Kedai Makanan dan Minuman Zuan Kee

I'm still amused with restaurants that insist on calling themselves Kedai Makanan dan Minuman (literally Eating and Drinking Shop). In fact, "Eating Shops" are quite common in the Southern part of the country especially Johor Bahru. I've spotted a few in Singapore too. Poor English lah……
This is a long overdue post and our apologies to a reader, Catherine who suggested this place about a year ago. It was on our radar but we never got around to visiting the place until now.
We asked for suggestions from the friendly waiter and he obliged with a few house specialties. First up was steamed tilapia in a spicy chilli sauce (cheong cheng). The sauce was thick and dark and to be honest, looked threatening. Fortunately it was not as fiery as it had threatened to be and turned out to be pretty tasty. Thumbs up.
The crispy salt baked chicken was next and this got the thumbs up from none other than my mother in law who is quite picky about chicken dishes. Crispy outside but moist and tender inside. Very good.
The 'special' taufoo - fried pieces of soy beancurd and fish paste (?) served with a topping of mayonnaise. I'm no fan of mayonnaise and I think this dish would have been OK without the mayo.
The honey pork belly was sinful…..and good ! Lots of fat, lots of taste.
The four vegetable (sei tai tin wong) was tasty but lacking spiciness in the sambal. Overall, it was a pretty good introduction to this restaurant and we'll definitely be back to try more dishes in future.
