Review: Restaurant Wong Fook Kee

On the day I posted up the Harm Choy Tong (Pickled Mustard Cabbage Soup), I was secretly hoping for a bowl to warm me up on that super cold afternoon (it was raining heavily that day). Sighhh but have to wait for weekend before I could cook another pot. Fate would have it when we decided to drop by Restaurant Wong Fook Kee at Tengkat Tong Shin. Whilst ordering, they ask if we wanted any soup, hubby asked what kinda soup. When the words "harm choy ngarp" (pickled mustard cabagge and duck soup) came up, hubby quickly said yes... hahaha he's a soup lover. Later I confessed to him that I was hoping for some that afternoon and he burst out laughing.

The soup came and we both happily slurping away. Certainly warm us up! I was glad this is the boiled soup and not quick-boiled type. This one have enough "fire" (meaning have boiled for long hours). This soup has duck meat, pickled mustard cabagge, tomatoes and sour plum inside, which is quite typical Nyonya style.

Wong Fook Kee's specialty is actually their claypot mutton but we did not order any since hubby don't really fancy mutton, instead I asked for their Harm Yue Far Larm Poe which is claypot pork belly with salted fish. Sighhh I forgot to ask them to add more salted fish cause it lack of the salted fish taste. Otherwise the pork belly is quite tasty.

I asked for the 4 Heavenly King vegetable dish, known so by cooking 4 types of vegetables usually a combination of any of these four angled beans, brinjal, french beans, petai, or ladies fingers in sambal belacan. This dish is only okay but I'm not complaining since it has my fave petai inside hehe.

WFK - sei tai tien wong (the four Heavenly Kings)

The dishes and one bowl of normal sized rice plus one bowl of small rice costed RM25.70 without any drinks. As far as I remember, Restaurant Wong Fook Kee has been around for ages serving Chinese dishes for lunch and dinner. They serve "homey" kinda dishes. Give them a try!
