This restaurant is very famous for it’s Bak Kut Teh in Selayang, Batu Caves near Kepong but I am not here to eat the Bak Kut Teh for obvious reason, I am from Klang.
Claypot Curry Fish Head is one of the many popular dishes in Grandpa’s restaurant. Wow! tasted really hot and spicy full of aroma that really goes well with a plate of plain rice.
In addition we had the Pork Leg Stew which was recommended by the waitress. The meat was tender and juicy.
Pepper Soup with Pork Stomach which was very fiery.
Generally the food was pretty good and I am sure the Bak Kut Teh was good too although we did not order it but I managed to ask for a bowl of Bak Kut Teh broth just to indulge my curiosity and the taste was not too bad actually.

Ah Yee Curry Mee, or 阿姨咖喱面 is located along Jalan Kepong Baru opposite a surau in Taman Kepong, the street surrounded by many other Chinese street food which are famous too.
Chee Cheong Fun is the highlighted here, and of course it is popular with a reason. What makes Ah Yee Curry Mee Chee Cheong Fun noteworthy would probably be the flat rice noodles itself which is smooth, with more chews. It is freshly prepared by a noodle factory using owner’s special recipe, only for Ah Yee Curry Mee stall.
The Curry Kueh Teow is equally good with lots of ingredients and almost raw cockles.
They are very generous with the curry broth because this are the 2 dishes that are most popular with the customers. Tasted really good especially the Curry Chee Cheong Fun.

Bak Kut Teh with Lala
Klangites are normally for the original taste of Bak Kut Teh and to add seafood into the already famous dish by itself only a handful can appreciate it. So it’s really an acquired taste.
Butter Deep Fried Tilapia with Shredded Pickle Cucumber and Onions
Lai Sar Ng(in Hakka language) is made famous in Kajang by the Hakkas and now in Klang too. No words can describe the uniqueness of this dish but once you take a bite in your mouth you will never stop eating until all is gone. That’s how good it is!

The mouth watering menu makes us want to order more dishes but for now we stuck to my 2 favorite dish seafood Kak Kut Teh and Lai Sar Ng.

What makes the meal here utterly delicious is the thick blended ginger that is almost like a paste mixed with chopped spring onions and also the chilly sauce to go with the poached chicken. Heavenly combination.

Pangkor Fried Fish
This house specialty of the deep fried fish is actually the Cencaru fish stuffed with generous amount of sambal belacan. I am a big fan for ‘kampung’ fish, it is a must eat if you are here. Fortunately for us you managed to secure the last piece for the day.

Biggest Chicken Curry Bun in Malaysia
A soft and buttery bun, bigger than palm size and when cut open it’s like a flower shape.
It’s was only 3 of us so we could not order 2 buns and the best we can do was to order the “Ying Yong” which consist of a sumptuous harmony of half Curry Pork Ribs and half “Dong Po” Pork. Both are equally delicious and the curry gravy was thick enough for bread to dip in. We will try the chicken version on our next trip there.
Besides the buns they also serve lots seafood and their most popular one is the ‘Dragon Tiger Seafood Pot’ or also referred as ‘Dragon and Tiger Reunion’ to some. This extraordinary looking dish is a combination of milky and mild curry soup, fused with generous servings of fresh seafood such as a whole crab, prawns, clams, fish slices and meat balls. The dish is comes in boiling claypot along with a plate of rice vermicelli that would soak up the flavor of the soup better compared to rice. Our next trip there we will be ordering this dish.

金针 golden mushroom – classic with steamed tilapia, enoki, garlic, & ginger
干煎 deep fried – self explanatory with soya sauce and some chili too
This restaurant is situated in a secluded area outskirt of Rawang town in a Chinese village called Kampong Lee Kim Sai. “Waze” took me directly to the restaurant. When making my order I could hear some of the staffs and customers speaking in Hakka dialect so I guess the food here has got the Hakka style of cooking.
The lady boss took my order and she recommended me one tilapia fish steamed version with the golden mushroom sauce and one deep fried version with soya sauce and some chilly “padi” and both comes with Wanton noodles. The meal was so satisfying. Totally awesome!
They do serve a variety of dishes but I all opted for the tilapia fish wanton noodles which I have not seen or tasted before.
Altogether they have 6 different types of concocted sauce.
- 金针 golden mushroom – classic with steamed tilapia, enoki, garlic, & ginger
- 酱蒸 bean sauce – brown bean sauce with deep fried tilapia
- 干煎 deep fried – self explanatory, with some chili too
- 油滑 classic oiled – steamed with soya sauce & oil, plenty of fried garlic
- 咖喱 curry
- 东炎 tomyam

The Restaurant owner Mr. Eric Ng(standing) 3 years my senior in La Salle School Klang with See Hock Chye and Victor Silva
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. Eric 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. Eric Ng in a new location nearly a month ago and I immediately gathered a few good friends to eat the beef noodles. I took a spoonful of the broth and it tasted so good as before. And those who do not consume beef can opt for variations of Wanton noodles.
Guangzhou has the richest food resources in China and also the best beef stew. Mr. Eric Ng’s father brought the original recipe to Malaysia and that’s how the beef noodle came about. It takes 3 days to prepare the whole process to perfection and that’s the reason why beef noodles are only sold on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.

Opened by Malaysian couple Sonny & Debra with a view to benefiting indigenous workers from Sabah & Sarawak as well as people who might not be able to afford a meal.
This chicken is damn bloody good. A must dish to order if you re here.
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.

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.
