Gold Chilli @ SS15 Review (Halal)

If you Google 'good food SS15', chances are you came across this restaurant at one point. In fact, it is so rave upon that if you search specifically for it, you'll see 'best butter milk chicken' plastered all over it. The good news is, it's Halal so you can bring your Muslim friends here. But is it really that good? I decided to give it a try when I went to Subang SS15 a while ago.

When we arrive, the shop is already packed to the brim. But lucky for us, there happened to be a 2 seat table free after 10 minutes.There is a lot of food to choose from on the menu, including all types of rice and noodles and of course a good variety of stir fry dishes. You can view their menu on Zomato site.

Since we are here, it's a must to try their famous butter milk chicken. I wanted to order sambal ikan bakar as well but unfortunately they don't serve it at that time. So we settled for Mongolia beef instead. We also ordered kangkung belacan for some extra fibre in our diet.

Boneless butter milk chicken RM9

The butter milk chicken has enough sweetness and creaminess for you to ask for more. The sauce goes extra well with rice, so you might see people around you scraping the plate clean. It's pretty decent for me, but I personally think it'll do well with more seasoning. Maybe a tad more garlic and curry leaves with give it more depth. At the moment it's nice on its own but the creaminess makes you feel satiated a bit too fast, giving you the 'muak' feeling. Do order the boneless version as it makes eating much more enjoyable.

Mongolia beef RM9.50

If you are wondering what is mongolia beef, it's basically black pepper gravy with onion and bell pepper cooked with beef slices. This dish is not too bad as well, the pepper is just enough to give it more fragrance and a kick when you eat this. The portion is good as well, in fact way more than what we were served for the butter milk chicken.

 Kangkung Belacan RM6

Kangkung belacan on the other hand, is heavily belacan-ed. If you love the funky savoury taste of belacan, this is definitely for you. But if you are more used to the mild-belacan-added-to-oyster-sauce type of kangkung belacan, this will be way too overpowering.

Overall, I think the food are pretty decent and the price is rather reasonable for Subang standard. If you are looking for Halal chinese style stir fry, this place will be for you. But I wouldn't call the butter milk chicken the best I ever had, and probably won't travel all the way just to have it again since I can cook decent butter milk chicken myself.
