Layang Layang’s lengthy menu revolves around Malaysian seafood and vegetarian dishes prepared from fresh ingredients and spices. The prix fixe menu contains only the most popular options, including former prom-queen winner and current appetizer mango-shrimp salad doused in spicy dressing. For the main course, diners can crunch into the sarang seafood’s compilation of shrimp, squid, scallops, and cashews resting atop a fried-taro base, or opt for an entree of homemade, fried tofu, mushrooms, and other veggies. In the Kari chicken, red or green curry splashes over poultry and assorted vegetables for a dish more vibrant than the rainbow refracting from a puddle of coffee. Parched throats find relief with a frosty Tiger beer or glass of malaysian iced tea.
Layang Layang's menu of Malaysian food offers more than 100 choices, but the San Jose Mercury News says you should definitely try the fish balls. The housemade snacks "look like hard-boiled eggs and are sublime," whether you're trying one as a deep-fried appetizer or stirring them about in the ipoh ho hee seafood soup. The noodles in that soup are handmade by Layang Layang's chefs, all of whom hail from Malaysia's mountainous Cameron Highlands. Equally authentic is the ikan bakar, a grilled striped bass flavored by lemongrass and wrapped in a banana leaf.
Tofu—made fresh daily—plays as vital a role in the cuisine as the fish balls and noodles. Guests can mix it with shrimp, squid, and vegetables, spoon it from a clay pot, or see how much they can fit inside a vase brought from home. Vegetarians can also find much to savor in the indonesian spring rolls and papaya salads.
