“fishy” business making big bucks – second branch already!
Good news for PJ folks! No need to travel that extra miles to Rawang for that utterly delicious steamed tilapia fish anymore because the very exclusive Lan Jie Steamed Fish can now be found at Kota Damansara!
ears burning, sweat forming spicy version that motormouth recommended
Almost everyone in the restaurant was having a whole fish to themselves, hence we follow suit (RM 14 – RM 18, varies according to size). There is only one style of cooking for the tilapia fishes, but one can choose from the level of spiciness – non spicy, mild, spicy and ears burning, sweat forming spicy which is basically no chili padi, very little chili padi, plenty of chili padi and a very generous sprinkling of cili padi. That’s the difference!
Topped with dashes of soy sauce, chili bean paste sauce, diced garlic, shredded ginger, chili padi, it encompass all the intense natural flavor of the tilapia fish. We also like the fact that the fishes were steamed just right, resulting in a sweetish, smooth and velvety flesh. As much as we enjoyed our steamed fish immensely, we were sweating buckets for being over ambitious by asking for the very spicy version.
The tofu dish was just passable.
Right after Kota Damansara’s KFC drive through and Mcdonalds drive through, you will notice rows of new shop lots on your left. Turn in and look for Gulam Mee (corner lot with bright neon sign board). Lan Je is just behind Gulam Mee. Tips from boolicious (thanks girl!): remember to make a reservation beforehand as the fishes may run out in a jiffy!
