One evening, my partner suggested that we go to a restaurant in Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) for our Friday dinner. We hardly venture to TTDI even though it is so near us.
Anyway, I agreed as we had run out of places to go at Damansara Uptown. My partner is not very adventurous when it comes to food, hence our limited choices. He likes Chinese food, rice with dishes, you get the drift.
So there we were at Restoran Yik Kee, a very typical Chinese restaurant much like Sam You. We were handed a menu each and just as quickly, the server came to take our orders.
I did not have enough time to flip through the menu and since my partner has been here before, he suggested some dishes with the help of the server. As usual, we ordered 4 dishes. For drinks, we shared the lou han gou, something my partner enjoys.
I would have preferred it cold but since my partner likes it warm, I gave in to his preference.
Since he was in a playful mood, I asked him to hold the spoon so that I could photograph the contents of the drink. It was quite a nice drink, not too sweet but I thought the lemon was out of place.
My favorite condiments - minced garlic and chili padi. I helped myself to quite a lot of the chilies and my partner suggested that I should empty the container, take a photo and tell everyone what I did hah...hah....
First dish to arrive was this claypot chicken. Sorry I don't know the proper names of all the dishes. It is one of their signature dishes and it was very good.
The chicken was fresh and succulent. It was cooked just right and we enjoyed this dish very much. I believe those green bits of vegetables (besides the spring onions) is basil though the taste was not prominent.
Next up was the deep fried tofu with minced meat, another signature dish. It was nice enough and it was all right to me.
The sweet and sour fish fillets were very tasty and I noted that the fish was not battered and deep fried. It was fine by me and it was another favorite for me that evening.
For veggies, I could not resist these baby French beans.
It was a very nice meal and I told my partner that we should come back. As we were leaving, my partner was very cooperative and asked if I wanted to pose with the signboard so that I could share it with you guys wahahaha!! Of course I want the signboard but without me lah.
Well, I want to eat here again though parking can be quite a pain. In fact we had to park a short distance away and walked over. But that's OK. A bit of exercise before and after dinner is good, eh?
