[Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia] Hakka lunch at Seong Kee, PJ Old Town

Seong Kee is one of the stalwarts in Petaling Jaya Old Town’s Medan Selera food court, offering some of the best Hakka & local Chinese-Malaysian food options in town.

Our lunch last Sunday consisted of:

  1. Suan pan jie - tapioca “abacus beads”, a Hakka favorite. It’s stir-fried with minced pork, shitake mushrooms, garlic and tofu. Absolutely delish.

  2. Hakka yong tau fu - the ones here are some of the very best in town: freshly-made each day. Their tofu was particularly good.

  1. Char yoke - Hakka braised pork belly with black fungus & fermented red bean-curd.

  2. Fish-head curry - a Chinese-Malaysian favorite and done very well here.

  3. Pig’s trotters in black vinegar and ginger - another well-executed dish: pig’s trotters were deliciously gelatinous and the sauce was well-balanced.

Very good lunch - shows that rustic, old hawker places in KL can offer some very good food options, over swish new cafes.

Food looks so beautifully colourful!!! Is that fish or pork paste in bitter melon? Its calling me.

A combination of fish and pork force-meats are used by the Hakkas here. They are the only dialect group who do so.
