I was indeed excited at the thought of finally revisiting my long lost Lim Kee, now known to me as Lim Kee Tang Hun. So, has any of my old fave dishes stood the test of time (and relocation)?
The Fried Abacus Seeds still tasted good to me. The abacus seeds seem a bit softer as compared to back then. I just love biting into the bits of dried prawns and coriander!
The Fried Tang Hoon (Glass Noodles) with Bitter gourd also fared well. Again, not oily and light ... like the same as before.
We ordered the Fruit Juice Pork Ribs and it came out slightly different from the earlier version. These came in much smaller bite sized (see the earlier bigger sized serving HERE). The fruit juice also tasted different to me, more of an enzyme flavour ... an acquired taste, either you like it or you don't. I couldn't decide as I was disappointed with the change.
Having tasted this wet dish from the old location, we ordered the Fried Sweet Potato Noodles and wondered if it's better now. Well, if you were to compared to the old pic - this is definitely not as wet as before (not swimming in a pool of gravy) which is good news but it was still too wet for our liking. Must make a mental note - remember to ask them for a dry version of this the next time we order it. And yes, you can request for more crispy lard if you want ;o).
Other dishes ordered were a vegetable dish and Kam Heong Lala. Bill came up to RM89 (plus tea) for the 4 of us. In my heart, I wish I was still dining at the old shack; it has lost some of the rustic charm (and maybe taste)...but I have to embrace the change and that I will do. I'll be back ... we'll be back.
If you don't like something, change it;
If you can't change it, change the way you think about it
