Yee Heong Restaurant is a great place to enjoy a Chinese meal. It is one of the Chinese restaurants in Campbell Street, Georgetown that not only serves dim sum for breakfast but also Chu Char for lunch and dinner.
Over a period of time, we have been having our lunch and dinner at this Chinese restaurant which is located right opposite the morning wet market. The menu is expansive, with plenty of Chinese dishes!
One of their signature dishes, Braised Lamb!
Yee Heong’s version of Herbal Chicken has a pleasing herbal aroma from the usage of much Chinese herbal medicine. The dish is popular for its nutrients, and is incredibly mouth watering as well!
We also savor many of their vegetable dishes. There was a lot of wok heatiness in the Sambal Brinjal dish and the flavor of the sambal was enchantingly fragrant. This dish is a delight to go with rice.
Another vegetable we ordered was the bitter gourd! It came with generous amount of half cooked egg, and the bitter gourd was cooked just right with a bitter aftertaste.
During our hearty conversation with the shop owner, we were recommended to try their Braised Lamb! It came in a claypot with the meat cooked with radish, carrot and black mushroom. Absolutely warming and bursting with flavor!
Besides that, we tried two fish dishes. The first was the Steam Fish Teochew style. The fish was cooked just right and the accompanying salted vegetables (kiam chye), chilies and sour plum added tinge of saltiness, spiciness and sourish to this dish.
The second fish dish is Yee Heong’s signature dish, and remains our favorite as well! The Hoong Siew Yue Tau (braised fish head) was delicious and the sauce has a hint of the smoky roast pork. The bean curd and the bean curd sheet soaked in the gravy added texture to this dish.
Next up was a simple stir-fried vegetable dish, Kailan flower with garlic. The crunchy stem was a delicious bite.
We never miss out on their ‘quick boil’ soup. The Spinach Soup with a combination of century egg, carrot and tofu was simply delicious!
On the last visit, we had an interesting ‘quick boil’ soup with a unique combination of Fish Skin with fresh mint leaves.
The soup, enhanced with the touch of mint leaves got working on our taste buds and only a few of us enjoyed the dish.
With the staggering varieties of breakfast and Chu Char dishes, one is bound to find something to eat from Yee Heong. Click here for the Map Location. There are several other old school style eateries nearby, with TekSen and Aik Hoe Restaurant just around the corner.
