Sum Kee – The Famous Tze Char Restaurant Has A New Outlet At Yung Ho Road
We’re pretty sure Sum Kee restaurant needs no introduction as many of us are familiar with their first restaurant at Telok Blangah which is always crowded. They have done so well that a second outlet has been established about a month ago at Yung Ho Road, just opposite SuperBowl Jurong. The menu is similar, but this new outlet offers more luxurious seafood items.
The Curry Fish Head ($26) is Sum Kee’s signature item. We were surprised by the size of the fish head, as it is big and very meaty. Do order some fluffy white rice to pair with the curry gravy. The rempah is grounded in-house, hence it is fragrant, and lemak enough without being too overwhelming. Red snapper is used, and the fish is prepared really well such that the flesh is smooth and tender. If you’re lucky enough, like us, you’ll get to indulge in fish eggs too! It’s so unusual to find fish eggs when you’re having fish head curry, but we found two huge fish eggs in ours. The curry also includes long beans, brinjal, lady’s fingers, and taupok.
The other popular dish is the Ultraman Chicken ($12/$18/$24) which is simply popcorn chicken coated with salted egg sauce. The sauce is very buttery and quite thick, but it would’ve been better if there were more sauce drizzled over the chicken. This dish is more like a snack, but the small pieces of chicken are so addictive, that we couldn’t resist popping one after another in our mouths.
The XO Sum Lor Hor Fun ($8/$15/$28) features flat white noodles with an XO sauce that contains ingredients such as dried scallops. The noodles are silky smooth, while the XO sauce is savoury with a hint of spicy twist. The beansprouts give this noodle dish a nice crunch, and there are slices of Chinese sausages to enhance the savoury taste. We regretted not ordering the $15 portion.
Sum Kee’s second outlet is not very accessible, and there are limited parking spaces. The entire restaurant is air-conditioned, and the place isn’t as rowdy and crowded as compared to their Telok Blangah outlet. If you prefer a modern environment which is more conducive to hold conversations over a meal, you should check out the second outlet.
