Restoran Soo Kee - Medan Imbi

Lots of people have different tastes. Different likes, and different dislikes. Holds especially true for food - example being lots of people just love tosai, but I can't stand the stuff at all. Generally though, a good restaurant would receive generally good reviews.

Which is the case with Restoran Soo Kee, which as far as I can tell, has nothing but glowing review all over the floggosphere (is that even a word? haha). Located at Medan Imbi, the darling and I head over to try.

I like open kitchens. Always fun to watch the chefs cook up whatever you and other diners order.

We go for the ngau yuk yin yong (mixed rice noodles and koay teow fried with beef), being one of their specialties. Unfortunately we are not impressed. The beef slices are tender, but the overall dish doesn't jump out at either of us for being particularly 'yummy.' It's okay, but wouldn't warrant a drive all the way here just to eat.

The ji pao kai (chicken wrapped in paper) is another disappointment. The chicken pieces are HUGE - like some kind of mutant chicken/turkey cross-breed, but the meat is a bit dry, as there is not enough sauce.

So overall, perhaps Restoran Soo Kee gets a bit lower marks due to our very high expectations coming here. Don't remember exactly how much, but price is reasonable for being in the middle of Kay-El.
