There is this dai chow in Pudu is quite well known to many folks around the area. My colleague had been talking about it quite a while till my other friends ‘jio’ to dine at ZK Restaurant in Pudu. It is like quite a hiddem gem in the area as they are operating in a mini row of atap hawker area and a lot hidden behind (block) it.
We chose the wrong day to visit this place as it is Father’s day. The queue is crazy as normal days, we have to wait quite a while not till on that day, we waited 45 minutes for a table.
Zee Kee Restaurant currently is helm by their second generation.
For such a restaurant, their menu will give you a knock off. The extensive menu is definitely very impressive.
Their Sour Plum Juice is a must have. I love it cuz of the texture and very sour.
Claypot Pork Belly with salted fish. The fragrant of it and the caramelize ooze with the sauce is perfect. Must order.
Their Salted egg Pumpkin is also another dish not to miss out. Well coated with salted egg and fried to perfection. Do not burn your tongue as is freaking hot.
The Pork Ribs Duo caught us by suprise. The smell upon serving and the presentation of the dish in such environment, certainly beat many of other dai chow restaurant out there. Butter milk and MarMite Ribs. Both were so good that we order another plate go hit on. Meat is soft and juicy.
Hotplate Kam Heong Lala.
4 emperor veggie.
A classic dish that I like is this steam egg with century egg. The most important is the soy sauce added and also the right amount of water, temperature and time. This is perfect. Soft and smooth.
Veggie Curry as one of my friend is vegetarian. This is superb. Taste exactly like one of the best vegetarian shop in Penang. Love the creamy and hint of curry spice powder at the end. Loving it.
We were all very satisfied with the meal as it is very very affordable pricing. No wonder they are quite well known in the area and certainly one of my recommended Dai Chow Place. Perhaps one of the best dai chow in KL.
[update 19.2.2020 : I went again 2 more times with friends and family after this blog post was posted. It seems that their quality is not consistent and from 9/10 I am downgrading them to 7/10]
