Sam U Clay Pot Restaurant.

We met up with my daughter Mindy and her hubby Sam for dinner at Sam U Clay Pot Restaurant in Petaling Jaya New Town.

The owner of this restaurant was an ex-partner of Restaurant Sam You (located a stone throwaway).

This is a small and simple restaurant with seatings spilling out onto the walkway.

At the left side is an enclosed glass area for displaying the different types of their signature poached chicken and a chopping area, the main kitchen is located at the back.

Service was fast and friendly.

Parking is ample in front and at the back of the restaurant.

Village chicken (1/2)-seated on a bed of good grade soy sauce and blanched beansprout-meat was average, on the soft side and not muscled (tasted the bald neck chicken last week-it was worst)-the garlic/chillies and the blended ginger were good dips-Rm34/

Clay pot Seafood Beancurd-cooked with deep fried cubed beancurd (silky smooth inside), prawn, sweet pea bean, and florets of cauliflower-a well balanced dish-Rm15/.

Clay pot of assorted seafood cooked with crunchy fish maw, thick and gelatinous sea cucumber, limpet and mushroom-distinctive flavored gravy-Rm28.

Clay pot Garouper fish-chunky and meaty-topped with salty Tau Cheong (Soybean paste), deep fried garlic and garnished with spring onion and cilantro-a fabulos choice-Rm20/

Clay pot Chef special spare ribs (3 pieces)-well marinated and fragrant and the meat easily detach from the bones-good to savor-Rm18/.

Clay pot Iceberg Lettuce-was surprised that it was served in a clay pot-garnished with lots of deep fried shallots-whole plant, leafy and herbaceous-Rm8/

Oil rice-lovely whole grained rice-Rm1.20/

Total bill:Rm138/ (Thanks to Sam for the dinner)
Location:12, Jalan Tengah,
Petaling Jaya.

Duckie-a great meal.
C&CIKI-looks good but average only-next must try the village chicken King.
Stephanie-just a coincidence.
thule a.k.a leo-go during off peak hours.
thenomadGourmand-have not eaten there since the partners broke up.
Heard that the original Sam You in Seri Kembangan is good.
smallkucing-a bit pricey.
