Restaurant in Bandar Puteri is mushrooming like crazy, with invites from uLi that I get a chance to come and dine one of the shop in the area which is a Hakka Restaurant located in the heart of the town. The restaurant was very easily located when u see a big building easy pharmax then it’s nearby.
All their specialities are on the wall. If you do not like to look at the menu, then you can just pin point anything on the wall.
The history of it
One of the thing that impress me in this restaurant is this small little shop, that was just began operation about 5 months ago already got so much to bag for, by coming out in the newspaper, and also already got featured in Ho Chiak!
While the night is still young, we kick start with one of the very traditional dish ‘Hakka Abacus Seeds (???)’ @ RM12(S) RM24(B)
‘Hakka Salted Chicken (????)’ @ RM13(S) RM25(B), something that look simple but yet very flavourful. I like the soup base of it, which is a bit gingery, salty yet its feels like clear in taste.
‘Spring Roll (??)’ @ RM12(S) RM24(B) that dip in chili sauce, thumbs up.
To hunt for nice food is always not easy, especially with home cook and traditional style, it was not until recently we discover a place that cook good Teow Chew and Hakka food which is located at SS14, a place which I went pretty often for the nasi lemak during my college days.
This restaurant is more than 20 years old which first the family run its business on southern Johore and until few years back one of the siblings decided to open one branch in the urban city area that run similar menu. Their signature dish to look for is more on soup and porridge.
Newspaper had it all with their authentic style in taste.
The price in this restaurant I would say reasonable or cheap and the portion is huge.
‘Lobak (??) @RM6 (S) RM14 (M) RM20 (B)
‘Button-shaped yam balls – Abacus (?????)’ that I enjoy eating, its chewy and fried with ‘wok hei’ that end with a bit dry on taste. @RM8
‘Soon Kueh (????)’ stuff with dried shrimps, bamboo shoots, fungus, and minced meat. @RM2.20/piece’
‘Braised Pork with Black Fungus (???) @RM9′
If you love, one of the traditional dish, that has to add on vinegar to cook in it, strong taste of vinegar that boiled along with pork till it is soft and juicy. Just as the way I like it. ‘Black Vineger Trotter (???)’ @RM9 ‘
‘Stewed Pork with yam (????)‘ that the yam is steam till very soft and eat it along with a bowl of yam rice is perfect. RM13 ‘
‘Braised Duck Meat (?????)’ @RM9 is something that I enjoy that on that meal provided with a plate of white rice, I can just finish it.
‘Yam Rice (???)’ is aromatic with some dry shrimps yam chunks and its a bit dry as I like it where add on some sauce of the dish it just goes well. @RM1.20(S) RM2(B). ‘
‘Braised Duck Porridge (????) @RM8‘ that is my first encounter, as I do normally do take Duck Porridge when I was back in Penang but not here, taste pretty awesome, that is not salty, and the porridge cook just nice that the rice is not overcook, this is one of the signature item in Tien Kee. Give it a try.
I just love their homemade special ginger sauce. Specially marinated with some vinegar and it goes very well with porridge especially those who are sick or got flu. I took 2 souce plate of it.
If you are looking for something mild in taste, then you should go for ‘Pomfret Soup with Vege (????) @RM16. Sweet mild soup taste cook with vegetable and the fish is very fresh, soft and slices which had been cut perfectly for cooking purpose.
‘Pomfret Fish Mee Suah (?????) @RM16′ is another option you can go for.
If you wanted something spicy or sour ‘Sze Chuan Noodles (???) @RM8.50′ is one of the recommended choice as the taste had change to suit the local taste with added on some of their cooking style. Simple yet delicious~
