Yong Peng’s foochow dishes…

I had a quiet Christmas this year, by visiting my in -law’s home in Seremban. The atmosphere over there was not as great as in KL , Penang or Melaka and you can f eel the Chinese New year mood rather than the yuletide. However, I had a good relaxing and peaceful long weekend over there and unwind, whereas my kid enjoyed the company of his cousins while my wife got a lot of catching up to do with her siblings.

On the way back, we thought of stopping at Yong Peng, which was an hour drive from JB. Yong Peng is a small town which is famous for its cookies and foochow food. We patronises Soon Kee restaurant, which was one of the well-known ones in Yong Peng.



Had some cups of refreshing chinese tea before the meal.


Vegetables is always one of the ‘must’ among the dishes we ordered. We ordered a ‘guai tao’, prepared light and steamed.


Here’s the famous dish among Foochow food and erm..which I called the foochow soup.  I still don’t know how to order this soup but the waitress always understand when I mentioned foochow soup… 🙂  Anyway, this may be the best one I’ve ever tried so far. It tasted even better when you drops some black vinegar onto it.


Had a delicious canto-style steamed fish. The meat is smooth and well, you feel healthy after eating this.

Restaurant Soon Kee is located at :- 80, Jalan Besar, 83700 Yong Peng, Johor.
