ronnycakes reviews: Lala Chong; Ara Damansara

Lala Chong is situated in a pretty hidden area of Ara Damansara, somewhere deep inside the kampung area and even though it is buried so deep, people still flock to the eatery and I hear that is incredibly difficult to get a table on weekends if you don’t call and reserve a table in advance.
What makes Lala Chong so popular is that they serve quality seafood at low prices, without compromising on taste. The restaurant actually dates back a decade ago having originally garnered popularity near the Subang Airport where it still operates.

First up we had one of their signature dishes, the Spicy Pucuk Paku (Fern) with Tuna (RM12). The combination sounded odd even to me and I was a bit skeptical about this dish, but I was pleasantly surprised after tasting it. The ferns were crunchy and an extra kick was given to it by the birds-eye chillis as well as the canned tuna fish.

Clams in Chinese Wine Broth
What’s a visit to Lala Chong without trying their clams? We had another popular one, the Clams in Chinese Wine Broth (Siong Tong Lala) (RM15) which was steamed clams in very flavourful Chinese Wine broth. The lala meat was a little bit small for my liking (I’m accustomed to meatier ones :p) but it was fresh and went really well with the broth.

Beancurd with Minced Meat
The Beancurd with Minced Meat (RM12) was what you normally get at chinese restaurants.

Sweet and Sour Crab
What’s a seafood meal without crabs?
We had the Sweet and Sour Crab (RM50). Crabs are priced at RM50 per kg and are fresh and meaty.

Deep Fried Mantou
Deep-fried mantou (flour buns) were ordered at RM1.50 per piece to mop up all the gravy of the crabs. I absolutely love the texture of deep-fried mantou, crispy on the outside and smooth on the inside. Thumbs-up!

If you’re looking for good seafood at a reasonable price, Lala Chong is the place to visit especially for family dinners! Although they don’t serve pork, the halal status of this restaurant is a little vague so if you’re bringing some Muslim friends do call to make sure.
Parking is ample as they have their own parking lot.

Can't agree though. Crowded? Yes. Very, to the point of overwhelming although this is in the middle of nowhere literally.

But none of the seafood dishes managed to wow us, even the acclaimed clams.
