Malaysia: Hong Kee
After walking around Kuala Lumpur all day, CK and I were too tired to plan out dinner. Instead, we just walked around Jalan Petaling until we settled on Hong Kee:
The row of clay pots on FIRE sealed the deal for us.
Hong Kee offered a set meal for two. That was easy enough. First came the seafood and veggies roasted in tinfoil:
The stingray was probably the best thing in there. (Yes, stingray!) I was too lazy to tackle the shrimp.
I was more interested in the main dish, the claypot chicken rice:
I was pleasantly surprised by how fragrant and savory it was. But, damn, way too much rice for two people. We had so much leftover that I felt bad for not taking it to-go.
Our set meal also came with a forgettable soup:
And sauteed veggies:
We were a little skeptical of Hong Kee at first since the tables were mostly filled by foreigners. But for once the abundance of foreigners wasn't a sign of bad food.
Sorry for doubting you, Hong Kee.
