Lan Je In Rawang

I know I might sound "cheapskate" a bit but I think road side stalls suit me better. Some stalls serve their own specialities and as for this Kedai Makanan Lan Je, it is famous for their talapia fish. According to my rawang fren, this owner has his own fish farm and he does his own special recipe on the talapia fish.

Nothing fishy going on...

so No Fishy Smell....
its texture is very fresh
just nicely cooked
and the sauce...is.... how to say...
u can actually drink it...(really one..)

this "sotong" is also their speciality
the sauce is very "tap pik"
(very appetising)

chicken balls
something different too...

crispy fresh "yau mak"

we ordered 3 plates of steamed fish...
one surely not enough..

1, 2, 3 fishes for 5 persons...

few minutes later...
only bones were left.. lol...

the crowd...
sometimes u need to stand around first
before u can get a table...
Price : RM80 for 5 pax
Kedai Makanan Lan Je
Rawang Main Road (the road leading to Batang Kali)


  1. haha.. after Ah Yat, still Lan Je is better rite.. same here.. I prefer to makan tepi jalan than in big hotels or restaurants..

    But 3 fish for 5 ppl.. you all are cats ah?

  2. not cheapskate. it's called good taste!
    i love fish but scared of the bones. :(

  3. cynthia, that place is famous for its fish ma..so have to order more otherwise will end up "fighting" for fish...

    chubs..sorry, these few days will be on food and more food...

    Misti, after that expensive night, we went broke..so better go for cheaper food..hahaa...

  4. o.O luckily when i came here, i just finish eat. Ahahahaha.... this time my stomach din grumble oooo.... :-P

    ps: The fish looks very nice, one of these days, must hunt you down to belanja me! :-P

  5. sure Cleffairy... no problem..just send me a message over here... :)

  6. Road side stall is the best sometimes..cheap and delishhh....! ^_^

  7. Yummy, yummy! I love the pics of the dishes n the bones. Now u c it, now u don't. LOL

  8. wow nice food!
    yummy yummy! haha.. =D
    making me feel hungry in the middle of the night.. lol

  9. last time I was there, I saw that everyone ordered 1 fish 1 person!

    But I guess given you ordered other dishes! :)

  10. yes, it should be one person 1 fish.. but that day, the lady told us the fish was quite big so we ordered 3 instead of 5 and then added in that few other dishes too.. just nice...oh, i didnt write the bill hor,. it came to slightly over RM80

  11. Waaa...everything was eaten good...LOL...yummy...i promise myself i won't visit your blog if I did not eat yet. I did not! I have to take a break and eat first.Im drooling. I came to your three blogs. Left comments too...hehehe. Did you buy domain already?

  12. my family likes these kinda food too cos my uncles & cousins are all into fishing and Rawang is like their 2nd home cos alot of fishing ponds there.

  13. i like! These are better than those in Ah Yat and fill stomach...

  14. thanks Amy for dropping by... i will not forget to drop by yours too..

    yes, rawang i think is famous for the fresh water pond fish.. u can get them fresher there.. Jas, definitely after the ah yat, this lan je is much more refreshing.. hahaa...

  15. give you one suggestion, everytime you go makan at stalls, tell the owners that you are a famous blogger and you wnat to put up their pictures in your blog, and thousands of ppl will go and patronize them and ask them for handsome discount on your foods,,

    good idea?

    take care my friend

  16. wah.....so many fishes
    but with different cooking style..should be ok. i like fish. healthy.

  17. dare not la..eugene..as u said, so many bloggers around..me small fry.. they dont need our publicity unless i m the from HO Chiak channel one...or the ah zian... tv8ntv7... that is different story.. hahaa..

    yes, littlelamb, fish is brain food, so they say..

DESSERTS OVER... THE MAIN MEAL CAME... It should be the other way round but knowing us, desserts would go to waste after this main meal.  So...
