Restaurant Loong Foong, Tmn Mayang

Jem left for HK yesterday to start his new working life there.. wonder how many years he'll be in HK. Or would it be for good? Irregardless of your choice, wish you all the best and have a great time there mate!
So, before he left, a group of us wanted to buy him farewell dinner. He wanted steamboat in PJ, and A.lee suggested Loong Foong (not to be mistaken with the yummy roasted duck shop at Tmn Paramount, also named Loong Foong) at Taman Mayang area. We ordered mixed steamboat (of tomyam and clear soup base) and some extra dishes.
As it was near CNY then, we had yee sang first..
Nothing to shout about, the yee sang was just average.. Next, we had stir fried noodles wrapped in eggs. A.lee did the ordering and I did not noticed what he ordered, so when this dish was served, I thought he ordered nasi pattaya..After we broke the egg 'parcel', the wonderful aroma enamates from the piping hot noodles. Alas, the noodles tastes rather bland and not very exciting at all :(
While the waiters started heating the steamboat, pouring in the soup and bringing out the raw ingredients, the marmite pork ribs was served..This was pretty good (sorry for the sad looking photo), the meat was tender, while the exterior had a nice coat of sticky marmite and a sprinkling of bird's eye chilli which added an extra punch to the else plain marmite ribs.
Finally, the soup was boiling and we dunk a whole load of raw ingredients into the soup.And we wait..
I was actually quite disappointed with the steamboat as I had higher expectations. I was told by a friend that Loong Foong was one of the pioneer of yin-yang steam boat, hence I thot I would get some wonderful, rich broth, delectable steamboat. But nah, the clear soup was way too clear for my liking.. was like boiled water :(. Tomyum soup was so-so. Ingredients were ok, I dont find anything unique about it either.
What Julianne thinks?
Average and forgettable
Restaurant Loong Foong is located at Taman Mayang. Faces the LDP (some 1.5km frm Kelana Jaya LRT), just next to the St Ignatius Church. Corner shop. The same turning you take to go to Kg Chempaka.

We sometimes go to Loong Foong too but more for their cooked dishes.
