Home Kitchen


That's Restoran Home Kitchen. A fairly new chap fan shop which opened last year, if I remember correctly. Yup, eating chap fan again. Haiz....


This restaurant prides itself with serving food without msg and artificial coloring.



It's very clean, cosy and neat.


My first eat-in meal (previously I used to tapau). Chicken, bittergourd omelette, choy tam and ladies fingers (RM7.50). 


What I like is that they provide free water and you help yourself at the dispenser. There is also a microwave oven for you to heat up your meal.



The thing about the food here is that the taste is mild, bordering on bland if you are more used to stronger flavors. But this is healthier food so to speak, devoid of msg and artificial coloring/flavorings (as they claim).


They also provide a complimentary bowl of soup. The soup is not salty, in fact undersalted. Which is good as too much salt is bad for us.



Another day I had kangkung, mustard green and ginger chicken (RM6.00).


And guess what? They have discounts based on the time you visit. I had to smile at their humor - "9pm onward FREE but we are closed" hah..hah..



One day I had my lunch late. I took two big helpings of greens, some fried tofu and remnants of a few chicken dishes. All that for RM5.00.

Looks like my own home kitchen is taking a long rest.

  1. Spot on! I love their food and would drop by sometimes when I have the patience to find parking at the back lanes. I have skin allergies due to many MSG dishes so this shop is excellent and healthy. The young bosses are always friendly too. He was surprised to see me bring an expensive Japanese lacquer container sets to scoop all the best dishes with fried rice fully decorated creatively with sliced lap cheong into a flower! Don't tell him that I actually took the food to the temple to offer my late father during the prayers conducted by the monks. That's how I appreciate their home style cooked dishes without MSG and colours so that my dad's soul could eat in peace too. LOLOL Don't tell the boss yeah! Sssh!

    1. hi TM, after your father's soul has eaten your dishes offerings, do you eat them or throw them away? my mother in law always give us eat the fruits after she has used them for prayers for the ancestors to eat. so it means we ate the fruits after the ancestors souls have eaten the fruits.

    2. TM : Don't worry, your secret is adfe with me LOL! It's wonderful that even in the afterlife, you bless your dad with healthy food offerings!

      Mun : I was told that we are not supposed to eat the food offered to the departed. But it would be such a waste to throw away and my family have no issues about consuming the food.

    3. That's correct that we should not eat the food that has been offered to the deceased because they are Yin spirits. We should eat the food offered to the Yang spirits like all the deities. That is believed that the Yang deities would bring blessings to us Yang humans. Those who eat Yin food might experience low spirited or mild sickness. We often hear that some family members went home feeling terribly sick after Ching Ming prayers at the cemeteries. They always blamed the hot sun instead of the food they ate by mistake. Just my 2 cents.

  7. This chap fan place is a lot classier than the norm shops (classy chap fan for classy Uptown residents...hehe!). They're all laid out in steel plates with a heater some more (I've never seen this type of chap fan place before). And the prices are also very fair, almost like our coffee-shop style chap fan. You're so lucky to have one near you :)

    1. If comparing dollar to dollar, definitely cheap. I doubt if we can get RM4.00 chap fan here.

  11. wah if only there is such a place near me, I would go eat there daily as I prefer subtle tasting food instead of strong flavourful food. price is good too especially with the discounts after regular lunch hours. do they have many customers since most people prefer very flavourful food?

    1. When I ate the mild tasting food, I immediately thought of you. Very ngam your taste hah..hah.. I think they have quiet a good number of customers. Generally, people are more health conscious and a chap fan place that offers healthier food would gain much support.
