Restaurant Leong Ya Indah 梁雅(女), Balakong

This restaurant have been around for a least two decades I think. If not mistaken , it was around before Mines Wonderland was even built. Before that it was just a small shop where Mines Shopping is nowadays. Then they moved to Taman Sg Besi Indah and opened three outlets.

It has been ages since we came to this restaurant. The last round we came was 2010, I think with my Uncles or was there another round with Isaac and family while chasing the Big Bad Wolf Fire Sale at South City Plaza? Even that it would have been back in 2011 or 2010.

 Anyway, we went there again last week on Monday with Uncle Arthur and family.

 
 Parking was rather hard to find. Hence we went into the restaurant first while waiting for Papa to find a parking space.

Ordered some Yong Tau Foo. Too bad doesn't have Bittergourd.


 "Paper wrapped Chicken" ...certainly different from Sibu paper wrapped chicken

 The unwrapping ceremony . *LOL*

 Makan time!

 
Nice or not the "dome" I made?

 "Four Heavenly King"....so long never had it with petai....many restaurant don't put petai in this dish anymore.


 Seeing Mamarazzi and Uncle Arthur snapping photos, I also wanna snap la. 

Complimentary soup of the day. Lotus root soup. For Mamarazzi this is a new way of cooking Lotus root soup leh. They added peppercorn into the soup. Kinda weird in the beginning as Mamarazzi was accustomed to sweet Lotus root soup instead of a tad spicy but it grows on you. I asked for more soup.

How good is the YTF? Well....not bad la. The fried stuffs was crispy. But I suspect Mamarazzi likes another shop better.

For me, I don't care. I makan aje. I like the soup.

Here is the address if you wanna try out the YTF.

 No 26-28, Jalan Dagang SB 4/1,
Taman Sg Besi Indah SK 4,
Balakong,

    2. Four Heavenly King is my all time favourite but even this simple dish needs a good chef to fry them well and fragrant.

    3. They hardly put petai these days by giving excuses that no stock. I think that is rubbish la. I saw them selling petai in any hypermarket always.

      Delete
    4. Yalah, can always buy petai at Giant or Tesco. Even at Village Grocer (which kinda caters to expats) also got sell petai. :P

      Delete
    5. along the way to cameron highlands, the orang asli selling huge load of petai at RM50, i think average RM1 for one whole strip of petai..

    1. i remember this shop, been there like 20 years ago lah probably when mines wonderland just opened.. errr, that time the restaurant was crowded leh.. but then i heard very complicated story behind the restaurant lah..

      Delete
    2. dunno what sisters or brothers quarreled and split the business then open two shops at the same place and compete with each other, and some say this one is better and some say the other end is better..

      Delete
    3. have not been there for a long time lah, but their YTF came with the gravy meh?? i thot the gravy is given separately since not everyone likes that.. i prefer to have it separate and dip as i like lor..

      Delete
    4. petai is very expensive lah, of course seldom see people use that in the "four heavenly kings" lah, cut cost mah, and also not many people like petai.. your "four heavenly kings" i only like the brinjal and long beans..

      Delete
    5. Yeah heard the story too. I remember last time before mines , this place woild be full packed.

      When customers belanja makan, my boss would bring them there to makan.

      Ya hor...now that you mentioned it...long time ago they didn't put the gravy onto the YTF. Now they do. Wonder us it the same fir the other two outlets. The other two no aircond so we didnt go
