Just like any other Chinese restaurant the set up is simple and basic. The food is basically very good as we had our dose of Hokkien Mee which is very popular here and practically every table has this dish. You can request more lard to be added. We also had the Sang Har Meen which is also a killer. Our third dish was something we had not tried before the deep fried 3 layered pork with roasted garlic. Quite flavorful actually.

The pulls to this shop are definitely their ‘wu kok’ and ‘chai pau’. I saw boxes and boxes of takeaways, trays and trays of uncooked ‘wo kok’ dipped into a hot wok of oil, and steamers after steamers of various ‘pau’s being brought out from the kitchen to the counter for purchase. No regrets dropping in here for breakfast before heading for Sekinchan.
I only ate the Wu Kok and Chai Pau which tasted so good and with a cup of coffee. Bear in mind that there are no pork in their food and only chicken is used. Good to see Malay, Indians and Chinese patrons seated and eating in a common place like this kopitiam.

This very authentic Malay food restaurant in Klang is situated out of the town in a residential area and if you are not a local finding this place would be a mammoth task but then we have the waze.
Lunch time is usually pack but then it’s worth the wait for a place to seat as the food there is so fresh and you will be spoiled for choices. I opted for the Nasi Kukus and took as many types of dishes as my plate can accommadate. The banana leaf grill fish is must eat item. Just simply awesome. The sauce blended very well with the grill fish.

After finishing my business appointment in KL Sentral I decided to take a short walk out of the station and into Jalan Tun Sambathan in Brickfields for a quick lunch and was walking aimlessly looking for something nice to eat and could not find one. I decided to call William who is studying in Methodist College nearby and ask him to join me for lunch but he said was in Awana Kijal in another state. I ask for his recommendation and he mentioned Sin Kee and I told him that I am now standing in front of the restaurant. LOL!
Well, they are famous for their steam rice signature dish “Man Fan” (焖饭)
The rice was covered with a red bowl that comes with pork, squid, Chinese marinated sausage meat (腊肠) and other ingredient. Somehow I just feel that it is expensive when it cost about RM9.50 per plate although it is quite delicious.

The famous Soong Kee Beef Noodles from Jalan Tun HS Lee(Jalan Silang), KL has opened a branch in SS2. This place is famous for their dry version of beef noodles but I prefer the soupy type. The broth is just nice and not so overpowering with the tenderness of the beef slices and the springy beef balls.
My side order was a plate of soft beef tendon which was just awesome and practically melts in your mouth. My kind of food!

The wall in the restaurant is decorated with a huge chalkboard written with Maths formula which reminds me of my sixth form Double Maths. The Old School menu which resemble exercise book used during school days certainly brings back old school memories. In keeping with the “school” theme, waitresses are dressed in school uniforms which looks more like Bangkok school girls.
Since it was my first trip to this place I ordered something familiar which is the Nasi Lemak with 3 types of pork dish – Siu Yuk, Hakka fried and Rendang. All the 3 tasted real good and I have to add another serving of the Sambal which was not sufficient for me. The serving is big so can actually feed 2 normal person.

Authentic South Indian cuisine.
A banana leaf loaded with vegetables, curries, achar,papadam and fluffy white rice is probably the epitome of a satisfying meal.
“To me, it has to have a well-cooked rice, crunchy pappadam, fish curry and fried bitter gourd.”
To me the meal is not exactly cheap but it was quite good.

Most customers prefer their famous kolo mee but this place that specialises in all kinds of Sarawak noodles definitely has my vote for serving one of the best kway chap in the Klang Valley. Slurp down the addictive dark brown broth packed with flavour that is sprinkled with shallot crisps for extra umami. A bowl is packed with innards like intestines, heart and ear, thinly-sliced pork belly, all chopped into bite-sized pieces. Even the broad rice noodles are excellent with an unbeatable silky smooth texture. The bowl of noodles is also served at the perfect piping hot temperature for you to slurp it all down without feeling that it’s too rich-tasting.

This little restaurant is practically run by Mr. Ravi and his wife. The restaurant is named Kerala simply because his wife comes from this state in India. Since Kerala is populated by Malayali people their cuisine are based on that.
When my working base was in Port Klang many many years back I frequent this restaurant regularly even for tea breaks. Unfortunately I left Port Klang and so did many other companies to a more vibrant town such as Klang and Shah Alam.
Subsequently they lost many customers and now barely break even. After being away for a long time my former school mates and I made a special trip for lunch here. This English speaking couple kept their spirit up and maintaining the quality of the food that they served. We had a wonderful and tasty lunch.
If you are in Port Klang please go and visit this humble couple in their little restaurant. Taste their food and enjoy them completely.

This place is off the main road and deep into a Kampung area and adjacent to a river. The ride from the main road to the restaurant is quite unpleasant as the road is very uneven and many stretches are not tarred road.
Once we reach the restaurant the aura changes as we were greeted by the majestic settings of the restaurant just beside the river.
Too many items was in the menu so we chose the best authentic Thai cuisine. The food is actually very good.
