Restoran Soong Kee SS 2 @ Petaling Jaya, Selangor

I am sure that many of the Chinese food lovers would have heard of and perhaps even been to Soong Kee, Ho Wing Kee and Lo Yao Kee that's located along Jalan Silang, Kuala Lumpur. These are some famous eateries that has been around since the year 1945. Despite being three different stalls specialising in a specific range of dishes, they all belong to the same group. And here's the good news. You can now enjoy all these delicacies from these three stalls under one roof. Restoran Soog Kee SS2 that's located along Jalan SS 2/66 in Petaling Jaya brings together their best dishes under one roof, all for the comfort and convenience of their customers. 

The Restaurant Located Along Jalan SS 2/66
It's not really difficult to locate this restaurant. If you know where DiGi outlet in SS 2 is, this restaurant is just a few doors away. Alternatively assuming that you're coming in from the LDP, you would turn left at LDP, keep going straight and turn right at the first turning. Once you have turned in here, you would see some houses on your right and the shops on your left. Keep going straight towards the end of the second block and you would come to this restaurant. Parking is always a challenge here and so it's best to come for breakfast. Please do note that the restaurant is open six days a week and is closed on Mondays.

Even at the entrance, you get a blown up picture of their menu along with one of the newspaper write ups. The restaurant is air-conditioned and I would say is fairly trendy. Obviously one wouldn't expect very cheap prices here in SS2 bearing in mind the locality and the overall ambiance. In fact, for this area, I felt that the prices were quite reasonable. Once I was inside, this time the Lady Boss herself attended to me. She passed me a chit and a pencil and I had to fill in the orders in those tick boxes. It was very nice of her to take a few minutes and assist me with the ordering process. 

Cutlery, Tissue Paper and Everything Else That You May Need
The restaurant was so organised and I love the way they had neatly arranged the cutlery, tissue paper and the other items neatly in one corner of the table. Everything that you may posibly need was there and they were hygienically kept in closed containers and this includes the cutlery. 

Chinese Tea @ RM 0.50
Fifty cents for a glass of Chinese Tea? That's cheap for this area. Even in Tanjung Malim, it's the same price. Service is really good here and the staffs were continuously being on their feet meeting customer's demands. Right from taking the orders till the time you leave, there's always someone looking to serve you. 

Dry Wanton Noodles with Char Siew @ RM 6.90
When the above Kon Low Mee arrived, it did look odd to me. The noodles itself seemed different and even the Char Siew looked very different. But it all changed with the first bite and I was in love with this dish.The springy egg noodles were so different to the ones that I have tried before. They were so springy, soft and it was just so good. Words just can't describe that pleasure in my palate. The base sauce was perfect and overall it was just splendid. I would give this a 9/10. Now, their Char Siew was something else altogether. When I say melt in the mouth, this was the real melt in the mouth. It had the right balance of meat and fat, skillfully cut to just the right thickess and it was a divine experience. This is something that's out of this world. A perfect 10/10 for their Char Siew.

Wanton Dumplings in Clear Soup
This is provided along with the above dish. The clear soup was good but it wasn't the best that I have had. As for the soup, I'd give it a 7/10. The dumplings however were quite good. Meaty, chewy and juicy and the outer flour wasn't too thick which is just the way that it should be. My rating for this would be a 8/10. 

Steamed Chicken @ RM 6.40
The Steamed Chicken was pretty good as well. Moisture content was lesser and that gave it a flatter texture, otherwise the blend of sauces and the chicken was excellent. It was definitely one that I had enjoyed. A perfect side dish to go with the noodles, porridge or good to be even eaten on it's own. This I would rate it at 8/10. 

Based on the dishes that I had tried this morning, the food seems consistent with the original stalls and the quality has not been altered, not even a little. The highlight of my meal today was definitely the Kon Low Mee and Char Siew and I would love to have it again some time soon.
