Woh Kei, I only got to know about this particular place when I started working at Amex when one of my ex-colleague arranged a team dinner here. Ironically, I didn’t join that dinner as well and I’ve only been here much later when I moved over to Alam Damai.
The place had gone through one or two changes since my first time here, now being a bigger and better place, with al fresco dining at the lower floor and air conditioned dining on the upper level. Since we have run out of idea on where to eat for May’s sister farewell, she suggested to head to Woh Kai instead.
Dong Poh Yuk, one of the well known dishes around at this place. Layer of semi fat pork belly braised with lots of spices, made known by the famous scholar Su Dongpo. The sauce is sweet and best eaten with fried mantou.
Ginger Steamed Frog. I initially wanted to eat Kung Pow Frog but the family like the ginger steamed better. The frogs that were cooked were a bit small but still it’s fresh and feels like eating chicken.
Whenever we are eating with May’s sister, there must be a chicken dish because her sister is a big fan of chicken. Here at Woh Kei, we ordered Crispy Chicken with Almond. Basically it’s half a chicken that is done the crispy way and another half is merely an Ayam Penyet look alike with almond crusting on the side. I find the chicken pretty average though.
All the dishes on the table, halfway done. The price at Woh Kei is normally quite reasonable and they also have promotion like RM18/kg of crab as well. Other specialty includes Buddha Jump Over The Wall, Shark’s Fin Soup and others.
The whole meal cost about RM350 which I think is pretty alright for about 12 of us. Detailed pricing were not available as it’s May’s bro treat. However, I find that this place beats Hao Kee anytime!
