We managed find the place at Lukut although we are not stay over there. When we get there, we saw the last piece of bun and waiting for the order. At last, the waiter said is being ordered by someone and if we want to taste again kindly come back on next day by 11am. So we just order seafood... More

We ordered a Curry Chicken King Bun for the 2 of us. But the portion is quite big so we take away half of it. The curry chicken Bun is yummy. Will be back when I visit Lukut.

We had curry pork ribs and curry chicken. Thought that the curry pork ribs was better though both of them tasted almosy same. Curry was rather sweet. Bread was soft and tasty and went especially well with the curry. Nothing to wow about but it's one of it's kind at Port Dickson.

It has 3 variety, we bought only 1 as there was only 2 of us. Yummy chicken, too much bread though. Seen in the restaurant, most people can't finish up the bread. Go early as we couldn't get it the 1st try and have to return the next day early to buy :)

A bit difficult to find the place. But it worth the effort to give it a try. It has 3 types (chicken only, pork rib only or mix of both). The mixed flavour was out of stock. We tried the chicken only flavour. The curry was very good. But it's a bit too much for both of us. Can't finish... More

It is a must to try the delicious curry chicken bun! The bun is soft while the curry chicken tastes yummy! A lot of crowd during the weekend - suggest to make reservation before the visit!

Description
In Malaysia's rich food culture, many love eating buns and rich curry. But while it is common to take buns with chicken curry, not many have tried baking the curry inside the bun. Now with Chicken Curry Bun, food lovers can savour a unique taste sensation like no other! Fall in love with a one-of-a-kind culinary creation - the original Curry Chicken Bun.The-Prestigious-Product-Quality-Award Sometimes also referred to as Port Dickson Curry Chicken Bun or Lukut Curry Chicken Bun or Seremban Curry Chicken Bun, it is a unique dish consisting of chicken curry with potatoes and thick gravy wrapped inside a gigantic bun. Best of all, it is not too spicy so that diners of all ages and tastes can savour it. Tuck into this must-try delicacy today! HISTORY The story of Lucky King Bun began in the quiet town of Lukut, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan over three decades ago, when the husband-and-wife team of Mr. Chaw and Madam Lew brainstormed over new creating new food dishes. Being avid fans of cooking and baking with over 30 years' experience in the culinary industry, the pair decided to merge their expertise with a dish that required both skills. After much hard work and experimentation, the fruit of their labour was extraordinary - a sumptuous combination of chicken curry with potatoes and thick gravy wrapped inside a gigantic bun. Termed the Curry Chicken Bun, this wildly popular dish became an instant classic made famous through word of mouth. Today, the dish has become a massive homegrown success story with buns being churned out by the hundreds daily. However, it is still made with the same meticulous passion and quality as day one, with Madam Lew herself keeping a close eye on the entire process from preparation of ingredients to baking and cooking. The result - a mouth-watering delicacy that customers travel from near and far daily to savour! THE PROCESS Enjoying Curry in a Loaf is a simple and convenient affair, but a tedious amount of preparation goes into it as each bun is made fresh daily. Spanning about 6 to 8 hours in total, the process begins with cooking the curries as early as 6am. Over 20 different ingredients and spices are used to extract the rich distinctive flavour that customers love. Next, the curries are carefully transferred into bowls where they are first wrapped in grease proof paper before another additional wrapping of aluminium foil. The outer layer is light spread with butter to ensure that the bun will not stick to the foil after baking. Once this is complete, the freshly made dough is kneaded and cut by hand into evenly sized pieces to form loaves covering the individual aluminium foil packets. After being left to rise for several rounds, the buns are ready to be baked. Upon completion, the final touch is applied with egg yolk glazing to attain the buns' signature shiny golden brown finish.
