Kim Poh claypot chicken rice at Segambut

I visit MyDentist for my invisalign treatment almost every two weeks at Jalan Ipoh, and since they’re pretty flexible on scheduling, I always try to set it up on Fridays at around lunch time to allow me a chance to explore the surrounding eateries.

Not long ago, thanks to my friend Winnie, who works nearby, we discovered a rather awesoem claypot chicken rice place at Kim Poh kopitiam in Segambut.

Kedai Makanan Kim Poh is located a little bit away from the main stretch of shops at Segambut, within the housing estate just across the Yu Ai seafood noodle place.

The shop is manned by an old couple (I’m assuming) and the lady has been serving up claypot chicken rice for some 30 years.

While most claypot chicken rice has everything cooked in the pot with the exception of salted fish (added at the end), at Kim Poh, they add rice wine, dark sauce, fresh ginger, and the salted fish just right before serving. Giving it a fresher and slightly spicier (from ginger) taste that we really enjoy.

Like many other places, Kim Poh also serves pretty delicious steamed soup. There’s usually quite a few varieties to choose from, including salted vegetable with tofu soup, lotus root soup, ginseng with chicken soup, watercress soup and so forth.

These soup go very well with the rice, and I usually choose them over drinks instead.

With soup, expect to pay about RM 12-14 per person, pretty reasonable for what you get. Waiting time is usually around 10-20 minutes or as they cook everything from scratch.

Try it!
