Good Food in Old District @ Petaling Kam Kee Seafood - Petaling Garden, PJ

Beautifully done soft tofu with a crisp crust, slightly chewy skin and very soft custard-like inside. Topped with lots of minced pork sans the oil. Lovely start to a simple and good meal.

I have several hot spots for food in Gasing area. Living there for a couple of years got me acquainted with Raju, Lotus, Grand City, Krishnan (new owner now), Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun, Country Kitchen and a host of coffee shops and 'Tai Chows'.

Petaling Garden is as old as Petaing Jaya. The shops being parked very near to the affluent Sect 5's bungalows and the PJ new town business district have its high points. Even Sri Paandi has opened up a huge branch in Petaling Garden not too long ago. I would say they are the smartest looking restaurant around.

Back to Petaling Kam Kee Seafood. A typical "Tai Chow" and a good one a that. Quick service, neat presentation, niftily cooked food and cheap prices. No complaints. Four of us went there for a quick lunch after a meeting.
Steam Grass Carp Tail (Wand Yee Mei) in ginger paste. Aromatic and spicy as good ginger was used. Woke-up the senses.Sweet Potato Leaves for the final flourish. Total - RM48 plus pot of tea.Address: 9 and 10, Jln 5/44.

SG... Somehow we have the Asian genes and taste for tofu.

FB... Tofu - all kinds of it and different preparations. We are so blessed.

BBO... This is one vice we can indulge in.

Selba... The Malaysians chef has taken the humble tofu to really great heights.

STL... I enjoyed for adventures too.

ling239... Cantonese has a saying, "Soong Yee Tau, Wand Yee Mei - Carp Head, Grass Carp Tail). The "Sai To" Lam (stomach) is much love for us.

LfB... Maybe we are not eating/getting this in our resto!
