Hup Kee Restaurant @ Batu 4 ½ Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur

The Big Fry (Tai Chow) shop next to a Big Tree at 4 ½ Miles, Ipoh Road is an old eatery shop, the tree so big that you can hardly see the shop.
The facade of the building could easily tell you how old are this shop, probably older than many of us reading this blog. Notice the 2 adjoining neighbours, they have rebuilt their shops and this old shop is being dwarfed. But it is still ever popular with patrons coming for their food.
In those days it was called “Hup Kee Café” and the old signage which can be seen at the shop front.
EK’s all time favourite “Hum Yee Fah Lum Poh” thinly sliced pork belly fried with salt fish & dark soya sauce in clay pot. Great dish indeed.

Spinach soup with ham, egg, salted egg, century egg, mushroom and anchovies was superb, one spinach soup with generous ingredients in it. Lovely lovely… must try.

Stir fried roasted pork with Leek and local Tofu was another delicious dish.

Deep fried Mah Yeaw Yee was delicious and crispy. I enjoyed eating the crispy fish head and belly.
