But before you start making lunch and dinner plans, here’s one to get the ball rolling. Kien Kee Sup Pedas Ayam Kampung (or direct translation would sound like “Kien Kee Village Chicken Spicy Soup”) is located behind the Post Office in Seri Kembangan.

The places opens every morning at 9:30am, closes at 3:00pm and opens again in the evening from 6:00pm till 9:00pm. So if you’re up for breakfast, lunch or dinner … they’ll be more than happy to have you. So what’s the specialty in this place?

Try their Sup Pedas (Hot soup or lat thong).

Also known as lat thong (hot soup) in Chinese, this clear soup gets its distinct warming and spicy taste from the use of crushed black peppercorns. The soup is spicy enough to tingle your senses but not burn your mouth. The soup is also sweet tasting from the use of an assortment of pork meat, stomach and intestines. The owner claims it is useful in alleviating coughs.

Next, also try their “Fa Tiu” Chicken. Served in a claypot, the tender chicken pieces are coated with a thick and slightly sweet soy sauce, which goes well with a bowl of white rice. The addition of “Fa Tiu” wine just before serving adds an alluring aroma to the dish.

With that much meat consumed, one must strike a balance. Thus … don’t forget to forget to order some vegetable dishes, albeit a simple one. Like the one I had below ….

    OK… of all places, Sri Kembangan is one which I need to utilise GPS. My friends always asked me to go there for the Hakka dishes and more.
    But due to the proximity of this area from PJ and the horrendous traffic, I only come here once in a blue moon 🙂

  2. J2Kfm Said,

    Yes, this one. Saw from TV shows before, but somehow Seri Kembangan-Serdang sounds like soooo far away places to me.


  3. Jobless Girl Said,

  9. Mandy Said,

    I started to eat there since they open in year 199x. For over 10 years me and my families and friends frequently having our meal there whenever we travel to Kl. The price started from RM4-5 per person(in year 199x), and now double up to RM10 person!
    I think during the father’s time the soup and the chicken was very nice. Now the taste is so diff!
    I went there again yesterday. The place still very old and not so clean, but i was expecting good food even i saw the price is RM10/person! There are not much customer, I wonder…, but then I understand why. The man who serve us keep pushing us to order more, we were only 7 adults, but he insist us to order 6-pax soup and 6-pax chicken, and he mentioned the portion were very small. At last I order for 4-pax each, plus some vege and taufu, and it cost me about RM140!
    Imagine a bowl of RM40 soup and RM40 chicken, what is the size of food and chicken you were looking? so small portion, and not worth at all. The soup was tasteless, the chicken was like only cover with dark soya sauce, and really as he mentioned, very small portion. Perhaps will need to spend over RM200 at this small eatery shop to fullfill 7 people’s meal!
    My advice is, don’t waste your money there if you’re looking for tasty food.
    For over 10 years I’ve been there with lots of good memory, I’m sad to say that this is the end of it, and I will never go back there again for the rest of my life!
