Ah Lit @ Seri Kembangan

    Another hidden gem in Seri Kembangan, Ah Lit Home Cooked Dishes was being featured in ChinaPress just recently. Joe from Lots of Cravings managed to get his way there last weekend so how can we missed out this place before graduation?

    This place is famous for the mackarel fish (???) and steamed chicken. Both were sold off by the time we get there. For the fish dish, the flesh is scrap off from the bone and minced repeatedly before some seasoning is added. The glue-ify fish paste is then attached to the head and tail to be deep fried. It is similar to something that we tried at the famous beggar chicken place in Banting.

    Patrons were rushing in after reading the newspaper review? The place was packed even on a Tuesday night.

    Garlic Snail (???) RM 20- Thanks to Joe’s recommendation, this is excellent. I love the creamy sauce with the strong hint of garlic and curry leaves. Eventhough the sauce is so strong that it mask the natural sweetness of the snail, the firm and slightly chewy texture remains.

    Sweet Sour Pork in Yam Basket (?????) RM20 – My favourite dish! The pork strips are crispy and the batter is not too flourly. Not much seasoning on the yam basket but it tastes good after absorbing the flavour of the sweet sour sauce.

    Stir Fry Lettuce (????) RM 10
    Specialty Tofu (????) RM 15-It tastes like the crossover of fishball and tofu. The texture is not as soft as tofu and as springy as fish ball. This is a bit plain for me because I prefer those fancy type of tofu with salted fish or dried squid added.

    Stir Fry Brussel Sprouts (????) RM10

    Herbal Chicken (???) RM 18- The chicken is a tad too dry and the herbal soup is too mild. The portion is quite small for 14 pax too.

    Curry Fish Head (????) – Big RM 28, Medium RM 22, Small RM 18. It is presented in a claypot to maintain the warmth of the dish, the fish head is wonderfully simmering in the slightly spicy curry.It gives you a tangy taste amid the mix of long beans, brinjal, lady’s finger with Tau Pok to add to the zest of this dish.


    The makan clan, it is good to have dinner with them because we can try a little bit of everything. The food is very reasonable with total bill comes about rm 10 for each person. The food is good but not as fantastic as portraited by the newspaper review. Will definitely come back again for their signature fish and chicken dish. It is advisable to make a reservation during weekends.
