To say I've grown up with Seng Kee is too tall a statement but I was there in its heydays of witnessing it expand to two shophouse space and cramming with tons of others under the shady trees on the pavement tucking into their signature mee sua. Those were the days where a random bird shitting would not get in the way of me and my bowl.
These days, they have expanding to a coffeeshop just doors away and taking up just a sign board to acommodate the extra crowds. Within the same coffeeshop you would find the likes of Western food, Satay and Cai Png.
Mee Sua ($6)
Their best seller with pigs organs in herbal broth and noodle but these days, it is so watered down, it was a huge disappointment.
Wishing it were the same as before.
Sambal Kang Kong ($9)
Hardly spicy, the vegetables were served lukewarm.
Pork Ribs ($10)
Definitely the best of the meal with saucy meaty bites.
JJ Liang Teh completely leveraging on our famous pandas - a laugh worthy moment.
A shadow of its former glory, Seng Kee has heaps to improve on. For nostalgia's sake and maybe the crab beehoon that looks so tempting, otherwise, it is really just another zichar stall.
