Meng Kee Char Siew

We noticed this new eatery in Happy Garden one evening so stopped by for early dinner at 4.30pm.

Char Siew Wanton noodle in soup MYR5.50 nett which is cheaper than the bowl of 5 dumplings (sui kao) MYR6 nett.

White coffee MYR3 nett and purple sweet potatoes sweet soup also the same price as the white coffee.

Bright and clean interior

They are supposed to be a branch of the famous Meng Kee Restaurant along Tengkat Tong Shin. I have only eaten there once a very, very, very long time ago. There is another branch in Kuchai Enterpreneur Park which I also have been there once a very, very long time ago.

Nett price

There is a banner which says "New opening". Those familiar with Happy Garden will recognise this row of old shophouses.

  2. Normally I would have my wanton noodles dry, but your soup version looks good too, maybe I will try soup version one of these days

  6. I wouldn't mind having the same for my dinner. Even though I prefer dry version but once in a while I will order the soup version. I love sui kao.

  7. Normal, sui kao always more expensive than noodles one... I actually don't like sui kao that much due to those crunchy veggie bits in the filling, but my mom loves those.

    1. The crunchy bits are the best because they are water chestnuts.

  8. Oh yes, we go to Meng Kee few times a month for lunch.. Colleagues like it there.. The char-siew is very very good.. But very expensive, RM40 for a small plate, not enuff, everyone just gets 2 pieces, hehe..

  9. I've also eaten at the Tengkat Tong Shin one a very long time ago. I hear that there's also one in Shah Alam. But I get my fix from the Taman Shamelin one, opened by one of the brothers.

  13. There's one in Glenmarie too I think. Hmm pretty stingy on the char siew in your noodle considering they're famous for char siew!

    1. They want us to order the famous char siew separately so that they can make more I guess. The branch at Kuchai Lama also gives very little char siew in their noodles so I only went there once and no more.

  14. My in-law relatives live near there so I will look out for this shop.
    Sweet potatoes are good for health and I didn;t even realise it until my wife told me.

    1. Your wife is correct, the purple colour contains anti oxidant.
