Restoran Lan Je Steamed Fish @ Kota Damansara

I once said wanted to post some of my precious moment during my KL trip last year (can you imagine, it's another new year but I still procrastinating all my last year posts, kill me please!), and so here's the first dinner I had in KL. Really, another time to intro you guys the apps - Waze, you need it when you are in the middle of the lost city! Thanks to it, we were safe in the big big city and we might be lost for little while, yet we still found every destination we wanted to go. Back to the post now.
Why go restaurants that soon will mushrooming in my lovely Penang, that's why we hunted for those KL food that couldn't find at other places. Our first and yummy stop is at Restoran Lan Je which famous with their steamed fish (yeah, not stim fish aka me!).
We were the first customer that day, we reached when the shop just about to open, and maybe the drizzling rain was one of the cause that stop people from stepping outside their home sweet home. Parking is not a problem here, there is huge parking lot in front of the shop lots; finding a table for yourself can be a bigger problem here, so it's better if you can call for reservation before you go there.
People there were busy chopping lots of chili padi, for the steamed fish used; upon order, they will ask you what spiciness level do you want - non spicy, mild, spicy and ears burning; these are defined on how many chili padi they sprinkle on the fishes.
Coconut Juice . RM4.50
Normally if I dine at seafood restaurant, I always prefer to have coconut juice, to reduce the heatiness I'll have due to the food. I had quite a number of coconut drinks during my KL trip, feel lucky that I didn't get sick even-tho I didn't had much water, daily.
Steamed Fish . RM14-RM18 (varies according to size)
Almost everyone that go for the Restoran Lan Je was having a whole fish to themselves, hence we follow the suit, each of us order one whole fish; the size of the fishes are not small if you want to know. There is only one type of fish, that is tilapia fish and one style of cooking the fish; so if you want to have stronger taste, order the spicy one. Laugh. The tilapia fish is topped with dashes of soy sauce, chili bean paste sauce, diced garlic, shredded ginger (my first time eating so much of ginger) and some veges. I like the fish as they steamed it just right, and my parents will be very happy if they see how I clean/eat every meat that I can find from the fish.
Fried Sambal Kangkong . RM7
For our health balance, we should have more dishes to share, that's why despite of the fishes, we also ordered some other dishes like this one. Boys really don't like to have veggies huh? That's why if you out with boys, I think fried sambal kangkong will be a good choice for all, a common dish in Malaysia.
Egg with Prawn . RM6
The last dish of the day, just normal homecook, to set of how delicious is the tilapia steamed fish they served. In KL, it's important to know how to find delicious food with cheaper price (like this Restoran Lan Je), not all food is expensive like what I had previously. LOL
