Restoran Sin Chua Kee Jalan Kuchai Lama Kuala Lumpur
We recently visited Restoran Sin Chua Kee or 新蔡记海鲜饭店 at Jalan Kuchai Lama Kuala Lumpur. They are a popular Chinese seafood restaurant located at 47, Jalan Kuchai Lama 1, Taman Lian Hoe. This is our second time visited this restaurant celebrating pre-Chinese New Year dinner with our friends.
The restaurant opens from 5.30pm to 11.30pm daily and it is hard to find parking here. You might need to explore further to get a parking spot. The restaurant is separated to the air conditioned area and the natural air area.
Yee Sang with Jelly Fish
We started our dinner at Restoran Sin Chua Kee with Yee Sang. This is half portion and we chose the jelly fish instead of salmon fish. This year there are other restaurants offering deep fried soft shell crabs too, something new for 2020. The yee sang is tasty, the ingredients are fresh and no complaints.
Lala with Superior Soup
Lala with superior soup or ‘siong thong lala’. They offer bigger size clams instead of the usual lala and the flavour of the superior soup is strong and flavourful and it complement well with rice. The lala flesh is big and juicy with good texture.
Pork Ribs with Superior Sauce
This is pork ribs with superior sauce or pai kuat wong. The pork ribs are well caramelised and the meat is tender and the taste is sweet. We love the texture of the pork ribs and sticky sweet texture and kids surely love this.
Fried Squid with Salted Egg
Let’s be honest, we tasted better fried squid with salted egg in other restaurants. The texture of the squid is not that crispy and the salted egg flavour is not strong enough.
We ordered two XL Butter Crabs for RM 180. The butter sauce is slightly diluted and hence the sauce is waterish. The crabs are fresh and there is room for improvement for the sauce.
Sour and Spicy Crabs
We didn’t enjoy the Butter Crabs so we ordered another two XL crabs for RM 180. This time we ordered the Sour and Spicy Crabs and this is good. We enjoyed the sour and spicy flavour and it goes well with their deep fried mantao.
The food at Restoran Sin Chua Kee Jalan Kuchai Lama are generally good. The butter crab is not up to the mark but the other dishes are good. We will come again for sure.
