KCR is probably the first restaurant that I visited when I arrived in Sydney in 2008 and also the first restaurant where I celebrated my first birthday here ;p I'm not sure how long this place has been there but one thing for sure is the sign of the restaurant name has slightly faded away which indicates it must be there for quite a long time now.
Enough intro. Went to KCR 2 times last week, one was with Ms.B from Indo and later with my high school teacher. The dishes that I ordered are always the same.
The local favourite is definitely the shantunng chicken, salt and pepper calamari and green beans in XO sauce. So when u're about to order, when u said shantung, calamari and green bean, they'll definitely know what u mean without having to mentioned the 'salt and pepper' ;p
So here are the mighty foods, our favourite dishes in KCR....
First one is the Shantung Chicken. It not like any other shandong chicken that is served with brown-ish soy based sauce but this one is based on Vinegar, chillies and heaps of spring onions. The sounds of vinegar and chicken might turn u off but trust me, it does increase your appetite to eat more of this!! On top of that, the chicken is deep fried until that skin turns crispy and yummy!
|Shantung Chicken $12.00|
|Green Bean in Malaysian Sauce $12.80|
|Salt and Pepper Calamari $12.80|
|Wonton Soup $7|
The deep fried fish fillet in sweet corn sauce is another great dish in KCR. :)
|Fish fillet in sweet corn sauce $12|
|Sweet and sour pork $11|
