Lim Fried Chicken @ Restoran Wong Soon Kee, Subang Jaya SS14

Satisfying Lim Fried ChickenLim Fried Chicken

Subang Jaya SS14 is pretty well known for plenty of good food and ultimately famous for Bah Kut Teh in Subang area. There are at least four Bah Kut Teh restaurants just along the same street. Now I’m not going to talk much about Bah Kut Teh but instead, I’m going to ‘talk cock’ and introduce you readers to the best fried chicken in Subang Jaya.


Located at the corner lot of along Jalan SS14/1, Lim Fried Chicken (LFC) serves the best fried chicken in the whole Subang Jaya area, some would say in Petaling Jaya as well. LFC is a stall within Restoran Wong Soon Kee and they are only in business during lunch time. Go during lunch time and expect a long queue and hope for empty seats around. However long the queue is, customers will patiently queue up just to taste that juicy in the inside and crispy on the outside fried chicken.

The fried chicken is served with side dishes (usually veges or fish or cuttlefish) or your choice, curry and their home-cooked yummilicious sambal. If you’re not sure what to order, they’ll serve you rice with fried chicken, a side vegetable dish with sambal. Even that is enough to whet your appetite and to give you a satisfying meal.

The chicken thighs and breasts are prepared fresh every day they fry it right at the restaurant – so that the fried chicken is always hot and fresh from the deep-fry wok. The generously large piece of chicken is the reason why many customers love the fried chicken there.

If you wish to try something different, there’s always Chee Cheong Fun to replace your rice and a variety of side dishes that are all pretty good. There are mutton, fried Kembung fish, sambal sotong, eggs and two types of vegetables – stir-fry cabbage and long beans.

Excellent choices of side dishes. Stir-fry cabbage, long beans, sambal sotong and more. Chee Cheong FunSelection of side dishes


LFC is self-service so you queue up, order your food, pay and walk away with a plateful of goodness. My usual order is rice with fried chicken, long beans, egg and flooded with awesome curry and a generous scoop of sambal. My usual order cost me RM9.00 and it’s RM5.50 for that one piece of fried chicken. Pricey, yes but it’s worth to pay that much because it’s truly a satisfying meal.

So if you’re somewhere in Subang Jaya and can’t decide what to have for lunch, why not give Lim Fried Chicken a try. I’m quite sure you’ll love it.

Poor Service in Subang Jaya Noodle House Leaves a Bad Aftertaste

After a long day in Ipoh and a tiring drive back, we look forward to a nice dinner nearby our house. It’s a Sunday so as usual, most of the restaurants in Subang are lining up with customers. We decided to have dinner at a particular noodle house, which I choose not to name them, for our dinner and it was definitely a bad choice.

After getting a parking spot, we head over to the noodle house which was rather busy too. It’s the only shop around that area which was not as packed but I can see many families with kid dining there so I was hoping that they will have a baby chair for Jade Lynn too. We got a table and a foreign worker (most likely Nepalese) came over with the menus. Immediately, I asked for a baby chair. Although I see many baby chairs but and they are all taken. He went off and not knowing whether he heard my request, I asked another foreign worker to find me a baby chair – that’s when I realized that all the workers in the restaurant are foreigners and it’s a Chinese Noodle House! Wifey is carrying Jade Lynn because we still haven’t got a chair for her and the first guy came back with an empty look. Thinking that these guys couldn’t understand me, I asked the supervisor (she’s Nepalese or Burmese too although she speaks rather poor Cantonese with a bad accent) for a baby chair but I was being ignored once again.

The first Nepalese guy took our order and was struggling to understand our orders so we had to order by pointing to the number on the menu rather than telling him what we want.

After a good five minutes, still without a baby seat for Jade Lynn and wifey was getting pretty annoyed, I stood up and went around hoping to find one. Just as I expected, I found an empty one in a hidden corner, a place where they would probably keep the baby seats, and nobody bothers to get it for me. I was terribly annoyed at that point and went over to grab it myself. Only then, we finally get to seat Jade Lynn down properly for her meal. That’s after a good ten minutes after arriving.

