Wong Solo is one of my favorite Indonesian restaurants in Klang Valley and you could find their outlets in major townships easily. For those who eat Indonesian food on a regular basis you will find their menu nothing surprising and comprises many common and traditional Indonesian dishes. I have tried their Penyet stuff before which is not bad but Wong Solo is also famous for their signature Ayam/Ikan Bakar.
They use ‘ayam kampung’ for their Ayam Bakar and it tastes very close to the normal barbecued chicken but a lot better – more tender and the taste leans towards sweetness because of the dark soya sauce marinade. Although I liked the Ayam Bakar, I am not too happy with the portioning. For RM6.90 at a normal establishment like this, I would have expected a larger portion. Seriously this is not even enough for 1 pax to go with rice.
Anyway, two condiments are readily available on each table – one thick, spicy and sweet soya sauce while the other (sambal ulek) is extremely spicy. And when I say extreme I really mean it, one small dip packs a big punch.
I have been hanging out in Kajang a lot lately and found a restaurant with a 8TV [tag]HoChak[/tag] sign on the door. The best thing about this restaurant is its location – it is no where near the traffic jam area of Kajang town. [tag]Kajang[/tag] may be a small town but the traffic jam can get really crazy especially in the evenings: it’d take half an hour to “crawl” over a distance of a few hundered metres by car, no kidding.
Anyway, the restaurant is called 7 Wonders Kitchen and is reportedly being famous for its [tag]Zha Jiang Mian[/tag] and [tag]fried rice[/tag].
One of the top selling dishes as listed by 7 Wonders Kitchen is this Grandmother Fried Rice @ RM4.50. Funny name eh? Well, there’s another fried rice called Mother Fried Rice, lol. At first glance it didn’t look very special and kinda empty, only a sunny side egg on top. Ingredients wise there were prawns, green pepper and chicken.
After watching the HoChak episode online only I knew some kind of spicy and sour sauce is used to fry the rice, and the green peppers were to provide additional kick. Not really recommended for those who don’t like green peppers, as the flavor was pretty strong.
This was my dinner tonight – Haji Samuri‘s famous Kajang Satay. It’s surprisingly fast and cheap to reach Kajang town from Seri Kembangan, only 20 minutes and RM1 toll. The real problem starts when you’re in Kajang town itself. It’s a small town but there’s a lot of cars. So, getting around would take quite a while even for a short distance.

I have been busy over the last weekend to prepare myself for my new job in Cyberjaya starting later this month. So, I went down to KL/Kajang/Kepong/Serdang/Damansara to look for a place to stay as well as shop for furniture at IKEA. Of course, I also visited some of my favorite eating places and share it with you guys. First stop is Kajang, where I went for its famous Satay Kajang.
