I grew up in this small town of Kota Bharu, and Sun Hua has always been my favorite restaurant for chicken chop, and my favorite restaurant in town too!
It is a corner shop at a small lane called Jalan Ismail.
The place looked the same as it was 20 years ago when I was a regular, the shop still carries this old and rustic ambiance that’s only found in establishments that are from similar era.
The Chicken Chop with bread is their most popular dish, the bread does not come with the chicken chop so you’ll have to mention that when ordering. The Chicken chop and bread combo comes to only about RM 10, with the chicken chop being RM 8.50. Our meal for 2 that’s with 2 chicken chop, 2 bread and 2 canned drinks came to just slightly above RM 20.
What you get is a delicious chicken chop with thick brown gravy that’s unlike what you’ve tasted elsewhere. You’ve heard of Yut Kee in Kuala Lumpur right? In my opinion, Yut Kee is no where near when it comes to taste and quality, which I why I wasn’t overly impressed with my visit there but I digress.
Sun Hua’s chicken chop is astonishingly tasty and it’s as good now as it was 20 years ago. The crust is crispy yet very light, just a fine layer that’s enough to add to the taste but not distract you from the taste of the meal itself.
You can see the amount of praise on Foursquare for this restaurant.
If you’re heading to Kota Bharu soon, be sure to check out this place. You can’t miss it!
