FOOD: Leong's Kitchenette @ USJ 21, Subang Jaya

 Recently, I got the opportunity to taste this tasty, simple and affordable home-cooked Chinese restaurant - Leong's Kitchenette @ USJ 21, Subang Jaya. I have heard many good and positive comments regarding this place. Therefore, I am very curious prior to taste the yummy-licious dishes they serve here!

It has a typical Chinese restaurant set-up to it located just around the corner of "AMPM Cafe" serving their specialty - Fried Porridge. I am already curious and tempted to try out this fried porridge just by hearing it!

Simple & Spacious looking of the interior with antique decorations around

A family business consist of the husband ( Leong), who prepares tasty dishes for you while the wife ( Joeslin), who keeps the restaurant running. Here at Leong's kitchen, they boast on serving food with Low MSG, salt and oil 

Ice Lime Jelly

Great combination of sour & sweet to this drink. A refreshing drink that quenches your thirst away. With such hot and hazy weather recently, a drink like that would always be great to keep out body hydrated! 

Let me start off this blog with their specialty ( in other words, MUST TRY!!!!


 Fried porridge with Mackerel

A comforting bowl of porridge that just satisfy your cravings for home-cooked food. Freshness of the Mackerel would be vital as it will be the key to this dish! A dish that will definitely be loved by old and young! Garnished with some spring onion, chopped ginger and sesame oil that enhances the taste of this dish! A dish that I'll definitely be back for!

 Fried porridge with Abalone slices

Another great bowl of congee! Similar to that of the Mackerel (previous dish) but replace it with abalone slices. Some chewy texture to your bowl of porridge for a change.

 Fried Porridge with Salted egg & Century Egg
RM 8

 Fried Porridge with minced pork

Here at Leong's Kitchenette, they are also known for their big mud crab which has so much meat in them! 

 Salt Baked Crabs

(RM65/KG - PROMOTION price!!!! )

Honestly, this is one of the best salted baked crabs i've ever tasted! Marinated and baked to perfection up to the extend that the saltiness of the marination can be tasted in the flesh of the crab! One of the dishes I would definitely be back again for!

 Milky Spicy Crab

Those who are a fan of Milky, buttery, and spicy crabs, this would be just the dish for you! The sauce was just so addictive! Fortunately, they also serve "man tao" with dipping sauce to go with for you to enjoy and savour the delicious-ness of the gravy!

 Deep fried mantao with Spicy butter sauce
RM7 - 6 pieces
RM9 - 9 pieces

Totally loving this soft "Mantaos". Deep fried till golden brown that goes well with the spicy butter sauce! I assure you'd definitely ask for more after your first bite! 

Spicy Butter sauce

Main Dishes

 Asam Squid

A savoury dish with the squids cooked to tender-fection. Not only that, the accompanied sauce was just so appetizing! I could even eat 2 bowls of rice with just this 1 dish. The sauce wasn't too spicy nor too sour, it was just perfect that compliments well with the squids.

 Salted egg stir-fried french beans
RM10 - Small
RM14 - Large

 Pumpkin Homemade Tau foo

I have always love Claypot tau foo and this dish has some similarity to it with the pumpkin gravy making the base. Topped with some seafoods and straw mushrooms which give it a little extra bites to it!

Hong Kong Style Chicken Wings

Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside yet flavourful fried chicken wings! Best eaten just like that without any sauces with it.

 Curry Fish Head
RM22 - Small
RM32 - Large 

Fish head curry at a very affordable price! Served in a claypot with variety of vegetables, and not forgetting the Fish head! The taste was good with a great combination and balance of spices of curry.

A great place for family and group gatherings/meal. Serve great food with affordable pricing. Do check out this place if you're around that area!

Till next time, See you!
