Kar Heong Ipoh Chicken Rice & Hor Fun @ Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya

Kar Heong Ipoh Chicken Rice & Hor Fun is one of my favourite places for a plate of good Chicken Rice. This restaurant is located along Jalan PJU 5/10 in Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara. There has been quite a number of news paper write ups about this restaurant, both in the Chinese and English papers as this place sells authentic Ipoh Chicken Rice and the taste is really good.

The Restaurant in Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara

The Meat Station

Entrance to the restaurant
This restaurant is divided into two sections. Interestingly, the preparation and cooking is done at the front entrance of the restaurant. This is good as it keeps the heat away from the air conditioned seating area and also the smell from the meat is kept to the outside.

Indoor Seating Area

Indoor Seating Area
They provide quite a comfortable indoor seating area which is air conditioned. The restaurant is quite spacious and is very clean. The staffs here are efficient too. The moment you walk in, they would greet you respectfully and then the menu is handed over to you. Once inside, you would also notice a number of news paper write ups of this place adorning the walls. There has been a lot of mention on both their Chicken Rice as well as Hor Fun.

Their menu has a good variety of both steamed and roasted meat, both pork and chicken and also includes some Wan Tons and noodles. For those who wish to try a combination of meats, a variety of combinations are also provided in the menu. Once you have decided, just inform the waiter your orders and within minutes, the orders would be sent over.

Ambra @ RM 3.00
This is one of my favourite drinks here and almost every time I come here, I tend to order the same drink. This is Ambra juice with sour plum in it. It is one of the very refreshing drinks and works really well on a hot day. Also for those with sore throats, this is a good natural therapy. The drink is really thick and pure and I would rate this at 9.5/10 .

Oil Rice
It is good that they serve the Oil Rice here which is exactly the best rice to go with the Chicken Rice. This is already included in the set and is not charged additionally. The Oil Rice here is good and I would rate it at 8.5/10 .

A Bowl of Soup
You also get a bowl of soup with any set that you order. The soup is very well prepared and I was told that it is boiled with Chicken feet and dried cucumber. There is also some pepper that is added into it and it tastes delicious. I would rate this at 8.8/10 .

Steamed Chicken & Roasted Meat Set @ RM 8.00
I went for their Steamed Chicken and Roasted Meat set which was priced at RM 8.00 . For the price, you get a decent portion.

Steamed Chicken
The Steamed Chicken here is definitely one of the best in the Klang Valley. It is steamed and flavoured wonderfully and the meat is just so tender and juicy. I would rate their Steamed Chicken at 9.4/10 .

Roasted Meat
The Roasted Meat delivers flavoursome, succulent juicy meat that is crackling crispy at the end. The meat is so tender and delicious that you do not need any sauces to accompany it. It also comes with just the right amount of fat thus making it a perfect dish. I would rate their roasted meat at 9.2/10 .

Chili Paste
Their homemade Chili paste is definitely something to look out for. I would highly recommend this but beware that it is extremely spicy. I would never fail to have this here regardless of the dish that I order. My rating for this would be a perfect 10/10 . 

Prawn Wan Ton's in Soup (5) @ RM 4.50

Close Up of the Prawn Wan Tons
Their Prawn Wan Tons are another one of my favourites here. It is very fresh and you would be able to taste the freshness with every bite. The only setback is the size which is a tad too small and each of those Wan Tons are priced at RM 0.90 each. Otherwise, it is good and I would rate it at 8/10 .

This restaurant has definitely stood up to it's reputation and is definitely worth a visit if you love a plate of good Ipoh Chicken Rice. Even their bean sprouts are imported from Ipoh and you would definitely taste the authentic Ipoh taste in every one of their dishes. This restaurant is a branch of their famous SS 14 outlet. A highly recommended place!
