Famous "Slightly Overpriced'' Local Eateries Worth the Money?

I'm sure everyone heard about the famous Kay Lee Roast Meat who was sold for a whopping $4 million dollars..

Today I am going to introduce two of these famous eateries whose dishes are slightly on a pricier side cause of their popularity. First the famous swee kee fish head noodle house famous for their fish bee hoon soup. 

Swee Kee (Ka-soh) Fish-Head Noodle House
96 Amoy St
Singapore 069916

$3 is needed to pay for the pickles, one of the aunties who took our order -_-, gave super bad attitude, the rest were still kind. Can I mention there is pork lard given (forgot if its free-flow or not).

Whooping big bowl of Sliced fish soup bee hoon going at 
($24) for 3-4 pax, ($38) for 5-6 pax.
No we didn't add any milk in the broth, their fish head soup base is brewed for hours resulting the thick and tasty soup base.

Stir Fried Beef Hor Fun in Black Bean Sauce ($18)

Spare Pork Ribs ($18.50)
Super delicious honey pork meat good to go dipped in black sauce.

Bill came up to around 60 ++ for all of the dishes. Huge variety of dishes other than their famous fish head soup. Recommend to order their popular items on the menu.

Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint
125 Upper Paya Lebar Road
 Singapore 534838

This visit, prices expectedly increased (new owner bought it over for 4 million can be the explanation) even though many claims in the drop in standard ever since the old days.

Paid around 30++ for 2 pax for a platter of their charsiew, roast pork and duck + soup on the menu + our drinks and rice.

Their fourth outlet have expanded to Suntec City Mall. I guess despite the ''drop in standard'' my partner claims & the slightly pricier meal compared to eating char siew rice in hawkers, I would still pay for a meal here. 

Crowds and queue can be improved at both eateries if they kept the price tag low like old times, but there are still people that will pay to support and preserve these good old eateries before they die down in coming generations.
