Restoran Tuck Kee

having heard great things about this restaurant, we decided to search for it when we were in the neighborhood. It’s not difficult to locate and many people know the stretch of hawker stalls across it for the famous porridge. Alas, I’ve not tried the porridge before so that’s something else I want to try when I am in the neighborhood next.


Tuck Kee’s well known dishes include the salt baked fish and black pepper venison. The fish was unavailable hence we settled for the black pepper deer ribs. It was served with a fruit & vege salad on the side. The black pepper taste was subtle but the gravy was really flavourful. Liked the fact that they served ribs which had a bit of fat lining the meat so that it was tender and juicy at the same time. Very well marinated indeed. RM 20 for about 5-6 ribs.


Since we couldn’t have their signature fish dish, the waitress recommended this other fish. I can’t remember what it’s called, but it’s steamed with various ingredients such as shallots, chillies, ginger etc. The fish’s texture was firm and nicely flavoured by the soy sauce based seasoning. Cost us RM30 for about 6 chunky pieces.


Finally we asked for a vegetable dish to balance out the 2 meats and we were recommended this stir-fried baby bok choy with mushrooms. RM 8 for our portion.

Food is above average here, in my opinion. They also have a very extensive menu so there’s loads to discover. Some dishes that caught my eye was “Braised Shark Lips”, “Garoupa in 3 flavours”, “Yin Yang Codfish”, “Claypot fish head” etc. Instead of serving peanuts, they served deep fried keropok (crackers) which was quickly eaten off by us. This place is also famous for their dim sum.
