Tien Kee (田记) is becoming one of my favorite comfort food places ever since Kelvin brought me there after one of our badminton sessions. Traditional and true to the origin Teow Chew and Hakka food with reasonable price in a comfortable surrounding, I can’t really ask for more.

The restaurant has a very simple one-page menu that lays out everything they serve. While not very extensive, you do get quite a selection of traditional Teow Chew and Hakka food. There are a few choices of Soup dishes ranging from Grouper, Pomphret, and Saito fish to pork and bitter gourd. Other than that, they have abacus (客家算盘子), soon kueh (客家笋糕), otak-otak, pork with yam (芋头扣肉), and pork knuckle with vinger (猪脚醋)as well.

I have been actually been to this place 4-5 times ever since first stepped foot in it less than a month ago. This is from someone who usually don’t visit the same place twice in the same week.

I’ve had the soup dishes, tried the abacus, otak-otak, pork dishes, and soon kueh. So far I could say that none of the dishes disappoint. The soup dishes were very subtle and goes down easy with either white rice, if you are slightly more adventurous, there are long bean rice and yam rice too.

The soon kueh is a type of dumpling look-alike that is stuffed with dried shrimps, bamboo shoots, fungus, and minced meat. You should really try this out as there aren’t many places that serve this the way it’s supposed to be. Surprisingly, the otak-otak was rather good too, and the other dishes were equally up to the task in satisfying taste buds.

The soup dishes are priced from RM 5 to RM 15 while the other side dishes range from RM 2.20 to RM 7. A pretty good value for some very good old fashion cuisine. You don’t need to confine yourself to having porridge when you are looking for some comfort food.

    Hi, Thanks for the recommendation of Tien Kee. I enjoyed the Soon Kueh. Have you tried the Otak-otak in Nyonya Restaurant in SS2? It’s cheaper and nicer – my personal opinion. Can taste more fish inside. Other than the Otak-Otak, the traditional nyonya food is nice. Paku-pakis. Beef Rendang. Prawns in Coconut is my favorite. The shop is not inside the SS2 Square area. It’s the same row as Sri Siam Restaurant. http://www.nyonya-restaurant.com/
