The last time I visited Lucky King Bun was back in 2012. Back then, they only had the factory and restaurant in the quiet town, Lukut at Port Dickson. I am quite pleased to know that they had expanded to Seremban. Today, you no longer need to drive all the way to Lukut to get your hands on Lucky King Bun’s famous buns. The famous buns – Chicken Curry Bun, Pork Curry Bun or Yin Yong Bun (a mix of curry and dongpo pork bun) are all available at their new branch in Seremban.
Lucky King Bun
Lucky King Bun’s restaurant in Seremban opens every day from 11.30am – 10.00pm except Tuesdays and Public Holidays. The best time to get your hands on these fluffy and buttery buns is when they are just out from the oven. We arrived at about 11.00am and had the chance to watch the staffs prepared and baked the buns. If you do not know what is this famous bun is all about, here is a brief description of it.
A unique dish consisting of either chicken curry with potatoes and thick gravy, pork curry or a mix of curry and dongpo pork wrapped inside a gigantic but soft and buttery bun.
This is the Yin Yong Bun. The curry pork and dongbo pork were wrapped separately before they were wrapped with dough and thereafter baked to perfection. Each bun is large enough to be shared with 3 to 4 persons.
All buns are prepared and baked fresh daily. Out of the three different flavors, I like the curry chicken the most. The gravy of the chicken curry was thick. It was savoury and very aromatic, a great curry for dipping purpose.
The other specialty of Lucky King Bun is their Dragon Tiger Seafood Pot. This extraordinary dish is a combination of milky & mild curry soup, fused with generous servings of seafood ingredients such as crabs, prawns, squid, mussels and handmade meatballs served in a boiling pot.
Rice noodles and tauge were served as sides to fit as complement between the piping hot soup and fresh succulent seafood.
You may add additional crabs, prawns, meatballs and etc if you like at additional costs. Abalone is also available as add-ons.
Apart from the buns and the seafood pot, we also had the Milky Fried Fish – fried fish with creamy and buttery sauce. The flesh of the fish were removed from the fish before they were fried making it easier for customers to pick the flesh from the plate. Even though the fish was fried, the flesh wasn’t too dry and it goes very well with the creamy and buttery sauce. If chili padi is added to this dish, it would be even better.
This is the fried brinjals served with dried squid strings. Don’t take too long to eat them as the brinjals will turn soggy after a while. We took too long to take pictures and our fried brinjals had turned soggy when we had them.
This neatly served and decorated Kunyit Fried Rice is fragrant and but it had a slight burned smell. The fried rice had a light kunyit taste and is fried with lap cheong (Chinese sausage).
It is easy to locate Lucky King Bun’s new restaurant in Seremban. After exiting the Seremban toll, just turn right on the first junction and go straight. You will see Lucky King Bun on the right side of the road. Just navigate your way there and you are all set.
There are two storeys to this restaurant and I estimate that the restaurant could cater to about 100 to 150 persons at any one point in time. The buns are also available for takeaways and are great gift for family and friends.
