Restoran Laut Sungai Yu @ Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Klang

Despite having a girlfriend that stays in Klang and yes, recently upgraded to the Wife, we can really count with two hands, the places we eat around the Klang area.

A typical weekend scenario usually involves fighting the jam back to town, eat some funky place we had in mind, spend the whole day and night in KL and fetch her back late at night or the next morning.

The memorable rare meals are usually none other than Bak Kut Teh.

So i found myself pleasantly surprised to visit this place after an invite from the relatives.

Basically a no frill place that can get very crowded. Reservations are to be made the day before, if not you could get one of the two replies "can, sit outside" or "can, 9pm la".

Signature dishes include the coconut prawn which is essentially tom yum soup made to kill of all signs of bacteria lying on your tongue and the stingray grilled with their own concocted marinade.

The clams were rather small but were steamed with a strong alcoholic broth which was welcomed.

It must be way too long since i had belacan kangkung because i found the vegetable so appetising that i finished half a plate of rice with it.

Other dishes that we ate that night included the salted egg yolk mantis prawns that was well coated and the mango chicken which was overfried.

Overall the food was well cooked and cheap, all the dishes only cost in the range of a RM100 thereabouts. Thats value eating after a RM100 per pax Sage Meal.

Address and contact details:

Restoran Laut sungai yu
No. 31-0, Lorong Batu Nilam 3B,
Bandar Bukit Tinggi
41200 Klang, Selangor
Tel 03-33258808

Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Simple seafood, well cooked chinese dishes and affordable except for the overfried chicken, the extra long queue and having to sit outside, rain or shine.

i only need two fingers to count the number of times i've eaten in/around klang =) but i keep reading about this centro mall place in klang that sounds promising...

Amelia said...

I love this place too despite the long wait. I would usually call them to make reservation. Next time, you are in Bukit Tinggi area, you might wanna try Hock Seng (near AEON) or Jit Sin.

J said...

Wah. Thanks for giving more Klang options - do continue!

My friend in Klang who complains that we never visit her part of the world will be glad for the company. :)
