Lan Je, Kota Damansara

Finally, I got to try the famous steamed fish that I read in masak-masak's blog recently :)
Since weekdays are usualy very packed, we went on a weekend instead. Still pretty crowded but the wait for food were not that long..
I've been there twice, and had tried the 3 flavours available..
Steamed black tilapia with bean paste sauce..
Steamed black tilapia with bean paste and chilli (spicy) - larger tilapia, serve size for 2
And lastly, steamed black tilapia with bean paste and extra chilli (extra spicy)
So which flavour was my favourite?
In that 2 visits, I like the spiciest version the best; the plentiful bird eye's chilli added some kick to the fish, also added aroma to the base sauce (ie, the liquid base). When I had all 3 fish together, the norm bean paste paled in comparison to it's hotter counterparts. The fish served here are fresh, hence you dont need to worry about the muddy taste that tilipia has. Almost undetected :)
I've tried 2 sizes of the fish, the fish serve for 1 person was smoother in texture, but not as sweet and flavourful compared to the flesh of the larger fish (serve size for 2 person). Oh, they did over steamed one of the fish that I had though. Wasted :(
Definitely one of the place I'll pop by often for my meals, since it's also rather near my house :). Price of fish depends on it's weight, but small size fish for one person costs about RM16-17.

Lan Je Steamed Fish is located at F-50G & 51G, Jalan Teknologi 3/9, Bistari "DE" Kota, Kota Damansara, PJU 5, Petaling Jaya.

it's slightly cheaper at the Rawang branch, about RM13 each, but given the horrid traffic jams, and the far-fetched location, i'll take this one anyday.

Seems like most good food are in your vicinity or a few mins from your home. So, any more units for sale there?
