Best Chicken Rice - Restoran Kong Sai, Dataran Mentari, Sunway
After meeting Kong Sai Chicken Rice in many take-aways courtesy of my wife, I decided to meet them in person. Alas it was bad timing. They were closed on the Monday I went. My persistence paid off on a Sunday evening!
Golden skin with a layer of fat, full-bodied and firm flesh with very tasty meat to boot. All this with a great sauce to top it off. They menu spread has variety and reflects their hawking days in Paramount. Though the street stall has given way to a shop and over time wings sprouted and they are serving more contented customers in Mentari, Subang and Puchong.
The rice when mixed with the herbs and spices infused oil from the sauce is so tasty and aromatic. Really a luxurious version of the oil and soy sauce of yester years.
Scoop this sauce on to the chicken meat and let its herbs-and spices-laden sauce bring the best out of the chicken. Contents (coriander, spring onion, garlic, ginger cooked in soy sauce and oil).
Kei Chi and Dong Quai Chicken. I do not like the overdone chicken. But I like their overdose of overpowering herbs.The chicken came out tasting great! And the soup was great tasting too.
Who can resist "water egg"? Smooth and great tasting, rich and creamy.
The Kong Sai Stuffed Tofu was plain Jane. Still a good side-order when there is enough people to share. The stuffings were solid and packed with meat and spring onions.
