are the temptation duck hanging around. Waiting to be slain and walap by us.
I thought they were only selling duck rice but to my surprise also this are their side order.
and here……
and here……….
and the very first order that came was the ‘Curry Chicken’. The spiciness lvl is there. Not too hot yet just nice and not to santanese. Goes perfectly well with rice and the chicken is soft and potato is ngam ngam cook.
Then the rice is good. The K&K donate their rice to me. Half each from them so that makes me makan 2 bowl of rice and from just now the chee cheong fun and tau fu far havent digest they pour everything in…Chi Sin..me not monster~
Here comes the dish of the day. The ‘Char Siew and Siew Yuk’. The char siew I would not prefer that much is it is quite meaty and not too much fats so makes it like eating pork , the sauce that goes along with it is not really nice, not the kind that I prefer and of course the Siew yuk would be better, the crust of the tip is crispy and the fats is just nice.
The main dish of the day. ‘Whole Duck’ is serve on the table. The duck skin is roast to okayness and the duck meat would not be so hard nor soft. The sauce that goes along on the duck so so but still prefer the 1 I ate in Penang.
This is another side order, which is I don really how to call this. But if you mix the sauce with curry chicken, and mix it with rice…sure do you can just walap the whole bowl of rice without any problem. The pork meat is soft, nicely cook to perfection.
Lastly that guy order ‘Caramel Pudding’ for Kalan saying that its one of the signature of the shop. Then we tried that it is so so only. The taste of caramel is not strong like onli 25% and the pudding is soft but yet I feel taste a bit weird. I do not really eat pudding but was just giving a try. Not bad I would say.
At the end of the meal I do not know what is the price of the meal cuz was paid by that Kopitiam owner. Thanks to you~ but what I was told is, a plate of normal duck rice cost aorund RM5.50-7.50 without any side dish.

Food rating 7.5/10 , Okay ah..Not Bad~

Taman Desa, Along Secret Recepi row.

Puchong is the destination that we go there for food hunting again. They told me that bring me to a kopitiam which got nice food 1. Then Okay loh..reach here restaurant 222 find that the name is quite funeee..

After I order my drink and only saw this thing Teh C Special with caramel taste. Maybe next round.
As usual I walk around in the kopitiam then walk out and saw why so many ppl queing around that area and saw this ‘Economy Rice’. Then only I saw..wow..so many dishes to choose from. So again I join the crowd.

This is what I had took for my plate, potato, meat, veggie and chicken and guess how much is it….
It is so dangerously cheap till I do not believe it. RM4.50. It is hard to find this kind of pricing already for so many dish.
With the kind of price put on it and the food honestly it is seriously nice. No regret on taking it.
Food rating 8/10 , – GoOod ah ~

Then here comes the weird dish which is Lui Cha by the look of it, it has freak mee out. What I was told is, very healthy 1. Eat lah..good for health. I was like errrr errrr…. at first it was without the soup base, was a bowl of rice full with vegie. Tried it taste alrite and they said taste even better with the soup. Then put it turns out to be like that, after eating the first bite, I feel like want to vomit. The taste of the soup totally not my bowl of soup that I want to have.
The taste of it which they blend all the vegie in there and with something something and if you didnt stir the soup at the base it is like very powdery thingy but is the blended vegie. BANNED for me. but my friend enjoying every mouth of it. Depends on individual for this. RM 6 for this if not mistaken.

Food rating 5/10 , -Okay lah..I don know how to enjoy

After eating spotted this Kuih stall which for the first time in my life I saw a kuih stall also doing promotion and was told by the Indonesian lady that they are new here that’s y having promotion.

The kuih that they sell surely looks tempting that makes me buy it. It was very cheap ‘Buy 2 Free 1’ for RM1.30. For the price and of course from my personal taste it is surely highly recommeded by me.
