A Taste of Hakka at Chi Ka Yin, Bandar Puteri Puchong

  • SumoMe

Another introduction to Puchong restaurant! :) This time on Hakka food, one of the few available around this area. This place was recommended by Uli and upon entering the restaurant, I saw plenty of media coverage including newspaper publications as well as Ho Chak! on TV. Impressive!

Before the food was served, I ordered a refreshing honey lime drink.

The first soup of bitter gourd was one of the better ones that I’ve tasted. I am never a fan of bitter gourd or anything bitter for that matter, but this soup was boiled such that the bitter taste was really subtle. yet I felt the cooling effect after drinking the soup, which is really a win-win situation for me!

The braised duck was already appetizing just from the look of it. It was very homely, with smooth skin and soft flesh.

Of course, one must not miss the abacus which is a signature Hakka dish.

Hakka Fried Meat (客家炸肉) [RM8(S)| RM16(B)]


Yam Pork Belly (芋头扣肉) [RM8(S)| RM16(B)]

The spring roll was my favourite of the lot! Upon checking with the restaurant manager, I found out that the spring roll is indeed a best-seller! It was extremely aromatic, with crispy skin and lots of fillings of meat and vegetables combined together. This is definitely a must-order.

Too far to go to Ipoh for salted chicken? There’s always another option right here at Chi Ka Yin. :)

The salted vege fish was cooked in a way that eliminated the fishy smell while retaining its freshness. I enjoyed eating this very much.

Another recommended dish was the salted egg steam pork, which brought back memories of my grandmother’s cooking. Very traditional and homey.

Although there was no dish that screamed unique at Chi Ka Yin, I thought its uniqueness lies in the fact that it makes one feel like home, with traditional cooking methods, prepared fuss-free and healthily. Go try it out yourself. :)

    So this is Hakka food. No wonder my missus can make the best ngor-hiang (spring roll) – she’s Hakka. Oooo…the duck looks good but my missus doesn’t eat duck, so no duck in the house. :(

    Oh the braised duck does look yummy. Sometimes we don’t need the dishes to be exceptional but the home-cooked meal “feel” is the star, rather than the individual dishes.

    Glad you tweeted this oldie-but-goldie post of yours! :)
