The popular farmers market Malaysian street food outfit, Kedai Makan, is now officially a brick and mortar. We opened in the old Taco Gringos spot on Thursday, January 23, 2013. Our menu rotates, however look for some Sambal Belican roasted chicken wings which are smothered in a sauce made from shrimp paste and super-spicy chilies.Black pepper clams
Usually the wings are paired with a refreshing pickled cucumber and red onion salad and served over a large scoop of rice. But hey, Kevin and Alysson vary their menu a lot, so you never know.
Kedai Makan's daily specials are usually posted on their Facebook page early enough in the day for you to plan your evening meal. And while you're at our Facebook page, be sure and give us a "Like".
Recent nightly specials have been Tau Yew Bak, which is pork cooked in soy. With that you also get a lot of star anise flavor. Many times it is served with jasmine rice, stewed egg, and pickled chili.
Other nightly specials may include Char Siu and Duck egg Gado Gado, Beef Rendang, Klang style Bak Kut Teh, and one of the local's favorites Spicy Black Pepper Clams. Many times these favorites are served with Hakka noodles.
Or on some nights it might be another favorite for late-night diners on Capitol Hill, Nasi Lemak.
And on Friday and Saturday between 12:00 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. the Kedai Makan version of the Ramly Burger makes an appearance. The Ramly Burger is served with a sweet chili slaw, egg wrapped patty, Worcestershire, onions, Maggi seasoning, and brown sauce on a grilled bun. We usually serve this new favorite late Friday and Saturday from midnight to 2:30 a.m. If you want you can team that up with drinks at Montana.
Is this Seattle’s new late night burger? Yes. Big, big yes.
Kedai Makan has been christened with the rubber chicken. Does that mean that we'll be seeing some Hainan chicken rice on the horizon? Perhaps.
But according to Kevin, the chicken, an unnamed mascot that has made appearances at Kedai Makan's Broadway Farmers Market stand serves as a reminder for the staff to have fun and not take things too seriously.
Remember Kedai Maken is a take-out eatery only, you can order & pay at Kedai, and eat at Montana! Or take it and enjoy anywhere you want!Char siu, roast pork Kedai style
