With horny’s awesome driving skill, we somehow arrived at Sungai Buloh, when we had initially wanted to go to Puchong Kepong for bak kut teh. Since we were already pretty much half way to Rawang, we decided to go the extra mile to sample the famous Steamed Tilapia fish at ‘Sister Lan’ (Lan Cheh in Cantonese) road side restaurant.
check out my pro way of eating a fish!
The fish was really good, it was the best tilapia I’ve ever had. They steam it with alot of diced garlic, very finely shredded ginger, and some chopped chili padi. The sauce is a very light blend of soya with some other sauce. All these is topped with some parsley and sliced spring onion.
now look at suan‘s noob way of annihilating her lunch
The ingredients, especially the strong aroma of ginger, garlic, and parsley, were especially effective in doing away the undesireable smell that is often associated with fresh water fish such as tilapia. The fish is steamed just right, properly cooked and yet not overly done, which left the meat still very tender. The sauce was just the right taste that I hardly have to reach for the soya saucer.
we had something else going together with the fish too
Other than the fish, we ordered 2 dishes of vege and a prawn entry to complete the meal. The salted prawn was excellent, fried baby kailan was passable, but do avoid the kangkung belacan as it was not even average.
Overall, this is definately a place worth visiting if you do not mind t he half hour drive from KL. The tilapia is a must-eat and the salted prawn was also one of the best I’ve had.
omg my mad skillz in map
I am guessing most of us aren’t very familiar with Rawang, so here’s a slightly in depth direction.
- From KL, using the PLUS highway, take the Rawang exit
- After pay toll, go straight till you find a T junction, take a right to Rawang
- Go straight, pass a few intersections, till you are going up a slope, turn right at the traffic light on top of the slope (which is also an overhead bridge)
- Go straight for almost a kilometer or so till you pass a pedestrian bridge overhead
- The restaurant will be on your left just about a hundred meters or so after the bridge
- Enjoy the fish!
