I stopped by this wonderful restaurant on my way back to Butterworth recently. The food in Kon Ming is very reasonably priced, nice and the staff is very friendly. Although it was my first visit, I feel at home here. They have pretty cheap set lunch menu (available from 11am to 3pm) which cost only RM38 (USD 11) for 6 to 8 pax, consisting of Baba Style Fish Slices, Lemon Chicken Chop, Seng Kua Taufu, Fu Yong Fried Eggs, and Vegetable of the day, Rice and Chinese tea inclusive.
The servings of the dishes are very generous as well. I love the flavorful Baba Style Fish Slices gravy which is sour and spicy. The fish is fresh and succulent. The crunchy okra (ladies finger) which soaked up all the tasty gravy goes down well with steamed rice. The Lemon Chicken Chop has crispy skin and the nice lemon gravy brings out the flavour of the dish. My kids love this dish. I love the soft and smooth texture of the Seng Kua Tofu. Since the use young Seng Kua (gourd), it is tender and nice. The thick starchy gravy complements this dish. The vegetable of the day was Water Convulvulus (kangkong). It was plain fried with a little tinge of wok hei (high heat wok) aroma. As usual the simple Fu Yong fried egg is everyone’s favourite. A good and cheap meal for 8 adults, one child and one toddler!
