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.

Kong Sai at Taman Paramount
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.

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.

    hey! i used to frequent this restaurant occasionally when me and my family run out of ideas of where to eat.

    their 3 most popular dishes are steamed chicken ( imo i love it cos of the ginger/garlic/soya sauce dip), curry ‘pai kuat’ (pork ribs?) and pork stomach soup. love love love πŸ˜€

    try it next time when u are there!

  33. pegsywegsy,
    Thanks for the tips! Will do that next time. πŸ˜€

  34. Yeah..steamed chicken very nice….

  35. Calvin Kong

    Been eating Kong Sai for many years.. they are popular with their Steam Chicken and the accompany dipping.. another of my favourite is their Curry Spareribs.

  36. GJ,
    I thought the steamed chicken was alright. πŸ™‚

    Calvin Kong,
    Ya the dipping is rather unique.

  37. kong sai is actually a province in china adjacent to kwong tung (Canton) and shares the border with vietnam. they have some unique dishes, which is the steamed chicken serves with special dip (each household have their own versions), the yam kow yuk (por & yam sandwiches), and others (kong sai yong taufu – not available in this restaurant). The full name of the restaurant is actually kong sai chai, probably indicating that the owner is from this province. try the chicken and the yam/pork dish next time. πŸ™‚

  38. weezy,
    Thanks for the information. Now i’m in the know! πŸ˜€

  39. you are welcome, ky. i am a kongsai mui, so i know. hehehe.

    if you like to eat more kong sai style dishes, like the kong sai yong tau foo, ask someone to take you to bentong or raub, pahang. πŸ™‚

  40. Kong Sai suck
