Sigh! What a weekend I had. Anyway, I'm not a person to dwell on the past so let's look forward to the week. I reckon the best way to start off a week is with something really sinful and this definitely is a winner in that category - Soo Kee Char Siu. Although this place is not opened tomorrow but I guess you can all plan for this for lunch on Tuesday since it is a public holiday in Selangor.
This was a new discovery for me even though this place has been around for almost nineteen years. Located just off Jalan Ampang, the shop's frontage is limited with the flyover right next to it. To keep off the dust from the busy highway, the place is air-conditioned with glass sliding doors. You can see all the delectable char siu from the front of the shop where they hang all the barbequed meats - roast pork, roast duck, chicken and etc.
Although the char siu here is a bit fatter than what I normally prefer, I really liked the sticky caramelised outer layer. However, be warned that the char siu here isn't cheap as a small portion can cost approximately RM10. Aside from the barbequed meats, they also serve cooked dishes like vegetables and steamed fish which they are also famous for. I quite like their daily soup which goes well with the char siu and white rice.
Soo Kee Restaurant
(Non Halal. Open from noon to 9pm and closed on Monday. The restaurant is facing Jalan Ampang and right in front of the row of shophouses where Ma Maison, Ampang Grocer and La Risata is. Park around that area and walk towards this place as there is no frontage for you to park your car at.)