A while more, our food came but once again, they pissed me off. They missed out my order and it’s the exact food my sister-in-law was having and we asked for two sets of it, and yet they screwed up. It took them another five minutes for my meal to be served but the food was just bad… flat cold – as if the Char Siu was left there hanging the whole day and was all fats.  The bean sprouts tasted like pepper with fried shallots, pretty much tasteless. And they served normal white rice instead of fragrant oil rice which usually comes with a meal. It was absolutely a horrible experience.

Not wanting to ruin my family’s dinner, I decided to keep my cool and not make a big fuss out of it. However, I still have pretty much heat in my system so I left a bunch of nasty comments on their Foursquare location instead. Hopefully one day the restaurant owner, and hopefully a Malaysian, would read it one day. I’m not discriminating these foreign workers; I strongly feel that if they do not understand the customers, they shouldn’t be there.

Bad service and poor food quality is absolutely unacceptable so that was our last time patronizing that place.

Fried Laksa at Restoran Well Cook Gourmet, SS14 Subang Jaya

We all know that Penang is undoubtedly the most famous place for hawker food. Being a Klangite and a so-called half-Penangite now, I really love the hawker food in Penang.

Penang Laksa, in particular is a very famous hawker food in Penang. Penang Laksa is unlike any other Laksa in Kuala Lumpur. Penang Laksa is made with mackerel (ikan kembung) soup and its main distinguishing features are the asam or tamarind which gives the soup a sour taste and prawn paste.

It’s pretty hard to find any good Penang Laksa here in Klang Valley but if you’re in for a replacement, try having Fried Laksa for a change.

Yes, it’s Fried Laksa and it’s made famous by restaurant owner Mr. Chin Gok Ton, who is a Penangite. Mr. Chin previously ran a successful foodcourt stall at The Mall at Jalan Putra in Kuala Lumpur before setting up Well Cook Gourmet in Subang Jaya SS14.

The Fried Laksa is a creation of his wife, Teoh Gim See a few years back using laksa ingredients and dried prawns. Ever since then, the Fried Laksa has been the talk of town and was also featured on The New Straits Times.

I’ve introduced quite a number of people to this restaurant and they all love the Fried Laksa. And if you haven’t tried the Fried Laksa, I would strongly recommend that you give it a try. You can’t find Fried Laksa anywhere else in Malaysia.

Restoran Well Cook Gourmet is located along Jalan Subang Utama and the link to Pantai Baru Highway and the restaurant is a nice little set-up and definitely very clean.

Part of the reason we love to go there it’s because the restaurant is really tidy and clean. The staffs working there are a pleasant bunch and they always greet you with a smile. Besides good hospitality, Well Cook Gourmet also served really good hawker food. This halal Chinese restaurant is like a food court, offering up to 32 dishes, except for the fact that all the food is prepared in one kitchen.

Restoran Well Cook Gourmet was originally famous for its claypot noodles and rice. But since the Fried Laksa came along, it has stolen the limelight over other dishes.

So if you want to give Fried Laksa a try, here’s how you can get there:

Restoran Kar Hiong, Subang Jaya SS18

Looking for a great family restaurant in Subang Jaya can be rather tricky. Although there are plenty of places to go in Subang, finding the right restaurant that will please everyone is definitely not easy to come by. Thank goodness, we have found a few and we hope to find more.


We found this trusty little place in Subang SS18 that serves good food at a very reasonable price and we have been patronizing this place quite frequently for the past two years. Restoran Kar Hiong is a nice family restaurant that dishes out great home-cooked Chinese food.

Famous for their vinegar pork-leg and steam fish with minced ginger, they do have plenty more great dishes to offer. Obviously, we have our usual favourites but during our last visit, we decided to try something else in their menu. One great thing about their menu is that they have three different sizes for every dish. However the price for fish dishes is according to size of the fish.


