Kedai Koon Kee Wanton Mee @ Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur

Better known as 冠记 in Cantonese to the locals, Kedai Koon Kee is located in the midst of Kuala Lumpur's most well-known food street, Jalan Petaling (Chinatown). It is well-hidden behind the throngs of stalls that lined the heritage tourist site, infamous for pirated clothes, accessories as well as bootleg movies. Try looking out for the prominent chinese wordings on the tin roof (as seen in below picture.)


Kedai Koon Kee is famous for its Wanton Noodles (RM5.50 for large), served with well-marinated roasted pork, crunchy veggies and wantons with generous amount of fillings. The noodles were slightly undercooked and greasy, but nevertheless possesses the chewy "Q-factor" and delectable.


Besides the noodles, they are also known for their Prawn Dumplings (RM12.00 for 8). Juicy fillings made with minced pork and prawn, wrapped with a thin layer of soft dumpling skin. Oh! And the soup has relatively low MSG too.


Although the restaurant looks tattered and run-down, don't be fooled by its exterior for what awaits is the legendary Koon Kee Wanton Mee.
