Went to Boston Klang for a midnight craving. Of course when one is here, the compulsory order are the steamed lala and nestum mantis prawn. Both are a staple and must-haves! 

The nestum mantis prawn is my utmost favorite! It is a mixture of sweet and salty nestum, tossed along with fried mantis prawn coupled with the smell of butter. It is super flavourful. However, the downside is that the mantis prawn are over-fried, which always happens. This caused the mantis prawn to be super crispy but I could not really taste any of the meat. However, I do enjoy the nestum by itself and luckily their serving of the nestum is very generous! A weird habit of mine is to mix a little of the steamed lala soup with nestum to be eaten. It's a good combination to me.

As for the steamed lala, it is a must have for spicy food lovers! It is not much of the chili spicy but rather the ginger spicy. A precaution though, always drink the soup with care because if you ever accidentally choke on it, it's a hazard! The lala or better known as clams, are fresh and perfectly cooked. Overall, it's a good dish to be eaten especially during rainy days. 

Hokkien mee is not my thing but I did taste a little. The thing about the food here is that if you are a lard lover, you are in heaven! The lard was super crispy despite being soaked in the sauce mixture.
