is there any particular restaurant(s) that you always go back whenever you’re craving for certain food? Restoran Lee Hong Kee has always been our favourite restaurant when it comes to Chinese food!
the dishes are nothing over the top but homey and tasty, wait staffs are hospitable, and location is strategic too (to us la). the new location is even better with ample parking lots! it’s previously known as Restoran LYJ. new name for new premise perhaps?
the new old Restoran Lee Hong Kee located at Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh, a Chinese settlement.
they do wedding dinners too. i’m not sure how many pax can they cater, you might have to call in to check 🙂
Chinese tea is best paired with Chinese food!
because Mami said “eh this set of tableware is nice le, take picture”.
Mami used to grumble why the hell i snap the food as everyone has to wait for me hungrily. so this has certainly come a loooong way..
simple stir-fried leaf lettuce with garlic and soy sauce.
braised tofu with veggies and black fungus.
one of my MUST-ORDER whenever i’m dining in Chinese restaurant! meat was solid, taste was great, the only complain is, the gravy was too starchy :/ i never likey gluey texture like this..
this was the first time i had this fish dish! really really fresh fish steamed in a claypot. pretty interesting. the flesh was really soft and remember to drizzle some of the gravy on! don’t fancy the smelly grasses scattered around though.
complimentary plate of fruit to end our delightful lunchy!
all these came up to slightly over RM 100 inclusive of four rice and tea, which fed four of us well, pretty reasonable we thought.
and if you are here for the first time, you might wanna try the roasted chicken which is served standing errr elegantly with its nose held high! you will be given pair of scissors and gloves and you’ll have to dissect it yourself! pretty fun!
i donno if you’ve ever heard of a song, Summer Girls by LFO, one of the line says ‘Chinese food makes me sick’. they have no taste betul. tsk.
so which’s your favourite Chinese restaurant? i would like to explore more of the KL food scene 😀
