When I yearn for home cooked style food, Restoran Wai Kee is number one on my list.
Their specialty are Hakka and local food like Yong Tau Foo, Chicken rice wine, boiled free range Chicken, Curry Fish head, Char Yok, Mui Choy Kow Yok...etc.

I eat here at least once a month and the food have always been consistent.
The place is a typical neighborhood coffee shop with no airs about it.
The kitchen with an open window is situated at the rear end of the shop and are helm by a team of able, fabulous and great women chefs.
This restaurant is family owned and the father and daughter take turns to take orders plus they are very accommodating and friendly too!

Parking is hell, most customers park by the road side, hopefully when Tesco open beside it, parking will not be a problem!

Dining alfresco outside.

Boiled Free range chicken-1/4 thigh portion-garnished with deep fried garlic, coriander leaves and spring onion-the meat was tender, fragrant and muscled.

Garlic chillies sauce for the chicken.

Fish paste stuffed greens, White smooth Beancurd and Beancurd sheet-fillings are generous with traces of pork and salted fish.

Braised flavorful 3 layered Pork belly with sliced Shiitake mushroom and soft peanuts in light Soy sauce.

Claypot Chicken rice wine-with extra fried egg with finely sliced ginger added -the rice wine soup was "kau" (thick volume) and you can get you to sweat with each spoonful without going to the gym.

Stir fried Sweet Potato leaves-smooth and leafy.

Total bill-Rm70/

Location:S/Lot 2, Batu 4 1/2,
Jln Kelang Lama, Kuala Lumpur.

That boiled free range chicken has such a nice yellow hue to it. At most restaurants in my area they are not as yellow; sometimes they are even white!

Like the pork belly :). Recently had it for dinner.

Which part of Old Klang Road is this? Why have I completely missed this? The pork and the claypot chicken dish are just what I need now!

It's a good choice when u aim for something light.

FP/Sakaigirl/WWindows-it was!
Sgirl/Duckie-for KL standard is reasonable.
ETEat-they are corn fed and let out to roam.
Selba- a lot of "kick" when eaten with the chicken meat.
550MLjarof faith-from KL after the Taman Desa bridge-besides the former Maybank office on the right.
