Aside learning that there’s actually belacan style baby lettuce, now I realised that baby lettuce can be cooked in Sze Chuan style. It not surprising to find this out if it’s coming from Long Grilled Fish Seafood, because this place is known to have variety of choices on, or off their menu. Unfortunately, as I had high hopes on this Sze Chuan style vege, it turns out the belacan style was still better. Perhaps Sze Chuan style just wasn’t suited for me that much, but it was still good though.
As for the fried little squids, I need not say much. Just read from here:

We were introduced this charcoal bean curd. The lady call it the “醜樣豆腐” (ugly bean curd). Aside from the appearance, it tasted pretty much the same, if not exactly the same as ordinary bean curd. The style was pretty normal, tasted quite nice though. The clam soup was our first try. Nothing much to praise about it. I guess Lala Chong’s name is not there for show.
The crabs were exceptionally good. Aside from the giant size, they were quite fresh and the meat don’t stick to the shell as you pull it out. The soup underneath has some wine taste to it, which actually tasted not bad. Though I’d prefer crabs with more crab roe in it. Our dinner ended with the mangoes that we bought earlier. Though some were sweet, some were seriously sour. What a good way to keep the appetite running.
Overall, our dinner was a satisfactory one. I wished this restaurant would move into PJ area instead of so far from where I stay.
