Kie Kee Chicken Rice @ PJ Old Town

9 09 2010

Once again, I made a trip down to Gerai Makanan Kie Kee stall at PJ Old Town to satisfy my cravings for a plate of chicken rice. I have blogged about this place before and hence, I won’t elaborate so much about it. This time around, we tried their roast pork or ‘siew yuk’ which was as good as their roast chicken.

Suffice to say, the meal was cheap and delicious. If I recall correctly, a normal plate of chicken rice should be around RM 3.50.

That’s pretty economical by today’s standard.

A trip to Kie Kee won’t be complete without ordering the famous Chendol from Weng Kee stall. Definitely one of the best Cendol I had so far.

If you are looking for one of the best chicken rice around town, head on down to Kie Kee Chicken Rice.

Heng Kee Chicken Rice @ Subang Jaya

20 07 2010

In these days when the cost of living is ballooning, it is hard to find cheap food around town. Hence, when my colleague told me that there is a stall at Subang Jaya selling chicken rice for only RM 3.50 per plate, I was more than eager to give it a try.

Heng Kee Chicken Rice is located along Jalan SS13/2 which is not too far away from the 3K Sports Complex at Subang Jaya. The stall is run by an elderly couple who I presume are husband and wife. Since the stall is erected with steel structure and zinc roof, do not expect any air-conditioning here. Still, the place is comfortable enough to eat despite the hot weather. On the side note, I had to go there twice to get some decent shots of their food due to the poor lighting condition.


I ordered the roast chicken drumstick with additional rice which costs RM 4.30. Despite the cheap price, Heng Kee does not compromise on quality. The taste is on par with some of the better chicken rice shop that I have been so far.

The rice was also flavoursome. Makes me wonder how they prepare all the dishes in a small cooking area. What’s more, despite being an elderly couple they can still managed to consistently prepare these food everyday.

The meat was tender while the gravy was sweet and salty at the same time. I find myself finishing the meal in no time at all!

After a quick chat with the friendly lady, I found out that the stall is opened from 7 a.m till 4 p.m. except Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday.

Sun Sea Restaurant @ Taman OUG

6 03 2010

I have blogged about Sun Sea Restaurant before this. Last week, I went there again for lunch. This time, we ordered the dried version of the pork mee. It came in a bowl of kuey teow noodle with black sauce and fried pork lard.

The soup is still one of the best I have tried so far.

I also tried the roast chicken rice which is equally good. The chicken meat is tender while the rice is cooked with chicken broth.

This is one of the best chicken rice I have tried so far apart from Kie Kee at PJ Old Town.

Kie Kee Chicken Rice… again

29 01 2010

There are a lot of nice restaurant to eat around Petaling Jaya. Some places warrant a second visit, or even third. However, in the case of Kie Kee chicken rice shop at PJ Old Town Food Court, I have lost count with how many times I have been there.

Perhaps what makes their chicken rice special is the tenderness of the chicken meat. Also, their black gravy sauce is very flavoursome which contribute to the overall taste.

I have also blogged about the yummy ice kacang sold by Weng Kee which is just a few shops away.

The richness of the gula melaka and coconut milk is a killer combination which makes the dessert so irresistible.

Cendol is served in tall glass while ABC ice kacang is served using a bowl.

Food Republic @ Pavilion

11 12 2009

I have heard so much about Food Republic before this but never got a chance to try it until today. Apparently, Food Republic is a modern food court concept originated from Singapore. I guess we are lucky to have the similar one here as well at Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur. There were many stalls available and I must say all of them look pretty appetizing.

I decided to try out Thye Hong’s famous fried prawn noodles (RM 7++) which came highly recommended by one of their staff there. The first thing I noticed was the texture of the noodles which is similar to those used in Asam Laksa. There were some gravy too which tasted quite alright. The prawns were fresh and flavoursome. After reading some Internet reviews, I just came to know that it is quite a well known in Singapore.

We also tried their Char Kuey Teow (RM 7++) . I have tasted numerous version of this famous dish and I must say this one is pretty good too. The cockles were pretty fresh and there was slight spicy taste to it.

I am also a big fan of chicken rice and when I stumbled across Sargent Singapore Chicken Rice, I knew I had to give this a try. The steam chicken was really smooth and soft. I must say that it is very well prepared and ranks among the best chicken rice I have tried so far.For RM 8, it is really worth the money.

Here are some quick snaps of the stalls…

New Restaurant Ipoh Chicken Rice @ Sri Petaling

21 11 2009

While driving from OUG to Sri Petaling I stumbled across the famous Ipoh Chicken Rice where its main branch is located at Jalan Gasing, Petaling Jaya. Apparently, the Sri Petaling branch has been around for quite some time but I didn’t realise it until then. The restaurant is packed with customers during lunch time but the service is nevertheless quite fast. I ordered the Steam Kampung Chicken which is their trademark dish.

The chicken was nicely cook. Combine with the flavoursome soya sauce gravy, the meal was totally out of this world.

The rice meanwhile was prepared using chicken fat which gives a nice aromatic taste to it.

We also ordered the pork ball which didn’t disappoint us as well.

The meal costs us RM 25 which wasn’t cheap but I guess good taste do comes with a price.

Oldies @ PJ Old Town

11 10 2009

I still fondly remember my mum buying a packet of chicken rice for me after getting my hair cut at PJ Old Town many years ago. The chicken rice stall was always packed with people waiting to get their stomach filled with their delicious roast chicken. While many things has changed over the years, I am glad that the stall is still around.

Famously known as Kie Kee Chicken Rice shop at the PJ Old Town Selera Makan, anyone staying around Petaling Jaya would know where to find it.

There are two good things which makes Kie Kee stands out from any other chicken rice shops. First, their recipe has always been consistent. When I had their roasted chicken drumstick today, the taste is exactly like how it was when I first had it. It is hard for any cook to prepare the same dish with the same level of consistency throughout the years. But Kie Kee is one fine example of how one can remarkably sustain the same standard all the time.

The other good thing about Kie Kee is the price. Nowadays with everything ballooning sky high, they are still one of the the cheapest chicken rice stall around. For two plates of chicken rice (one with drumstick) and an additional bowl of rice, the meal costs only RM 7.60. Anyone will be hard pressed to find meal that cheap nowadays.

The other favourite dessert at PJ Old Town Selera Makan is the chendol & ice kacang store. Service is very prompt as the owner will quickly walked up to the customers asking for their orders once they sat down. I can only guessed that their gula melaka (palm sugar) is somewhat different from the rest. It is not overly sweet yet they manage to ice blend a bowl of chendol or ABC with a good taste of palm sugar that packs a punch.

The shop name is called ‘Gerai Minum Weng Kee’.

Pay a visit to this place and you will be surprise how old school eatery stalls are still a crowd puller despite fancy restaurants mushrooming on the other side of the town.
