Ngoh Heong – Chap Teo Seng




Ngoh heong (literally “five spices”) is a much-loved hawker snack of fried items. It has its roots from the Hokkien and Teochew dialect groups.

Traditionally, ngoh heong consisted of four classic items—meat roll (popularly known as “ngoh heong”), liver roll, pink sausage and egg slice. Later, prawn fritters were also added. Now, most hawkers include supplied items like tau kwa (firm beancurd), fish ball, and century egg to extend their range.

Cucur Udang / Tauhu Goreng – Semenyih




And the place that put Semenyih on the food map is an un-named stall located near the Semenyih field (beside the Sekolah Kebangsaan China Semenyih) which is referred to by locals as “Malek Tauhu”. We just call it the ‘Semenyih cucur udang’ place.

They also sell plain fried tauhu pieces, which explains the name, “Malek Tauhu”. The cucur udang are tasty, light and fluffy, with sufficient air pockets inside to soak up the sweet and tangy chili sauce. The fresh prawn (with shell) tops the cucur and chives are added to enhance the taste. This contrasts with the plain taufoo which are dense and rather tasteless. Cucumber slices are added to the order which serve to soothe the taste buds of those who can’t take the pungency of the chilies.

Chicken Rice – Nasi Ayam Hiang Kee

I am a huge fan of chicken rice especially the hainanese chicken rice and the steam version which is always great. The chilly sauce is truly impeccable. If you are not from Klang you will not be using the dark soy sauce with the rice. It’s practically a ritual for Klangites to shower the rice with plenty the dark sauce. An awesome sight and if you have not tried it please do so because you will not regret it.

The first thing you would notice about this restaurant is the antique and traditional items lying around the place. The best part? They’re all for sale. Bayu Timor is one of those uncommon restaurants where you can come in, order your food, and walk around the place and browse through their interior decorations while waiting for your food to arrive. If you see something you like, all you have to do is ask. All the teak furniture displayed are for sale including the tables and chairs that customers actually sitting on it.

Serving local, Indonesian, Vietnamese and Western cuisines. The Laksas’, nyonya kuih, rojak and sago pudding with gula Melaka are all very delicious. Last but not least the Indonesian ice kacang deserved to be mentioned by it’s own. Comes with gula Melaka and the usual ABC ingredients and with additional fresh coconut flesh strips and chunks of avocado. Totally awesome!
