Teluk Gong Seafood in Sunway

Teluk Gong Seafood & Steamboat Village
Kompleks Medan Selera
Jalan PJS 10/2, Subang Indah
46000 Petaling Jaya
Tel: 03-5632-3673

This restaurant was opened sometime last year and while I was still living in the USJ area, I used to go there quite regularly. As the name suggested, besides bringing Teluk Gong to Sunway, their seafood is always fresh. You can’t miss the place – after the roundabout from Subang Jaya heading towards Sunway, turn left after the BHP petrol station. You can’t miss the bright yellow & blue building with the words “Teluk Gong” on it!

Its interior is very “sunshiney” – bright orange walls and bright yellow chairs! The pretty lady-boss always has a wide bright smile greeting the customers, too!

Our top favourite dish here is the Salted Eggyolk Crabs. The superfresh succulent crabs are drenched in the sinful cholesterolly salted eggyolks, peppered with chilli padi - absolutely irresistible! The trick is to carefully lick off the rich coating of creamy salted eggyolks before biting into the crabs. Our dish of 2 huge crabs, easily 1.5kg there, cost RM48.

LL’s favorite Fried Rice has huge prawns and lots of orangey eggyolks in it (yeah, seems like eggyolks are the rage here). The rice grains are shiny with flavors and full of “wok hei”. The serving for 2 people cost RM8.

As I was hankering for some soupy vegetables, the natural choice was Spinach in Superior Stock. There were slices of century eggs in the tasty soup and lots of spinach! The more-than-generous bowl of soup for 2 cost RM12.

The pretty ladyboss recommended their Otak Rolls. It’s fried mini springrolls with otak paste as the filling. I found this to be quite mediocre, the otak-otak was pretty mild, not very distinguishable. The serving was quite generous (we had to tapau the balance back!) – price was RM12.

My repeated visits to this restaurant are always for their crabs and fried rice – good enough for me!

Hi there! After reading your interesting review of Telok Gong Seafod, we tried calling the restaurant to make reservations. But the phone line seems to have been terminated. Wondering if you know the new number? Thinking of bringing my family there to try the crabs.

Thanks very much!

Dear Anon, a few weeks back when I passed by the place, it looks like the restaurant has closed down! So sad!
