Updated 6 June 2009: We passed by here last week and noticed that Kai Yong Food & Beverage signaged has been replaced with Kedai Nasi Ayam Kam Kee. Not sure if it's the same operator, will find out when I have the chance.
I was wondering around Petaling Street area looking for stuff and I got hungry along the way. I was too lazy to walk further for a chee cheung fun fix with the current HOT wave going on in the city, so I dropped by this place called Kai Yong. If I remember correctly, my ex-colleague said this is one of the shop he patronises after school instead of Nam Heong. Since I always go Nam Heong, I decided to head for this Kai Yong instead, for a change. Kai Yong's shoplot has a very very tall ceiling which made the place looked roomy and airy. I sat at the side which is quite warm but cool down quickly. Thank goodness, I was virtually melting there.
As it was my first time there, not sure what to order... I just asked for poached chicken, small portion. The next thing I know... these appeared right under my nose...
Fuuuwahhhh... the "oil" rice, so old school... came in a bowl haha... got a plate of chicken PLUS ONE pork meatball in the bowl of broth LOL!!!! So happy... like kena (strike in Malay) lottery like that.
Looking at the rice, it's in a deep yellow hue... very very rich indeed. Made me feel very stuffed at the end of my meal. A little on the salty side since I'm more used to blander food.
The chicken, generous in portion, is not a smooth though but maybe because I've asked for breast meat. A little tough I would say but I'm ok with it. Ate them with tonnes of chilli sauce, blended garlic and ginger plus lots of dark soy sauce!
The meatball has bits and pieces of dried octopus which render a lovely fragrant it. The broth is nice and I don't think have MSG since I did not feel thirsty at all after lunch. Excluding the drink, the meal came to RM4.80.
The next time, I'm gonna order the beef brisket cos almost everyone asked for it and there isn't any left after I sat down not long. Some patrons asked for the broth to be served with their meatballs after hearing that they have ran out of brisket! This will be definitely on my must try list.
