Restaurant Kar Heong Chicken Rice @ SS 14, Subang Jaya
Restaurant Kar Heong has been around in SS 14 long enough to be gaining some reputation for their chicken rice, as well as few extended dishes from the chicken rice. Located at one of the shop lot in the SS 14, the shop welcomes customers from both front and back door. The front door is also where they flaunt their freshly steamed chickens and roasted pork. The standard meal offered in the Restaurant Kar Heong is nonetheless the Chicken Rice with optional add-on of beansprout which was indeed fatter and juicier since they use Ipoh’s produce.
Following that is the complimented soup to go with the chicken rice which tasted somewhat a little different from the usual complimentary soup elsewhere. Reason being, they also sell Ipoh Hor Fun which means prawns and prawn wanton would be one of the main ingredients used in this restaurant. As a result of that, the soup also acquires the sweetness and flavour of the prawns when cooking the prawns in the boiling soup.
If the soup appeals to you then try ordering them with wanton. Serves in two sizes (big and small) these prawn wantons are served with some vegetables in it too. This makes a perfect dish to order either for sharing or when you are not up for chicken rice.
Their chicken is nicely done with good taste and flavour but the texture lacks a little when it comes to a ultimately good steamed chicken. What’s usually chunky and crispy is somewhat mushy and soft. This however wouldn’t quite affect those who skip chicken skins.
Fan of chicken liver and chicken gizzard, please do yourself a favour and order some when having chicken rice here because they are amazingly fresh here. Prepared in such easy and simple way with some soya sauce and sesame oil while garnishing it with some spring onion, this one was super delicious.
The shop is not flourish outstanding but keep an eye on the signature. Also, parking should not be too challenging but lunch hours can be quite frustrating as well.
