There’s something about fried chicken that I find very difficult to resist; it’s my all-time must have. When I’m feeling shitty, KFC and KFC is the place to be. By the way, the latter KFC stands for Klang Fried Chicken, which is more awesome than KFC itself.
I’ve been wanting to try Lim Fried Chicken in Subang Jaya for a long time and finally did so with rif, Bok and Anna. This fried chicken stall is located in Restoran Wong Soon Kee in SS14 Subang Jaya and the queue can be quite maddening, I was told. We were lucky we only queued for 10 minutes before we were next in line.
Ordered two chicken legs for myself while the rest of the gang had one each. Okay gimme a break – I finally get to eat here so it is unwise to order so sparingly. The chicken pieces are dipped in a flour mixture that looks like a sodden mess and then deep fried upon order to ensure piping hot freshness.
It was a glorious sight. The chicken smelt terrific, and the skin was golden brown and perfectly crisp. I dismembered mine in a jiffy – breaking the flesh into pieces and tucking into them, still hot. The tender, salty-sweet flesh and crispy skin were a combo of bliss and sin. I chose to focus on the bliss, and less so the sin. My doctor can worry about that part.
You can opt to eat your fried chicken as is or with some Chinese style nasi lemak or chee cheong fun. We shared a plate of nasi lemak with cabbage, mixed curries, (sweet) sambal and mutton. Nothing spectacular as the mutton was tough, but if you want carbs, this would be an option.
All the above came up to RM34 – fairly reasonable for the amount of chicken we took. Thanks Bok, for the treat!

Verdict: Lim’s Fried Chicken is both an experience of pleasure and sin. Depending on how you want to see it, I see it as sheer pleasure.
