Pretty new to the Bukit Indah/Nusa Bestari area (I believe they opened March 2019) is Heng Heng Western Food, which is a nice place to get a decently priced meal! Here’s what I had on my latest visit!
Context: Came here with my girlfriend - we were initially going to eat at Kah Kah Loke before seeing this place incidentally - for I guess a chill weekend dinner.
Is it Halal?
I’m not 100% sure, but from what I saw from the menu, I don’t believe I saw any pork dishes, but for this one, I recommend you eat at your own discretion if you’re concerned about this.
Where it Is?
It is located near another restaurant that I’m a big fan of, Kah Kah Loke (Bittergourd Soup Restaurant) and what used to be the old Giant in the Bukit Indah area (now TF Value Mart Nusa Bestari). There’s free parking alongside the road where you will find Heng Heng Western Food. Quite a bright sign, quite hard to miss this one!
Address: No.3,Ground Floor,Jalan Bestari 8/2, Taman Nusa Bestari Johor Bahru
Daily: 11am to 11pm
What it Costs
Honestly speaking, they’ve got one of the best lunch sets that I’ve seen in the Bukit Indah area (granted I didn’t have it). Their lunch set menu is basically RM10.80 for a selection of items coupled with a drink, soup of the day and a dessert. I don’t know about you, but that’s crazy value for a lunch set - and I wouldn’t even say their portions are that small!
You can use that same set menu for dinner - but you won’t get the soup, drink and the dessert when you’re there for dinner. But RM10.80 for those items are still fairly reasonable for what you get. I personally ordered the Salted Egg Chicken Rice (I’m a sucker for salted egg chicken)!
My girlfriend ordered a grilled chicken with mushroom sauce (RM15.80) from the a-la-carte menu and we also had a mushroom soup to share (RM6.80). Our total came up to be RM33.40 - so equivalent to around RM16.70 per person.
Water is free here, so there’s that too, but there are quite a few interesting drinks on the menu that you might consider trying (but on the more expensive side).
This place is on Fave as well (with a 10% cashback, which is one of the higher ones). You can use the referral code I19YC to get RM5 of cashback on any of the restaurants on the app - I get RM5 into my account as well, so I would like to think of it as a win-win situation! XD
How it Tastes
I would say that my personal benchmark of a good salted egg yolk chicken main course would definitely be An Mour Cafe. This one actually comes pretty close, with what I must assume is definitely a cheaper price tag.
I think both my and my girlfriend can agree that the sauce (salted egg yolk) is REALLY nice! If you really want me to say something that could be better, I would say that the batter/the fry on the chicken is slightly better at An Mour, but this comes really close to that standard, and I only mean that as a compliment.
The chicken chop is a bit on the meh side, tastes like quite a standard chicken chop, but in general I am pleasantly surprised by the general quality of the food here because it is indeed pretty darn yummy for how cheap it is (especially for Western food).
The mushroom soup is also a bit meh - I would say it is a kind of medium level of creamy (but more on the watery side, only just), so if that tickles your fancy, you can try that too.
Service is great, you have servers who actually respond to your calls quickly and get things done, so I have a lot of good things to say about this place.
7/10. A really nice find with a really reasonable set lunch (I guess in general as well!). Honestly would say this is definitely one of my personal recommendations to answer the “Eat What Leh” question because it is reasonably and tasty!
