I probably do not have to say much about the restaurant called Foo Mui Kee, which has been serving a unique and delicious food for many decades. In case you are new to Foo Mui Kee, walking into Soi Prachum from Surawong Road you would immediately notice the restaurant on your right hand side. You may also enter Soi Prachum from Silom side (Soi Silom 22). However, you will have to walk to the end of Soi to find Foo Mui Kee (~ 5 mins walk). The nearest public transportation is BTS Chong Nonsi station which is 5 mins walk away. Once walking into the restaurant you would immediately feel the atmosphere that resembles tea house in Thailand during 70's. The decor has been kept like this since the start of the business: old wooden tables and chairs.

Let me begin with this basic Bread & Butter, every time I give Foo Mui Kee a visit I have to order this back to back menu. I looked really really basic at first sight but the feel after taste was not that basic I must admit. This bread also went really well with Ox Tongue Stew: one of the best in town I believe. Tenderness with rich flavour with peppery scent, I could just have this every day (9/10).

Next in line was another of my favourite, Pork Chop. It was just a dish that had delicious taste in home-made style: rather light flavour it was. This one is 7/10 for me.

Tenderloin Steak Salad was also everyone favourite. The meat was soft, salad was fresh with dressing that had sweet + sour taste.

Stir-fried Bok Choy with Shrimp Ball was as well a good choice. Crisp vegetable with tasty shrimp ball. I must admit that it is really hard to find good shrimp ball these days. Most of them in the markets are mixed with large portion of flour to save cost. But not in this case (8/10).

Last one for the meal was Crab Fried Rice. I was not so impressed with this one as it was rather soaky though taste was good (5/10).
