Review of Restaurant Kong Sai, Mahkota Cheras

Restaurant Kong Sai has a total of 6 outlets in Klang Valley. They specialize in chicken rice and Chinese food. I had the opportunity to try out their famous dishes at Bandar Mahkota Cheras outlet.

01

Menu @ Kong Sai

 

My friend and I went for lunch. The menu was simple and offered a good range of Chinese food.  I ordered their famous steamed chicken, watercress soup, lettuce along with garlic and chives omelette.

02

Steamed Chicken

We did not have to wait long for our food even though it was a little crowded at that point in time. To be frank, I did not have high expectation on the dishes especially the famous steam chicken.  Anyway, I liked it.  The chicken was fresh, tender, definitely juicy and appetizing. The chili sauce served here was really good.   One could taste the right amount of garlic and the sauce was not too spicy or sweet with the right amount of acidity. I can safely say that not many restaurants can make this sauce so well. For me, the chili sauce played an important part in a steamed chicken dish.

04

The watercress soup was tasty too. It was boiled with some chicken pieces and had a good aroma. It tasted almost like home-cooked soup. Nowadays good soups are hard to find.

03

 

The lettuce had the right crunchiness and not oily. Lastly, we had omelette with chives and garlic. The omelet arrived looking very green. I was skeptical to try it at first but after a few bites, it was delicious. The crunchiness of chives worked very well in an omelet.

05

The food that we ordered was for two people however the portion here was generous enough to feed more than two. I would say that the food is good. It is an air-conditioned restaurant so it is comfortable to dine here with families or friends. You can find the restaurant very easily as it is located along one of the main streets in the area.

How would I rate them? The atmosphere 3.5/5, Service 4/5, F&B 4/5.

Restoran Kong Sai, 57 & 59 Jalan Temenggung 11/9, Bandar Mahkota Cheras, 43200 Kajang, Selangor.

Review of Restoran Fei Wong, Cheras

Restoran Fei Wong is located at Bandar Mahkota Cheras, and I’ve been here for quite a number of times. It’s a Chinese kopitiam and serves a variety of food. Expect to wait for a little while as it can be a bit crowded during weekends.

01

So what do they have here? Well, they actually offer quite a good variety of food. I was here on a Sunday morning, so this is what’s available; Penang char kueh teow, pork noodle, fish ball noodle, fish paste noodle, western food, pan mee, Kampar mee, curry mee, pork ball noodle, chicken rice, wantan mee and so on. Of course, drinks and roti bakar are also available here..

06

Curry Mee

We had curry mee, spicy dry pan mee and western breakfast. The curry mee is really good. The curry is rich and also, spicy enough. It had chunks of chicken meat, and is quite a decent size for a breakfast portion. I couldn’t stop finishing the curry gravy. It’s RM5 per bowl, which is well worth it.

Pan Mee

04

Fish ball soup

The spicy pan mee was served with a bowl of fish ball soup. This is good as well, but is a bit pricier than the other dishes. Like the name suggests, it is spicy! The anchovies are really crunchy, which blends well with the tangy noodles. It also came with crunchy mushroom, which is a perfect match. Although I opted not to have the pork bits, they did not substitute it with another ingredient such as eggs, which is pretty normal at other restaurants. Anyway, it was a good dish, priced at RM5.70

05

Western Breakfast set

The western breakfast consists of a piece of white bread (toasted), a fried egg, coleslaw, fries, a sausage and ham. Although most of the items here are fried, it’s not oily or greasy at all. The fries are tiny but quite crispy. This will cost you RM4.80.

Overall, it’s a good place to have a quick meal here. It offers a wide variety, and most of the items are freshly prepared. The price is affordable too.

How would I rate them? The atmosphere 3/5, Service 3/5, F&B 3/5.

Review of Green Talk Mahkota Cheras

Green Talk is one of the pioneer organic vegetarian restaurants in Bandar Mahkota Cheras. They have been in business for about 5 years now. Organic vegetables are grown without pesticide and therefore good for health hence the reason why these restaurants are popping up everywhere.

01

Green Talk

I was eager to try out this restaurant so I came here for dinner with friends. This place was nearly full but we managed to get a table and seated almost immediately. They have a good variety of offerings from fried rice, lei cha, noodles, spaghetti, snacks and so on. They also have a good range of fresh fruit juices.

03

Apple + banana + cucumber juice.

02

Apple + pineapple + beetroot juice.

I know I had to try the nasi lemak which was the featured item in the menu. My friend had the claypot tofu and steamed stuffed cabbage. We ordered some interesting drinks from the fresh fruit juices menu. The nasi lemak was good, which was rice served with greens, vegetable curry, fried tofu and sambal. The fried tofu was good too as it was coated with oats which were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

04

Nasi Lemak

The clay pot tofu looked really good, as it had lots of vegetable, mushrooms, tofu and corn. The taste was okay but it would have been better with a bit more sauce.  The portion of tofu was inadequate.  It would have been better with more tofu though plus this dish was served with brown rice.

05

Steamed rolled cabbage

A generous portion of steamed rolled cabbage was served. The filling consisted of vegetables and tofu. It was very fresh and full of greens. This dish was served with a green dip and it tasted like basil based sauce. I ended up having it with some sambal. The portion of the food was sufficient.

07

The fruit juice that we ordered was very refreshing and interesting. One of it was apple + pineapple + beetroot. It was actually quite good and we realised quite a number of other customers ordered the same drink as well. Another drink that we had was apple + banana + cucumber. This drink was quite refreshing.

The service was efficient and staffs were generally friendly. Overall it was a good dining experience especially if you are into organic vegetarian which is obviously healthy. You can also buy organic products ranging from tea to beans to flours at this restaurant.

How would I rate them? The atmosphere 3/5, Service 3.5/5, F&B 3/5.
