KAM-KAM P'NG @ NEW CAPITAL RESTAURANT, KG. NYABOR ROAD, SIBU


Not wanting to sound offensive, the local call this rice dish (pronounce as Come-Come as in COVER in Hokkien) P'ng (rice). In the menu it is described as Bowl-Covered Rice.

Initially I just wanted a Hainanese Chicken Rice, but this self-described "Life of a beggar, Mouth of an emperor" (Kee-Chiak Mia, Ong-Teh Chui) person convinced me otherwise to this never-tried-before dish. I freed myself from the responsibility of ordering the food for the 4 of us, as I didn't know what to expect from it all. Altogether we had 2 plates of Kam-Kam P'ng, a plate of chopped Hainanese chicken plus 1 bowl of chicken rice, 4 watercress soup and 1 fried Midin fern. It was food overkill, I tell you.

So what is Kam-Kam P'ng? It's a upside-down Hainanese chicken rice with shredded chicken, Xiao Pai Chai and egg steamed in a bowl. Each bowl is adequate for 2 persons, and costs RM10 each. If you've no qualm about Hainanese chicken rice, you'll love this.

How did I feel about the Kam-Kam P'ng? I feel a lot Kong-Kam (foolish) about the whole episode after having to foot the bill of RM70 for the lunch, whereas a RM4 per person chicken rice will do the job. Now you know how that person got the moniker "
Kee-Chiak Mia, Ong-Teh Chui".

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...
