Kampong, or kampung, is Indonesian and Malaysian for “village.”
This modern spin on quaint, traditional dishes is just the ticket for your taste buds. A definite smiley-faced win for all!
You’ll sit down, get tended to immediately – possibly by the owner herself! She was wonderful, sweet, and had the best recommendations from the menu. She even made me something off menu!
You’ll find Kampong in a mid-sized strip mall area in Richardson, Texas – just a few minutes north of Dallas. Why Richardson? Well, both Mom and the Beau work in Richardson, wonderfully close to this Asian fusion establishment. Spring Break allowed me the opportunity to munch out here.
Kampong Asian Fusion
720 E Campbell Rd
Richardson, TX 75081
There are multiple businesses in the area, including ARGO Data, ID games, and C.H. Robinson. With so many built-in customers, this swanky establishment would surely experience chaos between 12-2pm. Oddly enough, that wasn’t the case when mom and I stopped by for a bit o’ lunch.
We sat and had our tickets in to the kitchen within 4 minutes. Speedy service on a 1 hour lunch limit – LOVE it!
The lunch menu is not ridiculously long, which I can appreciate. Show me too many foodie-loving options and my tummy can’t decide on a dish. Ugh.
Kampong has a great range! Sushi, Curry, Noodles, Rice dishes – yummo!
I was craving Pad See Ew, not a menu item. Instead, she offered a Malaysian version of my favorite noodle dish.
You’ll notice there is only a hint of green in this dish. It was savory, but lacked veggies. I asked for a side of broccoli and was happily met with an entire head of broccoli. So yes…we definitely had leftovers.
The dishes were quite large, especially for lunch portions.
Mom ordered her standard yellow chicken curry, with pineapple chunks.
Everything was delicious!
We will most assuredly be back!
Grab a bite at Kampong. You’re sure to be impressed!
