Lucky Loke tai chau (大炒) stall is situated just a stone’s throw away from where I live, and naturally I have been there on quite a number of occasions. However, due to the poor quality of pictures taken on previous visits, I have not had the chance to post about this place until now.

glorious garlic fish, not to be missed

Lucky Loke is quite an established tai chau place, always the busiest among the 3 places that are around the same area. We decided to have some decent dinner there after coming back from a rather enjoyable karting session last Saturday.

But first, allow me to digress a bit:

  • In the morning, Kelvin asked Kerol “hey wanna go kart?”
  • “huh? I don’t have, why do you want it?”
  • We were quite puzzled until we figured out that she didn’t have Gold Card, only Silver Cards..

sorry kim, you missed the dinner

Anyway, for the 3 of us, we ordered the must-eat signature dish that is the garlic fish (siakap), asam prawn, and a plate of Hong Kong kailan. Naturally, we have white rice to go with these dishes.

The garlic fish was excellent as usual. Served with plenty of raw garlic and chili padi on top of the deep fried fish with their special sauce (tasted like fish sauce with some vinegar and other ingredients), the texture of the fish and the taste was just right. Having it deep fried also mean that we didn’t have to worry too much on the bones.

The asam prawn was surprisingly good too, the asam base was very thick and flavorful. There’s garlic, egg plant, and tomato as garnish to the main item, the big size tiger prawns. It was just as good as the one served at restaurant Hoowan at Kelana Jaya. The Hong Kong kailan tasted a bit old this time, but it was still alright.

The dinner costs about RM 17 for each of us, not the most economical meal there is, but we are still plenty satisfied, it was just so good. Lucky Loke is also famous for their pork rib (phai kuat wong, 排骨王), you should give it a try if you haven’t yet.

Lucky Loke is located at Restaurant Kean Fatt, just directly behind the Taman Bahagia LRT station in SS3. The same restaurant also serves the famous pork noodle for breakfast and lunch.

    Goodness… My stomach is growling like having a massive landslide in me. Okay so now I’ve noted nice places for food, when I come to KL again I will visit this restaurant. Cuz RM17 for each person is not that expensive when you can get such big prawns and nice food.

  • August 22, 2007 at 10:14 pm

    ‘ham yu fa lam po’ there is very good too, but if we were to order that as well it’ll be too heavy for that particular meal I think. 🙂
