Restaurant LYJ Roasted Chicken
Up Right Roasted Chicken

On my food quest at Kepong, it had lead me to cross over to the neighbouring area here at Sungai Buluh. This time I visited Restaurant LYJ.

It kept me staring at it. My pair of eye got frozen. A beautiful bird, graceful placed on the serving plate up right. It had such a great golden tanned, yes it was perfectly roasted with a crisp skin. Yes it was tuly a unique way of presentinmg, what more we ate in a different way. A pair of scissor was put into play to carve the chicken. Yet, Master Chef Paul Lee kept had more surprise juices flowing out. It was a lemon roasted chicken and it was really delicious. “It must an Italian influence roasting”, I told myself. It was such a display dish. We had one roasting but our next door table had two and I know why! yes it was really spectecularly delicious. A definitely must have. Something simple yet unique.

Then came the huge fresh water prawns coated with Chinese BBQ sauce. The sauce was just perfectly crafted to accompany the prawns. It was elegant done, tasted delicious. (Got to remind that this huge fresh water prawns are not cheap, three whole of them caot about slight.y more than RM100.)

Restaurant LYJ Pork Belly with braised peanut

Lovely sliced pork belly had me craving for more. Thinly slice pork belly softly glazed with dark sweet sauce topped over soft braised peanuts. It was truly an appealing dish by itself. Very flavoursome and the ligght sweetness did perfectly to compliment my bowl of white rice. A very Chinese homecooking dish with plenty of Chinese heritage infused. Lovely.

Restaurant LYJ Stir fried Beancurd Roasted Pork and Spring Onion

Yet another homecooked dish came to play. Simple and yet plenty of values. Chunks of beancurd with loads of protein were given a golden deep fried and lightly otasted in the wok with thinly slice Chinese Spring Onion and some roasted pork to falvoured the dish. It was simple and deligtful to indulge. A great pairing with white rice.

Claypot Spinach1
Claypot Spinach with Poached Egg Yolk

We ordered our vegetable dishes differently from the normal stir fried or even poaching topped with oyster sauce. Here we wanted Chef Paul Lee’s famous Claypot Spinach. It was cooked in a claypot with boiling thick soup topped with a raw egg. It was really tasty, marvellous and creative. I like it.

Dining here before leave, Chilled Paku Salad with Lemon Juice is defietely a must order dish. Having to bite into the crunchiness of the paku was such a blessing as it had really thrilled me on the spot. It was a tasty cold dish laced with lemon juice and also crunchy dried shrimps. Yes it was truly marvellous. If you want to try this paku salad make sure you be early. yet another creative and a must order dish.
