Restoran Kong Sai, Sunway Mentari

A colleague recently told us about how Kong Sai has been serving good food at reasonable prices. Since I'm always on the lookout for good food, the plus point of having it at reasonable prices is too irresistable!
Kong Sai has 3 outlets, the main branch is located in Paramount Garden whilst the 2nd branch is at Puchong. They have recently opened a third outlet at Sunway Mentari (opposite Tasty Pot Steamboat). We decided to try the new outlet since it is air-conditioned.
The steamed chicken is a house specialty at Kong Sai. The chicken was very tender and silky smooth. Drenched simply in soya sauce, this dish is a winner.

Another house specialty is the curry pork ribs. Kong Sai's version is very tasty with the somewhat thick curry enveloping the tender pork ribs. The curry goes very well with steamed white rice.

Another recommended dish is the Chicken Feet salad. At Kong Sai this appetising plate of sweet and sour flavours costs only RM5! This just about tops the cheapest Chicken Feet salad I've ever had anywhere!

The steamed lotus root soup is very sweet from the addition of sugar canes and cuttlefish. A bowl costs RM4.00 and comes packed with lotus roots and lots of peanuts!

Another type of steamed soup is the Pig Stomach with peppercorns. The soup is delicious and packs quite a punch with lots of peppercorns. This is the perfect soup for cold rainy days! This bowl of goodness costs RM9.00.
I also like Kong Sai's version of the perennial Malaysian favourite, the Kangkung Belacan. Their version has just a hint of spiciness which goes so well with the liberal addition of belacan. I actually found pieces of belacan in the vegetables. I like that everything is not completely blended. The pieces of belacan actually gives the simple vegetable dish quite a boost.

We also ordered the steamed egg which was very smooth. Our daughter likes this very much.A little miscommunication brought us this dish of fried egg omelette. Kong Sai is located at 25, Jalan PJS 8/17, Sunway Mentari, 46150 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
