Nothing Rhymes with Wong Ah Wah - Kuala Lumpur

As some of you may know, Mr. T and I got married about four months ago. We haven't had a chance to go on our honeymoon since then, so this short and sweet trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, is our mini moon! We travelled to KL from Singapore and we were looking forward to continuing our culinary trip. In KL we stayed in the Bukit Bintang area as was recommended to us by numerous friends. 

Our first night in KL, we decided to explore Jalan Alor, which is a famous tourist street where you can find all sorts of Malaysian and other cuisines. We were a little overwhelmed by the choices at Jalan Alor! Unlike a night food market, Jalan Alor is filled with different restaurants, so it was difficult to choose what to eat as we couldn't taste little bits of everything, we had choose a restaurant and order plates of food. 

In the end we decided to try Wong Ah Wah at the end of Jalan Alor, they seemed to be the busiest restaurant and by far the largest one on Jalan Alor. 

Signature Roast Chicken Wings (RM 3.20 per piece)

The signature dish at Wong Ah Wah is their chicken wings, so of course we had to try it. The wings certainly looked enticing and tasted just as nice. The skin was slightly crispy and nicely caramelised, the marinate was delicious. It was a very Asian chicken wings, so not saturated in sauce, but still very tasty.

Kam Heong Fried Lala (RM 10 - Small)

We also ordered the clams, which I love. These clams were tasty, the sauce was delicious and the clams were small but juicy. They were a lot of fun to eat on their own!

Seafood Fried Rice (RM 16 - Medium)

To add carbs to our meal, we ordered their seafood fried rice. The fried rice looked bland, but the aroma made it irresistible and the flavour was delicious. However, there was very little filling which was a little disappointing.

Salted Eggs Fried Sotong (RM 24 - Medium)

The best dish of the night was the salted egg yolk squid. This dish seemed to be on every other table, so we knew we were onto a winner. And this dish was certainly a winner. The squid were cut thinly so it was very crispy and that batter was packed with flavour especially coated with the salted egg yolk.

Overall, we enjoyed the dishes at Wong Ah Wah. As we were seated at an indoor table, the atmosphere wasn't amazing and the restaurant seemed a little dirty. It was not a five star restaurant experience, but the food was enjoyable, affordable and satisfying.
