When I was still working at KL, one of the restaurants I had always wanted to try was Yap Yin Bak Kut Teh at Seri Kembangan. Besides being near to where I stayed, Yap Yin’s famous Steamed Sang Yu (Snakehead) also stirred up my curiosity, well mainly because I never had any steamed Snakehead before. And I heard it was really good too!
But before I continue further, I just want to apologize to my makan buddies for bringing them here. You guys know who you are if you’re reading this. Anyway I am saying that because the food we had that night was pretty average with only one or two dishes really stood out. And personally I was quite disappointed with the Steamed Snakehead. It didn’t quite lived up to its reputation.
Steamed Sang Yu @ RM36. The only great thing about this dish was the fish’s freshness. It was still alive before being cooked, and you can see them still alive swimming around in the aquariums at the restaurant. The Snakehead’s flesh was nicely sliced into bite pieces that can be easily picked up using a chopstick, hence making it a lot easier and less messier to enjoy. But still, you need to lookout for the tiny bones that may still be present in each slice of meat.
