Sun Huat Kee @ Bangsar.

My makan kaki and chauffer is finally back, but leaving me again for Kedah very soon :I

Nevermind, I still have a bunch of makan kakis here....an obligatory pix of Mr. sexy beast & Jackson Abdullah.
And of course, good food to keep me accompanied *grin*.
Thanks to Big Boys Oven, 7 of us gathered again a week after the seafood galore. This time round, we had some very nice home-cooked food @ Sun Huat Kee, located at Bangsar.
Being a Hakka Moi, my fave food has to be Yong Tao Foo and Vinegar Pork. I didn't expect much from Sun Huat Kee as I have my own fave Yong Tao Foo stall back in my hometown. But I was certainly impressed when I first bit into their crispy stuffed brinjal. It was so delicious and the gravy (cooked with bean paste) matches the brinjals perfectly.
Other varieties like beancurds, lady fingers, chillies, tofu poks and bittergourds were generously
stuffed with fish paste.
Oh yes, not to forget another must-try-dish, succulent pork balls. These pork balls remind me of Stephen Chow's 'God of cookery' movie that featured his new creation--exploding sauce beef balls. Got it?
Another plain looking dish--fried fish cake which I didn't expect that it tasted well too.
We were also being served a plate of fried dumplings and fried foo-chook(beancurd sheets). I can assure you that they tasted delicious too though I didn't get to try them. I was too busy snapping food pix that nite and when I finally settle down and started savouring my food, these two plates of goodies already disappeared. Grrr...I'll be back!
Featuring Sexy-kiasu-beast's life long lover--chicken of course. Aside from Hakka specialties, you can also savour top notch Ipoh steamed chicken and beansprouts from Sun Huat Kee.
Have a plate of fragrant chicken rice to go with your plate of steamed chicken. Wonderful combination. The rice came with bits of shredded ginger too.
This pot of Vinegar Pork came piping hot. Love the sourish gravy and tender pork. A good try.
Nooo...we were not done yet. We were still being served 5 bowls of porridge. From left to right: roast pork porridge (very flavourful!), century egg and salted egg porridge (my fave!), fish porridge and frog porridge. I didn't try the frog version though other floggers gave really good comments about it. Yikes, I just dun like frogs!
Check out their menu and pricing. Reasonable rite? Do take note that the Yong Tao Foo are only available for breakfast and lunch but you can always have their Ipoh Chicken Rice and porridge for dinner.

Meet the restaurant owner (the new Digi yellow man) who treated us with these home-cooked goodies.

The long awaited dessert was finally served. Our eyes glowed when big boys oven told us that they made a D24 durian cake! Arhhh...feel like sinking my teeth into it now!

The luscious looking cake was topped with white chocolate pieces and fresh cranberries. To tempt you further, inside it was layered with mushy durian flesh cream and sponge cake. Simple yet satisfying. I couldn't believe that I went for the second piece though my expanding waistline sent me critical warnings.

Thanks to Sunny (in the pix) who made us this heavenly good durian cake!

LOCATION: 26, Lorong Ara Kiri 2, Lucky Garden, Bangsar. (Turn right into the shoplots after you see the mosque on your left. Sun Huat Kee is between Aliance Bank and Domino Pizza)
