Kuala Lumpur - Best Fish Congee in KL ... or Malaysia?

klyeoh | Oct 1, 2011 08:45 AM

I felt Hon Kee deserved its own thread - I first heard of this place from Penang-based, KL Chowhound, OneBigMouth:

Had breakfast at Hon Kee's outlet in Lot 10 Hutong today, but I'd recommend a visit to its original eatery in Petaling Street (Chinatown) - there, I'm sure you'll get freshly-prepared "yau char kwai" (油炸鬼) instead of the cold, not-so-crisp ones you'll get from the Lot 10 Hutong outlet.

One thing's for sure - Hon Kee served the BEST Cantonese-style raw fish congee I'd ever had , ever! The congee was smooth and had a delicious, subtle flavor, tinged with sesame oil. The thinly-sliced raw fish, finely-julienned ginger, spring onions and fresh coriander were served on the side - I tossed the whole thing into the hot congee and let them cook.

I also ordered a side of deep-fried dough fritters/"yau char kwai" (油炸鬼) and a trio of very tasty par-boiled minced pork-balls. Whoa, am in culinary heaven :-D
