Thumbs-up To Uncle Keong Delicacies (四眼强糖水之家)


The weather in Malacca was scorching hot, almost unbearable. The sun baked the earth with a vengeance, the blazing sun beat upon our backs as we braved the heat to get to a cool spot to rest.

I was exhilarated when icy cold desserts were served at Uncle Keong Delicacies. Specializing in premium ingredients such as Shark’s Fin, Bird’s Nest, Ginseng etc, at economical prices, this is one place you gotta check out when you visit Malacca.

Chinese believe that Lotus Seed & Lily Bulbs with White Fungus will lower the “heat” in our body system. Hence, having a nice bowl of Lotus Seed & Lily Bulbs with White Fungus (蓮子百合雪耳盅) @ RM6 was just perfect on a hot day.

Uncle Keong Eight Treasures (四眼强八寶冰) @ RM6 is not your ordinary bowl of Ice Kacang. It’s filled with all the goodness of Barley, Ginkgo Nuts, Red Jujubes, Ficus , Lotus Seed, Longan, Lily Bulbs & White Fungus. This ice shaven dessert has a unique taste & I love it!

For those who’re not familiar with Gui Lin Gao (龜苓膏), it’s a type of herbal jelly in Black, eaten together with honey. Gui Ling Gao is supposedly good for our complexion. Other benefits include improving circulation, reducing acne etc. It’s interesting to find a Menthol version of the herbal dessert here.

Seated together with me were a nice bunch of Filipino Bloggers, Ferdz, Albino, Ron & my pal, Doris, waiting for our next round of food to be served.

There aren’t many occasions where desserts were served before the mains, but I’m not complaining at all. In fact, timing was perfect as we needed to cool ourselves down before we could absorb more.

Picture speaks a thousand words! Just look at the bowl of Spicy Curry Chicken Noodle (香辣咖喱雞翼面) @ RM9.80. I’m a sucker of those bright orangey curry compared to those dull-coloured brown ones. Every single ingredient was perfectly cooked to my taste & the chicken was real tender.

I’m not exactly a fan of Misua, an Asian Flour Vermicelli. However, I was impressed with Uncle Keong’s “Misua” Soup with Shark's Fin & Mushroom (香菇魚翅面线湯) @ RM9.80. Though nothing special except for its ingredients, it’s definitely value for money with Mushrooms, Vegetables, Scallops, Pacific Clams & Shark’s Fin inside the bowl of noodles.

Thumbs up for the attractive & affordable pricing at this eatery situated along Malacca's renowned Harmony Street. For a healthier choice, head for Uncle Keong Delicacies the next time you’re in Malacca! Rating: ★★★★★

Uncle Keong was one of the food sponsors @ A Date With Bloggers At Melaka 2012. We’ll be off savouring at Eleven Bistro next, sharing the same owner. Thank you Lex, for being such a wonderful host & answering all my questions on the desserts!

  16. The curry does look spicy and the chinese belief is right that lotus seed and Lilly bulb lowers body heat. I am posting a dish with lotus root today.
