Sometimes the closest restaurants are the one that you never really bother to go, and such is the case with Hoi Peng Seafood at SS2 for us. After staying at SS3 for almost ten years, we only went to this place the other day when Horng suggested that maybe we should check it out since it’s a branch from the famous Old Klang Road eatery.

So we did, and luckily, were not disappointed.

Hoi Peng is located on the same row as the massive electrical appliance store that is ESH, and thankfully, this side of SS2 (which also houses Lobsterman, Nyonya Restaurant, Bibichik, Teo Chew Meng, etc) does not have the same parking problem as the main square.

There isn’t any decoration to speak of, but the restaurant is equipped with air conditioning, something that they were very proud of when it was first opened some 20+ years ago.

The menu is pretty simple here, you have crab, prawns, a few types of fish, vegetable, tofu, and chicken. There is no pork, and to me, this is forgivable for a seafood place.

For the four of us, we ordered 2 crabs. They were pretty big and most importantly, tasted very fresh, firm, and packed with that seafood sweetness. We got ours steamed and it was glorious. The Chinese wine, ginger, and small amount of egg white completes the dish. We really loved it.

The kam heong mantis shrimp had a great tasting coating to it and was rather delicious. However, we wished that the mantis prawns were bigger though, there were more crust than meat here.

Seafood tofu did not disappoint, I would describe it as something in between a very good crab stick and tofu, can’t go wrong with the accompanying chili sauce.

Our stomach stuffer was fried tongfun (glass noodle) with shrimps. Simple and delicious.

Finally, a plate of tin chat (田七 ) vegetable provided the necessary vitamin C quota, and if you have the chance, you should definitely try it. The leafy vegetable has a very distinct taste to it that I really enjoyed.

At almost RM 60 per pax, dinner here is certainly not cheap, but with the quality of food and those excellent crabs, I would not hesitate to return.

Discuss : KY eats – Hoi Peng Seafood Restaraunt, SS2

  1. Woah… look at those claws!

  2. Wouldn’t mind trying this!

  3. KY, only in Asia I could find mantis prawns. I dine on it alot when in Hong Kong and Taipei. Is that stir fry green sweet potato leaves? I never had it yet and could not find it in San Francisco but would like to try it.

    • Vickie: those aren’t green sweet potato leaves but the leave of the popular chinese medicine “tin chat” (in Cantonese)

  4. The crabs look good! We don’t have many steamed crabs, they like to bake them here.

  5. Those crabs sure look glorious instead, those giant claws!!!

  6. Steamed crabs always too bland for me, give me the “nai you” crab please~~~ 😆

  7. KY
    This place is famous for their Salted egg baked crabs, the BEST in PJ.

  8. SOH CHAT LA U

  9. Rm240 for this is way too steep leh. Not worth.

  10. Just came back fr Hoi Peng. They are not honest with the weight of the crabs. Two medium size at 1.8 kilos. I think it’s only 1 to 1.1 kilos at best!

    They have adjusted up to as much as 80% more!!

    • Ken: oOo that’s quite an allegation, it is an offense that’s punishable by law if caught cheating on scale.
