Restoran Soong Kee SS2 @ 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 have 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 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. 

Cutlery, Tissue 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 possibly need was there and they were hygienically kept in closed containers and this includes the cutlery. 

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. 

Dry Wantan 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 thickness and it was a divine experience. This is something that's out of this world and I'd give 9/10 for their Char Siew.

Wonton's 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 8/10. 


Business Hours
Having been one that has been in business since 1945, I am very impressed that they have managed to keep the taste consistent over the years, just like the one that you would get at the original stalls along Jalan Silang and the quality has not been altered, not even a little. The highlight of my meal today was definitely the Wantan Mee and Char Siew and I would love to have it again some time soon.
