Serdang is a small town but it has quite a few good Chinese restaurants. The food is generally inexpensive and delicious as well. Yap Yin according to my friend (who happens to be a distant relative of the owners) sells really good Sang Yu ( Haruan). Once served, you will observe that the fish flesh has been expertly 'half filleted' out for easy consumption. The way they cut it is really nice as they slice it according to the texture of the flesh. You have to see this for yourself. Its quite fascinating actually. The Sang Yu was steamed with lots of good soya sauce. The flesh is really sweet and succulent

Another specialty here is their "Lat Chi Tong". Its really "Chi Kut Teh" with cili padi added into it. Hmm the soup really sears the throat. It's spicy "Chi Kut Teh" as I see it. Herbal flavors pervade the whole soup. They use kampung chicken for this soup which accounts for the fact that it being a bit expensive. We also tried their pig trotters which were quite fat and meaty. That made me quite full. After the hearty meal, staying awake was obviously quite a challenge. I didn't eat dinner that day as well.

Just a reminder, everybody parks haphazardly along the Yap Yin road in Seri Kembangan. They double park as who cares? Park anywhere. I'd park on top of a tree if I could. Malaysia Boleh!!...
