Hearty Chinese Lunch in KL | Jeff Lee Kitchen Sungai Buloh


There are so many restaurants in KL area. Only true local guides like our foodie friend Leslie knows where to get good and cheap eats, especially during CNY. This is throwback to our lunch meetup at Jeff Lee Kitchen on Chor 10 of CNY 2020!

It can get really crowded at mealtimes. So head there either before or after usual times. They do accept reservations though. Even though there were plenty of indoor air-conditioned seatings, by 12noon, they were all filled up and people were already queuing up for table availability.
Jeff Lee offers most of the common Chinese cuisines, but we think the following 3 dishes are must tries. Their portion is fairly generous, please order modestly.

Stir fry kuay teow.


Fragrant rice noodles fried with just enough heat called "wok hei" before it burnt , combined with bite sized kailan and egg. Very simple ingredients but each mouthful spelled contentment. The dish didn't need bombardstic ingredients to make a statement. A classic done elegantly. Definitely make the dieters bend their rules.

Fish porridge.


Fresh grouper fish slices hidden in a densed rice porridge. The broth is sweetened by the freshness of the fish. Sprinkled with chopped spring onions, this pot of gold is the ultimate comfort food. Baby Bing and Yi easily downed half of the pot in no time. If only every meal time was as easy as this!

Roast duck


Being great fans of roast duck, we would say this is one of our favorite spot! Thick and juicy duck flesh with crispy golden skin. It retains its natural flavor without the dipping sauce. However, when mixed with sweet plum sauce, it neutralizes the oiliness well.

Besides having a hearty meal, we were lucky to meet the God of Fortune again! This time by Maggie. Didn't win the grand prize but we were all blessed by auspicious Ang Paus.

The price is of course very reasonable at RM91 only-- to feed 3 adults and 2 children..

The followings are our verdict:
Value for money 5/5
Taste 4.5/5
Service 4/5
Cleanliness 4/5
Comfort 4/5
