Best Clams in KL

Written by Updated ago

Ask a bunch of people whether they like clams and you'll hear a resounding yes. Clams are just as good as any other seafood and they're arguably more addictive as well! Locals would fondly call them lalas, and they have a good depth of flavour to them. They have a delicate but chewy texture, a taste that lets your mind stray to your last visit to the ocean. A nicely prepared dish of this will not have an overpowering fishy taste, but will be friendly acquainted with your taste buds.

    People call it the best halal Chinese restaurant in town. It's also where you can find some of the best lalas and other types of seafood at a cheap price. This is what you call cheap cheap good good! Their Sweet and Sour Lala is not cooked in the usual Chinese style, but it still tastes as good if not more. They also have other lala dishes so do try them out as well.

    The clams you'll find in Meng Kee have fat and soft flesh. Added with their sauce that is just the right combination of ginger, soya sauce and sugar, you'll end up with a very satisfied belly full of lalas. This makes Meng Kee a must try for all lala lovers! You don't even have to worry about those shells without meat in them as this is almost a non-existent problem here.

    Bakar

    As their name implies, Bakar has their modern cuisine cooked over a grill flame. At the end of your meal, you'll have to agree that the flame-licked char is a delectable flavour. Although not as popular as some of their other dishes, their parcelled clam bake definitely deserves some of the spotlight as well. Even after the waiter clears the plate, the taste of its broth will continue to linger. 

    Tips

    Reservations can be made at their website

    Things to expect

    The prices are a little on the higher side as it's a casual fine dining restaurant.

    You can find clams in superior soup in most Chinese places serving seafood, but what makes Hau Kee's Siong Tong Lala different is its rich broth. Their basic ingredients of ginger, garlic, Chinese wine and coriander has an extra kick from the addition of cili padi. At this place, the word 'superior' may very well be an understatement. You can expect your clams to be plump and clean, so don't worry about biting into nasty grit.

    Tips

    Parking might be difficult

    Things to expect

    The place may look messy and unorganised.

    They only serve about 10 clams on a plate here. Are they being kiamsiap? Not at all! It's because they have giant live clams residing in their tanks. Riverboat Clams in Thai Sauce is beautifully flavoured with a sweet and spicy Thai sauce that has a tang of savouriness. You won't be able to help but to spoon up all the sauce to eat with your rice.

    Their Signature Steamed Clams with Chinese Wine is a favourite amongst regulars of this highly raved about restaurant. It's cooked with Chinese wine and garlic, similar to the Siong Tong Lala, but with its own unique taste as well. You're bound to see at least one of these two dishes, sometimes both, at neighbouring tables. Come here for some good value street food!

    One of their recommended dishes on the menu, Fresh Clams will have seafood fans in awe. Their clams have a mild briny flavour that is further accentuated with the white wine sauce for a classier take. It's no wonder that these clams are one of Opus' best dishes. Remember to mop up their yummy sauce with the bread!

    Maybe you've heard of this place for having chicken wings with the most wow factor, but their Kam Heong Lala is certainly not lacking either. Kam Heong means 'golden fragrance', and you'll find that this will whet your appetite right up! You'll be tempted to wolf down the whole plate yourself, but you know what they say, sharing is caring. Just order more servings!

    Try to avoid peak hours.
