Hong Kee Tim Sum, Puchong (Revisit)

So I went back to the restaurant again a week after my first visit.

In fact, I love the place so much, it has become one of my favourite dining place in Puchong (seeing that Puchong don’t really have a nice, proper, cheap and quiet restaurant to chill at on any normal weekday).

Tuesday afternoon, you’ll see me there. Wednesday afternoon, you’ll see me there too. But there’s one day I definitely won’t be there - Sunday, especially in the morning. It’s insane!!! It’s so crowded I wouldn’t want to be the one to trip and fell on the floor, next thing you know I’ll be a mesh pancake.


Anyway, back to my dim sum. This it some sort of fried fish prawn ball. I really like this, it’s very sweet and unlike the normal fish balls they have, this got flavours, a hint of black pepper to add to the spices and nice juicy prawn inside.

siu mai

One thing I like about this shop, is it’s the only dim sum place where you don’t see me complaining about Siu Mai. I know, dim sum is all about Siu Mai. What’s the point of visiting a dim sum shop and NOT eat dim sum, well, I for one. But their Siu Mai is really good and the pork is very filling, very meaty dish.

This shop has so many varieties of Siu Mai, there’s even a black pepper flavour (green skin) which tasted like pork steak. Yum~

har kao

My favourite steam dim sum dish Har Kao however, didn’t turn out the way I like it. The skin’s too thick, fillings contain too much prawn and no flavour. I mean, how can too much prawn be a bad thing right? But the fact that there’s no other ingredient apart from prawns simply destroys it.

cha lo mai

The only reason I visit this shop on a weekend is for their Cha Lo Mai (fried glutinous rice). This is to die for! I never like Lo Mai Kai (chicken glutinous rice) but I LOVE Cha Lo Mai and they only serve it on weekends. 5 stars for this.

prawn fritters

Again my favourite prawn fritters. :D

egg tarts

The egg tarts are really cute sweet little things; they come in bite size and are simply delicious.

The bill at this point (servings for two including drinks).


On the third visit, I ordered.

fried pumpkin

Fried Pumpkin? Not too sure about the ingredient but it taste like some sort of pumpkin paste and deep fried in crispy strings, but my likey. Sweet dish, nice as desserts.

har kiuk

Har Kiuk. Or Fried Prawn Roll. This is really nice, a lot of fresh, juicy, chewy prawns, though I usually leave the crispy skin at both ends aside.

pai kuat

Pork Rib. I didn’t like it, my friend loved it. I guess it depends.

lotus leaf rice

Lotus Leaf Rice, delicious and very fragrant. Though I prefer Cha Lo Mai but it was a weekday when I had this.

Finally, nothing beats a good weekday brunch with a cup of thick milo ice to wash it all down.
