Anyone knows how XO Loh Mee taste like? Or have you heard of this dish?
There’s this place in Sunway, behind the Puchong LDP highway, offerning a pretty good variety of what I call as ‘special’ Chinese food. It’s like one of those ‘tai chow’ places, where you order rice & dishes for dinner. :D
The place I’m referring to is called Tian Tian Lai Seafood Restaurant, located in a food court in PJS10, Sunway. It’s situated in a housing area, & the small food court is behind a row of shop houses along the LDP highway (before Puchong toll).
If you’re observant enough, as you come out of the Puchong toll, there’ll be a turning, & one row of shop houses on your upcoming left. The food court is right behind the shop houses, so if you take the first left turn after the Puchong toll, you’ll see the food court on your right.
The XO Loh Mee is really nice, & costs RM5/person. My family ordered one for 3 persons, so that came up to RM15. The taste was just ‘wow’ & there’s crab meat & medium-size prawns in the dish as well! Not bad for RM15, eh? Accompanying the Loh Mee is definitely the black vinegar, which is a MUST. The entire dish will taste really good with the fragrance & taste of the XO & the black vinegar, and the noodles, prawns, & crab meat blend very well together. Somehow it tastes like ‘Shark Fin Soup minus the shark fins’! *lol* :P

The other 2 dishes that we had was the Marmite Chicken & the ‘stir-fried Yau Mak with preserved beancurd’. Both was excellent well, & the generous serving for 4 people costs us RM8 for each of the dishes only! Coolness! Altogether, we spent RM31 for a delicious meal & I’m indeed satisfied with the decision to go there for dinner. Well, the only thing is that we’ve to wait for quite a while as the service is quite slow. But overall, food wise, I could give an A-!
Marmite Chicken…we started on the dish already when I took both the pics!
What's good about this chicken is that the taste & fragrance of the marmite is SO evident! It somewhat tastes like the honey-glazed BBQ chicken wings, but smothered with marmite. Wow. Irresistable! :P
Stir-fried Yau Mak with preserved beancurd
You'll be wondering why I put this common vegie into this site, eh? Well, truthfully, this vegie dish is one of the better ones that I've tasted in the many places that I've been to. The preserved beancurd ('fu yue' in Cantonese) is generously included in stir-frying the vegie, & the bits & pieces of chilli padi (bird's eye chilli) gives a wonderful kick to the common vegie! :P
