One of the most common dishes in Malaysia that Malaysians eat for lunch or dinner would be the chicken rice platter. Whether it's purely roasted or steamed chicken, roasted BBQ pork, or duck meat, you will find people always ordering it because its served fast and edible in a short period of time during lunch hours. Visiting Kota Kinabalu? Then, dont leave KK without witnessing one of KK's finest & delicious chicken rice at Kedai Kopi Gunung Emas, Luyang.
Do visit this place early as 11.30 am as their food finishes fast around 1.30 pm during peak hours! Be prepared though for a long queue as the line can stretch around the shop. Also, lots of table fighting and parking hunting! Pricewise, its RM 5.50 per person.
Their rice is cooked with chicken stock and ginger with makes the rice delicious with its fragance.
The char siew & BBQ pork is superb and delicious to bite to, I was disappointed as I came a bit later as their signature roasted pork ribs was sold out. Bummer!
Your visit will be meaningless if you do not bathe your meat or rice with their special sauce. Every table will be served a bowl of it and its refillable. Their secret sauce completes their meat platter as the essence & flavour of the sauce mixes well with your food. Do not overdo it, as it could be very salty.
|Chicken Rice Stall|
In my opinion, this chicken rice beats most of the chicken rice stall around Klang Valley & KL though. Do visit here when you are in Kota Kinabalu and give me a feedback! A must place visit for tourist!
