Restoran Wei Sun @ Jalan 9/62A, Bandar Manjalara Kepong


Jenn & I were out of idea on what to eat one Sunday evening, and so we switched on our TV, tuned in to 8TV for Ho Chak at 6.30pm for recommendations. So when they introduced Wei Sun which is located in MAnjalara, we found something to eat!! So we changed our clothes & I used my Garmin to point me the way to this place. 15 minutes later, we arrived at our intended destination.

I dropped Jenn in front of the shop to look for a table first, as parking was quite hard to find at that time. By the time I parked my car and walked in, the crowd has already filled the whole restaurant to the brim. According to the boss, most of them are regulars.

We were seated near the counter where they prepared drinks... and the boss wasted no time to take our order. From my table, I noticed that more people kept coming in but were made to wait for tables.

We ordered on what was introduced during the show, the signature seafood Lam Mee which was prepared using 3 types of chinese wine in order to give the dish some oommppphhhh!!!! Prawns, crab meats, and a few slices of abalone were thrown in... but don't expect generous portion of those seafoods ok? Both of us like the wine flavour that blended oh so perfectly into the broth. And the lam mee's texture was smooth and chewy! We finish the whole bowl of mee and its broth until the last drop...

As the boss said that the lam mee's portion was not enough for 2 pax, we asked for recommendation and she suggested fried lala mee hoon. Not too oily and full of wok hei... but the sizes of the lala were very, I mean... VERY... small (maybe puny is a better word of choice) that they looked like dace bean.

Stir fried veggie - no complains, as both of us prefer greens together with our dishes.

Leo's verdict - the restaurant can get quite cramped once it's packed, and it is recommended that you come here before 7-8pm if you don't like to wait for tables. They also offer dai chow dishes here... which I will come back one day to try.

i can't remember the last time i had lam mee. to be honest, i'm not sure i even remember what it tastes like anymore. but that looks very tempting. will definitely try to have some lam mee soon! :D

Lala Meehoon is always over-rated here in the Klang Valley. I don't like it much - regardless where it's served, becoz they all use those tiny puny lala which u can hardly taste or distinguish from the meehoon!

precious pea - yes! they are still showing ho chak & the 2 new hosts are doing quite a good job too... as usual Sunday evening 6.30pm Astro Channel 708 (8TV)

thenomadGourmand - lol! what to do??? The moment she saw the lam mee, I could see the look in her eyes. U know la... pregnant woman, can't deprive her of anything :)

Sean - judging from the neverending crowd, I reckon that this place is doing quite good for itself. Give it a try ok?

pureglutton - agree with you.. should have ordered other food instead!
