Best Chee Cheung Fun in Klang Valley @ Yap Hup Kee, Kuchai Lama


Let's just be honest, not everyone can get accustom to eating like a king everyday. 

Often times we are so blessed with food (especially Malaysian), we do not have to worry where and what to get for sustenance at all, we are spoilt for choices. 

The F&B scene is so saturated with cafes nowadays, and at one point I got so sick of the cafe food, like american breakfast, eggs benedict, granola, toast... I mean, give me some real decent street food!

Pumpkin Barley. 

I've cut down a lot hunting for cafes lately as the cravings for street food in me was so intense.
I will easily choose prawn mee over chicken chop ; chee cheung fun over prata. 

I've came across Yap Hup Kee online, and get to know that they serve very good curry chee cheung fun and yong tau foo in their Pudu branch. I've decided to drop by their Kuchai branch as it's closer to where I'm staying. 

For starters, we had the deep fried vegetarian goose. 
Which is deep fried till golden colour. 
It was so light and airy, crispy and not oily at all! 

Try the Fried Salted Egg Yam Dumplings (RM4.50) which boasted a crispy texture at the first bite and soon followed by the crunch from the water chestnut. A simply yet delicious snacks to nibble on.

Honey Barbecued fried intestine. RM4.50

I personally think that those who doesn't eat innards are missing out a lot!
The intestine was slightly chewy, sweet, and absolutely delectable!
My mouth waters as I look at this again. 

For those who are not so adventurous, try their deep fried taufoo stuffed with salted fish, it taste equally delicious as the previous ones. 

The fillings were superb, its mildly saltish nuance melding wonderfully with the taufoo making them irresistibly addictive.

Mince pork Loh Sue Fun- RM4.50

When it comes to classic comfort food, nothing beats this traditional loh sue fun. With the simplest ingredients such as mince meat, soy sauce and shallot oil, this simple homely dish is sure to appeal to all ages. 

Toss everything together and devour!

Big Prawn Dumpling with pickled vege soup. RM12.50

The soup version dumpling is perfectly suited for those who prefer clear, uncomplicated nuances.

Tell me how can it go wrong for a dumpling when they stuff in a whole piece of fresh bouncy prawn in it? 
It was love at first bite when I sampled the big prawn dumplings. 

Whole prawn is used instead of chunks. If you can take spicy, I would recommend you to dip it with their sambal belacan, I bet you’d find the dish deftly executed after taking the first bite. 

The piquancy of sambal belacan should please those with a penchant for strong flavours like me. 

Fried Big Prawn Dumpling- RM12.50

Personally, I’m partial to the deep fried version. It's super crispy exterior yielding delectable fillings of minced meat, huge (whole) prawns and finely cut carrots. 

Chee Cheung Fun with dried shrimp- RM2.50

Sometimes it's the simplest food that tames the most complicated tastebuds.

In Yap Hup Kee, they use flat rice roll instead of the usual rolled cheung fun; don't expect to get the Hongkie version which comes with char siew or prawn fillings here as Yap Hup Kee's version is only adorned with minced pork topping and dried shrimp. 

Curry Chee Cheung Fun- RM2.50

While the rice sheets are like a blank canvas, it plays a super important role to soak up all the sauce, it must thin and silken. I found that the cheung fun here is soft and just a slight springy, very appetising. For a more flavourful version, try their curry ccf.

The curry is not too thick nor too dilute; curry taste is robust yet not overpowering, I absolutely enjoy slurping the slippery chee cheung fun and the curry that were adhering to it, I think they've executed very well in striking a balance in this dish. No complains at all! 

What's more? Despite the GST hike lately, the price for a plate of delectable ccf here is RM2.50 ONLY! What a steal! 

Yap Hup Kee Palace( Kuchai Lama) is the sister restaurant of Yap Hup Kee (Pudu) which specialise on Yong Tau Foo & Chee Cheung Fun.
The Kuchai Lama branch is only six month old and it has a slightly modernise and conducive interior compared to the one in Pudu. 

They DO NOT serve the exact same (extensive)menu from the one in Pudu as they want to focus on what they do best here- which is their well-known Chee Cheung Fun. 
By limiting the items on the menu here, they get to increase the efficiency and the quality of food that they serve to their customers.
