Hong Kong Street Old Chun Kee

Hubby and I joined FB friends for a fantastic evening of warm friendship and a sumptuous dinner organised by Chef Tony Tee (SG King Crocodile) at Hong Kong Street Old Chun Kee.

HK street

Hong Kong Street Chun Kee started in the 1960s at Hong Kong Street by a Mdm Leung. It was subsequently helmed by her son, the late Mr Loh Mun Hon, affectionally known as "Hon Sifu".


He had allowed all his disciples to set up their own stalls in the 80s, using his Hong Kong Street brand, as such, today, there are so many different HK St zhichar chains. This stall at Commonwealth Crescent is the stall that the late Hon Sifu had helmed pesonally prior his demise, due to cancer in 2009. Now this stall is helmed by another disciple, Chef Chan Chong You, who is proud to keep the HK Street food culture of his master "alive". - Chef Tony Tee

Black Pepper Croc  - the tailmeat is used   

Wondering how crocodile meat tastes like? The taste and texture is like a cross between chicken and pork.  According to the Health Promotion Board, crocodile meat is high in protein, low in cholesterol and saturated fat, compared to other meat like beef and pork.

The much anticipated surprise element of the evening - especially for all the ladies - Fish maw soup with Crocodile Horn Strip! Full of Collagen!

More eateries are offering crocodile meat, not as an exotic delicacy, but as a regular and basic comfort food due to its affordability now.

Thanks to owner, Chef Chan Chong You for preparing the yummilicious 8-course meal and "throwing in" his complimentary signature dish San Lao Hor Fun (三捞河粉) and dessert Special Yam Paste (Ngo Nee) with sweet potato (红薯芋泥).

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of his founding SG King Croc, each of us received a specially created, limited edition souvenir from Tony. It's a keychain with a real crocodile tooth!

  2. i have always been adventurous when it comes to food, and i am sure that Croc tastes a bit like alligator (something prepared often in Louisiana, but there it is usually fried and spicy). I only recently was able to taste bitter gourd and unfortunately, the dish was overpowered by it, otherwise, i liked it.
