Ming Kee Live Seafood – Fresh and Good Seafood
June’s makansutra dinner brought at us Ming Kee Live Seafood near Tai Seng MRT. There are two Ming Kee restaurant along the stretch, one is opened by the father, while the other is opened by the son. We tried the son’s restaurant (520 Macpherson Road) this time round. Dinner began with Steamed Boston Lobster with Garlic which is a very simple but very tasty dish.
We thought it was sharks fin soup initially (obviously we didn’t look at the menu) but were pleasantly surprised that it was Braised Crocodile Horn-Strip in Superior Stock. Very generous with the ingredients, thick crocodile skin and crabmeat were seen in my soup.
I thought the Smoked Duck Breast was nothing fantastic, perhaps I was never a fan of smoked ham, smoked salmon, smoked duck or anything smoked.
Neverthelessn, huge fat Jumbo Canadian Oyster won our hearts. It was steamed with preserved black bean, very fresh and flavourful.
Ming Kee is famous for its Triple Cooked Crab Bee Hoon. Cooked with the crab in a very hot wok, the very thin bee hoon were coated with a knockout sauce. It is rich and moist, with just the right amount of crab flavour and wok hei. Just a little salty that night.
We also had Steamed giant soon hock in HK style. The fish was firm and fresh. Guinness Sauce Short Rib was also good. The caramelization is key to making flavor-packed ribs. Dessert was Home-made Coconut Jelly which was similar to Kueh jagung (Corn cake). Light, refreshing and not too sweet!
Dinner here was good, very good quality seafood and the flavours were just right. Note that this restaurant does not accept walk-ins, so please remember to make reservation.
