We have passed Soon Huat during our food searching adventures around Kuchai Lama, but had never had a chance to try it out, on that day- after consulting the star chart we found that the alignment of the planets were agreeable for us to visit Soon Huat, so we did.
Items on Soon Huat’s menu include : Bak Kut Teh ( dry or soupy), fried salted fish patties, signature tofu, steamed fish head, assam fish head, kembung fish, fried chili fish , assam sotong, herbal steamed chicken, vinegar pork trotters etc. Set meals are also available, 5 sets to choose Set A : 12/13 pax (6 dishes include : soupy BKT, dry BKT, steamed fish head, steamed chicken, stir fried vege, meat patties, Chinese tea , RM128), Set B : 11/12 pax (6 dishes, RM98), Set C : 9/10 pax ( 5 dishes RM88) , set D at RM78 and Set E for 5/6 pax at RM68)
We decided to go for BKT, signature tofu and stir fried vegetable.
The place was rather cosy and I liked the lights that they have in the shop.
Bak Kut Teh ( small , RM12), we had the lean and fatty meat mix, taste wise-average , just like the usual BKT
Home made signature tofu (RM10), this was interesting, the texture was like luncheon meat, taste wise- delicious ! They were firm, not entirely like meat but not tofu either, I couldn’t quite place it . If not for the spotty bits of tofu, – I wouldn’t have guessed that these was the tofu dish that we ordered- I decide to call this – dalmation tofu , I complemented on the dish and the owner said that this was made with 3 different kind of meat, I was thinking maybe bison, squirrel and crocodile ..or possibly chicken, pork and fish guarr.
Stir fried vegetable (RM7)- this was ok, I find that generally stir fried yau mak seldom disappoints, the yau mak was crunchy and fresh with lotsa chopped garlic as garnishing.
Overall, a ok meal, the meal set us back RM35.20 including 2 drinks and 2 plate of rice ( RM1.50/plate) , when I asked the ladyboss, do we still have to pay the 20sen? she then started to tell us that although the price of pork had increased, they can’t increase the price of the dishes, they survive because they do not employ too many helpers yadda yadaa yadda….ok la , ok la…I pay you the 20sen lahh….Location : No. 2A, Jalan Kuchai Maju 8, Off Jalan Kuchai Lama, 58200 KL Tel : 79826235, 012 2066213 ( next door is D’rich )
