Like we mentioned earlier, this weekend has be pretty hectic as Brendan was involved in the 4th KIDS BP (British Parliamentary tournament) 2013 organized by KDU University College.

What struck us when we first entered the restaurant was the Mamak stall occupying the entrance, fancy that! And next to it was a Malay stall selling satay to boot.

We enjoyed all the dishes in general and immensely enjoyed the Kam Heong Chicken, and I especially enjoyed the Ham Choi Soup as well. The Sweet and Sour Pork was pretty okay too, but since we couldn't get enough of the Kam Heong Chicken it was a little neglected.

The damage? RM37 excluding drinks, and while it’s borderline ‘everyday food for the everyday person’ we’ll definitely be coming back if only for the Kam Heong Chicken and the extraordinarily fast service!

Forced Hiatus!

It would have been exactly seven months to the day since our last post.  A lot has happened since then, and without going into details ou...
