Weekend Eats- For Kee, Common Ground

Veronica and I wanted to catch up over quiet, extended brunch so we decided to go to common ground. They have expanded their menu since my last visit to include burgers!

The fresh beef burger was a delightful assembly of homemade beef patty, a slice of grilled pineapple and lettuce with homemade sauce. The bun was crispy on the outside and airy and pillow-soft on the inside; the beef patty was juicy and flavorful. A bite into the burger unleashed a barrage of flavors; the sweetness and tanginess of grilled pineapple on top of the patty, the hint of spiciness in the homemade sauce; the sharp distinct flavor of tiny cubes of chopped onions mixed in the patty (on top of giving a good crunch)..mmmmm.. The burger was every bit satisfying and pretty filling, we decided to walk it off by strolling around my hood.

We took a long detour around POHO, Nana who’s behind  the popular Teakha had opened a new place called Plantation

I love their next door neighbor; never quite figured out what they do thou (I only have a picture I took of them at night). Down the road is the Austrian cafe Loisl cafe, I love hanging out at the cafe coz it really makes me feel like I’m in Vienna!

A picture took awhile back on a visit at loisl with the Jann sisters :)

We continued down pound lane staircase to near where magnolia is, when Veronica suggested checking out For Kee, yes we were both very full from brunch but getting hot juicy satay beef sandwich sounded irresistible.

For kee is a Cha Chan Teng who had made a name for itself for its pork chop rice but what we were craving for that day was their satay beef sandwich. The aroma of freshly toasted bread, satay sauce and stir fried beef was alluring. We almost forgot about taking pictures before eating.

The beef was tender and the satay flavor was prominent without overshadowing the flavor of beef. Even though the beef was slightly oily (it is satay sauce afterall), the oil did not affect the crispiness of the bread which was toasted to perfection- it was golden brown crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. Veronica was bummed that the miscommunication between the waiter and the kitchen cost us our caramelized onion, we could only imagine how the the smoky, sweet onions adds richness and texture to our already soul warming satay beef sandwich. Veronica said I have to come back and try their pork chop!!! After trying For Kee’s satay beef sandwich (which was delicious), I can only imagine how good their no.1 signature dish- pork chop is…. Looking forward to re-visiting when I am less stuffed!!!

    • Thanks Fe and welcome to HK! Am really glad that you enjoy reading my posts 🙂 I never knew blogging takes so much work but it’s all worth it 🙂 their website looks so cool! now i finally know what they do!!

  1. The aroma of freshly toasted bread, satay sauce and stir fried beef was alluring. I just had breakfast. You are honestly giving me double feelings right now—hunger, for everything you post, and weird stomach churning, at the uncomfortable thought of eating right after breakfast. Hahahah ❤

    What is that piggy? Is it your piggy? It's so cute.

    And the bath tub? LOL. Seriously, one of the most memorable things I've seen this month.

  2. ooo, missing the caramelised onions is almost unforgivable! >< I can eat carmelised onions on its own….can't imagine how much it'd enhance that beef sandwich!
