Chinatown Seng Kee @ Jalan Sultan, KL

Simple but yummy local Chinese food in the Chinatown area....

WARNING:
Today I feel LAZY,... but still want to share this lovely non-Halal restaurant with you.
(So, it means I will be more succinct)

This restaurant is called Chinatown Seng Kee.
- Located a few doors down from the Swiss Inn Hotel.
- Also, very near Petaling Street/ Chinatown so it's a good place to bring visiting friends for local food and then (tourist-y) sightseeing/ shopping.

You can eat either on the sidewalk area (at night) or inside.
- Inside, it is basic but comfortable (air conditioned):
Inside Seng Kee ...

A famous dish here is the Siew Yoke Mein (Roasted Pork Noodles) (RM 9):
Pork! And noodles! ...

Overall, ok:
- Fairly spring-y/ bouncy wan tan mee type noodles,
- Topped with ok tasting siew yoke (meat could have been more tender + skin crispier), and
- Coated with a slightly sweet sauce.

Another famous dish is the Claypot Lou Shu Fan ("Rat’s Tail" Noodle!) (RM 8):
MORE pork! MORE noodles!...

Overall, nice:
- Lots of tasty minced pork,
- Smooth noodles,
- YUM.

Here's a closer look:
Mmmmmmm ...

*CHOMP*

Next, the Kung Poh Har Koh (Kung Poh style Mantis Prawn) (RM 16):
Yummy prawns...

Worth trying:
- Fairly thick batter but it was crispy enough,
- Prawns were meaty (although not really that big),
- Good balance of spicy and sweet kung poh sauce.

Other than that we tried the Kangkung Belacan (RM 10):
Veg is good for you ...

Not bad lah:
- Fresh vegetables with just enough "crunch",
- Fragrant, fried with hae bee (dried prawns) and a little belacan,
- Just a bit too salty.

Can you imagine that it was just me and one friend who finished all of this (and a large bottle of beer)?
(Was SO full after that. Almost fell into a food coma)

Basically it was my fault.
I over-ordered because my friend was visiting from Australia and I didn't want to let him leave without gaining at least 1kg from yums. :)


PS/ HOPE YOU HAD FUN IN KL, CHAN! *hugs*
It's always so good to see you+catch up. Can't wait till you visit again next year... Take care, man...


So, it's: Basic but comfortable "ambience", good selection of yummy local Chinese dishes at a reasonable price, opens till really late (3am) and convenient location - just a few steps away from Petaling Street BUT of course, surrounding area can be jammed and parking can be a challenge.....

I agree with your approach to hosting - no one leaves from a visit to M'sia without extra weight! :-D Nice to have met you in person over the weekend finally! We must do it again and have an actual conversation!
