Restoran LYJ, Sungai Buloh

This is a post i should've done much much earlier.... So delayed this is that since my first visit, i've actually been to this place no less than 4 to 5 times, of which i've bumped into famous people like Ah Xian and Datuk Lee Chong Wei.

This place is at the Sungai Buloh new village which is just a turn away from Sri Damansara. Food is pretty good and here are some dishes we tried the first time we were there.

1) The complimentary peanuts... or are they? I believe a minimal charge is imposed, probably a few ringgit, but these are quite different from the ones we get in KL. It has an extra touch and salt and sugar. Pretty interesting.
2) Fried Fish, "Cheong Ching" style; pretty salty despite my higher tolerance for salty food, but otherwise, it's crispy and goes well with rice.
3) Fried Tofu with Black Beans; something different which i've never tried in KL before, tastes rather well as the aroma from the black beans complimented the tofu well.
4) Paku veg; the one done here is topped with fried and fresh shallots and a dash of lime juice. My favourite dish by far..... until the next one was served....
5) Stir fried pork belly in thick soy sauce and peanuts! The name says it all. The aroma, captivating, the pork was unbeatable and the peanuts were chewy. Words can't describe how good this dish tastes.
This palce is apparently famous for its "Pun Choi" which of course requires pre-booking by at least 24 hours. The total bill for what we had was RM106.00. If you're keen, do try its steamed rice glazed with lard... gosh! It's DELICIOUS, for pork and lard fans like me.
My tummy's verdict: 7.8/10.
