Abalone is one of the "precious food" among chinese cuisine. I am lucky to be invited for this abalone dining at Tuck Kee Restaurant. Frankly speaking, I am not very fond of it...but we cannot deny the health benefit of abalone. This species of shellfish is rich in concentrated marine proteins & vitamins.
My portion of fat succulent Alisan abalone serves with oyster and "Fah Choy", the sauce was marvelous, taste was just nice, blend well with the other ingredients. Perfect!
Then, the Chinese sausage a.k.a. Lap Mei Rice comes in claypot.
I notice that it is a bit different from the ordinary claypot rice because, there is not dark soy sauce being added. The preparation is simply , without adding too much additives aand yet taste good, not oily either it is not too dry!
Here comes the Special "Wat Dan Hor" - Keow Teoy with egg ,Big Prawns & scallop
Can you see how fat is the prawn?
Finally, the dessert, mango jelly with lemongrass flavour - something special, tastes great!
Ok, something about this restaurant. In fact, this restaurant is more like neighbourhood restaurant in Pasir Pinji. It serves quite economy chinese dishes.
However, you can special order some "out of menu" dishes prepared all by their chef cook. Of course, be prepared to pay higher for it...
Pre-booking is needed as well.....for the special dishes.
