I have probably said this before several times but I will say it again - I really really love Hong Kong food. Whether it is authentic or not is subjective however it doesn't make me like the food any less.
Kim Gary's has been a family favourite, especially the one in Sungai Wang plaza since we shop there almost every week at one point. Our go-to place for brunch or lunch will always be Kim Gary's because they offer many different kinds of set lunch that comes with a soup and drink which is super affordable. However I haven't been there in a while and when I got the chance, it was my number one suggestion.
A must order whenever I am at Kim Gary's is their shredded pork with mushroom rice, topped with a nicely fried egg. I remember several years ago this dish was super fragrant and the sauce that it comes with was really nice, plus there used to be a nicely generous serving of pork.
However things seems to no longer be the same now as it was only mediocre at best and the egg was overly cooked which means no nicely runny yolk to coat the hot rice. Safe to say I was quite disappointed with my used to be favourite dish.
My aunt decided to order the teriyaki chicken rice, it also coems with a fried egg and some beans. Although this flavour has never been a favourite of mine, I certainly feel like it tasted better than my dish. However the chicken portion was a little small though enough for my aunt who has a smaller appetite than most people.
At least her egg was nicely runny.
The best dish that day was the Noodles with Herbal Chicken soup that my mother ordered. This was really good because the soup was really well flavoured plus there were quite a lot of chicken bits. Plus I think I really enjoyed the nissin noodles because it was our regular packaged ramen noodle which I often times eat a lot of despite it being quite unhealthy.
After this experience, I probably feel a little disappointed with Kim Gary's standards as it feels as if it had dropped slightly. However I do have hopes that other branches would be bette and other dishes would taste better than my usual.
