Despite the obscure location, Kedai Makanan Kim Poh at Segambut is usually packed with customers. Most of their customers are loyal and provide repeat business. That explains why they are still going strong after being in food business for over 40 years.
One could expect a simple meal here and there are only a handful of food to order, and that includes their signature Kampar style claypot chicken rice and double boiled soups.
Kim Poh still uses charcoal stoves to cook the claypot chicken rice. Does it make a difference in the taste? I think so, just not in a discerning sort of way. Most of the time it’s just our mind that convinces us.
Salted fish is not added by default, rather, it’s given separately on top of the rice together with some ginger slices. We mixed everything in when the claypot was still pipping and the aroma of the salted fish immediately hit us. Taste wise it’s not bad, worth trying if you happen to be nearby and looking for a place to have an honest meal.
There are a couple of soups to choose from and we chose the old cucumber and pork ribs soup. It was delicious and full of flavour. I think we enjoyed the soup more than the rice actually.
Overall, Kim Poh is a decent place for claypot chicken rice. Just get your expectations straight and you won’t be disappointed if you treat it as a no-frills lunch or dinner. But if you’re a real picky eater, this probably isn’t for you :)Kedai Makanan Kim Poh (along the shops behind Ho Ho Steamboat, hidden from main road)
