Lim Fried Chicken Stall @ Restaurant Wong Soon Kee, Subang Jaya, Petaling Jaya









Apologies for the lack of blog posts as I admit I've been caught in a blogging funk lately. While I've been chomping around the whole of Klang Valley, it has been numerous revisits to certain places that I've still not made up my mind about or to old haunts like this super popular fried chicken stall in Subang Jaya. Strangely enough, looking for great places to eat that maintain their standards have been super hard lately. Not sure if this is a sign of times that food proprietors don't care much about quality.
           Back to this ultra sinful place you don't want to tell your doctor about. This is my go-to-place for a mid-week pick-me-up. Occasionally I'll starve myself (since I rarely wake up in time for breakfast) till 2 to 2.30pm specially for this treat. Beating KFC and Popeyes hands down, the fried chicken here is freshly prepped (I suspect from the nearby morning market) and deep-fried in super boiling hot oil to produce to-die-for crispy skin (leave it for the last to savour).
           Just bear the crazy queues that snake around this humble little stall. You can opt to have Chinese style nasi lemak or curry chee cheong fun with your fried chicken. Their nasi lemak version won't win them any awards since it is just plain rice splashed with a bright red sweet yet not spicy sambal. You get a choice of dishes to eat your carbs with - mussels, assam fish, fried fish, greens like cabbage or long beans, and a pretty decent chicken curry. So go forth and clog up those arteries with this golden brown fried chicken.

I'm with you on this, Boo. Most places are less than average.

Ooh gorgeous golden chicken! I love that they are open during those in-between hours which means you have to work harder to bring an appetite! Subang's a maze to me - I hope I'll find this in under an hour!

Just before they open, there will always be a long que waiting. The wantan noodles and beef noodles in this coffee shop are awesome too.

"Strangely enough, looking for great places to eat that maintain their standards have been super hard lately"

Could also be cos our tastes are continually revising themselves upwards, especially if we're always eating nice things. There are quite a number of foods that I found delicious last time, but now ... just normal tasting.

This has been my fave fried chicken for the longest time! We will usually order the chicken to go with their curry chee cheong fun! When tapau'ing back, the aroma in the car is so unbearable that i can't help helping myself to some there & then!
Reply to UNKALEONG: YES, u can just order the chicken alone!

Boo I can relate to how you're feeling now.

Lately just found myself going back to the same old places for food. Not as adventurous anymore.

Sinful? Certainly. Salivatingly so? Oh, definitely! ;)

HK Epicurus said...

Jeeze that Chicken looks sinfully good! Any clues to their formula and how to make it Boo?

Is this classified as an Ayam Kapitan (my favourite when I used to live in Malaysia) or it carries a different name? Too confusing for me to understand! : )
