Restaurant Choy Kee

Oyster Omelette (RM29.60)

Horrible omelette. The person did not break the egg properly and I bit on egg shells twice! Grr.

Hakka Braised Pork with Mui choy (RM38.10)

The best dish for the night. Very perfectly braised and the saltiness is just right. Meat could be better - instead of 80%  fats and 20% meat perhaps they could consider a better chunk.

Pork Belly with Salted Fish (RM33.90)

By far the worst I've ever had. This version has very diluted gravy and we barely even taste the salted fish.

Homemade Tofu with Preserved Cabbage (RM16.90)

Fairly simple dish to prepare. Not sure if those tofu are really homemade or just a title. It did not taste any special from regular tofus. The preserved veggie is deep fried so it's a little crunchy, which makes the tofu less boring.

Some of the other dishes we've ordered. Patin fish for RM95.40, Paku Vegetables for RM16.90. Paku Pakis seems to be very popular in Sungkai. It's difficult to get in Klang Valley and even if you do, it's not cheap. 

Anyhow, I would not recommend this place in Sungkai - the seafood aren't particularly fresh. The Patin fish tasted funny. Also, we ordered Paku Pakis with no sambal and it's not meant to go without sambal.

Choy Kee is surprisingly not very cheap - it's just slightly cheaper than Klang Valley's regular prices. Perhaps it is one of the only Chinese restaurants in the area which allows them to mark food prices up. A restaurant in a small town is usually not that pricey.
