Frank, my buddy from Shangai came back for a visit after 2 long years solely for one purpose - a 'makan' trip. Together with his ex housemate, Ken, 3 crab lovers, it was a unanimous decision to have our dinner at this restaurant, famous for it's crabs. Being the only one with the car, one chic had to ferry two 'big men' for a crabs dinner...
1kg of salted egg yolk crabs....nothing beats this!
1 kg of cheese crab - the boys' favourite.. which I found a bit too rich for my liking.
..accompanied by 1 plate of 'mantou', which goes very well with the cheese sauce
the restaurant's famous deep fried tofu (this dish is such a cliche..almost every restaurant you go to must have a deep fried tofu as their speciality)
.. or you can also opt for the other speciality tofu dish, topped with preserved vege and a little bit of gravy (we had 2 plates of this cause Frank loved it so much)
Kam Heong Lala is my absolute 'favouritest' dish in the world...of course, if only the lala are fresh. The lala served were big and juicy unlike some restaurants which serve more shells than the meat itself (which are sometimes also so scrawny looking). Taste wise I would rate it a 8/10.
and to finish off our meal with a plate of 'vege'. You need your daily dose of greens wat!
And...ta dah..the damages done for the night! 2 very satisfied boys! Bill came up to about RM150 or less (can't really recall ....it's ain't exactly polite to ask exact amount when you ain't the host right!)
I bet by now, there would probably be like 1001 blog posts raving about the food in this restaurant as it has long been established. But anyway, here are the contact details for those 'katak di bawah tempurung' who have yet to try this place!
No 2-2A, Jalan Desa 1/2, Desa Aman Puri, Kepong
Do try to get there early on weekends to beat the crowd. We're normally there by 5 ish, 6.
Before calling it a night, we headed over to Brussels in Jaya 1 for a pint of Hoegaarden Draft each.
