Restoran R Cheng Fei Zhou Yu Wantan Mee @ Rawang, Selangor

This entry is about a unique home restaurant that is located in Kampung Dato Lee Kim Sai, Rawang which specialises in one particular dish, Steamed Fish Wan Tan Mee. Yes, you heard me right. What is commonly consumed as two dishes, have been made into one. They have been around since the year 2009 but only last night, I came to know about this place. Besides being one that is famous among the locals, the place seems to be also well known among Singaporeans. In fact when we were here this afternoon, 70% of the guests were Singaporeans who dropped by on their way to Genting Highlands. Surprised to see that even Singaporeans know about this place and me, right up to last night, I had no knowledge whatsoever. I guess I have got to learn more about my neighbourhood towns now. 

A Home Restaurant Concept

Signages Are Clear

Can't Miss The Place

Not Many Tables But Peak Hours The Wait Is Long

Number Of Newspaper Write Ups
The place isn't difficult to find. Assuming you are coming from north, you would have to head into Rawang New Town and then connect back to the old trunk road. At this point, please keep right and you would see a sign indicating Kampung Dato Lee Kim Sai to be on the right. Once you turn in at the traffic lights, you'd be greeted by numerous banners hanging on the light poles directing you to this restaurant. Though the place is like a maize, it isn't a problem getting there, In fact, our problem was later, getting out of that place. But after going round in circles, we managed to come back to the main trunk road. There is one small parking space opposite the restaurant which is part of another house. I believe that it belongs to the same family as well. In case that's taken up, just find a spot by the side of the road. It is a house actually, not a full fledged restaurant with the front courtyard being set up with tables and cooking is done on the side. In fact, before I left Tanjung Malim, I had given the lady boss a call to check on the directions and she was kind enough to tell me that in case I am not able to find the place, give her a call and she would send someone out to the main road to guide us here. That was so kind of her. We were there during peak hours and all the tables were occupied. As mentioned earlier, the majority of them were Singaporeans but the wait was not too long. In about 15 minutes, we managed to get a table.

Their Menu

Ho Chak Did A Huge Coverage on Them
The signature dish here is their Steamed Fish Wantan Mee and that comes in six varieties (different sauces). It is meant to be a single dish per person but in case you would be ordering a number of dishes, then surely it's advisable to share as everyone would then get an opportunity to taste more than one dish. Besides these, they have some pork dishes along with some vegetables. Do note that not everything displayed on their menu is available daily. The fish yes, but the rest are selectively available. In fact, their stuffed Tofu's are one of the famous dishes here and when I requested for that, sadly it was not available for the day. Prices are not displayed on the menu but they are very reasonable indeed. 

Chrysanthemum Tea @ RM 2.00
This Chrysanthemum Tea along with their Herbal Tea are two famous in house drinks. One could also opt to add grass jelly as well. This plain one was priced at RM 2.00 per glass and it was good. I would rate this at 9/10 . Besides this drink, we also had some Chinese Tea and that was priced at RM 0.50 per glass and a can of Coca Cola was priced at RM 2.20 each. Pretty much standard market prices.

Steamed Bean curd with Soy Sauce @ RM 6.00
Another one that is famous here and they make their own Bean Curds. This Steamed Bean Curd dish is topped with some small anchovies and soy sauce. Freshness guaranteed and I was very impressed with that. Taste was good, however if they were a little more generous with the soy sauce, it would have been better. For me, I would rate this at 7/10 .

Pork Ribs and Yam in a Dark Broth @ RM 20.00

Pork Ribs and Yam in a Dark Broth @ RM 20.00
This Pork Ribs dish was cooked with yam and a soy based dark broth and served in claypots. The good thing is that they were quite generous with the amount of yam added and the rib cuts were quite meaty as well. The broth was spicy ( as they have added some Bird Eye Chilies), mildly sweet and mildly salty. What can I say, I remember eating this in Sungai Buloh quite some time back and was in love with the dish then. Was looking for it all over but none prepared it in this manner and I was extremely delighted when they had it here. Taste wise, it was just heavenly and even better than the one that I had in Sungai Buloh. I was in love with this dish and perhaps finished the most. Based on my taste buds, I would rate this at 9.5/10 . A highly recommended dish!!!

Steamed Fish Wantan Mee (Cheong Cheng Style) @ RM 13.00

Mix It All Up And It's Good To Go

And That's How You Have It
Finally getting to try their Steamed Fish Wantan Mee. This one was their Cheong Cheng style. All their Steamed Fish sets are priced at RM 13.00 . It comes with a medium sized Black Tilapia and  a standard serving of Wantan Noodles. The fish is kept to one side and the noodles on the other side and they are steamed together along with the desired sauce. All one has got to do is to mix the noodles with the sauce, a piece of the fish and you're all set. Oh Boy!!! It was so good!!! Black Tilapia is one that is not easy to cook, especially when it comes to removing the stench from it and these guys have done a fabulous job with that. The fish has been sliced in to halves thus enabling the sauce to seep in. Even the sauce was so delicious. After our meal, I kept scooping up more and more of the leftover sauce since I loved it so much. A unique dish and it tastes so good. I would rate this at 9.5/10 . A highly recommended dish here.

Steamed Fish Wantan Mee in Dark Soy Sauce @ RM 13.00

Another Excellent Dish

The Wantan Noodles Were So Tasty
This variety is their Steamed Fish Wantan Mee in Dark Soy Sauce. In case you are wondering, yes they also have another version with light soy sauce. Again similar concept as the earlier one and this too was just fantastic. In case I  had not mentioned earlier, they make their own egg noodles (Wantan Noodles) as well. Another dish that I would rate at 9.5/10 . Once again, highly recommended!!!

Business Hours

Our Bill For The Day
In summary, the Steamed Bean Curd was good and their Steamed Fish Wantan Mee and the Pork Ribs were fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal this afternoon and glad that I finally got to know about this place. There seems to be other famous eateries inside this village as well and would try to visit those too soon. Definitely a must try place for Chinese food lovers!!!
