JULIENNED GINGER CHICKEN RICE (K'NIO-SI KAY P'NG) @ KIM JOO, EWE HAI STREET, KUCHING


This dish should be categorized as "every mother do have them in their repertoire" because every Zi-Char you go to, they'll inevitably pitched the K'nio-Si Kay whenever you ask for a chicken dish. Trust me, it's that infectious! I think the recipe is included in home-cooking 101 of every household.

As the name implies, ginger is the top biller while the chicken plays second fiddle. So the thing to sniff out for is the ginger, which makes the essence of this dish. I'm not particularly a fan of ginger, but the way the dish is prepared here had me hooked.

The dish offered here has finely cut chicken strips combined with
julienned ginger; fragrantly fried without any sauce, which is topped over rice. It comes with an over easy egg (n'ung pao) accompaniment. A very simplistic presentation to a classic... you couldn't ask for anything more!

closes on sunday and every 15th of the month. saturday the kitchen is closed as well, so only kolo mee.

observe the price first, or you'll be scratching your heads when you get the bill, like a lot of people do. the fried rice doesn't fit the bill for the ingredients used.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

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...

May the Farce be With You!
