Klang Ki Xiang Bak Kut Teh

My Ratings: 5 Stars

Cuisine: Chinese
Location: Pasar Awam Megamall, Jalan Perai Jaya 3, Taman Perai Jaya, 13700 Perai, Butterworth, Penang
(see GPS coordinates below)
Price: RM10-20 per person

Where to go when you have that Bak Kut Teh craving. Well, it is at Kluang Ki Xiang Bak Kut Teh is where BKT connoisseur go to for their fix. I can say that I finally found a place where I can find one of the best BKT in Penang. But you have to leave the island to a complex behind the Pacific Megamall. This is a four bagger of 5 stars review.

The meat are vegetables are fresh, the soup is tasty and the aroma is just a perfect balance of herbs. The local favorites are the dry BKT. But the soupy version is also worth a try. You get to order all sorts of pork parts from inerts to knuckles to tails to meat. Delicious!

Price is moderate with RM8 per serving of BKT and RM6 for a plate of vegetables.

Open daily from 8am - 10pm. Call 013-4444488 or 016-2238993 to confirm or directions

Invited Review: Kim Tavern

My Ratings: 5 Stars

Cuisine: International, Fusion, Asian
Location: LG04, Sunway Carnival Mall, Jalan Todak, 13700 Seberang Jaya
Pork Free
RM15-20 per person

This is certainly a pleasant surprise. Never can you expect a restaurant in the major shopping mall to be able to serve great tasting, delicious, savoury foods. Kim Tavern is a heck of that special restaurant. Barely a month old (opened mid October), Kim Tavern has enjoyed over whelming response from satisfied customers as soon as it open its door for business from 11:30am. The restaurant is fully packed right up to 3pm

Born from the hard work and vision of a young entrepreneur, Andy is also a great cook and equally passionate about great food. Kim Tavern is his latest project. His previous projects are also in the food and beverage in other malls in Seberang Jaya. Kim Tavern is targeted at casual family dining. Kim Tavern has any food items that are able to satisfy all taste buds and moods with equally tantalizing drinks. Great food but the best thing is the price is competitive and value for money. Where else can you find a bento box for RM8.50+?

Andy's philosophy for success is serving great food together with great service. The secrets lies in the choice of ingredients. For example, Andy use the more expensive New Zealand mussels, not one but two in its tom yam noodle dishes. Another example of the choice ingredients is the large shrimps in most of the dishes like Sambal Udang Rice and Ipoh Hor Fun. Another of Andy's secret of success is he tries to serve as close to as home cooked meals and no details has been left out during the preparation. For example, white turnip is used to prepare the stock to enhance the aroma and flavour. Furthermore, Andy try to served the food as healthy as possible. Minimal oil is used, only natural flavours. It's nasi lemak do not have coconut milk. You will be surprised that the nasi lemak set is tastier that way.

I like all the dishes served. My favourites are Chicken Spaghetti Bolognese, Chicken Lasagna, Tom Yam Soup Noodle, Unagi Egg Rice, Honey Pepper Roast Chicken drumlets, Sambal for the fried rice and seafood porridge. For drinks, Mango smoothie and tiramisu are also my favourite.

This restaurant has only to look forward. Andy said that the menu is only 40% of his planned menu. So there is more food items to come for us to enjoy. This is a hattrick, my past two review has also been a 5 star performer. More to come. So if you are in Sunway Carnival Mall, Kim Tavern is a must stop for food. Open Daily 11:30am - 9:30pm. Call 604-3999879 or Andy Liew at +6012-4288066. Thanks to CK Lam, Taufulou and Andy for organizing this review
