Kedai Makanan Wan Fatt

This rather obscure restaurant is located in Kajang town but is mostly frequented by locals, due to it's hard-to-find location. It's actually situated on the back lane of Jalan Mendaling on the riverbank of Sg Langat.

This is another restaurant which has seen business boom after a spotlight on the Ho Chiak TV programme. The cook is quite inventive, creating new or modified versions of classic Cantonese dishes.

It's one of our top 10 places to eat in Kajang. Here are some of the dishes we have tried on previous visits:-

1. Steamed tilapia fish topped with fried preserved radish (their Signature dish)

This is the dish that propelled them to fame on Ho Chiak. Tilapia fish steamed to perfection and served with a light soy sauce. The secret to their version is the deep fried preserved radish topping the fish. It adds a crunchy texture to the dish, not to mention the added taste dimension of the preserved radish.
Rating : Excellent - must try !



2. Three Taste Pork Ribs ( Kam Heong pork ribs)

You'll find kam heong crabs and prawns at many establishments but few have meat dishes in this style.
Rating : Very good






3. Kailan prepared in 2 styles

On a single dish you will get 2 styles of kailan. First, cut into thin strips and deep fried, the kailan actually looks and tastes like dried seaweed. Strips of crab stick are added for more crunch and flavour. The second style is the typical stir-fry with garlic which is well executed.
Rating : Very good



4. Home-made taufoo with sotong

Soft home-made taufoo topped with squid (sotong). It has enough vegetables in it to qualify as a vegetable dish too.
Rating : Good





5. Cantonese style fried noodles with prawn (Sang har meen)

This is one of the few places in Kajang where you will find this dish served, and they do it quite well here. The prawns are medium large and served with deep fried yee mee in a Cantonese style egg gravy. Stir the dish and leave it for a while to let the gravy and prawn juices infuse the noodles. A great choice for a single-dish meal.
Rating : Very good


6. Deep fried pork ribs

Tasty and well executed.
Rating : Good

  3. Yesterday, I waited for 45 minutes for food at this shop. It can get really really crowded on Sunday.

  4. Saturday and Sundays are bad days if you are not prepared to wait. Rest of the week is just nice. I know the wait game and sometimes, it can get to you. Somehow, this place is worth the wait, IMHO.
