Kim Kee Bak Kut Teh @ Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh, Sungai Buloh

Today I decided to venture again into Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh to check out new food joints to explore. With my recent visit here, I have discovered that this little Chinese settlement has so much more to offer and I am all set to explore new restaurant here.

Restoran  Bak Kut Teh Kim Kee at Sungai Buloh New Village
Not very far from the main intersection, just less than 500 meters in, I came across this shop on my left and Bak Kut Teh surely attracts me. Although the sign says Kam Kee, but it is actually Kim Kee. I verified this with the owner later.

Simple Interior

Mostly locals around the neighbourhood

Hot Water for Tea
As you can see, the layout is quite simple but it is relatively a huge shop. I took my seat and was attended to by one of the lady's there.She must be part of the family and they were assisted by two Burmese helpers. I asked her what is good and she informed me that they have both the Soup and Dry Bak Kut Teh here. I went for the soup style, and then added some eggs and vegetables to it. The lady kept asking me again if that was not too much for me and I just said that I just happen to be hungry today. She smiled and then went off into the kitchen. That is when I realised that when you order eggs here, it is not the usual Lor Eggs but fried eggs like that commonly served in restaurants and the vegetable was also the same.

Herbal Tea

Herbal Tea is usually my favourite when I come to these places and I must admit that it was pretty good here. I would definitely rate it at 8.8/10 .

White Rice
They do not have other variations of rice here but the plain white rice. I was okay with it and was just waiting for the rest of the dishes to arrive now. I must say service here is very fast despite the number of patrons at this time.

Chili Padi

Bak Kut Teh

Lovely Lean Meat
I have deliberately placed the photo of the chili above as I have never seen chilies that fresh being served. Usually they look a little faded but here they were really fresh. The Bak Kut Teh was lovely. You can choose you meat cuts here and I got what I had asked for, clean meat cuts with slight fat. The meat was also very tender. It comes with a few pieces of Fu Chok and in a claypot.  The soup was heavenly and of the dark colour. In fact when I poured it on the rice, it seeped well into the rice thus discolouring it.  I must say that they serve fantastic Bak Kut Teh here. I would surely rate this dish at 9.2/10 .

Stir Fried Cabbage with Dried Shrimps
This again was another excellent dish. I was told that this Dried Shrimp and Chili preparation is their specialty here. It was a huge portion though. The taste went well  and in my opinion, I could just eat this vegetable alone without anything else for a meal. That good it was. Though simple to make, it has been perfected by them. The cabbage was also still crunchy and not over cooked. I would rate this dish at 9/10 .

Yau Char Kui
The Yau Char Kui was also well prepared. It was soft, fresh and when you dip it into the soup, it is able to absorb the soup completely. Another good preparation and it deserves a rating of 8.5/10 .

Fried Eggs with Dried Shrimps & Chilies 
This was also good in its own way and the mixture of Dried Shrimps and Chilies gave it a boost of taste. I just loved the way that it was so fluffy, soft and not oily at all. I would rate this at 9.2/10 .

Contact Details
Overall, I had an excellent meal here. The total meal cost me RM 22.00 which is cheap bearing in mind the number or dishes that I had had. Everything is good about this restaurant though it is simple in layout and does not have air conditioning. The service is good, food is great, friendly neighbourhood restaurant, price is cheap and above all they have much more to offer than just this. I was told that some of their other specialties are Coca Cola Chicken, Chickuteh, Pandan Chicken and many more. If only I had come in a larger group, I would have surely tried those dishes as well. Would I come back here, of course I would. A great restaurant to dine in.