Ordering food for four people is always easier when we do not have to worry about having too much food on the table which we can’t finish. So we decided to order four dishes and they were:

Kam Hiong Lala

Vegetarian Curry

Marmite Chicken

Egg Foo Yong (Foo Yong Tan)

We didn’t have to wait very long for our food to be served and the dishes were served almost the same time. The Kam Hiong Lala was surprisingly yummy and the Vegetarian Curry was rather mild, just nice for my sister-in-law who can’t really handle the heat. The Egg Foo Yong was simply awesome. Of all dishes, I personally like the Marmite Chicken – diced chicken meat glazed with marmite sauce stir-fried to perfection! Another thing that I need to mention is their service. They have sufficient workers to serve all the tables and every time we need a refill of tea and rice, there’ll always be someone to attend to us.

When it’s time to pay the bill, we are pleased that the whole meal only cost us less than RM60 plus rice and Chinese tea.

Restoran Kar Hiong is obviously a non-halal restaurant and it is located along Jalan Subang Utama right across the SS17 Fire Station. Now do take note that there are TWO Restoran Kar Hiong along the same row of shops and they are both from the same owner. We’ve tried both outlets and both are as good. Both restaurants are nice and clean, comfortable and most importantly, baby friendly. Yes, they do have nice and clean baby chairs so don’t worry bringing your own baby chair.

So if you’re ever in Subang Jaya area, head over to Restoran Kar Hiong at the address below:

Ah Ping Bah Kut Teh, a Klang delicacy in Subang Jaya

SS14 is perhaps the only one place where I can find the most Bah Kut Teh shops in the whole Subang Jaya vicinity. Being a Klangite, I’m love Bah Kut Teh(BKT) and I’m pretty picky about it too. The only shop in SS14 that can actually satisfy my BKT craving is Restoran Ah Ping Bah Kut Teh, the best BKT in Subang.

Ah Ping BKT is perhaps the only shop that serves a good pot of Klang-style BKT. Now there are plenty of BKT restaurants now in Klang Valley and all of them have different taste with different ingredients. Some BKT operators claim that they serve authentic Klang BKT but being a Klangite, I know very well which is authentic and which is not.

Most restaurants nowadays like to serve BKT in clay pot, unlike those days when they only serve it in a small ceramic bowl with nothing else but pork and soup. With the clay pot, more additional ingredients can be served such as pork intestines, button mushrooms, Enokitake mushrooms or better known as Golden Needle mushrooms, fucok and taupok. Some places they even dished in abalone and scallops just to make it more interesting and obviously, more expensive. Now I love my BKT just the way it is, a good piece of pork in nice thick herbal soup. I don’t mind the extra mushrooms, fucok and taupok but nothing else. Condiments with garlic and cili padi is a must. Another item which is very popular for dipping is the Yau Char Kwai.

At Ah Ping, you have the choice of having soup-base or dry BKT. Dry BKT is basically a kung-po style dish with pork, shredded dried cuttle fish, dried chillies in thick soya sauce boiled till it’s almost dried up. It is also one of my favourite dish at Ah Ping BKT. The dry kung-po BKT was not a common BKT dish until the late 90’s.

Ah Ping’s clay pot BKT is best served with fucok, taupok and button mushrooms. I never quite like the lettuce in my clay pot BKT as it tends to dilute the soup.

Whenever we’re there, we will make everything is nicely cleaned up. We will ask for extra soup and usually that too will be enjoyed till the very last drop.

As you can see, we enjoy Ah Ping BKT soup a lot and we drink it by the ladle.

Ah Ping and wife are from Klang and both of them are health freaks. The cycle a lot and some times the can close for business just to go for cycling trips.

Now Ah Ping BKT opens daily except for alternate Tuesdays. They’re open for business from 5pm onwards and usually closed by 9.30pm or sometimes earlier. I will definitely bring my friends to Ah Ping BKT anytime. Their price is pretty reasonable too. A serving for 2 person is less than RM20.

So if you’re ever in Subang Jaya area and craving for BKT, head on down to Restoran Ah Ping Bah Kut Teh at the address below:
