Be it roast duck lovers, foodies looking to fill their stomach or somebody out to look for an inexpensive meal, all can look no further than Restaurant Kim Loong albeit far away from Johor Bahru city. Although remotely located in Senai area, the daunting task of driving to Senai has been tamed with the new hookups to various expressways. The place is certainly more accessible with lesser time on the road needed, especially for our friends heading back to Singapore or from a trip at Desaru.

I am a patron of Kim Long for the past decade, still reminiscing about the university days whereby my next stop would be Kim Long right after alighting from the plane at Senai airport. A long time customer no doubt, even the boys who were all grown up teenagers now, still recognises us whenever we dropped by.

Words have been that ever since then, they have split into 2 separate branches but still in and around the Senai vicinity. Today we were at the new branch, located nearer towards Skudai area.

Home-made beancurd 家乡豆腐, deep fried beancurd topped with pickled vegetables and minced pork. The beancurd is soft and smooth, with a thin layer of crisp on the outside which taste awfully good when accompanied with the crunchy pickled vegetables. A dish with multi-layered textures, goes well with rice or eaten on its own. Rating: 7.5/10

Stir fried long beans with minced pork 肉碎炒龟痘苗. I particularly enjoyed the minced pork, stir fried till fragrant, 咸香口感一级棒. Great for blending it with your rice. Rating: 7.5/10

Pork ribs with salted egg 咸蛋排骨.  The ribs are blackened on the outside, overdone and tough on the inside. The salted egg gravy is overwhelming for me, but should go well for people that enjoys the salted egg aroma and grainy texture. Rating: 6.0/10

Price: 7.5/10 
Service: 7.0/10
Conclusion: A visit to Kim Long is never complete without ordering their roasted duck 琵琶鸭, which makes this trip rather incomplete. I've regretted my decision not to order the duck and instead opted for the pork ribs. I just got to have it on my next trip here. Do not miss out on the sweet and sour fish slices 酸甜鱼片, they are one of the must-have for me too. Highly recommended.
