Leong Ya Restaurant

24 10 2008


There are 3 Leong Ya Restaurants in the vicinity, all operated by the same family. One on the first row with air-conditioning, and the other two have bigger space sans the comfort of air-cond. They are at the corner in the second row and at the far end. Why so many eh? Doesn’t matter, as long as they serve their signature yummy ji pao gai ^oo^

yong tau foo

Their yong tau foo is pretty good too. They come drenched in a sweet thickly sauce. We ordered a mix and each reasonably sized piece is RM1.

paper wrapped chicken

Hi, who’s in there?

paper wrapped chicken

Paper wrapped chicken! Oh oh.. yummyliciousness unfolds! Despite the glue-ey mess I captured in picture here, the gravy is excellent in flavour and makes me drool when the aroma hits the nose. It has a hint of chinese rice wine and tastes slightly of ginger. The chicken is slowly cooked in the package, absorbing all the flavour and keeping the meat tender. Well worth the price of RM 2.60 per parcel.

mix veg

Mix stir fried vegetables. Again they use chinese rice wine which works wonder with this kind of dish.

3 treasures egg

Three-treasured steamed egg. I’m not sure what it’s called, I’m simply naming it :P. It’s a super smooth steamed egg with salted duck egg and century-egg mixed in. Very delicious but the soy sauce is too salty.
