In the recent Deepavali, I have brought Isaac to try one of our favourite local delicacies.
Restoran Hoo Yee Kee, famous for its Prawn Mee, is situated in the heart of Kepong.
Outside the shop, you would be attracted to a GIGANTIC prawn hung near the pillar. Perhaps, he is the PRAWN KING, overseeing the ordinary prawns being served to customers like you and me.
The last time I visited Hoo Yee Kee, it was not air-conditioned and I simply do not see the Prawn King there. Yes, right there.
Now, let’s take a look inside the restaurant which has been revamped recently.
The table settings seemed to be contemporary. Even the table spoons, sauce plates and chopsticks are placed properly as you can view from the picture above.
What the freak?
They even have a Red Indian mannequin standing outside the kitchen.
Is the Red Indian supposed to be guarding the kitchen or the dining area?
Look at the Crab standing next to his head.
The picture is a bit dark, but if you zoom it closer, you can see the cashier’s computer placed in the seashell!!
I am seriously starting to doubt on the restaurant owner’s sense of decoration.
After waiting for 20 minutes, the food is finally served.
Isaac wanted to try out the Lum Mee because he could not cope with any spicy stuffs.
Dude, check out the pork ribs!! Aww….Good!!!!
Prawn Mee with Pork Ribs is served in a big portion.
I could not finish the mee, I had to ditch at least half of the bowl to Isaac.
The Prawn Mee was still as good as before. The only setback is the mee being served in extra large portion till we felt uncomfortable in the end.
You will pay RM7.80 for both the Prawn Mee or Lum Mee each. Yes, RM7.80 is pretty costly for a bowl of Prawn Mee!!
As we walked out of the restaurant, this really caught our attention.
You are welcome to bring along your guitar to perform your melancholic singing skills as people are trying to gulp down their Prawn Mee.
Wow, I wonder how the customers could stand such amateur performances when they were supposed to enjoy their food.
