Chinese Herbs


Celebrate the Year of the Snake and usher in the Lunar New Year with us as Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur’s Celestial Court goes all out to tempt your eyes, satisfy your senses and whet your appetite with a variety of sumptuous delights.

The Lunar New Year is the most important date in the Chinese calendar and is an elaborate celebration in many parts of Asia. Additionally, there are 12 Chinese Zodiac signs and for the year 2013, it is the Year of the Snake. The Snake carries the meaning of malevolence, cattiness and mystery. In certain places or culture, people believe that if they found a snake in their court, the family will be delighted. Also, people like to paste the paper-cut ‘Fu’ (wealth) character in an upside down position on their doors or windows, combined with a snake twisting around a rabbit as a popular pattern to indicate wealth.

Foodies the name itself already shows you are a food lover. When it comes to some exotic food, I am a bit skeptical on certain selection of meat. Crocodile meat certainly falls into that category  I invited a few to join me for this food hunting and all of their reaction are, “Bok.. are you serious or are you pulling our leg?” my response was of course serious.

There is a new outlet that recently open in SS2, Chow Yang area that is same row as Original Nasi Kandar which is Krockies seafood. With a cute crocodile logo as their main logo and many people might thing that its chinese herbal shop or some shop that sell crocodile stuff.

Many ponders that is it legal or illegal. Well . .. . .

Croc (1)

Though the skins were harvested for leather goods, the meats were sold for consumption. It is actually sent to PJ Krocies Seafood Restaurant to promote and sell it. Krocies restaurant specialises in crocodile cuisine. When they initially started, it is pretty controversial where all the environmentalist as questioning their legality. Currently they are in the business for more than 50 years. They have farms in Sandakan, Tuaran and Langkawi. All the crocs were farm grown and fed on chickens and fish.

Croc (2)

I bet many of you heard from your parents that asthma patient can recover by taking crocodile skins? Its not just only ordinary restaurant. YOu also can buy crocodile meat and some special pre-mix ingredient ready to boil from this shop too.

Croc (3)

I will say that, with the right combination of Chinese medication will makes you recover. I am one of them. As when I was a kid, I had quite a bad asthma and my old neighbor share with us the Chinese ingredient to my mom that have to boil in 8 hours with 4 bowls of water boil to one bowl kinda of thing. After taking it daily for 3 years, I have recover from asthma back about 20 years ago.

Croc (4)

Crocodile meat is actually filled with nutrient that with different types mixture of Chinese herbs ingredient gives you different effect..

If you find that crocodile meat is too adventurous for you, then you can opt for their normal food item, with Pork, Chicken, Fish and many more available on the menu too.

The feet looks pretty scary huh? It just taste like chicken feet, soft skin that being braised for quite a while to make it jelly soft, meat is so soft that nearly plug out itself when hold up. Gravy is absolutely amazing that caught all of us out from our expectation. A perfect dish to go with rice.

Croc (21)

The best part of crocodile is this part. This soup actually need to pre-book. This is the first time I have seen such a huge pot of soup. Its not easy as chef takes alot of efford to do it. A soup that typically takes 12 hours to prepare through 3 different double-boiling processes. Combination of Chinese herbs and special skill in preparing it are required in order to bring the full potential of its nutritious value.

Croc (22)

Croc Head Soup @ RM350 

Looks exactly like a crocodile waiting for its prey on the dining table.

Croc (23)

Looks scrary? Its actually a soup filled with alot of nutritions. A clear soup that you know you will whack a few bowls. I ended up drinking 4 bowls. This huge pot can feed easily 12-14 pax. There are no salt, MSG added in.

Croc (24)

Top Grade Light Soya Sauce Pan Fried Noodle is another great dish not to be miss. A special type of noodle that they friend to perfection. Not too dry, yet accompany by a bit of sambal makes it a perfect combination.

Croc (26)

Your meal will end with a complemantary ice cream which is a special classic type of home made commercial ice cream that I have been eating since I was a kid. Something that I have been looking to hunt for long long time.

Overall, the taste of crocodile meat taste like a bit of pork and chicken (in between) to me. I am amazed on how the chef able to cook this dish so cook and pair all the taste so well.

If you are up for something different from your daily consumption, I am highly recommending this shop for you to try.

They do sell Chinese Medicine Crocodile Herb which is good for asthma especially along with frozen croc meat, croc ribs, croc tail and other parts for those who wants to cook at home.

Hung Kee Wan Tan Mee is one of a classic restaurant that have been operating for more than 40 years in the market. When you talk about such duration, not many operating restaurants are able to maintain that long in recent market. Therefore, it had been a word of the mouth thing from near and far that quite a number of people recommend me about this place or even sometimes in a conversation, they are people mentioning about it too. Even though I pass that shop daily but it did not came across my mind that I wanted to try out until last week, I ask my brother about it and he said it was so so only, but since A lot of people recommend so just try it out.

Hung Kee (2)

The classic type of kopitiam style with its marble table and wooden chairs yet if you feel that you need air condition room, it is next to this shop but with very limited place.

Hung Kee (3)

‘Kam Kat’ drink is very nice, as it was squash first then add in and created a very nice flavor in it. I had 2 glass of this.

Hung Kee (4)

My brother recommend that this is a must order dish ‘Mushroom Chicken Feet’. I cannot deny that what he recommended was good, as the chicken feet and mushroom was cook till very soft. It was flavorful that it taste a bit of Chinese herbs taste yet soak well it. I enjoy eating it.

Hung Kee (5)

You can order ‘Sui Kow’ by how many pieces you want as there is not limitation in a bowl. The taste of the soup do not have the wan tan mee feel but the filling in it quite compact yet just taste so so .

Hung Kee (7)

‘Char Siew Wan Tan Mee’ is the very normal version of it, if you order this, you must tambah order of char siew as it taste very good. Fats of char siew is 1/3 of the whole piece of meat yet it taste very nice cover with char siew sauce, soft and juicy. I did order another place with extra char siew. The noodle is not that springy as it has to be but it definately have their own ingredients for it as it is quite thin yet not bad.

Hung Kee (8)

They were pretty generous with the wantan given on each place as it have 5 pieces in each bowl.

Hung Kee (6)

‘Duck Meat Wan Tan Mee’ is not bad too me as my brother like it. To me, I do not like the duck meat as it is mild in taste yet the meat is a bit hard not juicy.

Hung Kee (9)

As I remember that most of the stalls have curry version, so I order another extra bowl to try out their ‘Curry Wan Tan Mee’. I love this very much, as the curry is spicy yet not to the extend is flaming hot(I added the curry chili given) , yet the soup base serve is at near boiling point(which I like my noodle soup base to be hot that can burn your tongue). This definitely is recommended by me~

The food there is quite okay and we did enjoy our meal. Total bill came around RM23. It is advisable that to go there a bit early on weekend as the crowd can be crazy yet the parking space is very limited, you can park directly behind the shop alley.
