Klangites may recall the Chinese Kopitiam located in the corner shop at the main street in Little India in Klang that was famous for it’s coffee and tea and also the Beef Noodles. It was my favorite place to savor the Beef Noodles as not many places offer such noodles in Klang  but unfortunately Mr. Ng had to close his business as the shop owner sold the property to another person. That was many years ago and only until now when a good friend of mine mentioned about the new opening of the noodle shop by Mr. Ng in a new location nearly a month ago and I immediately gathered a few friends to taste again the Beef Noodles. I took a spoonful of the broth and it tasted so good as before. The original recipe from Canton province introduce by Mr. Ng’s father from China. And those who do not consume beef can opt for other dishes too.

The Sarawak Laksa is also just as good. Not so spicy but very flavorful.

We had to try the Nasi Lemak because it’s a common food in Malaysia and everyone eats it. Here it’s best to go with the Ayam Goreng Berempah.

Just 2 of us and we shared 3 items. Totally satisfying meal and for dessert we had the Durian soft ice-cream. Buy one free one. Yummy!

There are two components of Charlie’s mission. Behind the scenes in the kitchen, the Borneo-born Sonny & Debra employ mainly folks from East Malaysia & try to use a fair bit of indigenous produce for their menu. Secondly, for customers who want to help out, a pay-it-forward sponsored-meals system is available: Give the cashier RM5, take a receipt & post it on the board; other people who come in can claim a free meal using your receipt if they’re short of cash or struggling to make ends meet.

Banana Leaf Curry Rice – Moorthy’s Mathai Restaurant

As common and ordinary as it may sound, we all love Banana Leaf Curry Rice! As Malaysians we are prone to enormous cravings that points us in the direction of a banana leaf restaurant. Haha!

Their signature dish of fried tenggiri fish is a must-eat.

Looking unassuming and even a little dry with its crust of chilli powder and spices, the dark brown chunk hid a juicy surprise within… firm and sweet tasting fish flesh.

So if you are in Subang this is the place to go for a Banana Leaf Curry Rice.

Wan Tan Mee – Heng Kee

Many would have known (probably even non-Chinese) that Wantan Mee (or also known as wanton noodles) is one of the trademark dishes of the Chinese community in Malaysia and beyond. In fact, the availability of this noodles is so abundant that almost every corner in a Chinese-lived vicinity has it.

Being bred in Klang and having tried some new and old Wantan Mee stalls, I have always stayed loyal to the one and only which I think has a quality of taste standing above par.

 But the one that caught my eyes was the one that the captain recommended which is a  Yin Yong noodles with a huge deep fried fish on top of it with plenty of vegetables.

Acha Curry House did not only serves the normal fish, chicken and dhall curries but instead, they opted for a more unique approach which includes salted fish, onion, and crab curry, which somehow works splendidly. Ask any customer, they wouldn’t have any regrets. As for me I love the salted fish curry and have yet to try the onion curry.

Another great addition to have with their banana leaf rice is the ikan bilis sambal which gives you a great burst of spice and flavour with just one spoonful, although in a weird way you’ll want even more when sweat starts pouring out of your glands. The fried bitter gourd are also great as they are always crunchy.

Their fried tinggiri fish as well as their mutton maruval also deserve honourable mention.

We finished off with a glass of Iced Moru(buttermilk with spices) which was very refreshing for a warm day.

Banana Leaf Rice – Restoran Sri Nirwana Maju

A typical banana leaf meal consists of white rice served on a yele sapede (banana leaf) with an assortment of three vegetables, pickles, a selection of curry dishes such as meen kari (fish curry), koli kari (chicken curry), dhal (boiled lentils) and papadum (Indian crackers). Accompanying dishes for the banana leaf rice include lamb, fish, chicken and beef dishes; the chicken masala and deep-fried squid is especially good here.

It will usually be crowded no matter what time it is, so waiting for a table is norm. There’s a reason why it’s crowded more often than not and that’s because the food is good!

The best way to enjoy your banana leaf rice is to dispense with any form of utensils and dig in using just your hands. Use only your right hand as the left hand is considered to be unclean and reserved only for bathroom activities. Sometimes I don’t understand why some people still insist on using fork and spoon.

Sri Choon Keng is one of the oldest operating restaurant left in Pandamaran. Had been operating for 32 years since 1978. It become famous as this restaurant is visited by Prime Minister of Malaysia during the Chinese New Year national level open house in Pandamaran back in year 2009.

Been to this restaurant many times already and I like their claypot curry seafood noodles & mee hoon kueh. Another favorite of mine is the fried pork ribs with yam. As usual they also serve most of the common seafood dishes.

Coin-sized millet chapatti – greaseless but very aromatic & tasty. Smallest I have ever seen so far.

Vada Pav: A potato patty served on a bun with ghee and a spicy flour of chili and coconut. Very similar to a burger, but sans the meat. This was unique and had more of a kick from the spices. Totally love this one.

The best selling drink: The Pranic juice is great and refreshing. It’s a some sort of vegetables and herbs drink which is made of fresh mint, coriander, ginger, lime, pepper, black salt, honey and cumin.

The dining area can only cater a handful of customers so come early before the lunch or dinner crowd arrives. Parking your car can be a problem too.

Hakka Cuisine – Ying Ker Lou

Hakkas have a distinctive culture and history, with a lineage believed to be the descendants of the northern Hans people living in Shanxi, Henan and Hebei. As the named ‘Hak’ means ‘guest’ in Chinese character, as they are newcomers when they fled south plagued by wars and disasters during Eastern Jin Dynasty. Hakka cuisine, to some extent, was greatly influenced by their culture and living conditions during the migration. When fertile area had already been occupied by the locals, they need to roam far and wide for agricultural land. It required great physical strength. Hence traditional Hakka cuisine has these characteristics : salty, oily, flavorful and preserved.
