D'Fong @ Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya

Motorists crawling on the Sprint Highway might recently have noticed D'Fong's signboard taunting them by the road; it's worth stopping here sometime for satisfactory Chinese cooking.

If a thing of beauty truly is a joy forever, D'Fong supplies eternal bliss with its sang har meen.

It might only be our prawn-loving imagination, but this plate looks divine from every angle.

We have to post these photos for posterity. Or at least to remind ourselves why sang har meen ranks so high among our most cherished recipes.

But how does it taste? Not bad at all; the noodles were nice & crisp, the prawns were plump, & crucially, the gravy proved reasonably rich with the flavor of roe.

Plus, at RM58++, it isn't much more expensive than what we'd pay at, say, Imbi.

Those noodles filled us up well, but let's uncover a few other potential treasures at D'Fong.

Baked free-range chicken (RM36++). Could be a bit more herbal, but that's nitpicking.

Chilled tofu with century eggs. Naturally, we prefer the latter component of this combo.

No complaints about D'Fong's barbecued meat either. We enjoyed both the roast pork ...

... as well as the duck. D'Fong also serves dim sum on weekends; that's something we're sure will be written about in the weeks ahead.

D'Fong has an excellent wine list, serving some by the glass. And its service is solid. The restaurant seems to be gaining popularity quickly; we were here for an early dinner on a Sunday evening & more than two-thirds of the tables were filled by the time we left at 8pm.
