Revisit: Lucy's Kitchen @ 88 Marketplace


Purposely went to try out the Char Kueh Teow (fried broad rice noodle) at Lucy's Kitchen after a friend of mine asked to recommend a nice "Halal" Char Kueh Teow in KK. This restaurant doesn't have a Halal certificate but its a Serve No Pork restaurant and well received among the Muslim community. Besides Char Kueh Teow, I also ordered the restaurant's signature Lau Sar Sesame Ball to see any difference compared to last time. For me, consistency in food's quality can only be achieved if the boss really do the cooking, or the chefs really follow stringent rules / recipe in food preparation.


Still the same interior

3 Layer Tea and Jelly (RM4.90)

Lucy's Favorite (Dragon fruit flavored Ice Blended Drink) (RM8.90)

The signature dessert -- Lau Sar (custard) Sesame Ball (RM5.90)
The name "Lau Sar" is translated as the "liquid sand", hence suggested
the inside of this deep fried glutinous ball is some milky + salted egg
custard filling which is still in its liquid form while biting it hot,
just like a molten gold!  A failure version of this Lau Sar ball is when
the filling is solidified, which doesn't appear in state of  a "liquid sand".

Char Kueh Teow (RM9.90)

Its not the Penang style Char Kueh Teow...

Fried Meehun with Chicken and Egg (RM10.90)

Although it is serve no pork, the meat like chicken and beef must also be from halal supplier (prepared in a certain way) for muslims. Please kindly be aware that muslims need to consider halal meat like chicken/beef and not just the serve no pork thing. :) thanks

Dear Katrina, in Malaysia all local produced beef are Halal. Some imported premium beef are not but they are very expensive.
Most restauranteur use frozen chicken from meat supplier which are cheaper. I can assure you that "non-halal" chicken sold in some chinese stall is more expensive than you can think compare to halal chicken.
I hope my explanation will clear your doubts for a "serve no pork" restaurants. "Halal" certification from JAKIM come in a price thats why many small restaurants in Malaysia including those run by Muslim don't care to apply one.
