It is not easy being a food blogger. The most difficult part is to find good post to be used as a topic. Yes, Malaysia is blessed with good and affordable food but I can honestly say here that I do not know much to enjoy the great food we have here in Malaysia. So the best way to discover great food still comes by the old fashion way which is by word of mouth.
I have heard about Keong Kee through a forumer one day but was quite skeptical about it as he mentioned that they serve great soup and wild boar curry. I remember asking myself. Soup? How great could that taste? Trusting his words, we went all the way to Kuala Lumpur that very night to try it out.
It turns out that this is our greatest find yet. The soup they served here are double-boiled, securing every flavour and every taste. It is just amazing. One thing I find interesting here is their Pigeon Herbal Soup. They added a whole pigeon in it.
The soup I love the most would be their Herbal Soup properly sealed in a Coconut.
The second best item I love here is the Wild Boar Curry. There is only one word that can be used to describe this dish – SPECTACULAR. The texture of the meat was just great. It wasn’t too tough and it wasn’t too soft. It was just right on the dot. The sweetness of the curry goes really well with the wild boar meat.
Moving on to the Salted Vegetable with Three Layered Pork, this dish is best had with rice. The pork just melts in our mouth. I loved it. This is a must ordered dish here.
We also ordered their Mushroom with Chicken Feet cooked with Soya Sauce. My grandmother is really good in cooking this dish. I know and as I have eaten this dish many times, so I had had high expectation on it. And true enough, Keong Kee’s version is slightly better. The chicken feet was full of flavour and the mushroom needless to say, it tastes amazingly good. Although this dish is a little bit sticky, but it didn’t matter to me. Fyi, The sticky texture of this dish is contributed by the gelatine in the chicken feet.
Some other soups we had that night was the Chicken Herbal Soup. It was also quite tasty. It was loaded with ingredients.
The only dish that didn’t scored that night was the Chicken cooked with Soya Sauce.
As the place is quite busy especially during dinner time, so I would suggest you to come here a bit earlier. Here, you must at least know what to order first, as otherwise, the workers will just leave you there waiting while they serve other customers. Do check out their menu written in Chinese in front of their stall before you proceed to your table.
