[Non-halal] Ming Kee Porridge 銘記粥品 in SS2 serves a mean bowl of wonton noodles.
Replacing one lot of the former Kamdar shop (IYKYK) in SS2, Ming Kee Porridge is one of the newest eateries in the popular commercial square.
Ming Kee Porridge serves porridge, noodles as well as rice bowls with roasted meat as one of its main featured ingredients.
Ming Kee Porridge in SS2
While most seem to rave about their porridge selection, we were mainly interested in the roasted meats and wanton noodles on that particular visit.
You could pair your Dry Wanton Noodles with roasted duck leg, chicken, or siew yoke – but we opted for Char Siew (RM14), as they looked pretty enticing on the display shelf.
Springy noodles at Ming Kee Porridge
Let’s talk noodles! The wanton noodles here are among the better ones in PJ in our opinion.
The noodles had a good bite (almost al-dente) and were springy (QQ) – very similar to the ones Max tasted in Hong Kong (sans the dark soy sauce and a bit thicker than the HK counterparts).
The dry noodles were generously slathered with the soy sauce mix – which was not too salty despite the dark colour.
The char siew was meh
Ming Kee Porridge seems to take some influence from HK cuisine.
The char siew which came with the noodles were, unfortunately, underwhelming as they were tough and lean – which is similar to the ones in HK (under-seasoned and too lean, in our opinion).
We believe they used the pork shoulder for the char siew – which is not the best cut in our view.
Hence, we recommend pairing your wonton noodles with another type of roasted meat.
Shrimp wonton soup was excellent!
The Shrimp Wonton Soup (RM16) here was excellent, though. The dumplings were huge as they contained a whole prawn (fresh and juicy) as well as minced pork.
The filling was very well-seasoned and tasty, and the dumpling skin was silky smooth.
While the soup is peppered with what we believe are dried shrimp roe (another HK influence?), they don’t really add much flavour to the soup.
Roasted duck rice
The roasted duck rice (RM10.50) here was pretty decent too. The duck was tender with a good hint of herbal taste.
The rice is served with some greens and a whole boiled egg.
Overall, the springy dry noodles and plump dumplings are the main stars here. However, we thought the char siew was a bit too dry and hard.
We will return to try their porridge.
