La La Chong

My dad was away the weekend before Mother's Day. Mom decided to head to some furniture sale some where to shop for new beds and mattresses for my new home. Mom, sis and myself ended up some where near the old Subang airport and then decided to have dinner there. There are actually plenty of seafood restaurant located in the inner parts of that area.

Anyway, since Lala Chong was near by, I suggested we head there instead.

Chicken satay. (RM7) Ordinary.

Paku (fern) shoots fried with tuna fish. (RM10) This was really something different to me. The paku was sweet naturally by itself, but to add tuna in it for extra sweetness? Tasted quite good actually. I think canned tuna was used, those with chili flavor. I don't recommend this to anyone who don't like fish though, the smell and taste of tuna lingers in the mouth.

Salted fried mantis prawns. (RM6 each) What a waste. I didn't enjoy this as much as I wanted to. One prawn is cut into three. The pieces were too small, and it was hard to get any meat out of it. Would have been better if they fried the prawn as a whole thing.

Fried lala bee hoon. (RM10) Ordinary, I guess. They used a lot of small little cute lala in the bee hoon. It gave out a lot of the seafood taste to the noodles but some how I felt like something was missing when I couldn't chew on the lala.

Honey baked mackerel. (RM18) Good stuff, and I think it would be something I can do at home. The fish was fresh and sweet. And I totally like it because there's no fish bones to bother with!

Salted egg fried crab. (1kg for RM47) We manage to finish all the other dishes, so when we were served this, ....we ask for it to be packed to go instead. I ended up having it a day after. Taste wise was quite alright but I wished I could have eaten the crabs fresh from the wok. Would have tasted better.

Overall I thought it was a nice place for seafood. Got to go early and book a nice table in the right location though. The evening sun shines into the restaurant and can be a little annoying to the eyes for those sitting facing the entrance.

Heard about this place long ago from a friend but still haven't been there lol.


tapau the crabs? *_* aiks ... lost your appetite ah? hehe ...


egg yolk crabs... i havent seen that one before!


I thought all the restaurant there already closed down. The last time i went there was 10 years ago.
Will go check it out when i back.
Nice review


I agree they should had cooked the mantis prawns whole. Guess you bit into more shells than meat.

So how you like your new home/area?


I was told their signature lala dish is totally out of this world, and I can vouch for it....

Jerome - they have another branch at Ara damansara now... ;)

joe: pic look big only ma... its small actually

ling239, mimid3vils: ohh yeah that was good. They even give japanese pickles on the side.

Well, anyways, hugs for a gd weekend.
