My housemate Rachel, her course mate
Lucy Liu Amanda, and I were at Taman Paramount scouting for a place for dinner when we spotted Restaurant Kong Sai. A place that looked clean, comfortable, and pretty busy. Since we happened to park the car just across the road, we decided to give this place a try despite never heard about it before.
Restaurant Kong Sai, Taman Paramount
One of my favorite open air Tai Chau (Chinese cook to order) places, Ming Heong, is located right across from this restaurant. If Kong Sai can attract as many customers as Ming Heong, it only make sense that their food must be up to the standard as well.
Fortunately my logic didn’t fail this time.
pork knuckle vinegar, omelet, lotus root soup, vegetable
For three of us, we ordered four dishes. A pork knuckle vinegar, an omelet, a bowl of steamed soup with lotus root, and fried vegetable for some vitamin and iron.
Our food did take a while to arrive. The soup really smells good and tasted very sweet, obviously cooked long enough with pork bones and chicken feet. The lotus root and peanuts in the soup were soft while still retaining enough taste.

Vegetable and omelet were both pretty good dishes, but the best dish of the night undoubtedly went to the pork knuckle vinegar. The generous serving of pork came with just the right proportion of skin, fat, and meat. Coupled with the strong taste of ginger, vinegar, and their excellent home made chicken rice style chili sauce; it was totally awesome. We devoured everything.
Kong Sai Restaurant is situated right across Giant Hypermart
If my memory serves me correctly, the dinner and drinks came to around RM 40. Pretty good value I’d say.
Apparently every other table orders their steamed chicken (ala chicken rice style) as well, I am going to try that the next time.
