Hong Kee Restaurant @ Hatyai

We were famished after touched down at Hatyai and settled at the hotel circa 2pm+. Recommended by our driver, we had our late lunch at Hong Kee Restaurant at Thammanoon Vithi Road which is a few streets away from our hotel.

The no frills restaurant was spacious and airy, serve normal dai chow food. The woman (the lady boss I assumed) who took our order can speak fluent Hokkien and Mandarin.

Fresh ingredients displayed right in front on the restaurant.

 

We took most of the recommendations from the lady boss and these were what we had~

Tom Yum Seafood

Pipping hot with a lot of ingredients. The broth had great flavor and strikes a perfect balance of sourness and hotness for me but mom and sis found that it was too sour for their liking.

Braised Pork Trotter

Highly recommended by the lady boss which turned out to be the least impressive dish 🙁 The humongous pork trotter was braised till soft and  fall off the bone however it was a tad too fat and the gravy was too gluey.

Deep Fried Pork Knuckle

Yes, another pork dish =.=”  but this defeated the previous dish hands down. Lovely crackly skin sheathing tender meat & melt-on-tongue fats, we had no problem gulping it down in jiffy 🙂

Thai Style Steamed Grouper

This steamed fish was embraced with the kicking factors! Submerged in an appetizing spicy and sour broth, the chili packs a fiery punch and the garlic gave a nice aroma and flavor which really complemented the flaky fresh fish.

Stir fried Green Dragon Vegetable

Simply stir fried with garlic gloves, the vegetables still retained their crunchy and sweet nature.

Total bill was RM 200++ included food, drinks and white rice for 6 adults + 2 kids.
