Kam's Kitchen @ Cheras Revisited



Kam's kitchen has since taken over as our neighbourhood favourite Tai Chow Restaurant for our family. The last time I reviewed this particular restaurant , they had just moved to their new premise here (that was in August 2007). Today they consistently fill up their restaurants, and I was about to find out why....

It was just another family dinner, except that my brother felt like he wanted to drink abit. The captain, recommended us FRESH todi, just made early in the morning, so since we haven't been driving to Pandamaran or anywhere near Klang for our Todi fixes, ok la why not, we try one bottle, contained in a 1.5l Seamaster water bottle, I looked at it and thought, it was barley... hehehehe.... My first time drinking todi, and found it quite enjoyable, and I believe we add stout to it so that it gives the extra kick, and also to make it less cooling.... Todi , RM10 only, Guiness, standard coffee shop rates.

We ordered a fish, steamed with just light soy sauce and some garlic oil on it. RM12 only, as it states on the receipt. The fish that they serve you are usually fresh here, I have not had any bad complains with their fish ever. They now have an aquarium where they keep their fish alive until it is cooked.

My mom's favourite, Claypot Pumpkin chicken. The pumpkin is actually the main ingredient, as it is mushy, sweetish, with the mix of some Oyster sauce, the smaller chunks mixes with the chicken making it sweet. The bigger ones are cooked longer to make it soft and easy to bite in. Very appetising this dish.... Thats a huge serving for RM20.


For me , this Indonesian Style Prawns is the star tonight. Really very appetising, as it incorporates, really fresh king prawns, extra large in size, with "indonesian styled" curry. Not sure how to explain it, but its really nice. RM50.

Nai Yau Pork Ribs, with sesame. This is a dry dish, as the deep fried pork ribs, is glazed with the Nai Yau gravy. Another very appetising dish, from Kam's. RM15 only.

I actually have no idea what this vegetable is... RM15 only.

The entire bill came up to RM160. Very economical, considering we were having todi and lots of stout that night. Kam's Kitchen is slowly becoming a very famous restaurant for serving really good and economical food in the Cheras area.

pumpkin and chicken..wah, very interesting...usually it's just pumpkin and anchovies for me...

question: is samsu and todi the same thing ar?? been wondering for quite some time now...

Bernsy said...

samsu is more like home brewed whiskey or brandy, really heavy stuff.... todi is just wine... low alcohol content...

We always want to cook the best and the healthiest recipe that we can find from the internet. As a mother, I always want that and in able to keep up with those needs, I need to be focused and be creative. I always have Gourmandia on my side to give me the appropriate recipes for the day and for me not to reiterate the recipe that I did the other day! It’s just so innovative!
