Lammeeya, Damansara Utama


Lammeeya. Yes, the name refers to Lam Mee, the dish with relatively thick broth with thick noodles. There was a line in the menu that says, “Goodness of our dishes. We use only vegetable oil in our cooking. No MSG”. All right then. We are off to a good start - healthy meal in a contemporary-looking place. The walls feature images of fresh vegetables and ingredients. There’s even a wall with recipes on it. A refreshing ambience indeed!


The restaurant’s menu also includes a wide array of ala carte noodles, fruit juices and daily sets.



We decided to try the Duck Egg Char Koay Teow, RM7.80, and set meal of Stewed Pork and Potato, RM15.80. Each set meal comes with a bowl of rice, vegetable in oyster sauce and a bowl of soup. The clear soup was bland (maybe because of the no MSG approach?), but the stewed pork was passable, despite the fatty portions.
Expecting something different, the char koay teow was nothing exceptional. Duck egg tastes the same as chicken egg, and the dish was the run-of-the-mill tasting char koay teow that you can get from most kopitiams (coffee shops).
The Black Soya Milk, RM3.20, tasted authentic, meaning that there was a strong hint of the soya bean’s rawness. It comes without sugar, which is good for those who usually order drinks kosong (without sugar) or kurang manis (less sugar).
The restaurant is on the same row as HSBC and sits on Umaiya’s (Japanese Restaurant) left. There is another Lammeeya in One Utama, opposite Kluang Station/next to Bread Story.

The meal came up to a total of RM33, inclusive of 10% service tax. Overall, the place features average-tasting meal at a price that’s neither expensive nor cheap. But it definitely faces some stiff competition from restaurants along the many blocks of Damansara Utama, some of which, offer better tasting meals at a cheaper prices (but maybe minus the “refreshing” ambiance).
