We reached Jakarta just at after work peak hours rushing in traffic with everyone else to get to our hotel to get ready for our meeting next early morning.

After checking in, we decided to catch a quick but good dinner. Pak Sky suggested Bakmi GM which he had tried before and so we headed to the nearest one for dinner.

Bakmi is like sarawak kolomee but using maggi like noodles. Its topped with small pieces of chicken and mushroom plus vege. You will be given a small bowl of tasty soup to take with the noodles too and mixing some to the noodles makes it easier to eat.

There’s a set promotion, just Rp.20,000.00 for a set of bakmi special with 2 pieces of pangsit goreng and tiny little mineral water bottle. But being greedy as usual, we ordered more pangsit goreng, chicken siew mai and also tofu stuffed with meat (like yong tau foo la).

The pangsit goreng is technically fried wanton but with little filling and lots of crispy skins. They provide a reddish sweet sauce to take with it.

Overall, its a pretty good dinner and service is good as well, all of us walked away with bloated stomach 😉

Sam You is a very well known place by PJ folks for good food plus good price. So don’t be surprise if you can’t get a table if you don’t do your booking but there are some tables outside the restaurant you can sit too if you don’t want to wait.

The service here is fast, efficient and helpful too. I reserved a table for 8 of us to celebrate my mum’s birthday last weekend.

We were offered a promotion of seafood pot at RM25 only and “chak sing pan” (seven stars grouper) fish at only RM7 per 100g.. that’s quite ok for an aircond restaurant. We went for the seafood pot but took stir fried fish fillet instead of the whole fish.

The other goodies we ordered are their self made tofu (with soy milk) with are braised with fishballs, stir fried asparagus and pork ribs.

Overall the food is good but I find the ribs a little too sweet and the fish fillet a little too salty. Most of the stuff are valued for money but the ribs cost a bit more. The bill came to Rm130++ for 8 of us, not too bad at least service is fast and good here and that’s a reason why there’s always such a large crowd here.

So if you plan to visit Sam You, make sure you reserve a table ;).

Subang Jaya – Fried Rice & Fish Curry @ Long Khee
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Klang Valley, Places to Eat | icon4 12 8th, 2008| icon3Comments Off on Subang Jaya – Fried Rice & Fish Curry @ Long Khee

Restoran Long Khee in SS15 in Subang Jaya is a well known place for many staying in Subang Jaya. I especially love 2 things here, their fried rice and their fish head curry (assam style). Long Khee is packed on peak dinner hours most of the time.

I was here for dinner again and this round, we ordered some of the yummy fried rice (cannot resist), their fish curry, homemade tofu, wuxi pork ribs, fried prawn paste and fried vege. The fried rice is good as always, full of flavour with some bbq pork (char siew), eggs, meat in it and the rice are all one by one on its own. I am serious, their fried rice is my favourite stuff here! Whenever I think fried rice, I think of this place :).

The fish curry is good too, instead of head we got the flesh which are fried first before cooking it in the curry with vegetables. Its not too sour or too rich nor too watery. Its pretty good and it really makes me took more rice than I should :(.

The other dishes are so so la… the wuxi pork ribs is quite nice, but a bit pricey. Tofu is very soft, first fried then cover with a gravvy with some vegetables, mushrooms and shrimps. The fried prawn paste (her kor) with dried chili is quite nice, the taste is set just right in my opinion. The vegetables are nice too, they add a hint of cooking wine to it.

The above set me back by RM125 on a dinner for 7 persons. The food is good here, but there is always a long wait, so if you can, go early ;).
