Soo Kee Restaurant @ Petaling Jaya

I have been really busy lately and been grabbing meals on the go due to time constraints. This was a meal I had when I visited the Sea Park wet market for some supplies. If you are a Petaling Jaya resident, you will definitely know about this restaurant that serves Ipoh style koay teow noodles as this has been around since I was a kid. Not sure why but there is so much good food around the Sea Park and Paramount area that one never goes hungry around there.



I often come back to this restaurant for a dose of Ipoh koay teow soup as I love their smooth koay teow noodles. It seems it is only in Ipoh that you can get these nice koay teow noodles as they claim the water they use to make these rice noodles is special. A bowl of the noodles usually come with a few sliced prawns, shredded chicken and chopped chives in a broth made from prawn shells and chicken stock. If you see the picture closely, you can see the hot steam arising from the bowl.



An essential order is their prawn wantan with vegetables. You can either order them seperately or with your noodles. The wantan has one prawn in it which is nice and crunchy.



Last but not least, you must always order their steamed chicken with oyster sauce. The chicken is perfectly steamed and the meat is so tender. I sometimes buy this chicken to eat with rice or noodles when I am feeling a bit lazy to cook. Although the food is excellent here, the food here is pretty pricy compared to your normal fare in the coffeeshops so you can end up paying quite a bit for your meal.
