Chan Thoong Kee @ Imbi KL

When you think of chicken shredded hor fun, i bet you will think of Ipoh. But if we are in KL and are craving for this, where should we go?
Let's go to Chan Thoong Kee! ("CTK")
CTK is tucked in the middle of Imbi, and located in the corner old shoplots. CTK has been well established for many years and has branches in Jalan Hang Lekir and SS2, PJ. It offers a variety of local foods, and the famous ones being Ipoh Hor Fun and Fresh Water Wantan.

I feel the shop is a bit of old-style and reminds me of my hometown. Do expect crowds during lunch hour were attentive and prompt.

Walls hanging frames of the newspapers review and awards received by the owner for his charity bit...

ManMan and I ordered 白果腐竹薏米 - Barley Ginkgo wif Beancurd sheets
RM3 per bowl
I always ordered this during each visit as i found it very tasty, with the rightful amount of ingredients used
I bet they have boiled the desserts quite extensively, given the stickyness of the barley drinks. The ginkgo nuts were also very soft.
Something i look forward to boil in coming weekends....


Flat noodles with shredded chicken and prawns in clear soup

HorFun - i think is directly from Ipoh as it was very smooth. Somehow they said horfun from Ipoh taste good because of the water resource from the many hills there.
Prawns - very succulent.
Shredded chicken - very tender.
Soup - very clear and sweet soup, with hints of shrimps. I know a lot of MSG was added but no one cares anway......
Result - a very good bowl of Ipoh Horfun which is among the best in Klang valley.
Price - RM5 per bowl

We also ordered a plate of bean sprouts. Very crunchy. From Ipoh too? Not sure la....

Overall a satisfying lunch. You may try this if you feel to have a kinda light meal. The fresh prawn wantan horfun costs RM6 each. I have tried this before in previous visits and it was not bad. They also serve steam chicken, double boiled soup, pork balls and chicken rice. You may have your choice if you plan to visit this shop. No need to travel all the way down to Ipoh for this superb local food!
