Soo Kee Restaurant, Medan Imbi, Kuala Lumpur

For beef kuey teow lovers, this place is famous as THE "ngau yoke hor fan" place in Jalan Imbi.

Even Curtis Stone (Yes, I want to take him home to be my chef!) has been here, by the looks of a photo on the wall. That's the lady boss beside him.

Pork satay. This was a hit with bro-in-law's girlfriend.

Me, I was more inclined toward the paper chicken, which cost RM4.50/piece. Marinated chicken pieces wrapped in tracing paper and deep fried, this dish brought back many fond childhood memories.

Unwrapped....the chicken tasted strongly of soy sauce and sesame oil. Almost teriyaki-ish. Loved it!
Nam Yue pork ribs, at RM3.00/piece. Exquisite, this was all salty and tasty, with really crispy edges.
This was my favourite dish. The beef fried rice was excellent, fragrant with sesame oil, eggs and bits of beef that were absolutely tender.

And of course, the beef koey teow done in "wat tan hor" style. It was good, but not as good as the fried rice.

The bill for 6 came up to RM101.00 which is considered quite pricey, for hawker-style dishes. That's probably cause it's located in the tourist belt of Bukit Bintang.

No doubts about another very good restaurant in KL, albeit a little bit more expensive than others. Well you get what you pay for as they say.

I'll have to try this restaurant the next time I'm in that part of town.
