Today I will be sharing about Kedai Kopi & Makanan Mooi Mooi. So, what comes to your mind when you come across restaurant as such? Ordering dishes, served with white rice? Or is it Hokkien Mee?
Nope, I am going to recommend you guys a Chicken Rice Stall, and Kum Kee is the name. The guy whom you saw in the picture below is none other than – Mr. Bernard, the owner for the stall which is located somewhere in Kuchai Lama.
As usual, you can either eat it there or to take away. For Kum Kee, they’ve got two person to prepare for both dine in customers & take-away customers. As to why they need two person to do two different tasks, you will find out why as I share more.
P/s : As you can see from the picture, there’s this pink color shirt guy grabbing his own soup. (Self-service) You may need to do so if you are there later than 1200pm.
Whenever I decide to eat here, I will definitely come around 1100 – 1130am. First of all, there are limited seats available. Second of all, the crowd is CRAZY when it hits 12pm. Third of all, you wouldn’t want to miss this……
Yeah, roasted pork. Though they are selling Chicken Rice over here, but what that’s extremely good is their roasted pork. I usually ask them to prepare double portion, cut it thick, so that I can enjoy much more roasted pork in bigger pieces. (I don’t mind to pay more as its really good!)
The way they roast the pork, chicken or even ‘Char Siew’ is by charcoal (Over the fire). They prefer the traditional way of roasting instead of the modern way (By using oven). It doesn’t matter whether its modern or traditional, the most important thing is, IT MUST BE GOOD! Well, I believe there are definitely pros & cons in each ways of roasting, & the fact that they prefer charcoals, they definitely have their good reasons.
Yeah, what I can say about their roasted pork is EXCEPTIONALLY AWESOME! Just imagine, the skin is extremely crunchy, and the meat is tender. Not to forget, there isn’t much of the foul smell emits from the pork. Instead, I really enjoyed the taste of the skin as there’s a certain kind of aroma which I don’t know how to describe. Roasting pork can be very challenging, in the sense of, when you want the skin to be crunchy, the meat may be overcooked & it will turn out to be hard. Or when you want the meat to be tender, the skin may not be as crunchy. In fact, I heard of Chicken Rice stall owner frying only the surface of the skin on the roasted pork after it has been roasted, just to make sure that its crunchy.
Apart from their roasted pork, they’ve got quite good “Char Siu“ (Fork burn/roast after the traditional cooking method for the dish: long strips of seasoned boneless pork are skewered with long forks and placed in a covered oven or over a fire).
The “Char Siu” meat here is quite tender, with a the crunchy & sweet layer of roasted skin surrounding the meat. If you really want to enjoy this, please remember to mention this when you order, “Pun Fei Sao” (Direct translation – Half-Fatty-Skinny). For those whom don’t understand Cantonese, you must be wondering what in the world does this means? Well, the main thing is to get them to chop the meat of the region where it has the combination of fatty & lean meat. In fact, that is the more tender part of the pork, which give you a superb biting sensation. (P/s : Not for the health conscious people, I am supposed to be health conscious too. Sigh, what a temptation that I’ve yielded to.)
Another thing I would like to mention is their sauce. According to them, they’ve used 13 types (Its really an effort of which we should appreciate, but of course, up to individuals) of ingredients to produce the sauce & their concept is one sauce for all. You can ask them to provide more sauce to be mixed with your rice. But trust me, even without the sauce, the meat is already good. If you happen to enjoy dipping meat in chilly before eating (Just like me), I would suggest you to have a full bite without the chilly sauce first, so that you could enjoy the original taste.
Here’s the address & contact number, you can contact Kit to reserve you some roasted pork just in case you are coming from afar. Their business starts from 1100am till 400pm, but I suggest you to be there early.
Here’s the location. Just in case if you still have trouble looking for it, its located at the shoplot opposite the Four-Faced Buddha in Taman Gembira. Last but not least, for the pork lovers, do give it a try & you will never regret. Cheers!
