Yeah, I know this place is famous for their fish porridge, but being the rebel that I am, I ordered the Pork Chee Cheong Fun instead.
I believe in being different you see (*roll eyes* ;p).
It turned out to be a good choice, not exceptional, mind you, but good nonetheless for the sheer fact that it is PORK curry.
For RM4.90 I thought the dish could do with a bit more pieces of meat but they do give a substantial portion of chee cheong fun.
Initially I didn’t want to order any since it was all pre-fried and cold, put on display on the counter for god- knows how long. But it turned out alright, and my favourite is the Chinese Donut, eaten with a sprinkle of icing sugar on top.
Yau Cha Kwai/ You Tiao (Chinese crullers ) @ RM1.00
Ham Chim Peng (plain and with red bean) @ RM1.00
Ham Chim Peng (the one with glutinous rice) @ RM1.00
Mah Kiok (the one with sesame seeds) @ RM1.00
Siew Hou Jou @ RM1.80 (this was my least favourite, it was hard and crumbly & a bit bland)
Sa Yung (The Chinese Donut) @RM1.50 (My fav! Soft and spongy, it was like a denser version of donut).
The famed Fish Porridge @ RM5.50 did not disappoint. A nice big bowl of smooth tasty gruel, served piping hot and fresh.
The ikan haruan (snakehead) is delivered fresh from their trusted supplier every morning and the stringent quality control has ensured Hon Kee of its reputation throughout the years.
The Hon Kee name spans three generations starting from their late grandfather Wong Yu Wah, who got the congee stall going 60 years ago in Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur.
Since 1949, don’t play play!
Hon Kee’s outlet at Lot10’s Hutong food hall & Damansara Uptown is managed by Eric and Herbet while Petaling St outlet is managed by their sister.
I am pleased to say that their fish porridge is as good as the one I had in Petaling St. so kudos for the quality control!
The others tried the Chicken & Century Egg porridge as well but I had to rush off for err..another food pig-out with Unka 😉
Anyhow, the soya bean here deserves a mention. It was thick, aromatic & made fresh daily.
From top right… Iced Milo (RM2.50), White Coffee (RM2.50), Chinese Tea (RM0.80) & Soya Bean (RM2.50).
Thanks again, Mr Eric Wong for the invite! I will definitely be back to try out your new menu!
