Soo Kee Mee Stall @ Medan Imbi, KL

Hubby brought me to this place which he claims offer the best Beef Hor Fun! So far we have been here twice and we have always enjoyed their signature dishes.

Infamous Beef Hor Fun (RM9 per pax)

The beef hor fun is filled with gravy and egg; the beef strips were tender, plentiful and marinated oh-so flavorful-ly. The ginger and scallion brought out the fragrant of the whole dish. This dish did not disappoint and the portions were huge. So if you do not intend to sample too much of one dish, always remember to ask for 1 person's portion; as they will submit orders based on the number of pax.

Another one of their signature dish Sang Har Mee (Deep Fried Mee with River Prawns) (RM 20 per pax, I think)

I love the tasty gravy that covered the giant river prawns, that made up of salted egg yolk. When we sampled this dish, the combination of the softened mee, river prawns and the fragrant thick gravy was the best! The river prawns were evidently fresh and we could see many tourists and Japanese mainly having this dish on their tables.

Paper-wrapped Chicken (Chee Pao Kai)

These chicken pieces are marinated, wrapped then deep fried. They were juicy, flavorful and acted as a good appetizer as the opening of your meal or as a side dish.

Sweet & Sour Fish Fillets

I feel that this dish paled a lot in comparison with their signature dishes. The gravy was gravy, battered fish fillets were battered fish fillets, all separate when the fillets should be coated out well with the sweet and sour gravy. The vegetables were hard and raw when they should at least be lightly cooked. The fish fillets were no doubt lightly battered but carried an apparent fishy smell to all of the pieces. Me. no. like. fishy. fillets.

Stir-fried Vegetables

Another simple dish that failed miserably. The vegetables were old and no longer crunchy.

As a verdict, the service here was definitely not friendly at all; as though every customer is being taken for granted. Other than their signature dishes, all the other dishes did not seem appealing at all, and I don't think they would even bother to improve. Pricing-wise, the dishes here are on the high side in terms of pricing due to its popularity. And, be prepared for huge crowds and filled up tables if you intend to dine here.
