The best hot soup in Kajang ?

A recent edition of the Ho Chak TV series highlighted a place in Sg Chua, Kajang which is supposedly famous for it's hot soup. Now we had been frequenting the featured place, Ah Hee's Hot Soup, many years ago and yes, they are pretty decent. But ask any Kajang foodie worth his or her salt and they would point you in the direction of another Hot Soup place nearby, Restoran Siaw Kah Kampung Ayam Sup Pedas. In fact, if you frequent the area like we do, you would notice that Siaw Kah is always crowded and Ah Hee is less crowded.

Anyway, just to check if there had been any changes to the Hot Soup (since we had not been there for a few years), I went by to Ah Hee yesterday to ta-pau some Hot Soup back home. The consensus of Ros, my mother-in-law and myself is that Siaw Kah is still very much better. But don't take our word for it. Give it a try yourself and make your choice.

Other dishes to try (at both places) are the rice wine claypot chicken (fa diu kai), pork belly in claypot and otak-otak.

Location : No. 278, Jalan Berjaya 8, Taman Berjaya, Sungai Chua, Kajang (Ah Hee's is located in the row of shops just behind Siaw Kah)

  1. Don't always trust Ho Chak! From my own experience, the mass media in Malaysia is horrible! When you run a publicity event and invite them, the first question they ask you is "Do you advertise with us", followed by "Are you going to advertise with us" - if both are negative, that it! They don't cover your event. So take it that, most of these are PAID ADVERTISEMENTS!

    As for the hot soup, lets be fair la - regulars in Kajang knows the best - just ask around the good folks in Sg. Chua. How in heavens name did Ho Chak pick that baffles me. Ho Chak, you have to do soul searching - this kind of reporting is sad.
