Hing Kee Bak Kut Teh at Jalan Kepong

Posted by Apple Foodees On April - 19 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

Hing Kee Bak Kut Teh is one of my favourite restaurant for bak kut teh. It is always very crowded every weekend. We were there at about 6pm and it was already crowded with people. Ah Go Go had once occupied the area next to Hing Kee towards the corner of the row of shop houses. But yesterday, I discovered that not only Ah Go Go had moved, but Hing Kee actually is occupying that area. This is just great – more seatings available for bkt fans.

Hing Kee - Dry Bak Kut Teh

You mustn’t miss Hing Kee’s dry bak kut teh as it is the most flavourful claypot dish ever invented, at least in my opinion. Compared to what I had previously, I find that the dry bak kut teh is not as spicy as before and it was just too oily to my liking. If you do not want your bak kut teh to be too oily, order meat only instead of meat and fat.

Hing Kee Bak Kut Teh - Soup with Pork Rib

A bak kut teh meal wouldn’t be complete without ordering the soup version. So we ordered the soup pork rib, which is much better and less oily compared to the dry bkt.

Hing Kee Bak Kut Teh - Soup with Bean Curd

Other than the above, you may also order their bean curd with vegetables, taufu pok and yau char kwai to compliment your bak kut teh dishes. Overall, I find that the standard has dropped compared to before Hing Kee has expanded. It looks like it is difficult to control the quality of the bkt when catered to more people.

Food Foundry at Happy Mansion, Petaling Jaya

Posted by Apple Foodees On April - 15 - 20141 COMMENT

It was another normal weekend and my friends and I decided to make our weekend a little bit different by going for tea break at Food Foundry. I do not know about this place until I was introduced by a friend who had just went to Food Foundry a few days ago, citing that they serve very good mille-crepe. To be honest, I do not really fancy mille-crepe at all as I prefer cakes rather than mille-crepe.

We took a short ride there from Kepong to Happy Mansion in Section 17 and surprisingly, the traffic was quite smooth. Upon arriving at Happy Mansion, I was surprised that there are many people taking their late lunches and tea breaks here. Judging by the crowd, I was quite certain that they have good food here.

Food Foundry-Mille-Crepe-Almond Salted Caramel

We approach the cake display to choose our desserts. Since Food Foundry’s Almond Salted Caramel Mille-Crepe is one that a friend of mine recommended the most, we order it. The Almond Salted Caramel mille-crepe is one of the more expensive mille-crepe here and it is priced at RM13 a slice. The mille-crepe tastes just like any other normal mille-crepes around that is quite tasteless complimented with flavourful toppings. The almond is caramelized and salted before it was placed on the mille-crepe as toppings. This is a great combination.

Food Foundry - Mille-Crepe-Vanilla

Next came the Vanilla Mille-Crepe. Priced at RM10, this Vanilla mille-crepe is recommended for those who prefer something light. While browsing through the other blogs on the internet, I realised that the price at Food Foundry has rise considerably.

Valentine’s Day Special

Posted by Apple Foodees On February - 17 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

Valentine’s Day has passed two days ago, but I am sure that many of you out there didn’t bother to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the day itself but everyday with your love ones. Contrary to popular belief, Valentine’s Day is not only celebrated by couples but everyone. It is a special day to remember and cherish your love ones. It may not be only your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife but it applies to everyone including your parents or your children if that matters.

To florists, Valentine’s Day is a day to make the most bucks. A bouquet of only five roses in Kuala Lumpur can fetch the price of RM180 to RM250 depending on the colour of the roses and the decorations that comes along with it. I do not really fancy flowers as I think they are just a waste of money. Instead, I would prefer food.

For those who are romantic and is good in the kitchen, it is good to cook a meal for your love ones. Dining at a restaurant can be very “painful” in terms of the money spent for food. Furthermore, you will not be the only couple there. There will be many couples waiting and each and everyone of them expect to be served like a “king”. But unfortunately, this only happens in movies and you will need to just join the queue and wait for your turn to be served. If you do not like waiting, cooking is the alternative.

Cooking can be fairly easy if you practice. Here is a Chicken Chop recipe which I found to be very easy to cook especially if you are a newbie in cooking. I hope you will enjoy it. Remember to keep everything simple and everything will go smoothly on this special night.

What you need:

  • 1 (16 ounce) bottle Italian salad dressing
  • 4 -6 pork chops or boneless chicken drumsticks
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • BBQ sauce


  1. Place the pork chops or chicken into a large ziploc bag or bowl with a lid (not a metal container).
  2. Pour salad dressing in the bag or bowl.
  3. Marinate at least 4 hours or overnight, turning the bag or shaking up the bowl 3 or 4 times.
  4. Place the chops on a hot grill or in a pan and cook until juices run clear.
  5. Baste these with butter as they cook so they stay tender.
  6. Serve with your favorite BBQ sides.
