Uncle Chong’s Kitchen @ 1 Shamelin Mall

Started in the year of 2006, Uncle Chong’s Kitchen is a cozy, homey place serving the taste of home. All the food served here are home recipe passed down for generations, still strictly guarded to ensure the best quality for diners.

Uncle Chong’s Curry Laksa (RM7.90)
A bowl of yellow noodles immersed in bed of beautiful red hot curry, topped over with cockles, tau pok, bean sprout and chicken. Flavourful yet not too spicy, coconuty is more protuding, make a good choice for those who like their curry creamy and thick, not just plain spiciness.

Asam Laksa (RM7.90)
Uncle Chong’s version asam laksa was on the less spicy, more sourish side. Soup was rather clean, not the cloudy type with humerous fish flakes. Enjoy slurping over the smooth noodles with tummy warming soup that whet up the appetite. Ideal choice during a rainy day.

Uncle Chong Nasi Lemak (RM9.90)
Where rice is always important for a plate of nasi lemak, you may find the rice here less flavourful. But don’t get disappointed as according to Mr Chong, the rice is the improved version after feedback from many loyal patrons. He mentioned that the gravy for rendang chicken, sambal and spicy prawns are cooked individually, so each of them fares their own unique flavours. If the rice goes too coconuty and flavourful, it will overwhelmed the good flavours of the gravy, ended up patrons will feeling cloying too if each elements is so heavy. So we found that reasonable.

Tom Yum Seafood Noodles (RM7.90)
Served red hot with generous amount of seafood, the Tom Yum noodles seemed inviting but We doubted if this was Tom Yum noodles at the first sip, as the soup brought in tomato-ish sensation instead of fiery hot. Indeed, the soup base is again kind feedback from frequent diners, requesting for a milder version tom yum as the previous one was too tongue burning.

Grilled Sting Ray (RM9.90)
Apart from that, diners can opt for a portion of grilled sting ray to share. Cooked in Portuguse style, this side dish may not be as flavourful as those we have in roadside stall, but decent enough to kill the craving for grilled fish.

Steamed Chicken Feet in Black Bean Sauce (RM6.00)
Starting from 15 November 2013, Uncle Chong’s Kitchen will add a series of delicious snack to the menu, giving more choices to diners. Among them included steamed chicken feet in black bean sauce, deep fried vege fish cake, thai style kerabu chicken feet, etc.

Deep Fried Vege Fish Cake (RM6.00)
The Deep Fried Vege Fish Cake is a must try. Homemade freshly daily, this special snack is sold at limited quantity daily in order to keep the quality.

Deep Fried Chicken Roll (RM6.00)
Deep Fried Chicken Roll is good too, where it boasts a different texture compared to the fish cake. While the fish cake is chewy and bouncy, the additional of minced chicken in the chicken roll brings in a denser, firmer texture, coated with light crispiness.

Thai Style Kerabu Chicken Feet (RM8.00)
Tossed with ample of lime, chopped onions, corriander leaves, lemongrass, and red chillies, the Thai Style Kerabut chicken Feet will surely drives your palate to a wild level of spiciness and sourness.
