Lucky Quan @ Kuchai Lama

Lucky Quan does a creditable job of bringing the flavours of Hanoi to customers - the extensive menu encompasses interesting recipes that range from ark clams that pack a firm bite (RM25) to noodle soups swimming with baby octopus and pork blood curd (RM13.80), savoury frogs braised with coconut milk (RM28) to a sweet, textured purple yam soup with minced pork (RM15). The food emerges fresh, hot and hearty, bearing a reassuring ring of authenticity. Wash down with apple-bittergourd juice and herbal tea.

Lucky Quan
2 Jalan 8/116B, Sri Desa Entrpreneur Park, Kuchai Lama, Kuala Lumpur. Daily, 1030am-11pm.

  1. Generally, I do prefer Thai but Vietnamese is good too. No frogs for me though, thank you very much. LOL!!!

    1. Suituapui: yeah, i like vietnamese cos it often tastes a teeny-weeny bit healthier :) heheh, and i like frogs cos they remind me enough of chicken, but even smoother :D

  2. I've never had (or seen) purple yam soup before...it looks more like a dessert! ;) I've never had large ark clams before either (which look like a giant version of our see hum) coz I just can't bring myself to pay more than RM50 for one Japanese akagai! O_o These ones, RM5 for 5, at least seem more affordably-priced albeit smaller in size but still bigger than our see hum....hehe! ;D

    1. Contact.ewew: yeah, i would definitely have thought the purple yam soup was a dessert if not for the presence of the pork inside and the spices :) you're right - the ark clams are very reminiscent of see hum, but significantly bigger. for those of us who enjoy cockles, these are worth trying! :D

  3. Wow! They eat raw clams and blood too. I had their yam dessert drink recently but it was a bit tough to swallow.
