Lee Tong Kee Hor Fun(Flat Rice noodles), Jln Tun HS Lee, KL

Lee Tong Kee Restaurant.......................................A bowl of tasty Hor Fun I had a lunch appointment with my sister in KL town centre this afternoon and she brought me to Lee Tong Kee Restaurant to eat their famous Hor Fun. As we entered the shop, we were greeted by the cheerful owner and her Indian helper who speaks Cantonese. We ordered the Soup Hor Fun with prawn wan tan. The service here is fast and in a jiffy the dishes that we ordered are already on our table. The hor fun is smooth and the soup is tasty. It is served with generous amount of vegetable. The prawn won tan has a nice texture and the prawn is fresh. A bowl of hor fun with prawn wan tan is priced at RM4.50 per bowl. A reasonable price for a shop that is located in the middle of the city. Other dishes that are available here are oyster sauce vegetables, tender chicken with oyster sauce, curry chicken and stewed beef. I was told that their original place was in Jalan Sultan and they have been in business since 1948. Wow, that is certainly a very long time! Jade Lee, who took over the business from her father, is a friendly and humble person. According to Jade, they have an outlet in Singapore which is frequented by many Hong Kong stars. Sometimes they will book the top floor for their function. So, if you want to catch a glimpse of some of the Hong Kong stars, remember to drop by there whenever you visit Singapore. By the way, remember to ‘tar pau’ (takeaway) for your office colleagues the vadai that is sold by the Indian lady just outside the shop. I will be back here soon to try out the curry chicken with rice.
