The restaurant is well air-conditioned and have a comfortable ambiance. Having said that, every bits of this have been factored onto the price tags as well. At Kum Kei, the needs of splurging is needed to appease your hunger and cravings for some nice delicacies.

We had their Combo 2 Meats Noodles - Char Siew and Roasted Pork (RM 12.50). It has no difference compared to a conventional bowl of wanton noodles - noodles, kailan, topped with sprinkles of green onions and fried lard, but with the exclusion of the wantan. 

As the key of a great Hong Kong styled wantan noodles lies on the noodles, it is commendable that the chef has picked thin egg noodles, possessing a natural scent and springiness which we adored. Nevertheless, we are unsure whether the premium Jook-Sing Noodles, or some known it as bamboo kneaded noodles were used. Apart from that, considering the premium price tag the meal was accorded, the faint of alkalinity perceived on the noodles should not have happened.

The chef's guile in cutting the char siew ensured it was of topnotch quality, possessing a fair proportion of fatty and lean meat. Coating the char siew with honey furthered heightened its taste, making it almost second to none char siew in Penang. On the other hand, the roasted park was soft and tender, while the crispy skin letting out a crackling sound upon biting.

On the other hand, we also had their Wantan Noodles - Dry (RM 8.50). It had a bowl of broth with 5 pieces of wantan, and it was definitely a good cure for wantan lust. The wantan's filling was rich, having a fair share of pork and shrimp. The flavored broth was something to be craved for too.

We thought their wantan noodles were of a healthier version. It was skewed to more to lighter version of meal, yet preserving the very essence of a decent bowl of wantan noodles should possess. On top of that, the portion served was just fine, not to the extent giving you either an unfilled or bloated stomach.
