An awesome meal is always rewarding after a tennis session. We decided to travel a fair bit from Klang to Kampong Baru Pandamaran to try out the famous Grilled Seafood. When we arrived at the Restaurant Pandamaran One Six Eight the place was already packed with customers. We wanted to try the Stingray but it was sold out so we opted for another type of fish and 2 portion of “Sotong”
This town is very close to the fishermen’s village so you can be rest assured that the seafood are fresh and selection varies daily so as the price according to demand and supply.
We had the grilled fish first for a reason and the natural flavor and sweetness of the flesh really stands out with just simple marination and goes well with the balacan infused chili paste and onion dipping sauce
What really stands out here in the grilled Sotong was how each piece was cooked to a really soft and tender texture with nothing being overcooked or under-cooked. The sauce is mixture of curry spices and his homemade sambal which by far the best I have ever tasted. This dish is very spicy and and will leave your lips numb. So I would suggest you order some rice to go with it.

what is Chicken rice without the thick dark soy sauce – distinctively Klang style
The Siew Yoke with crispy skin, the meat was tender, juicy and well spiced, it will be much better if you top it up with some Siew Yoke sauce for more flavour.
The chicken was smooth and tender.

Ginger wine chicken… Love this dish! Kampung chicken cooked with some mushrooms, ginger and Chinese wine. The ginger garnish is fried till crisp.

This shop is located on Jalan Sultan, in Chinatown, KL. From the outside the shop looks ordinary but they serve one of the best chicken rice in the city.
Good food, affordable but always packed. Go early if you want to try their tasty Kampung chicken, delicious char siew and other side dishes like the assam taste mustard plant. This restaurant is only available for lunch.
With plastics seats and tables set up on the footpath plus the woks set up outside this is as basic as it gets. But put aside any qualms that you may have, pull up a stool and peruse the menu (with pictures which helps) as this proved to one of the most enjoyable dining experiences of our time in KL. The service is unsmiling and somewhat dismissive but the speed of delivery of food and drinks was excellent and the flavor and freshness of the food was outstanding.
A restaurant that serve good chicken steamed rice aka Hainanese Chicken Rice. Go for drumstick or thigh in stead of breast meat. Do sample their red chili and ginger paste as it will not be too hot. Also, personally I will recommend on their chicken spare parts.

William’s Kitchen is situated in Bandar Bukit Tinggi 2 which is very close to Aeon Mall and relatively new in the business.
Since they were new in the business their menu was not ready for us so the supervisor recommended their dishes and we ended up ordering 11 dishes for dinner. We were all hungry and eager to try out their food which was very good and we completely forgotten to take pictures until the last dish which was the deep fried crispy fish skin with sweet and sour onion sauce.
Their main attraction was the fish meat(selection) mixed with other seafood drenched with their special broth and always on the stove to keep it warm. Extremely good!
The poached chicken rice which we ordered one day in advance(Tel: 0167899222). All was wonderfully done the chicken, the aromatic and fragrant rice and the chilly and ginger dippings was all great.
If you decide to try out William’s Kitchen be sure to order this 2 dishes.
We will be there again to try out their other dishes.

Yong Peng 永平 is an ideal stopover between KL and JB/Singapore as the town is just 5 minutes drive after exiting the toll gate (Exit 241/ Exit 242) and there are a number of interesting eateries. As the population in Yong Peng is mainly Foochow 福州 , it is an opportunity to try out unique Foochow cuisine.
Yuan Yean is now run by Thomas, the second generation owner. Thomas’s dad was the first to introduction the fish ball business in Yong Peng. After more fish ball restaurants opened in Yong Peng, the small town became famous for this speciality and every corner of the town selling fishball and such.
Plenty of variations from soup to dry and many types of noodles.
Yuan Yean’s claim to fame is their hand made 100% Ikan Parang fish balls with no MSG or preservatives. Tender, bouncy with a nice fresh fish aroma.
Besides the fish balls, another Must Try is the old school Foochow fish balls.
Foochow fish ball is unique as it is like wanton except that the minced pork is warped in fish paste instead of wanton skin. Foochow fish ball is a blend of fish and pork flavours with an interesting mouth feel. Not commonly found except in places where the Foochow people live.
The fried tofu skin and fried fish cake. Both were crispy and the fish cake has a soft inside with a nice fish aroma.
Muar otak otak is really good stuff. Compact, dense with fresh Ikan Tenggiri meat and held together with coconut milk and aromatic mildly hot spices. Yuan Yean got this from a leading otak otak maker in Muar – steamed and served on order.
Totally awesome meal!

Restaurant Swee Hing was formally in Overseas Union Garden in Old Klang Road but was forced to vacate when the owner wanted to turn the existing coffee shop into an office block hence the relocation into the new premises in Sri Petaling which became more popular than before.
Two of my favorite stalls the Loh Mee and Prawn Mee
This popular Loh Mee stall serves 2 version of noodles which is the homemade Mee and Yee Mee and when you eat this don’t forget to add some Chinese vinegar.
And as for the Prawn Mee the broth is so flavorful and even taste better when it’s piping hot.
These are some of the other food that can be found here in RSH which taste good as well.
Wanton Mee, Pan Mee, Prok Noodle, Char Kueh Teow, Yong Tau Fu, Fish Ball Noodle, Curry Mee, Chinese Nasi Lemak, Siew Pau and many more

As long as there’s Bak Kut Teh in the world, I’m okay – Lucas Yap
Literally translated as “meat bone tea”, Bak Kut Teh is a favorite Malaysian comfort food. Who could actually resist the temptation of piping hot stock broth filled with pork meat and bones in a chicken bowl or together with mushrooms, Chinese cabbage and tofu in a clay pot? As good as it sounds, a good bowl of Bak Kut Teh offers several layer of taste, texture and aroma. And all you need is a mound or two of white rice to get you going. Thankfully, Klang has the best Bak Kut Teh spots in Malaysia that might sound like a direct invitation during the perfect cold weather or any other weather for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or supper with any sort of family and friends gathering or sometimes alone(worst case scenario). Metaphorically, it’s a heaven in a bowl or clay pot. Happy slurping the soup and chewing your favorite meat cuts!
“One idiot can ask more questions than seven wise men can answer”. So don’t ask any questions. Just click here for my guide to Klang’s Bak Kut Teh.
