I’ve spotted Hoo Yee Kee plenty of times while on the way to one of the better late night bak kut teh places at Kaka BKT in Kepong, what captured my attention was the big neon sign of a prawn over the roof of the hawker shag turned psychedelic dining area.

I told myself I’d give this place a try one of these days, and I did just that last week. *proud*

Don’t be fooled by the exterior of this place. From afar, it almost look like some air conditioned high class restaurant, but in actual fact it is just a highly renovated stall with a touch of quirkiness in design. This means that it is somewhat cute, but lacking in total environmental protection during thunderstorms, for example.

The menu is pretty extensive, lam mee, prawn mee, various sorts of drinks, chicken rice (if I remember), and a few other stuff. We ordered pretty “up market” noodle for both of us, while the “normal” meal starts from around RM 4.50, as you would expect from most hawker centres.

This plate of lam mee with crab (RM 18) was what Haze ordered.

This dish took a little while to serve, not entirely surprising since they had to cook the crab from scratch. The end result is a sweet tasting crab sitting on top of lam mee, with a half a hard boiled egg and all the other usual lam mee ingredients. The crab made the broth especially tasty too! It was very good.

As for me, I went with their prawn mee with meat (RM12, normal RM 4.50). It came with a couple pork balls, pork slice, ribs, and a lot of intestine which I liked. The soup was a tad too sweet for me but otherwise a decent bowl of prawn mee. I still prefer the version at Yon Lee, TTDI to be honest. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t any impressive, not especially after I’ve seen the crab lam mee.

Both lam mee and prawn mee also do come in meat version, seafood version, and crab version. I haven’t tried the seafood version, but it does look to offer good value at RM 12. Will go there again, it’s especially convenient since the place’s open around the clock. 😀

    Wow, the crab looks nice. And it seems like it’s holding an egg!

  4. have to come here on weekends… coming here on weekdays mean only one thing… stuck in the jam

  5. WOW! AN ENTIRE CRAB. Jesus Christ, that is one nice meal. Heh!

  6. Wah, they served the entire crab nowadays? Been a long time since I last eaten there…can’t eat anymore prawn mee. 😐

  7. just a few mins drive from my house but seldom visit them, a bit overpriced & food not really impress me 😕

    • mimid3vils: a bowl of normal prawn/lam mee at RM 4.50 can’t really be considered overpriced I think

  8. wah i’ve never seen a crab lam mee before! looks naisss

  9. their presentation looks decent ehhh…but ordering crab meal is like commiting suicide to me…just too much hassle to savour such a meat-less creature. I know some ppl will say that having crab is like having sex 😳 with orgasm at the end to enjoy the sweety meat. To me that whole warming up process are just so time killing. 🙁

  10. huh.. 2 fler eat never invite me.. pftt … chsssss
