Weng Fung Restaurant @ Langkawi

The last time I wrote about this restaurant in Langkawi was here. It was during my first trip to Langkawi with the new job in August and I went there for lunch. Ever since, I have actually been going back a few times for lunch during these few months and without fail, I will order a mantis prawn religiously every visit.

I went there for lunch on the first day for my market visit trip and as usual, I ordered my steamed mantis prawn with egg. After having paid the bill, the boss of the restaurant showed me a gigantic prawn. It was so big and it was a foot long!

I told myself, I will come back the next day to eat this prawn and which I did! My friend was laughing at me when he saw this picture. He asked me if I actually carry the measuring tape along everywhere I go. I didn't and that measuring tape was not mine!

Look, it's bigger than my hand!

I would suppose that the best way to savour the prawn is by steaming. That way, you can taste the freshness of the meat. I opted for ginger, wolfberry and mushrooms to be steamed together with the gigantic Tiger prawn.

After it had been steamed, the prawn actually shrunk in size. It didn't need much effort to separate the meat from the shell. The taste - fresh and succulent. You can also taste the sweetness of the meat. This is really a fresh prawn and I'm very happy about it. The price is RM150 for 1 kg and what I just had is just RM42.

The dish above is actually the "Foo Yong" omelette. What I didn't know that the version in Langkawi is very much different from the version in KL or elsewhere. The one in Langkawi is cooked with shredded cabbage, carrots and spring onion. The egg is all scrambled up with the vegetables whereas the ones in KL is actually spring onions, chilli and shrimps cooked in a perfect omelette.

The clams cooked spicy style is also very nice. They do not do the "Kam Heong" style here but this version is done with bean paste and spices with lemongrass. It's very interesting and something different from the cooking in the mainland.

Cool down with a Pandan Coconut!

Overall, I am very satisfied with the meals here and will continue to come back and patronise this outlet for lunch. This meal is less than RM100. Very good value indeed!

These are the L-sized ones... In KK, you can get the XL, XXL...even some the size of my arm. I posted on it sometime ago. Nice...firm flesh but the huge ones - not good for steamboat - the soup overdose - will end up tasting like har mee broth!

i wonder if we can tell which of these large prawns have some roe near their heads. those are the ones i love, heheh :D
i think this prawn is as large as my foot :D

STP: Wow.. i would love to see those XXL prawns! I don't mind the har mee broth. I like it.

Sean: Yeah it's as long as my feet! haha.. but the ones I had didn't have any roe sadly.

Li Wei: Oh yeah and I almost forgot about it.

thule a.k.a leo said...

lol at KY's comment! yeah.. maybe you have a small hand :P but it's OK la.. easier for ur future bf to hold on!
there is another way to taste the natural sweetness of prawn or mantis prawn besides steaming... I call it salt-baked! I had a fantastic version of salt-baked mantis prawn on my recent trip to Ipoh (I stopped by Bagan Pasir...) I could not forget how succulent and delicious it was :)

eiling lim said...

KY: Haha... on the pessimist side, yes my palm is really small!

Thule: ooh I also like salt-baked crabs but I haven't tried salt-baked prawns. Will ask the restaurant to try it the next time!

Anon: I don't know but I do know I looked fat in that picture compared to the previous posts.

Profesjonalne [url=http://www.bezplatne-pozycjonowanie.pl]bezplatne pozycjonowanie[/url] stron internetowych obecnie jest bardzo popularne. Firmy wrecz przescigaja sie w swiadczeniach uslug, dostepnosci narzedzi i calkowitej wiedzy zapewniajacej swoim klientom najlepsze ulokowanie w Internecie. Dlaczego pozycjonowanie stron www jest takie istotne? Otoz kazdy tworca strony chce, aby jego dzielo w wyszukiwarkach internetowych bylo na jak najwyzszych pozycjach tak, aby spora liczba osob mogla ja odwiedzic. Nalezy jednak zgodzic sie, ze pozycjonowanie stron to dobra metoda na zwiekszenie popularnosci swojej witryny. Im wiecej odwiedzin, tym wiecej zarobionych pieniedzy. Zwlaszcza, jesli strona dotyczy sprzedazy danych uslug badz produktow. Oczywiscie wiekszosc chcialaby nie placic za uslugi pozycjonowania, ale w dzisiejszych czasach nikt nic nie uczyni bez zaplaty, wiec pozycjonowanie za darmo nie wchodzi w gre tylko przy znajomosciach. Prawda jest, ze Internecie istnieja miliony stron, a bardzo duzo z nich o zblizonej tematyce. Zwykly czlowiek nie zapamietuje szczegolowo adresow, wiec wchodzi na kilka pierwszych hasel wyswietlonych po wprowadzeniu do wyszukiwarki i kazdy chcialby zeby padlo wlasnie na jego witryne. Szczesciu trzeba tylko pomoc.
