Food FR - Kwai Lam Seafood Restaurant
Kwai Lam Seafood Restaurant
Subang New Village
Everyone was hankering for some seafood for some time now...as it was kinda late in the evening and it looks kinda rainy of late, Teluk Gong was out of the question while our usual place in North Port seemed kinda far away. So we settled for somewhere nearer and this place in Subang New Village was just right. So bundling the whole family in the car and picking up my granny where i got an earful for staring at this pretty girl in a nice tube top...anyway we made our way to the place.
There are actually many seafood restaurants down this way. Some of the more notable ones are like LaLaChong, the place with the large prawn/crab in front etc. Most of these places mushroomed during the days when the international airport was in subang. I'd still remember it, standing by the fence looking at planes landing and taking off, many patrons are filling their time by having a nice meal...just very nice.
Anyway we got to the place. Its actually in an industrial area and the restaurant is an extension of the house which i presume the owners stay in. Parking is plentiful as you can park near the warehouses or factory at the back. The roof is your typical zing type but you'd have your fans and lights on it. Ok, down to the food. This place used to NOT serve rice but they do now. So first up was the fried rice. Somebody had to have it and best to order less than the number of people in your group. You could order fried tong fun as well which is just as nice. They have other styles and types of noodles but this is not the main event anyway. Next was the fried chicken wings. This dish appears on almost all tables and its fried to a crispy brown thing which everybody loves!. You are also given some fabolous chili sauce for dipping. Actually its not for the chicken but for the next dish which was the Ikan Bakar (grilled fish) which we of course choose stingray...nicely done and not burnt like some i know..its perfect with the chili. Next up was some vegetables stir-fried in garlic and fermented beancurd (fu-yue)..goes well with the meal. Then came the crabs.
We ordered up some sweet and chili crabs which came with a generous amount of sauce. We ordered fried buns as well to dip in the sauce but the buns weren't so fresh. This was something new too as we used to bring a loaf of bread along for this. Anyway the crabs were nicely cooked and had lots of flesh. Of course they serve other types as well such as marmite, steamed and fried kam heong style which is chilies, belacan, dried shrimp and curry leaves. We also had a oatmeal prawns which was basically fried prawns with oatmeal and egg. It was so so as we definitely had better ones in Klang. Anyway the food came at a decent time although i remember once it took 1 hour before but that hasn't happened for the last 8 times i've been there. The bill came up to about RM120+ including chinese tea. Its a place worthwhile going to try for and since i keep going back...its must be pretty decent!.
