When I drive to and from work everyday, I will pass this shop at a corner of the traffic light and I only know that it sells steamed fish.
It was until the Raya holidays that we decided to give it a try, and it’s only then that I found out that it’s the quite famous Lan Jie Steamed Fish.
The setup is pretty simple with about a dozens of tables, and the dinner crowd soon followed once we were seated. The captain there suggested to us to order a fish for each of us, which we ended up regretting heeding his call. The Steamed Tilapia is priced from RM15 onwards and there’s only 1 variety that you can choose from, which is just plain steamed, you can however choose how spicy you want it to be though.
Well, you know what I mean why we regretted heeding the captain’s words? The fish is pretty big and can easily be shared for 2 people. I chose the super spicy version of course that comes with lots of bird’s eye chili.
May ordered the spicy-less version. I have to say that the fish is really really fresh and it’s just delicious. I have never thought that by just plain steaming the fish can be so good (and most of the time, restaurant outside will normally prepared it by other method).
3 dishes cost us about RM45, pretty expensive for dinner and we are stuffed! Would be just nice if there’s only 1 fish.
Kayden enjoying his rice for dinner as well.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this place for fish lovers as it’s really one of a kind. And you know it’s famous when you have someone like Douglas Lim eating it as well right?
Can you see him? He’s the one in black.
