    This is the most famous roast pork and chicken rice stall in the whole area of Pudu! It is said that the waiters of this famous stall won’t take your orders after 12.30pm as crowds gather everyday just to get a piece of their famous and crispy roast pork! While the roast pork here is wildly popular and sought after, the chicken isn’t below its par as well. Roasted tenderly and crispy on the skin, it’s a great lunch time treat!
    Tips

    Be there before 12pm & be patient as you have to wait up to 30 minutes

    Things to expect

    Noisy hawker stall environment!

    Dubbed one of the top 5 best chicken rice by Free Malaysia Today, the chicken rice at this store is so popular, they have their own website! The owner of Loke Yun, Phang Kee Kim, was given the “King of Hainanese Chicken Rice” award by Guang Ming Daily back in 2007. Although it’s a bit hard to find its location, the good food and excellent service made up for it. With traditional Hainanese recipes from Phang’s father, Loke Yun has successfully maintained the quality and distinction of its chicken rice for more than 40 years!

    Nasi Ayam Kam KeeNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Located just a few doors away from the Swiss Hotel, it is also near Petaling Street if you’re not familiar with the busy streets of Kuala Lumpur. One thing that separates the chicken rice in Kam Kee and other places is that Kam Kee uses both free-ranged and farm-ranged chickens. Besides chicken, they also serve beef brisket soup which not many chicken rice places would provide. Reasonably priced and satisfying to the tummy!
    Tips

    Order the free-ranged chicken for juicier and slightly more tender meat!

    Things to expect

    Really fragrant and flavourful rice

    Best with

    Beef Brisket Soup

    Soya Sauce Chicken RiceNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Located at a narrow alley way of hawker centres of Jalan Ipoh and the intersection of Jalan Kuching, not only does this stall serve chicken rice, they also serve soup with huge pork balls! The soya sauce used for the chicken dressing is not the regular ones you get to taste outside, it is a special blend of a denser recipe. Hence, the colour of the sauce is darker too.
    Tips

    Make the bean sprouts, pork ball soup and chicken rice a combo to your meal – it’s wonderful!

    Things to expect

    Shaded road-side seating

    Best with

    Pork Ball Soup
