Restoran Hau Kee Seafood, Taman Cheras

Celebrating KCC's birthday, we went up to Taman Cheras to give her a birthday dinner treat. She suggested eating at Restoran Hau Kee Seafood as she said that we should try one of their signature dishes which is the Seafood Fried Rice. It's so special that one has to order this fried rice a day in advance! (Hau Kee's tel. no. 03-9130 0113).When we arrived there, the place was already packed. So, either come earlier than usual or later than the norm! ;o)

We asked KCC to order the dishes as this was her territory. I did request for Superior Spinach soup as I was in the mood for some soup that night. KCC ordered Fried Lotus Root, Cheese Roll and Salted Egg Prawns. The Special Seafood Fried Rice being pre-ordered a day earlier was the first to be served. It was a wonderful sight to behold! Ha ha ha....
The Special Seafood Fried Rice was so delicious. Packed with prawns, crabmeat,golden anchovies, fresh and dried scallops, each spoonful was yummy!
Next came the Cheese Roll, it was a floury batter with soft filling of corn, bits of chicken ham and a bit of melted cheese (not too rich luckily). Another tasty dish!
The simple yet another delicious dish of fried lotus root.
The Salted Egg Prawn also deserved thumbs-up. I like it as it was the dry version, hence the prawns were still crispy!
The Superior Spinach Soup came in a little wok and was yummy too.

All in all, we really enjoyed the dishes at Hau Kee. The biggest surprise of all that night was that KCC had already prepaid the bill (she is a regular) on the day she ordered the rice. So, I don't really know how much this meal cost. We ended up only buying her drinks later and footing the bill for some light supper for her mom. Well, I'll be back but it looks like I have to eat here without inviting KCC next time! Thanks again, KCC. Oh, and remember this advice below... ;o)

xiu long bao : Sorry, don't know that much about thai food. I find the food on the sweet side, when it comes to spicy dishes I prefer it savoury.

The Mantra Restaurant that I posted on also serves Thai food apart from Northern Indian food. It should be authentic enough as they say they have a chef from Thailand. I didn't try it though. But the food there was good. Check the post on Mantra. It's in Sunway Pyramid.

For something spicy, try the Korean Kimchi Chigae (Kimchi Soup) at Amcorp Mall, Level 3. Guarantee to get your nose running! ;o)

Those seafood really got my saliva flooding the keyboard bigtime! Been there a few times but never had the fried rice. Scary crowd too.

wmw said...

team bsg : Ha ha...magnificent is the word!

tummythoz : Must try...but remember to order one day ahead.

I don't know whether they only cook this for regulars or not but you can call and ask. Have added the phone no. to the post.
