Ah Fa’s Chinese Restaurant 發記特色招牌烤鱼 @ Pudu, KL
Read from kampungboycitygal about this and I just knew I have to make my way here. So I was here for the Father’s Day treat. Afraid that we had to queue, we made our way here very early, roughly before 6pm and found the place still empty. But not after 7pm because the tables were all occupied by the patrons!
Ah Fa’s Chinese Restaurant
Located by the road side at Jalan Seladang, just right behind the RHB bank. This is a Chinese hot food stall specializing in seafood hot pot and their signature is the roast fish in the hot pot.
We went for the Signature “3 fresh” hot pot that comes with prawns, squids, lala clams and a roasted song yu fish head that is priced at Rm 105 nett. There are 6 level of spiciness, from A (non spicy), B (slightly spicy) to G (super spicy). I was warned with the level of spiciness. To play safe, I went for level B – . Yep, they have B minus level!!!
The hot pot came loaded generously with lots of ingredients. There were a giant fresh water prawn, 2 tiger prawns, giant fish head, lots of squids and lala; pickled vegetables, bean sprouts, tomatoes, leeks, pickled radish, mountain high of dried chilis and hunan chilis. We had additional order of tofu (Rm 4) and enoki mushroom (Rm 4) into our hot pot.
We waited patiently for it to boil up before digging in. The broth was sourish, pretty much like the Teochew steamfish broth we usually had but dosed with intense spicy kick. The hotter the temperature went, the crazier it was. Even though the spiciness level I opted was just B minus, it was already burning, very fiery and kicking; addictive at the same time too that made me kept savouring the soup. slurppp!
Look at the amount of hunan chilies they dosed in. Really can’t imagine how people can go for Level C, D, E and so on. Gosh, that’s really very crazy!
The seafood hot pot portion is good enough to share among 4 to 5 pax but there were just the 3 of us. Tapao-ed and topped up with mee hoon for next day meal. Satisfied tummy and we left with sweats too. This meal was good for pore cleansing and perspiration too. LOL.
They own a shoplot too just a stone throw away at Lorong Yap Hin with the name of Fatt Kee Roast Fish. If sitting by the road side is not your kind of thing, you can choose to sit in. To me, sitting by the road side to enjoy this fiery hot pot was a great sweating experience.
