Restaurant Hung Kee, KL

Went down to KL with Abner for brunch and erm, then later for lunch? One of those pigging out days again..
He wanted me to try a famous wantan mee at Loke Yew and soon I find myself at Hung Kee.
Hey I've been here years back!
Abner's face fell, I felt so bad actually.
But I've only been here once and was actually told that it's good for char siew rice, not the wantan noodles. Never tried the wantan noodles before, I quickly added
Ah, my redemption :p
Since I was 'misled' years back that Hung Kee was famed for char siew rice; I definitely had to try the wantan noodles.
The wantan noodles looks yummy
It's really springy, definitely had the QQ texture that is so very important in wantan noodles. The sauce base was very old school, but done wonderfully. The char siew was good, it's the more solid meat type, not the melt-in-mouth char siews.
What's amazing for me was the wantan serving that came with my noodles..
The norm serving would be 3 pieces of wantans? They gave me 6 juicy, well marinated pork wantan. Delicious. :)
Abner had roast pork wantan noodles..
Same yummy noodles, but the roast pork was not very impressive. Oh, and he got less wantans...3 wantans if you have wantan noodles with roast pork :p
Restaurant Hung Kee is located at 28-5, 28-6, Jalan Loke Yew, Pudu, Kuala Lumpur.

Ahh one of my default place to have a reasonably good wantan mee anytime of the day. Not impressed by the siew yok either.

You must have made little Abdner really proud to be able to share such close proximity round table with the golden meat plus those wrinkled fillings , along such a long & dangerously gangsterlokeU lane where anything can happen ( even during brunch ), we think he intended it that way
