Fook Loy Restaurant again

Our inaugural blog entry was about this restaurant, so its about time we did an update review of the food here. On a recent visit, we decided to try some new dishes we'd seen on some other blogs about this restaurant.

Tilapia in a claypot
Actually, I wanted a dish I had seen in another blog described as “suan yee”. Something was lost in the translation and what we ended up with was a fried tilapia in a claypot topped with a Cantonese style mixed vegetable eggy gravy. Despite the mix-up, the dish turned out pretty good. Actually, I would recommend it– with lots of vegetables and a whole fish, it would make an excellent 1 dish meal.
Verdict : Good

Dried oyster in fish paste

This was another dish from the same blog. It was my first time having this and it did have a pretty fishy smell. But taste wise, it gets my thumbs up.
Verdict : Good

Taufoo with small prawns
Another dish that was not what we intended. Gd wanted plain steamed taufoo topped with dried shrimp. Again lost in the translation and we ended up with braised taufoo with small fresh prawns. The prawn gravy was pretty bland.
Verdict : OK

Butter prawns in yam ring 
Yet another dish that was lost in the translation (it was one of those days !!!). What was supposed to be mantis prawn done kung po style in a yam basket, turned out as butter prawns in a yam basket. The medium sized prawns were fried till crisp and the yam ring was also suitably well fried. This dish was polished off in seconds - so much so that I only got to try 1 prawn :-(  .That says a lot about the taste though.
Verdict : Very good

Pucuk paku (fern shoots) fried in belacan
This was done nicely and tasty enough.
Verdict : Good
Loh hon chai
This stir fried mixed vegetable dish was done nicely too with 3 types of mushrooms, bean curd sheets, baby corn, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and kailan. Recommended for vegetarians.
Verdict : Very good

Despite 3 out 6 dishes being mixed up, I still give this place the thumbs up. Food is consistently good and prices are pretty reasonable. Dinner for 7 of us with all the above came to RM138. It would be a good idea to repeat your orders though.

  2. No I don't, but to guide you there:
    If you are driving from Kajang town towards Sg. Chua, keep on the main road heading towards North-South Highway/Country Heights. About 2 km from the town, you will reach an big intersection with the SILK highway, this is on top of a small hill. Highway in front of you, go underneath the highway and Fook Loy is just to the left after SILK highway. You can't miss it, it is on a small hill.

    BTW. This is also the entrance road to the famous Jade Hill. SILK Bkt. Angkat EXIT 1812. It's right there!
