I rarely did not know about this stall till I see some one posted in Makan group. Kok Siong Nasi Kandar Penang located in Puchong which is actually a stone throw away from Tesco Puchong or so called newly revamp Lotus Puchong. I believe this is a hidden Gem in Puchong as I have rarely come across any Chinese Nasi Kandar except those in Alor Setar.

Little did I know also Penang got Chinese Nasi Kandar.


Never the less, this is only the super long queue stall inside Restaurant Kok Siong which I certainly believe he also runs the kopitiam. There are other stalls too is just that Kok Siong Nasi Kandar in PJ is super prominent.

Restaurant Kok Siong

This Chinese Nasi Kandar not the typical usual you see like our mamak as they only offer super limited dishes only.

  1. fried chicken
  2. each plate comes with veggie
  3. sotong (super huge and my next aim)
  4. mutton curry
  5. salted egg
  6. and 2 other dishes of the day

nasi kandar kok siong

Just look at the colour of the gravy! it is super tempting and as I stand at the spot where I took this picture, the aroma of curry just cut thru my mask and imagine how pungent the taste is.

best nasi kandar

Of course all my nasi Kandar is always banjir with gravy. Need to mix all of it. Mine is filled with :

2 x fried chicken, mutton curry, papadem, salted egg @ RM33. I think its on the steep side. Fried chicken is fried to perfection, where it is juicy inside and outside remains crispy as just fresh out from the wok. Mutton is perfect for me too as it is soft, slightly chewy to my liking and mild mutton taste as where it needs to make it umami!

Be Prepare to queue, but it moves fast as everyone just pack and go and it is not much choices too. I will certainly come back again for this as I find the curry is punch with flavours like classic Penang Nasi Kandar. BEST!

At times we are just too lazy to drive all the way to KL for certain occasions and just wish to find some where near for nice dining. MONTT Restaurant & Bar located in Puchong Utama is one of a restaurant and bar that you can look forward to.

Mont (1)

Ambiance that had been done up tastefully luxury for Puchong neigbourhood. Ample of parking space and Valet available for those of you whom wish to park right at the door step.

For lunch today, we are tasting off with food pairing. Starting off with Sake Echigozakura Nihonshu Love this sake as it is easy to drink, and definitely pairs well with Chilled Capellini .Bring up the light taste of mild bursting salty fish roe and balance up truffle oil to give a nice floral finishing.

Mont (8)

Mont (9)

Grill tiger prawn is fresh and paired with Misha’s Vineyard – Riesling. The acidic lemon onto the grill prawn bring up the gril prawn taste and end with a nice smooth chilled reisling. White and seafood, never goes wrong.

Mont (10)

This Roasted Half Young Chicken  is done to perfection. Sous Vide the chicken for a few hours, then put into slow grill in oven had made the chicken juicy inside out. Pairing with paired with Dogajolo Toscano Rosso IGT (Italy) which give you a hint of sourness from red balance off the juicy chicken.

Mont (11)

Lets head to something more pungent – Dukkah Spiced Lamb Rib. This is the limited edition wine that specially bottled for Montt Restaurant – Corona de Aragon Reserva Especial 2014 as each bottle of wine are labled with numbers. The wine need to breath for a while or at least 20-30 minutes as the difference of taste is quite prominent. First sip is like shiraz, mild with end spicy note. However if breath long enough, it had become a nice dry wine, that give you smooth body finishing.  Paired with their chef special pork ribs.

Balance it off with prata bread, sour cream and apple salad. A great combination of flavour.

Mont (12)

Mont (13)

For dessert fans, their dessert would be their star highlight. Nice craft and well presented. Peanut Butter Mascarpone mould to perfection, as for it to hold in such sphere shape, ingredient and temperate must be right. If not the whole dessert will just fall apart. Love the creaminess, bitter and end alcohol taste of this. Tiramisu fans, this is a must order item.

Mont (14)

Mont (15)

Their Strawberry Lychee mousse is pretty impressive too. Look at the temper of white chocolate and twirl. That needs skills. A cup that is carefully assemble and inside of it is soft, and slightly wobbly. By looking at it, you knew that it is build from scratch and it is freshly made.

Mont (16)

Those of you hate to travel all the way down to KL yet want to dine and drink in piece, Montt Restaurant and Bar would be one of a good options for you Puchong Folks. Could be one of your destination for a wine bar in Puchong too.
