Getting To Know Rawang

I was given a free 1 night stay in The Leverage Business Hotel in Rawang so I took the opportunity to get to know this town a little better.
Rawang is a typical Malaysian town with not much tourist attraction in or around it.
There is a street in the city centre called Jalan Welman which sells mostly Indian wares.
Like most other average-sized Malaysian towns, there are hypermarkets like Giant, Tesco and Parkson. In our quest for things unique to this town, we sought out the food that Rawang has to offer.
We've heard about the Talapia Wanton Noodles at Kampung Dato Lee Kim Sai and decided to give it a try. Located in the midst of a residential area, Restoran R Cheng Fei Zhou Yu Wantan Mee, at Jalan LKS 5 specializes in a wantan noodle dish that is served with the talapia fish. There are signboards at many junctions in the housing estate indicating the direction so finding this place was quite a breeze.

In Malaysia, wantan noodle is popular and so is talapia fish but the two together? That was the first time I ate a dish with this combination.
We paid RM24 for the noodles, vegetables and two glasses of herbal drink. It was a reasonably priced meal but one which I didn't enjoy eating. The fish has a strong mud smell and the inner portion was still a bit raw when served.
Our quest for good food in this town brought us to another popular restaurant in Rawang . Lan Je located at No27-28, Block C Jalan Rawang, Gerai MPS, Bt 16 Rawang is famous for its steamed talapia. We went for this famed signature dish making it the second talapia meal we had on the same day.
These two dishes, rice and 2 glasses of Chinese tea cost us RM28 which I think is quite cheap. It was an excellent meal and the steamed fish, one of the best I've ever tasted.
Before departing Rawang, we dropped by Restaurant Ipoh Road Hakka Yong Tau Fu located at No 54, Jalan Setia, Batu 16, Rawang which serves great tasting food. This is actually our second time here.
A tasty meal.
