My mother suggested we eat here on Mother's Day as we ran late and can't afford to travel so far to eat Hokkien and Hock Chew food. She mentioned the name Lung Kee but the English signage stated Thong Lung Sang Seafood Restaurant. This restaurant started off as a dai chow near FRIM and shifted to current location sometime back. Business must have been really good when they now occupied 2 shoplots and they have loads of table on the 5 foot way and also at the empty space beside the shops.
The 5 of us have to sit outside since the air-cond section were for pre-booked tables. Luckily it wasn't a hot day that evening. We let mother to dictate the dishes and she came out with this 2 Styles Pork Ribs (RM32). One style have deep fried ribs coated with creamy mayo and the other is sweet sourish. Both are equally nice.
We also have a 2 Styles Homemade Tofu (RM22) which is their signature dish. The middle portion have a thick slab of smooth homemade eggy tofu, deep fried and topped with a mince meat sauce. The pieces of tofu surrounding this are battered and deep fried mashed tofu, I gathered have pieces of fish paste mixed inside. This dish was BoiBoi's fave.
We picked a Stir-Fried Sweet Potato Shoots in Sambal Belachan and it was delivered full of wok-hei (breath of a wok). Good stuff here!
Lastly a firm favourite, Cheung Tzing Fei Chau (Steamed Tilapia in Bean Sauce, RM22). The sauce here is made extra fragrant with the usage of deep fried lard pieces! Do I need to elaborate further?!
My mother said they specialised in lala dishes here but it's too bad they were all sold out. Next time, perhaps. All in I paid RM94.10 for all the dishes with 3 bowls of rice and a pot of King Tea (Char Wong). Seems reasonable to me and now I understand why the place is jam packed.
