Chan Kee (Hakka) Restaurant

The Makan Gang met up for a Chinese New Year get-together lunch. My dad also joined for the eating session as he was alone at home. Many restaurants are still closed so we tried our luck at Chan Kee (Hakka) Restaurant at Sunway Mas, near to Kampung Cempaka. was opened and on a hot day like today, you wouldn't want to be in the car touring around looking for a place to eat! This restaurant used to be at Damansara Utama but relocated to this place due to high rental at the former location.

The first dish we ordered was the "Jar Yuk" which I accidentally deleted the photo from my camera. Sigh. Anyway, Jar Yuk is pork belly marinated with fermented red bean curd and then braised with wood fungus. You can easily find this dish from any mixed rice stall. I don't quite fancy this dish though.

Their signature dish, Steamed Wan Yue (Grass Carp) with Minced Ginger Sauce. I find the fish slightly over-cooked and the ginger sauce too overpowering for me but Hubby loves it a lot.

The "Dau Gan Dau Fu" which is actually Braised Japanese Tofu with Beancurd Roll (Dau Gan), am not sure if it's called Beancurd roll but this dish is very common and can find in every chinese restaurant. Got to say the presentation of this dish was quite awful, as can be seen in the picture below. Taste wise, not too bad.

Maybe I had too much meat during the festive season, so I find the Stir-fry broccoli really appetising. Slighty tossed with garlic, and ginger, this broccoli was crunchy and delicious. Yumz.

The last dish was the Steamed Herbal Chicken which I liked the most. The gravy was really good, ended up my bowl of rice was covered with the gravy.,,yummylicious!! The presentation once again was not very appetising...the chicken looks like roast chicken but once you dig in, it's a different story altogether.

The total bill came up to RM100...not too bad considering it's the 3rd day of Chinese New Year and they didn't even mark up the price. Thumbs up!!

On way home, we stopped at this roadside Cendol and Rojak stall at Taman Megah for dessert. Mmm...very refreshing bowl of Cendol for only RM1.50. Perfect way to end a hearty meal.

Been ages since I ate at Chan Kee. Looks like the same signature dish and lots of soy sauce in the sauce. Yum to the cendol, looks good esp since it was so hot before the rainstorm in the afternoon.

lyrical lemongrass: Am afraid i do not have the address cos this is also my first time exploring sunway mas area. But it's near to the entrance of the Aman Suria new housing gated community.

mamabok: Hehehe...very cheap especially CNY period.
