Restoran Kar Heong @ Subang Jaya

29 05 2010

Mention steam chicken rice and the first thing that pops into my mind is slices of yellow skin steam chicken soaked with soya sauce. Restoran Kar Heong at Subang Jaya pretty much fits the bill.

From the outlook, the shop won’t strike you as a place that will fulfill your gastronomical appetite. But once you stepped inside, it is a whole different story altogether. Scores of people are seen waiting for tables while those who are already seated are busy enjoying their meal.

A plate of ‘tau geh’ or bean sprout (RM 4.00)  is a must to accompany any chicken rice meal. Here, the bean sprouts were thick and crunchy.

Since Kar Heong is famous for their steam chicken I was curious to find out how it fares. The meat was tender and full of taste as how you would expect a good serving of steam chicken to be. A whole chicken costs us RM 38 which can accommodate up to six people.

Their Char Siew (RM 36) was pretty good although it is not the best I have tried so far. Nevertheless the combination of sweet and salty taste accompanying the lean and fat pork meat was definitely above average.

Since their business is extremely good, it is advisable to go early to avoid the afternoon crowd.

Hi Nigel, thanks for the lovely photos. the food is nice but unfortunately the kitchen is not clean. I mentioned this to the boss lady but she did not take too kindly to my feedback. i’ve not been back to the place ever since. not sure if they have improved on cleanliness. your photo of the front do speak for itself actually.

Hi Sue. I ate there again last week and noticed that they received a grade A for cleanliness by the local council. It was prominently displayed next to their washroom. Thanks for your feedback.
