Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently get to sample some YanBian cuisine at Lai Lai Wang Wang Restaurant that is located in the busy neighbourhood of Kuchai Lama, Kuala Lumpur. Yanbian is an autonomous prefecture in north-eastern Jilin Province, China due to the large number of ethnic Koreans living in the region.
Dig into a range of YanBian north-eastern specialities including The River Fish Soup, Pot Belly, Sauce Pork Spine, Deep Fried Hairtail, Cola Chicken Wings, Ribs Braised In Soy Sauce, Spiced Beef, Prairie Little Lamb, Burning Chicken Claw, and many more at Lai Lai Wang Wang Restaurant, each dish is bound to cultivate delights with authentic taste in every bite.
Satisfying and excite all your senses with its spicy chilli oil sauce, this Burning Squid (RM38) with chewy and crunchy textures promises a mouth-watering experience unlike any other.
I was impressed with this Double Cooked Pork Slices (RM36), probably the best dish I enjoyed among the all. Outside the delicious tender meat was a crunchy layer coated with chef’s special sauce, suitable for the kids, and even those who can’t really take spicy foods.
I like the unique presentation of this Cascade Potatoes (RM18), a non-spicy dish with crunchy texture and sweet sourish taste, one of the must-order dishes at Lai Lai Wang Wang Restaurant.
This crispy, hot and numbing Geleshan Peppery Chicken (RM36) may looks appetizing but be alert and do not bite at the SzeChuan peppercorn. In Chinese, people call this dish La-Zhi-Ji, mainly because of the amount of dried chilli pepper chef used to cook this dish.
It was my first experience eating the Spicy Duck Tongues (RM42), with soft and meaty texture accompanied by aromatic smell and taste from the spices and dried chilli. The dish was a bit weird to me but still acceptable, how about you?
Have you tasted frog meat before? To me, this Mouth-watering Frogs (RM58) is similar like chicken meat but smoother and softer in texture, the frog legs are rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, and potassium too.
A very gelatinous dish, this sizzling Fried Chicken Feet (RM38) was served on a hot iron plate in thick spicy gravy. I like the fact that chef debone it for diner’s convenience to enjoy this dish.
Chicken with Chilli Sauce (RM22), also known as Saliva Chicken, is one of the most famous SzeChuan style dishes. The tender steamed chicken is smothered with thick red oil based sauce for that rich, spicy, numbing and savoury taste. A highly addictive dish that I recommend.
