Kim Poh Roasted Chicken & Duck Rice (金宝烧腊鸡鸭专卖店) @ Jelutong, Penang.

One of the oldest and well-known roast houses in Jelutong area is Kim Poh... previously housed within a snug lot under a low-cost flat behind the famous Kim Leng Loh Mee but it has since moved to a bigger lot right opposite to the aforementioned Loh Mee stall. The new shop is brighter and seemingly cleaner; it's hard to miss Kim Poh... the huge facade and signage will easily catch the attention of any road users on Perak Road. The renovation gave the shop a modern interior with comfortable seating; business has been brisk with long queues spotted during lunch hours and dinner hours. Kim Poh specializes in Roasted goodies, particularly Roasted Chicken, Roasted Duck, Barbecue Pork and Roasted Pork... along with mains like Wan Ton Mee, Porridge, Rice and sides like braised Tofu/ Egg, blanched Bean Sprouts etc. We believe one of the reasons that contributed to the success of Kim Poh is the affordable prices and quality offering.

Mixed Roasted Goods- Blanched Chicken, Roasted Pork and Barbecue Pork (Rm 16)

Wan Ton Mee (Rm 3)

Meat lovers be merry on the variety offered, there are as much as 6 types of goods offered here- Roasted Chicken, Roasted Duck, blanched Chicken, Roasted Pork, Barbecue Pork (Char Siew), Roasted Sausage. The Chicken may seem bland but it surprised us with its fork-tender texture, well-complemented with the thick savory-sweet Soy sauce. The Roasted Pork paled in comparison with the Barbecue Pork, the latter pick was expertly roasted. The texture was spot on- meaty but not fully dried out, with a hint of sweet smokiness. Tummy-filler was the Wan Ton Mee, though not outstanding, it was decent enough to go with the meat. For those who can't enjoy their meal properly without chilies... their home-made Chili sauce is a bomb and can be refilled as you wish.
