Peninsula Chinese Cuisine, Hong Kong Street Chun Kee & Boon Signature Recipe

Peninsula Chinese Cuisine in Ara Damansara specialises in banquet-style dining at predictably steep prices - at RM35, its roasted crispy pork belly can safely be skipped, while the fried rice with morsels of Parma ham & smoked duck is competent without being compelling (RM45). Forgo the pork chop, mismatched with a cloying, artificial-tasting strawberry glaze (RM42).

No harm, no foul from this PJ offshoot of a Singaporean family of restaurants: Chun Kee's prawn sauce chicken, crispy soft shell crab with pork floss, sliced snakehead fish bee hoon soup, herbal chicken & sliced fish hor fun might not exactly be the sort of stuff that inspires fervent sonnets, but it won't be a lunch that unleashes feverish brickbats either. Easy meal to finish.

  1. I think I just lost my comment, connection problem.
    I was saying that RM45 for fried rice is not for me. How far can one get with fried rice? I would not mind it if it is a platter of generous servings of Parma ham and smoked duck with rice by the side...like the nice wanton mee at the second place - so much meat. How much was that?

    1. Suituapui: heh, RM45 would be ok if it was fried rice with foie gras :D but anyway, you're pretty much right. hmmmm, i don't have the receipt for the wantan mee dish any more, but it was a reasonable-value price for that one, since it was a simpler neighbourhood shop-house eatery ;)

  2. You mean their outlet in Kota Damansara is no longer in operation and they now sell exclusively at pasar malams? Not so fancy but lower overheads and more profit, I guess.

    1. Contact.ewew: yeah, from what i understand, the kota damansara outlet closed several months ago (i haven't been back to that area in some time). and ya, i think they'll be able to flourish at the pasar malam :)

  3. The only thing I'm interested in is the wantan mee, how good if I can find a good one for breakfast now.

    1. CK: heheh, i want roti canai for breakfast! :D

  4. The photo of siew yoke really intrigued me! OMG, drooling!

    1. Choi Yen: i can happily eat siew yok a few times a week also, heheh :)
