Lek Kee Chicken Rice, Taman Kajang Prima

Following up on my earlier post about the best chicken rice in Kajang, the main contender for the title was Lek Kee Chicken Rice which was located at the car park area of the Kajang market. Quite famous actually, but also notorious. See the comments to the review in the Kajang Town blog here.

Actually gd, Rose and myself too have a love hate relationship with the Kam Mou (golden haired guy) who used to chop the meat there. Good food but bad hygiene and bad attitude. But putting everything else aside, it was a pretty good chicken rice. So when the Kam Mou dissapeared, we though that was the end of his legacy.

The good news is that Lek Kee has now reopened at Taman Kajang Prima, off Jalan Semenyih.
However the Kam Mou has lost his signature blonde hair and is now with black hair :-) Not sure if he is less ham sap as well ;-)
Still with the same bad ass attitude though. Somehow it wouldn't be the same without the attitude :-)

Chicken and char siew are still good. Haven't tried the duck and siew yoke yet. Give it a try and let me know what you think. It's located behind the HSBC Bank.

The best chicken rice in Kajang ?

This is going to be contentious but I'm sticking my (chicken) neck out here. The best chicken rice IMHO is to be found in a coffee shop named Double Six Restaurant (Restoran 66) at Bandar Teknologi, Jalan Semnyih, Kajang.

A steady stream of customers from about 12 noon until they sell out, which can be as early as 2 p.m. is testament to the quality of the chicken rice here.
 The roast chicken, roast pork and char siew are all good.
And the rice is cooked in chicken stock, making it tasty and flavorful.
Located on the left side of the main road as you enter Bandar Teknologi from Jalan Semenyih, do give it a try and let me know what you think.
