Kajang’s Famous Hot Soup at Restoran Kee V, Sungai Chua, Kajang
There are two famous food in Kajang Selangor; Satay and Hot soup.
Hot Soup? What hot soup?
Hot soup or spicy soup is cooked with pork broth with pepper and the exact history of it is unknown. However, there are plenty of hot soup speciality restaurants in Kajang.
To find the best is always good to get recommendation from a local. My best friend, Tony used to stay in Kajang and he recommended a few but at the end, we went to Restoran Kee V.
Restoran Kee V is located at Sungai Chua and it is just minutes away from Kajang town. The restaurant is quite easy to locate and parking is never an issue.
As we reached there, we took our seats and Tony made the order. He know what’s the best food to order.
The first dish was Stir fried beansprouts with salted fish. This is a popular Chinese dish. The beansprouts were crunchy. Even though its stir fried with salted fish, it was not really that salty. Taste was just right. It compliments each other. With sprinkles of chopped chillis, it added a little bit of spiciness onto this dish.
Steamed Beancurd with oyster sauce was next. For a dish like this, it will depends on the quality of the beancurd (tau fu) and the taste of the oyster sauce. A good quality beancurd will have a very smooth texture. The freshness of the beancurd plays an important role as well. With sprinkles of fried shallots and spring onions, this dish was pretty good. Oyster sauce blends in well with the beancurd.
Claypot Chicken with Chinese Special Wine. Another popular Chinese dish. This particular dish was strong in taste. The chicken blended very well with Chinese special wine. A little bit of saltiness which is common in this particular dish, the chicken was tender. Loved this.
The star of the day would be the hot soup. The soup itself is hot and slightly spicy. Drink the soup with the pork, it will taste better. I don’t really mind adding more black pepper into the soup but it depends on personal preferences.
The food at Restoran Kee V was nothing fancy but they are comfort food! Service was good and a gentle reminder that the place was not air conditioned. Thus, it might get a bit hot when drinking the hot soup but it is all worth it as the food prices were reasonable. The total bill came to lesser than RM 50 and I don’t mind coming to this place again.
