Steamed Lala

RM16.00 · 2 Reviews

Spot Meng Kee opposite Scott Garden by its bright red signboard sitting out on the road — your reward will be delicious tai chow done right. For a weekday lunch, gather your colleagues for this affordable meal that stars seafood as its mainstay. The great-for-sharing Steamed Fish With Ginger and Soy Sauce (RM28) soothes with sweet, fleshy fish smothered in chopped ginger and a sauce redolent of rice wine. Order also the Steamed Lala (RM16). Cooked in a similar style, the shellfish is delicious in its own juicy, toothsome right. The quality extends to their meat dishes, including the Pork Ribs In Soy Bean Paste (RM16). Slicked in a spicy, saltish sauce, the tender ribs are sure to be gobbled up in a flash. A plate of Stir-Fried Kangkung In Belacan goes for only RM8, so don't skimp on greens here! The one thing this streetside stall lacks is parking space — hop into an Uber or Grab ride instead.
Avg price per person: RM20
