Have you had lunch? Working in an office job, it’s always a question on what to have for lunch. Going to the same old coffee shops or restaurants sometimes can just be too bored for good. Luckily, this time we had a new place to try out! It was this restaurant that serves delicious Village Chicken known as Restoran Kong Sai in Bandar Puteri Puchong. Highly recommended by a colleague, we had to reach there earlier to avoid the crowd. Guess what we saw inside? An interesting signboard that said “Be Silent”.

Be Silent, or else..
I thought it was really amusing to see it in a restaurant. Almost reminded me of a library. But of course, I assure you, the restaurant was nothing but silent. It was bustling with business and people who were too busy to notice the signboard anyway. We placed our orders and took some recommendations from the waitress.

We asked for a plate of Village chicken for 4 persons and this was the portion we had. It’s not exactly big I suppose, because we ordered a number of other dishes as well. The chicken had bright yellow skin which was smooth and shiny. I loved the chicken meat which was smooth and tender despite it being village chicken.

And don’t forget the sauces that came with the chicken! A mixture of ginger, cili padi and soy sauce – very appetizing and flavourful.

There was an option for either white rice or oily rice, so I opted for the unhealthy one. Seriously, chicken rice is NOT chicken rice if it’s not eaten with oily rice.

Some other dishes we had include the Sausage Omelette (Lap Cheong dan) that was recommended by the waitress. I love ‘lap cheong’ and I think it goes well with just about anything! The egg turned out to be fragrant and the portion of sausage was pretty decent.

Another recommendation by the waitress was Chicken Feet Salad. I once had similar dish in China a few years back, but I never thought it’s sold here. Being a cold dish, the chicken feet was deboned and marinated with lime, chilli, onion and vinegar, giving it a sour and spicy taste. I personally enjoyed it for it was pretty appetizing and the chicken feet skin was springy and crunchy.

The Braised Yam with Pork (kau yuk) came with thick and flavourful gravy which was enveloped by the aroma of yam. I loved that the yam was braised long enough to be soft with melt-in-your-mouth texture, while the pork had half a layer of fat that was sinful but good. This was a very filling dish and went very well with rice.

Last but not least, some vegetables to balance our meal. We had the Beansprouts with salted fish. Not something to shout about, with barely-there salted fish.

Restoran Kong Sai is situated in a row of shops with not many restaurants nearby, hence it’s not such a busy area. Parking was also not an issue to us. Since it’s also opened at night, I’ll definitely be back again and bring Saucer with me! Our lunch for 4 persons cost RM50 including drinks.
