Xi Young Xuan, Kajang

by Bangsar Babe

Kajang is an area I rarely venture into though it’s about time I should – there are plenty of hidden gems to discover, according to my dad’s cousin who lives in Country Heights. He took me to dinner at a restaurant named Xi Young Xuan where we had simple dishes that didn’t cost an arm and a leg.


Fuss free interior

Ordering is mostly done in Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese) so if you’re hopeless with both, it’s best to dine with someone who can help you out. rif joked that our kid will be sent to a Chinese school in future so he/she can order food for us next time.


Kam Heong Lala


Steamed catfish

Of the dishes we had, the kam heong lala was my favourite – the one at Xi Young Xuan had plenty of bite from the dried shrimp, and the lala were moderately fleshy. I honestly didn’t care much for the steamed catfish though my cousin uncle seems to love ordering one each time we eat together. I think it’s a generation thing as my dad and rif’s dad enjoys eating catfish too.


Only difference is, dad in-law likes his catfish in curry and I like that too. So whenever he orders fish, I get to indulge in curry/kuah assam.


Two-style pork ribs


Ribs in lemon cream sauce

The two-style pork ribs were not bad; one was cooked in marmite gravy while the other, in lemon-based cream sauce that I liked. I wouldn’t say this dish is very good but it is up to par with some of the better tai chow places I’ve been to.


Claypot tofu


I didn’t care much for the claypot tofu as it was missing a certain richness that you usually get from dried cuttlefish or sometimes, roast pork. Xi Young Xuan is also known for its steamboat, so maybe we will go for that the next time we visit my relative.



If you’re looking for a presentable restaurant to bring your guests in Kajang, this would be it. Though I wouldn’t recommend driving all the way to Kajang just to eat this.
