Hunt for nasi lemak ends with a fried chicken surprise
SOMETIMES, things don’t turn out the way you plan it but that’s just ‘Murphy’s Law’.
My trusty wife Michelle and I had set out to give Lim Fried Chicken (LFC) a try.
Alas, our luck was out as when we arrived at Wong Soon Kee coffeeshop in SS14, Subang Jaya, we discovered the stall was closed. Word has it that this is the best Chinese nasi lemak stall in Subang Jaya and there are some hardcore makan kakis who vouch for it.
One of them is Uncle K.W. Mui who gave this place a very high rating, which is way off the Mui-scale.
“Eh Sam ah! You must try Lim Fried Chicken la.
“This place is really good and the weekend crowd who makan their ayam goreng can fill the coffeeshop.”
For the uninitiated, Lim Fried Chicken is a little stall managed by a woman who is also well-known for her pork curry.
Apart from her nasi lemak, there are some really good food here like Fei Lou Shum’s wantan mee and a char koay teow seller who dishes out a storm.
Since the stall was closed, we decided to try something else and noticed a chap-fan (mixed rice) seller who was open. The first thing I noticed was that customers seemed to make a beeline for his fried chicken.
“Could this be a relative of Lim Fried Chicken?” I thought out loud.
Not wanting to miss the opportunity, I ordered a plate of rice with a piece of fried chicken thigh and some curried potatoes.
This cost me RM6.50 per plate and Michelle said it tasted pretty decent.
“Ah, I love deep-fried chicken skin… This is just perfect!,” she said.
The combination of curry, potatoes and the fried chicken went down very well.
This chap fan stall and their awesome meal made up for the Chinese nasi lemak stall that was closed.
We spent a good deal of time at the stall before moving on to another makan place.
Wong Soon Kee (N 03 04.363, E 101 35.356) opens for breakfast and lunch daily and we hope to do another follow-up visit to the Chinese nasi lemak stall soon.
