pin kee restaurant

Yuen Yee suggested this place called Pinky (Tham?) or Binky for dinner. Since she’s the incumbent of Sunway, having made her bones here, we went with her for the famed buttermilk sotong.

I would vote for this little girl (being 7 years older allows me to say crap like this ;)) if she ever runs in the election.

Okay, here’s what we had:

pin kee venison

Black pepper venison

I loved this dish. It has a nice and suitably peppery taste to it (suspect it had a lot to do with the name of the dish).

pin kee kung pow pork

Kung pow pork

It’s pork with dried chillies. I love both. I have no complaints. I am a happy man. :)

pin kee mapo tofu

Mapo tofu

It’s tofu. I weep tears when I see tofu. I’m not a big fan of tofu and other Healthy Stuff (TM) to that effect. I had one though.

pin kee veggies

Vegetable with siew yuk (roast pork)

See above. The only redeeming factor is the roast pork fried with the veggies. smirk

pin kee buttermilk squid

Buttermilk sotong

Last but not least (fucking cliched) this dish was pretty good but I would have preferred the calamari (it looks more like calamari than squid to me) to NOT be deep fried before cooking.

The best part is that is only cost RM 11 per person for dinner!

  4. I thought it was the Pin Kee Restaurant in Melaka. Same name I guess. Btw, all those good dishes… 11 bucks per person is cheap!

  5. dude… are u getting “healthier”?? if u know what i mean.. hehhehe

  6. HB, I like that dish called Buttermilk Sotong. I won’t find it in San Francisco for sure and never knew Buttermilk use in Asian cooking which made this so special.

  8. The sotong look dry. I think they over fried it :p I love pork cooked this style. with lots of the buttermilk coating it. :P

  9. chrisblitz: Oh there is a Pin Kee in Melaka? Franchise or totally different place?
    Yup, I think it’s cheap coz they cater for students. There’s Taylors around the corner. :)
    shimmers999: Haha! No, I still don’t like tofu but I would eat a piece of it. :)
    Erica: Yup it’s pretty good, but come to think of it, if it wasn’t deep fried it would come off as a little soggy, so deep fried is good. :)
    chefmel: Nice! You have an eye for detail. It tasted alright was wondering if it would be better just cooked in the buttermilk though. =D
