Restoran (Restaurant) Li Cheong, Bukit Beruntung

25/05/2015 Lunch at Restoran Li Cheong, Bukit Beruntung…

It was a gloomy afternoon with intermediate rain along the highway from the Rawang Memorial Park to the Toll Plaza exit to Bukit Beruntung. But why from the Memorial Park? We just attended the funeral of my cousin sister Ah Seen. She passed away suddenly on May 22 evening. It was a Friday then, and I was jogging in the park near my home where I received the shocking news via SMS in my phone from my sister Lena. I just couldn’t believe it as she was only 44 and the last time I met and spoke to her was hardly one and her half month ago during the wake of her mother (my aunty whom I called Ah Ee). Ah Ee passed away on April 9 evening.  May your soul rest in peace aunty Ah Ee and sis Ah Seen, God Bless…

So back to the Li Cheong restaurant which my brother Freddie took us there after Ah Seen’s funeral…  There were 7 of us, me, Freddie and Connie (my sister-in-law), my 2 cousin sisters and their spouse. One of my cousin sister and her husband Gary  is living in Brisbane Australia, so I guess this trip to this restaurant from the highway passing through those trunk country roads must be excited to them. Though we exit from the North South Expressway via Bukit Beruntung , the restaurant is located quite a distance from Bukit Beruntung town, in fact in one corner of nowhere as what we Malaysian used to say in a ‘solok’ area. The restaurant itself was not impressive, no air-cond, no waiter or waitress, no cashier whatever. It is manage by the boss himself who double as a chef and his wife helping around. According to Freddie their main famous dish is the wine chicken soup with eggs. As it was around lunch time (about 12.00pm), there were also a few patrons there so the waiting time for the food after the orders was quite long, around 40 minutes. We ordered of cause the famous wine chicken soup, some ‘yong tau foo’ (50 or 60 pieces), hokkien bee hoon, hokkien mee and fried rice.

The wait for the food even though 40 minutes I think was quite worth it as they tasted good especially the wine chicken. Below are the ‘yong tau foo’ we had…

Nothing to shout about, but simple and something different, just RM140.00++ for the 7 of us including drinks (a pot of Chinese tea, a bucket of ice, 1 kopi O ice and a kopi ice).

The direction to the restaurant is quite challenging if one is not use to that area. Exit the highway via Bukit Beruntung exit, then after paying your toll at the toll plaza, you will come to a T junction with traffic lights, here turn left (picture 1) and as you drive along after turning left, you will see Tesco Distribution Centre (Pusat Pengedaran Tesco) building. Go straight where you will come across another traffic light, go straight again and immediately after this traffic lights there is a few shops on your right (picture 2). As you drive along, will come to another T junction without traffic lights. Here turn right and go all the way till the end (picture 3). Along this route one will come across some nice single storey bungalows especially near the end. Once at the end, turn right and you can see Restoran Li Cheong on the your left (picture 4).

Hope these guides you to it. In google map, it seems to be Jalan Kemboja 1B/2 and those single storey bungalow along Jalan Melor. Good Luck and enjoy the food! …/tham.

  1. Tourists and celebrities go to Foh San because the restaurant does excellent marketing, but we locals prefer Ming Court, Mr Fitness said. Porridge is sweet; cheong fun starchy but gentle and dissolves; muah chee breaks open to reveal grounded peanuts, whose sweetness is made more sweet with salt.
