Review: Lammeeya at Damansara Uptown
‘Authentic Malaysian Chinese cuisine close to our hearts’ is the tantalising tagline for the Lammeeya family of restaurants, which specialises in cherished favourites of both time-honoured home cooking & traditional street eats.
Highlights here include the beloved ‘lam mee,’ with comfort-food noodles (choices include thick, thin, mee hoon or kuey teow) submerged in savoury gravy with a selection of toppings such as prawns, meat balls, char siew chicken or mushrooms, plus a tasty side serving of sambal. A bowl currently costs up to RM13.80.
Chee Cheong Fun
Slippery-smooth ‘chee cheong fun’ is available in multiple varieties too. We like the one with mushrooms & minced meat (other options here include curry, pickled chillies with sweet sauce, or soya sauce with oil); enjoyably effortless to slurp up.
Char Kuey Teow
Duck egg char kuey teow (RM11.80). Well-prepared enough to please, flavourful without being bogged by grease.
Newer entries to Lammeeya’s menu include kampung chicken; a slick, succulent serving that two can share costs RM23.90.
Pork’s a pleasure here; Lammeeya’s fans swear by the stewed pork with potatoes (RM9.80) & pork leg with vinegar (RM18.80).
Some seafood is served too; the top temptation’s probably this tangy assam combo of squid & prawns (RM16.80).
Ginger-&-wine omelette’s another recommendation, nicely fragrant (RM9.80), while for veggies, the steamed brinjals with sweet-&-sour sauce, soft but not mushy, (RM8.80) feels like the crowd-pleasing recipe.
Lammeeya also takes plenty of pride in its wholesome, nourishing soups, with familiar renditions such as ginseng chicken, radish, lotus, watercress or cucumber.
Rice rounds up this pleasant spread; the lard steamed version is likeable (RM3), while the barbecued preparation comes hot & hearty with Chinese sausage slices, liver sausage, char siew chicken, char siew & choy sum.
Many thanks to the friendly team at Lammeeya for hosting this meal.
