And of course, one needs to try Tom Yam at a Thai Food place. We chose the clear seafood tom yam which had just the right amount of sourness and had a sweet seafood taste. Another must try!
Finally we tried Lang Sae Lee’s stuffed chicken wings. Not sure how Mdm Lee does it but she’s de-boned the chicken wings and manages to stuff them and still maintain the shape of the wing!
I don’t remember the exact price for each item (Mdm Lee doesn’t issue a receipt) but all this plus 5 roselle flower drinks and a can of 100plus came up to RM60.90 for the four of us. Definitely a steal!
