John told me about this place in Shah Alam near to iCity that serve up very good seafood with reasonable price. With the birthday of John & Julian being in June, we decided to head there to celebrate.

The shop is quite new and its actually located at the Seksyen 7 road from iCity & UITM heading to Bukit Raja, Klang area. In Chinese, the restaurant name is “da fu gui”. The restaurant is 2 shops with aircond but we preferred to sit outside as the weather was good on our visit.

John ordered (since he is paying) 2 of their famous grilled stingray and it was good! The stingray is grilled with curry like paste served with lime juice and chili sauce. Each of the stingray cost us RM20.

Next up is their lala (clams) steamed in “siong tong”, you can add meehoon to it if you want but we didn’t. The lala is big and the soup is great, this dish cost RM24. I enjoyed the mussels very much here, its steamed in a paste of garlic and ginger costing RM 30 for a big pot!

We ordered a few other stuff like their “fung yuk” (claypot pork with lots of goodies), stir fried lotus roots, marmite chicken and salted egg mantis prawns.

It cost us RM331.40 for 8 dishes and 6 big bottles of beer for about 8 pax. Price is reasonable but most importantly the food is great! I was told by John that weekend is crowded so better to go early or do a reservation.

Their famous Penang laksa steamed fish is not bad too at RM57 using “hong zhoi” (red snapper) fish but unfortunately this came last and I was already quite full!

PJ: Fried Fish Head & Bak Kut Teh @ Chiew Sang Restaurant
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Klang Valley, Places to Eat, Selangor | icon4 10 1st, 2010| icon3Comments Off on PJ: Fried Fish Head & Bak Kut Teh @ Chiew Sang Restaurant

We didn’t know what to eat one afternoon and wanted to try something new and so John says he will take us to this shop his friend took him in SS3, PJ. I had actually passed Chiew Sang many times but thought they only sells bak kut teh.

The moment you walked in to Chiew Sang you will see an Indian guy making the bak kut teh in front, as Brian called it Indian BKT… LOL…

Anyhow, we got a table for 8 and John ordered their famous fried fish head, some clear soup bak kut teh, their stewed bak kut teh, a tofu plus a vege dish.

The fried fish head is very tasty with a good hint of spiciness in it, very appetizing to go with rice. Fish is fresh and we almost cleaned the plate.

I like the clear soup bak kut teh, this is almost the teow chew style, clear but yet tasty and light. The only unfortunate part is that we ordered for 3 and the portion is still relatively small.

The other dish we had is the stewed bak kut teh, this is something new, basically they are very tasty stewed pork, very tender and tasty with the nice and thick stewed sauce.

I enjoyed the lunch here very much but only thing for me is the portion is a little small, so you gotta order a bit more and the price is not that cheap, so be prepared to spend a little more but at least the food here is good :).

Pontian Wanton Noodles House specialized in handmade wanton noodles which comes in various style. This is a very specialized shop which is what I like, just wanton noodles but available in the below style:

1. Chili sauce
2. Black sauce
3. Chili plus black sauce (their signature)
4. Tomato sauce
5. Chili plus tomato sauce

These are the options that comes in dry style with some vege, char siew and fried wanton with the noodles plus a bowl of soup with wanton. It cost RM4 for small, RM5 for medium and RM 6 for big size, pretty ok for an aircond shop.

Other styles available for the wanton mee includes laksa (curry), dry with dumplings and dry with chicken feet. There are also snacks option for plate of dry wanton or soup dumplings, fried dumplings, etc.

The variety of desserts available here are not bad as well and it looks very teow chew as they have things like tao suan and also yam paste with ginko. The funny thing they called tang yuen here as “Ah Boiling”, I wonder how that term came up.

I would say that taste is alright but what is nice about this place is the quality of the noodles and wanton skin itself that is nice here. The shop claimed that the noodles are handmade, no preservatives and won’t stick when take away. I remember being taught by a master wanton noodles maker that to test the quality of the noodles is to order take away and if the noodles doesn’t stick, they are good quality.

I ordered the noodles with black and chili sauce. It’s a bit spicy for me but after a while its ok. We got an additional plate of dry wanton and it was really nice and crispy but a little oily though. Overall I enjoyed the noodles mainly of its quality and reasonable pricing, will be back to try the other types of style as well as the desserts soon!
