Over the X’mas and New Year holiday, we went to a friend’s place in Serendah for an overnight excursion and a little bit of R&R, and of course, one of the agendas is to try some of the more unique foods in the area.
R Cheng Tilapia Wantan Mee at Rawang
So the next morning, we went to R Cheng Tilapia Wantan Mee to try this rather unique dish only available here.
The restaurant is located in a residential area just a few minutes away from Rawang town center. Seating area is semi-alfresco, with a roof, no walls, and plenty of ceiling fans to keep you somewhat comfortable. While there are quite a few dishes to choose from the menu, the star here is the tilapia.
we ordered all six types of tilapia wantan mee
There are six choices to choose from, and you can have them with rice, or in their unique wantan mee style. We chose the latter and tried all six flavors.
Each dish is priced at RM 13.50 comes with a portion of wantan mee and a small tilapia that’s either steamed of deep fried. The flavors are:
- 金针 golden mushroom – classic with steamed tilapia, enoki, garlic, & ginger
- 酱蒸 bean sauce – brown bean sauce with deep fried tilapia
- 干煎 deep fried – self explanatory, with some chili too
- 油滑 classic oiled – steamed with soya sauce & oil, plenty of fried garlic
- 咖喱 curry
- 东炎 tomyam
the chicken wings pretty good too
The wantan mee was rather good, the fish tasted fresh and flavorful regardless of the preparation method, and the different sauces were all spot on, including the tomyam flavor (usually lacking in Chinese shops). Go for the deep fried version if you struggle with fish bones, otherwise the steamed version gives you slightly more flavors.
Additionally, we also had some chicken wings (RM 3.50 each) to “supplement” the meal. They were pretty good too, crunchy on the outside, juicy inside, with good belacan taste infused.
If you are looking for something special, this is definitely worth checking out.
