Restaurant Hong Lim @ Subang Jaya

Honestly, I have been really busy lately and there was apparently no time at all for blogging. I love blogging but time wasn't on my side. I also love eating and apparently I have been eating non stop lately while my waistline just keep on increasing and increasing.....

SO much that I really would like to share it with my readers as food is really the best thing when it comes to sharing. My hunger for food brought us to so many places, new or old, doesn't matter as long as the food tasted good.

I really have no idea on where or what to have daily but with wonderful friends who are more than willing to share these places with brought light back. Chinese food was the pick of the day and the name of this restaurant is called 'Restaurant Hong Lim' which is situated in Subang Jaya.

Shark's Fins Soup @ RM9.90
We just couldn't resist the temptation of ordering a couple of personal served type 'Shark's Fins Soup' which was on offer going at RM9.90 per bowl. Eat your heart out cause you will never come across such delicacies at such a knock out price. 

Portion was really huge indeed which could feed 2 adults. We like what we saw when the bowl was brought to us. Not too much starch was used which is good. It tasted a tad too salty which was still acceptable. The texture of the shark's fins and it's soup was just marvelous. Well done and I would have loved to go for another bowl but somehow there was just not enough room for another one.

Of course this was not the greatest I have ever had but it certainly was the most affordable yet delicious bowl I have ever came across. A big pat on the shoulder to the chef.

Loh Mee @ RM18.00
This was what we were here for. Highly recommended by our mate who lives not far from this restaurant. A big bowl of 'Loh Mee' for the 5 of us would do us a great deal. Delicious it was and everyone just wanted more and more. But we had to be careful with our intake as there will be more foodie on it's way to our table.

Loh Mee was good even coming from me who is not a big fan of this type of noodle. I have never fancied Loh Mee but this place really changed my perception towards it. The only set back was it was rather starchy.

Stewed CHicken @ RM25.00
... and this was also what we came for too. LOL. The aroma of this dish simply fills up the room and we could feel that all of us was attracted to it. Simply amazing, really. A tad too salty but overall this dish does taste magic. Goes very well with rice. There was a special name for it but I just couldn't remember it. But no worries just tell them that you wanted to order their signature chicken dish and they know what you are asking for.

Signature Bean Curd @ RM16.00
This too was not to be missed. Oh boy! all the dishes we ordered was just too fabulous and too yummy. This fried bean curd comes with minced fork mixed with some 'choy pou' in it. Such a delight to have this lovely bean curd in our mouth. Our tastebuds just kicked a couple of notch up! Just a tad too oily, though.

Fried French Beans @ RM11.00
A meal will not be complete without a plate of vegetable. This particular plate of fried french beans was just too oily. We wanted something really simple and have it fried it simply with garlic. And surprisingly it was a bomb. Simple and nice that is. Fried to perfection whereby the beans was not too soggy nor too cooked. It was crispy and it was a delight to chew these french guys. LOL.

Conclusion : Food was great! Price was just so-so. Chicken dish was overpriced. Promotional price on the shark's fins was a dream. Bean curd was magically delicious and the Loh Mee was like the expression of kiddos being given a McDonald meal. Pure delight ! Lovely ! This place deserved a 4/5.

FYI, they serve pretty good dim-sum for breakfast and it can be pretty packed with morning crowd. Worth venturing too if you wanted something more light compared to what we had.
