“Fai Kee” Legacy?
Let’s go try a sub-branch called Restaurant Sun Fei Kee which is rumored owned by the son of the original Fai Kee (known for rich fish broth). We’re quite sure that any Ipoh-lang would have heard of “Fai Kee” (at the time of writing there are 3 Fai Kee in Ipoh), but let’s not talk about them this time round. We’re sure you’ve been bogged down by thousands of sharing on social media about varieties of “hidden food gems” in Ipoh. There’s always a new cafe around the corner or what we like to call a “newly discovered” traditional foods or even newer fusion type cuisine. We wouldn’t say it’s recent but let’s talk about some ‘new foodie cafes’ that have been available since April 2016 in Ipoh Town.
A Stone’s Throw Away From M Boutique Ipoh
Randomness is just so like our family members where we spontaneously want to go for lunch. We are getting tedious eating the same food every day in our cafeteria. So it’s off to Restaurant Sun Fei Kee which is just opposite of our M Boutique Ipoh. In general, “Sun Fei Kee” actually originated from Fai Kee. In general, it coincidentally emanates at Green Hill with their second outlet at Ipoh Stadium’s Food Center.

Sun Fai Kee offers slightly more than the original outlet. Comes with an updated twist on the taste since they are famous for Fish Head Noodles. Oh, you could opt for without evaporated milk in their clear rich broth. And as such, since they are famous for Fish Head Noodles. So, it was mandatory to order it (you can select the type of noodles too!). For the less discerning, we opted for Fried Dory Fish (no bones!) with Evaporated Milk. Moreover, we Drunken Chicken Noodles, and Tom Yam Fish Ball Noodles. In addition, we also order their sumptuous Fried Pork Beads as our accompaniment. Not just that, I also order my favorite Fried Pork Beads Noodle with Preserved Salted Vege and a little bit of evaporated milk (as I prefer the less milky taste).
Worth Every Penny at Restauran Sun Fei Kee
Overall, the meal is delicious and satisfying as all of us are incredibly satiate with their sourish soup which makes the dish very appetizing ending up with much of the soup going into our tummies! Mind you, we are small eaters as opposed to some of our family members who were not present during this review. We spent RM53.50, all in all, about RM9.00 per person which we would say was rather reasonable. r the years, through hard work, passion, blood and sweat, including 3 outlets later (all with a different twist in style) this bowl of fish broth should be deemed worthy of a heritage that last for generations to come.
