Soo Kee Chinese Restaurant, Jalan Ampang Kuala Lumpur

Looking for good and simple Chinese food in the city? Looking for a dose of glistening plate Char Siew (Barbecued Pork)? Well, look no further than Soo Kee Restaurant.

There are a few must-try dishes here. At the front of the restaurant, you will be greeted by hanging barbecued meats such as Char Siew, Roast Duck and Chicken. The Char Siew is well caramelised and is definitely something I must have everytime I am there. You can go for the standard serving, or, if you are not feeling so sinful, you can also request to have a less fatty portion.

The Wan Yee Lam (belly part of a freshwater fish) is another favourite. This portion of the steamed fish is quite meaty accompanied with light soya sauce and ginger. The fish dishes are consistently cooked well and is a dish you can’t go wrong with.

The Sweet and Sour Pork is also another recommendation. The batter is crispy and cooked in a thick sticky sauce with fresh pineapples, tomatoes, onions and some capsicum.

Next on the menu, a claypot.

Claypot Tofu! We got a generous serving of tofu that was steaming hot with a variety of vegetables, pork and prawns. The soupy sauce goes well with a plate of steamed white rice.

Being the health conscious people that we are, the meal is incomplete without a plate of vegetables, in this case, Kai Lan (Chinese Broccoli). The Kai Lan is stir-fried with pork, prawns, and some other pork spare parts.

Soo Kee Restaurant is in a rather concealed location as it faces part of a flyover along Jalan Ampang. For those who are familiar with the restaurants Ma Maison and La Risata, it is on the opposite side of these shop lots.

    The sweet and sour pork looks nice. It’s pretty rare meet such high quality sweet and sour pork as most of the sweet and sour pork I ate are rubbish. Perhaps I should visit the restaurant one day.
