Awesome Standing Chicken @ LYJ, Sungai Buloh

I know, I know it's probably a crime to blog so frequent. But man this long weekend is probably one of the few weekends that I am so free staying at home doing nothing other than sleeping, eating and blogging! In stead of saying it's boring staying at home, I say hey that's a good thing before I get busy again! :)Very unlikely you will find it easy to find this restaurant.
Remember my Easter breaky and lunch posts? The same night we had a sumptious dinner too! Many thanks to 3e's recommendation, we drove all the way deep into Sungai Buloh, passing by some industry area, to Restaurant LYJ Sdn. Bhd. (don't play play, people has 'Sdn. Bhd.' title ok!). The restaurant looks rather like a normal Chinese restaurant, but definitely a VERY CROWDED one.
While you are not allowed to book a table beforehand (yes and for that we waited for our table for about 20 minutes), you MUST PRE-BOOK some of the dishes on the menu, namely their famous Standing Chicken and Char Siew (BBQ Pork) and probably some other dishes that I might not know.
Now here are a list of dishes we had that night...A very special cold Paku vege salad.
Stir-fried Kailan with Yam.
Some Tofu with Pumpkin.
Fish with some sweet and spicy sauce with some petai too! Yay~! Petai~!
Stir-fried pork with Lady's Fingers.
Char Siew (BBQ Pork).
Last but the most important... The very famous Standing Chicken!!!
My apology for the bad quality of the pictures because we were all busy eating the Standing Chicken with hands! Can't do much with the camera at the same time!
Eating with hands? Oh yeah... We were given a packet of plastic gloves to put on and all you need to do is to pinch all the meat out of the chicken! Like this...Hmmm... Papo looks like he was 'yam si-ing'... LOL!
Let me assure you that 3e is the champion for her expression in these pictures!
See... Match that expression if you can!
I don't know what was that for... ==|||
Yeap, Jan Yi and Ducum made sure that the chicken were all gone!
Like they've never eaten a chicken for ages...While we all looked with amazement...
Honestly, at first I thought the Standing Chicken was just a gimmick to attract customers and that the taste may not be good. But man that chicken was delicious! I think making the Chicken stand actually makes a difference. With all the oil dripping down on the plate, the chicken skin remains crispy and well I must say the chicken meat was pretty smooth too! Pefecto~! Plus, what a way to enjoy roasted chicken! Looking at those pictures, you probably know we all enjoyed the chicken a lot!
The other dishes were yummy and unique too! I mean, Kailan with Yam, Stir-fried Pork with Lady's Fingers, Tofu with Pumpkin, etc, pretty odd, right?
Now for 12 persons, 9 dishes (including two whole chicken), the bill came up to only RM240! That is like 20 bucks per person! Man this is the one restaurant that I would label it as 'GOOD AND CHEAP'~! :D
But 3e was right, we shouldn't promote it so much, otherwise the restaurant will become more famous and the price will be increased!
