NO LONGER IN OPERATION
Yes, the title says it all. Since my first visit here with Precious Pea back in 2009, I've been coming back to Sim Hap Ke now and then as I absolutely love their dishes. If it was not for the fact that it's in Cheras, I would surely dine at Sim Hap Ke even more often. I've also passed the love on to Jason and other non-bloggers like Ash and Kev (who would drive over and pack a dish or two just for his own consumption, definitely no sharing from him! hahaha...) and they too are in love with Sim Hap Ke dishes.
So, what else is there to say but to just let you know what are those dishes that I love...and that if you are ever there (for the first time) and don't know what to order...here are some dishes that you might want to try. Well, these are my "must order(s)" whenever I'm there - I don't eat all these in one visit of course!
Caution : with such delicious dishes (especially those with gravy), one is bound to order an extra bowl (or two) of rice!
Now, this is tricky...Sim Hap Ke dishes up their Deep Fried Squid great...tricky 'cos you gotta choose between the Salt & Pepper
The Salted Egg Yolk style ...obviously the Salted Egg Yolk has a "heavier" batter as compared to the "cleaner" Salt & Pepper but seriously, both are great.
The 3 Flavour
Chicken. Oops...ribs! I ordered this meaty dish and kept thinking it was chicken! This is a another flavourful dish - Lemon & Butter sauce with Curry Leaves. Another palate pleasing dish.
Now, I'm sure this would please pork lovers...the Stewed Pork Belly (Tung Po Yuk) comes resting on a bed of delicious preserved mustard cabbage (mui choy) with some steam buns (Mantau) on the side. The meat (and the fats) itself is tender and flavourful. I sure you can see how tender the meat is from the photo itself.
Salt Baked Clams (Lala) - this is a simple dish but yet one that satisfies even a non seafood lover like me. The smokey taste clings onto the meat. Have it with your rice or with an order of lettuce on the side. By the way, this dish goes well with beer! :o) The clam shells doesn't escape too, they can a good licking! Haha..
Fried Lotus Root - found elsewhere too but Sim Hap Ke does a mean and wonderful crunchy version of it. So, it deserves a mention too.
