I ate: Hailam food @KKB

Set in the sleepy town of Kuala Kubu Baru untainted by time Restaurant Sun Sun Nam Cheong is said to have served generations of its residents of this small city town. Walking into this simple rustic restaurants sets your mood back to probably 20 years behind time. Focusing on a small menu serving traditional hailam food and local food to serve the local people mainly dominated by the malay population this small eatery serves halal food.

Being in a hailam restaurant which exudes a mood of authenticity i ordered the quintessential Malaysian western dish of Chicken Chop. A very simple dish served with Worcester sauce as its base the very tender piece of chicken was cooked well with onions accompanied with a side serving of peas and fries went really well. And probably the best part of the dish for me was the steamed hailam bread with melted butter on its surface which was then topped with a gently poached egg. Two thumbs up for that!

Other notable fares include hailam mee which is the signature dish of this shop and its fried rice which was fragrant, simple and very well done which could have easily taken on any upper class bistro's in other bigger towns.

Overall the food was decent for KKB seeing that you dont actually get alot of food around its town area. In a small town like this prices a really reasonable with the chicken chop being the most expensive dish on the menu at RM 10 would probably be a good point to patronize this small eatery the next time round. Probably breakfast here would be a good idea for some authentic steam hailam bread and kaya or perhaps a nice cup of traditional hailam coffee.

Heck they'd even set dodgy looking partitions to give some privacy to their diners. How 70's is that?
