Busy Corner @ Damansara Jaya

Bet floggers and food lovers know that this restaurant serves one of the best claypot chicken rice in town. I used to frequent Busy Corner when studying @ KDU. The food is reasonably priced with generous serving, I luv the yummy soup selection too!

Believe it or not, the bill only came up to RM24 with two bowls of peanut soup + one claypot prawn rice + one claypot chicken rice + one green vege + two iced tea.

I luv the yummy soup selection from Busy Corner. Peanut soup (as seen in the picture) has always been my favourite. I think they also serve watercress soup and boo_licious' fave old cucumber soup.

The claypot prawn rice reminded me of Dome’s lousy catch of the day. This is absolutely much more better than Dome’s catch. FYI, we only ordered the small portion but it came with 6 juicy big prawns! I have to admit that the prawns are really fresh and cooked to perfection. Definitely a must try @ Busy Corner.
The usual claypot chicken rice. Simply delicious.
My confession of the day: I had a good lunch minus the hefty price tag. Save me a little more to spend on topping up my wardrobe.

LOCATION: Busy Corner is located near KDU college and Atria Shopping Complex. See KY's review for direction.

Hmm...somehow I didn't find the food here good enough. Maybe bcoz of the high standard set by Heun Kee and the one next to Maybank in Pudu. ;-) Have you tried them?

Xiu Long Bao said...

tankiasu: Heun Kee? Nvr tried before but i heard dat it is quite famous. Ok, noted on my 'must-try' list.

I love peanut soup... there's a good soup stall at tmn paramount which opens at night called Meng Kee. Give them a try but need to go early, before 8.30pm

Xiu Long Bao said...

jason: waa...gud soup selling fast? Nvr eat out @ TMN Paramount before, i tot it is only a residential area ;p

sc said...

hey xiu long bao, we just 'talk' about this and u went to busy corner ;). the soup that jason mentioned is famous, as it's msg free, but usually snapped up before 8pm. I prefer the soup @ Friendship Herbal soup though. lots of varieties..yumz (u can check out my post on it too http://food-4-thot.blogspot.com/2006/07/restaurant-friendship-herbal-soup.html)

Heard so much abt this place but have never been. Then again, I'm rarely around that area. Well, there's not much to shop at Atria, rite?

Xiu Long Bao said...

sc: haha...actually ur hot stove post reminded me of this busy corner claypot chicken rice @ DJ, so i dropped by for lunch loh. Wa, mengkee is dat famous? Now got Friendship Herbal Soup summore. Need to note dwn on my eating list ^_^

Xiu Long Bao said...

tummythoz: I dun think i noe this place till i study @ KDU. But as per Tankiasu, Heun Kee is bttr. Forget bout shopping @ Atria, it is really depressing wiv lil' shops unless u wana go shop for groceries in its small Giant supermart :)

This place is famous for the different types of claypot rice they have. Atria has some shopping mah - now they have the Big Bookshop Warehouse Fair with lots of cheap books.

Xiu Long Bao said...

hi kenny! I read ur artistic blog too :) Btw, this claypot chicken rice place is worth the try. Hope u'll enjoy it ^_^

hei jason, thx for the link!

boo_licious: Nvr knew dat Atria has Big Bookshop. During my last visit to Atria which happened to be 2 yrs ago, the lighting in the shopping complex was soooooo dark n most of the shops were closed. Dats y i found it depressing :O

Timothy said...

Xiu Long Bao said...

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
The food seems not bad to me and comes out with a reasonable price. Too bad I'm not in KL. If not, I'm going to pay a visit to this "Busy Corner".

Kay said...

That looks so good....I would like to try some of that chicken..

Xiu Long Bao said...

kay:Try the prawn too! That is my favourite. Hope u will like it ^_^

Precious Pea said...

Their peanut soup is indeed very good, my must order. Don't quite like their Thai Claypot rice, taste funny. During my last visit, the lady boss recommended us her new yam and chicken rice and i don't know if it ended up in the menu or not.

Xiu Long Bao said...

precious pea: bet u dun like the sweet sour thai sauce? Dun think they added the yam rice into the menu, but i do luv yam rice!

Char Siew Bao said...
