The funny thing about foodie is that we often go on a long journey to sample something that we heard is good, but at the same time ignores the more famous eateries that are much closer to us. One of such places that I’ve managed to ignore for the past 7 years or so is the steamboat place Yat Yeh Heng,
Yat Yeh Heng is what steamboat is all about this part of Klang Valley, way before the rise in prominence of the various “pulau ketam” steamboat places, buffet style steamboats like Yuen, or the slightly more luxurious style like Damansara Village steamboat.
awesome chicken wings, and pretty good fried lala
The only reason Yat Yeh Heng eluded me all these while was the simple fact that the restaurant is located too near from where I stay.
Anyway, not too long ago we finally found ourselves at the area looking for something to eat, and decided to finally give this place a try. Alongside with 4 portions of standard steamboat set, we also ordered extra serving of fish meat, a plate of kam heong fried lala, and their famous fried chicken wings.
old school ingredients, awesome steamboat
Service wasn’t the fastest when there wasn’t even very packed there, but Yat Yeh Heng does redeem itself as soon as the lala and chicken wings arrived at the table. They were delicious!
The lala is comparable to the one at Alisan, and the chicken wings were simply superb, it must be one of the best I’ve had.
As for the steamboat, the soup were good, and ingredients pretty fresh as well. Together with the chili paste plus fried shallots (I always love to mix them), it is about as good as any steamboat places, except you won’t fret over finding a place to park at Yat Yeh Heng. We had both tomyam and clear soup, and I’d suggest you to start with clear soup before tomyam lest you want to not taste the former.
Together with drinks, the total bill came up to RM 133 for 7 of us, slightly less than RM 20 per pax. Satisfying dinner indeed, steamboat doesn’t need to always be in buffet format.
During lunch time, the same restaurant has a very famous and super busy chicken rice stall.

Remember the previous post about the mysterious sign? I also posted a video on facebook, the same one like below:
Apparently these “signs” are appearing everywhere, and there’s already a guy hot on it’s trail. Check out this dedicated blog – Lambang Misteri. I’ve also seen the same signs at a few places in KL while at work.
A document related to this phenomena were recently uncovered and there appears to be a link – kolony.com.my. The mystery is soon to be revealed, I believe, but the link isn’t working for me at this time.. ermm…
