La-la Chong Seafood Restaurant @ Subang New Village



Last night a group of us decided to have dinner at this seafood place which was chosen because a friend of ours was working around the area. My first time eating here and the food is not too bad. Even though it was a non weekend night, the place was quite packed with diners. To start off, we had their signature Siong Tong Lala (Lala in Superior Stock) which was pretty good especially the soupy bits that came flavoured with ginger shreds, chillies and rice wine.


We were recommended their Tau Foo Kang i.e a thick soup which has tau foo cubes, sea cucumber, crab meat and prawns in it to resemble the shark fins soup. Although there was not much seafood in it, it was pretty good and we all finished the soup.


When I heard they served paku leaves (fern tops in Malay), I chose them for our vegetable dish to be fried with sambal belachan. This was very dissapointing - they didn't pick out the hard woody bits from the vegetables and you can't really taste the sambal belachan in the vegetables at all.


We had the fried sotong (calamari) which was pretty good as they were no rubbery bits which I warned them not to serve us any. It's still not up to Muhibbah standards but I thought it was not too bad.


Finally came the dishes we were all waiting for - the salted egg yolk crabs. This was fried with lots of salted egg yolks that coated the outside of the crabs. There were also small cubes of the salted egg yolks with lots of chilli padis. We were really enjoyed our crabs that we decided to order another dish of crabs.


On my friend's recommendation, we had their Marmite crabs which came in a lovely sticky sauce coating the crabs. This was yummy and we all polished them off leaving only one crab piece for my friend to bring back to her dog for his present for the day (It was the dog's birthday yesterday). Pricewise, I didn't take the bill back as my friends had spent me dinner (thanks so much!) but my friend did remark that the crabs were a tad bit expensive as they had charged us RM40 per kilogram. It was lots of fun and we stayed for a long time slowly eating the crab (the best way to savour them) while catching up with each other as the last time we met was quite some time ago.

Yup, the 'siong tong lala' is definitely yummy. But do not order their "suet san fei woo" (the flying fox of the snowy mountain?), which is basically red grouper baked in salt. It sucks.

Thanks for the tip papi. Will definitely not order that dish. Their recommended tau foo kang was pretty nice.

Don't remember I tried BB Seafood before b'coz err.. where is it-ar?

J said...

Yum - I love the 'siong tong lala' there....
:)

It's a great balance of that chinese herb taste + rice wine.... the lalas are always a bit on the small side tho...

boo_licious said...

tummythoz - BB Seafood is next door to Lala Chong. My friend say it's better as nowadays they eat at those places everyday.

J - they had the bigger ones. We opted for the medium size ones.

Bkworm said...

Dear all,

Lala Chong has opened an outlet in ARA DAMANSARA, just off Saujana crossroads on the way to the old Subang Airport... It's supposedly much quieter and less hectic.

Here's the contact number...
Tel: +60378451250

Just FYI...
