Bittergourd Soup and Fried Pork
Kah Kah Loke
Bittergourd soup with mixed spare parts
To many, this dish may sound a turn off as I know many people dont eat bittergourd. However, please give this place a chance. They have been in the market for many years and their customers are always returning for more over & over again. Maybe its the medicinal value of the soup which I am not a doctor to go further on. But what the heck, it tastes good and its not bitter at all. Very good to try it on a rainy day. Must try is the deep fried pork and Toufu with mince meat. The fried pork goes very well with their Kampong Koh chilli sauce. I usually tell them half fat, half lean meat so its juicy and tender. But some people may be health consious so they can choose to request for lean meat.
Slight history of this place, they started off in Taman Johor Jaya in a secluded corner where it was very difficult to find. The place was an old look like coffeshop which was not inviting at all so they opened up a branch at Taman Iskandar on the same row as the Ya Kun Fishball noodle. That didnt last long and it closed down. The owner then decided to renovate his existing original branch in Johor Jaya and the business is booming now. From there they progressed to open up a new branch in Taman Sutera Utama in the new area near the Peking Restaurant in Sutera Utama. Its on the same row as shop lots as the big japanese buffet restaurants.
