Restoran Siaw Kah @ Sungai Chua, Kajang
If you think Kajang is just all about satay, then you have to venture to this humble little town for another famous delicacy of “Lat Tong” aka Hot Soup 辣汤. There are a few restaurants selling this Hot Soup and Restoran Siaw Kah is one of famous/recommended place.
The restaurant is rather spacious with simple setting. It is brightly lit and airy with many waiting staffs, the service indeed fast and attentive.
Siaw Kah Spicy Hot Soup 萧家辣汤 (RM12.00/portion)
Their signature Spicy Hot Soup was chock-full of ingredients, kampung chicken, pork and innards such as liver and stomach, ginger and Chinese parsley. The broth was well infused with peppery taste, not too overpowering but good enough to warm your body and soul 🙂
Spicy Pork Belly with Dried Shrimp 火爆肉 (RM13.00/portion)
served pipping hot in a claypot, the flavors of this spicy pork belly were certainly evocative and punchy with lots of umami note from the dried shrimps. Studded with plenty of onions, spring onions and chili padi(!), the black sauce went really well with rice. It had a strong flavors and aroma that we Malaysians taste bud are fond of.
Steamed Pork Belly with Yam 芋头扣肉 (RM 17.00)
The Steamed Pork Belly with Yam was pale in comparison with the former two dishes. It was just average, the pork belly was tender but not particularly pronounced in flavor.
Spring Roll 春卷 (RM12.00)
The spring roll had nice crunchy outer and the flavors was well executed. However I don’t like the texture of the meat filling, it was not compact enough.
Vegetables 蚝油生菜 (M- RM10.00)
Verdict: Both their signature dishes of hot soup and spicy pork belly were really good but other dishes we’ve tried were just mediocre.
