Restoran Sek Yuen

Time Out Malaysia Visitors Guide - - KL & SURROUNDS -

313 & 315 Jalan Pudu, KL (+603 9222 9457/+603 9222 0903/ Face­book: Restoran-Sek-Yuen-1948Jalan-Pudu). There’s no writ­ten menu at this old­style restau­rant in Pudu, and not many of the staff speak English. Don’t worry, mud­dle through spec­i­fy­ing your pref­er­ence (rice or noo­dles, pork, chicken, fish, prawns), let the staff rec­om­mend dishes and you’ll be more than fine. They just don’t make kitchens like Sek Yuen’s (100 per­cent fired by wood) any­more, nor the de­lec­ta­ble items that come out of it: crackly fried pieces of fish (or a whole spec­i­men), cov­ered in a sweet and sour sauce that’s not the least bit cloy­ing; kai lan stir-fried with gar­lic that’s so sweet and fresh you’d swear it was just pulled from the gar­den; a savoury egg and crab con­coc­tion to spoon into let­tuce cups and eat with a driz­zle of black vine­gar; steamed pork belly lay­ered with yam that evinces a five-spice flavour. There’s a rea­son this place is still packed af­ter more than 50 years. Credit cards ac­cepted. Tue-Sun, 11.30am-2.30pm; 5.30-9.30pm. $$$
