Last weekend Kerol decided that chicken and pork should be on the menu for brunch, and hence the lady took us to Hong Seng kopitiam at Seksyen 17 to visit the chicken rice stall with the longest queue.

In Penang, you have nasi kandar beratur, in PJ, we have nasi ayam beratur. The former is halal, this one isn’t.

Anyway, the chicken rice stall in Hong Seng is probably the most popular hawker stalls in the whole of Seksyen 17. Business starts at just before 10 am, and by around brunch time, there’s always a long queue right in front. Average queuing time is about 10-20 minutes, and yes, this is a self-served only stall.

For the three of us, we had a big plate of roast chicken, roast pork, bbq pork, and a side of spicy and sour vegetable.

The chicken was tender and flavorful, the bbq pork (charsiu) was top notch, but the real star of the show was the roast pork (siu yoke). The skin of that siu yoke is a work of art, crispy yet doesn’t break your teeth, with the pork quite subtle in taste (not having overpowering 5 spice flavor) but pairs well with their home-made chilli sauce.

The hot and sour soup though, was mere average, we thought that there’s way too much leafy vege compared to the actual soup, and the spicy taste wasn’t nearly as intense. My favorite version is still the one at Peng Heong Hakka paikut, Klang.

Overall it was a very satisfying lunch, and at RM 10 or so per pax, it is of pretty good value as well.

  1. thankfully there’s roasted chicken, i am not a fan of pork 😛

  2. That soup sure has very little soup. Looks good though, even though you say it is just average.

  3. KY, the sour vegetable is it with pork with it? It the way I make at home. Great casual Cantonese food.

  4. I just want to say…

  5. want to see more photos of the roast pork! works of art must be showcased as prominently as possible! sounds awesome 😀

    Good food. Bad place . My sister didn’t get what she wanted . The lady that wore a go home you’re drunk t shirt asked another guy in Chinese and said no to my sister . She’s paying for the food and she deserves whatever she wants from that stupid Chinese bitch.
