Restoran Yik Kee at Karak
A few months ago, I was invited to Karak for a durian feast. Read more about it HERE.
This was my first time to Karak town. Yik Kee located at the main road, its quite impossible to miss it.
Yik Kee is passed down to third generation now and they are still doing good at it. Well, for this occasion, the food is cooked exclusively to us by their third generation owner, Ah Chee. To our understanding, he can cook even though he usually manage one of the chain restaurants. So can the boss cook?
Cantonese fried yee mee was the first. Firstly, “Wok hei” was there. The noodles were deep fried and then cooked together with the paste and the meat and vege. Paste was not so starchy and the noodles came with generous amount of meat and vege. Flavour was equally right. This was good!
It looks like beef kuey teow but its actually the ostrich kuey teow. The taste was good and the meat was tender. Not much place offered this though, normally due to special request. Marvelous!
Wanton with soup was next. Nothing to shout about, decent stuffs!
Lastly we were introduced to their homemade passion fruit dessert. Suprisingly, they grew the passion fruit themselves. They had their own farm producing durians as well.
It was an amazing lunch. We got to know that they produced their own soy sauce as well. The place might be slightly old but its nostalgic.
Yik Kee is recommended!
