There is this new hidden gem in Bandar Baru Klang that serve Thai Authentic street food. Operate by a lovely couple with his wife from Thai. A home-cook now by bringing her learning experience from mom and aunt to our table. Baan Korat Thai Restaurant is indeed one of the places to visit as it was a highly recommended place by a reader.

I find that their Thai street food style is quite similar to those in Hatyai!

Baan Korat Thai Restaurant

They just started to run this place right after the first CMCO which is in June and now they are being hit again for CMCO 2. However, they are still operating now at this moment with limited seating.

their place is pack during lunchtime with their famous serving of that ala cart and their moo ping is a must-have according to many.

What to eat in Klang, perhaps this menu could give you some idea for Thai food in Klang.

Baan Korat Thai Restaurant (3)

For the first time, I am here for their unique serving of Thai Claypot Steamboat (Jim Jum) @ RM 39.90 for 2 pax and also, of course, current famous street food Tomyum Mama Instant Noodle Pork @ RM 28 / Seafood @ RM 35 / Seafood & Mince Pork @ RM 38

their thai Ice tea is also pretty spot on. Thick Thai tea flavour and quite milky. Some of you might find it too sweet but then this drink I find it have to be sweet. One glass will do.

Baan Korat Thai Restaurant (6)

the reason I am here for this is I have never try Thai steamboat before and second, it is cook with charcoal.

The set comes with fresh prawns, squid, clams, slice pork , pork and chicken.

Serve along with 3 sauces which is homemade by the chef herself.

The soup is unique which is clear, fragrant, sweet from pork bone, yet add in with ginger, lemon grass, dry chili and hint of this leave that make the soup itself very unique and keep drinking on it.

After a while, we are ready to dig in. It is indeed pretty good as first time experiencing this.

Dipping with the sauce, it has its own flavour. Gren slightly sour, red a a bit spicy and sour. if were to choose, I personally felt the green chili taste better.

Here is the famous instant mama seafood pot at RM 35. Serve with Thai Roast Pork, Home made thai meat ball, clams, squid, eggs, and fresh prawns.

The noodle is cook to perfection. Broth is sweet, milky, creamy, mild spicy and hint of sour end. The soup is cook upon order.

Indeed one of the best Instant mama noodle pot I have had so far! – recommended!

Baan Korat Thai Restaurant (22)

Another dish is chef special classic dish – Baan Korat Special. Serve in Thai Clear soup with minced pork slab, meatball, clams. Drinking the soup itself is quite interesting and if you are in for some taste experience then squeeze lime and add-in of chili powder. It totally enhances the whole bowl of soup.  @ RM 13.90

They also do serve mookata and other street food. I will definitely come back again to try out some of their other dishes. It seems like one of the best Thai Street food in Klang that I encounter at the moment. Maybe could beat some of the best thai street food in Klang or in Pj.

On and off, I keep thinking where to eat whenever go to Uptown Damansara, and drove pass by this shop Auntie Sim Kitchen uncountable times yet did not make a move to go in till recently. Instantly this place had turn to one of a must go shop in Uptown Damansara if you are looking for Hong Kong stir-fried cuisine.

Auntie Sim Kitchen

I must say, it is a perfect spot for family gathering if you are looking for Hong Kong dai chow in PJ. Train by a chef from Hong Kong and even some of the signature ingredients are flown all the way from Hong Kong.

Hong kong food in pj

Auntie Sim Kitchen (3)

As to preserve heritage and a twist of her own, this is a must have starter. Traditional Teochew Prawn Balls @ RM 35. It is a bit pricy but generous with ingredients. A bag full with mince meat, not too salty yet crispy on the outside with the skin and in it I think do have some water chestnut and also chewy juicy prawns. Perfecto!

Auntie Sim Kitchen (4)

Next is a simple veggie soup, with its broth are sweet and perfect.

Auntie Sim Kitchen (7)

Stir fried Angus Beef with Pepers. Very simple yet perfect in taste. Hint of grind black pepper that did not over power the meat yet the beef was cook to perfection. Juicy and tender that it is medium.

black bean fish

This is one of the dish that instantly hit my palate notes that makes them pretty authentic Hong Kong Dai Chow. Claypot Braised Tilapia with Bittergourd @ RM38 upwards. Not many eateries in KL are able to fried a perfect bitter gourd dish especially topped with black beans. One of the ingredients is imported from Hong Kong that makes it quite authentic.

Anything with their claypot bitter-gourd, I guess should give it a try. I am going to come back for their alternative.

fried duck

To me another local classic is their fried Duck topped with a twist of chef special gravy. Crispy skin, juicy meat and gravy to smooth gravy to tone the flavour down is indeed pretty spot on!

sang har noodle

ahhh, highlight of the night is this : Dry-fried Yee Mee with Freshwater Prawns

Auntie Sim Kitchen (9)

This is not the ordinary shang har noodle (so some of you call it that way). as this noodle was serve, the smell of the big head prawn just trail on the air. Makes u instantly hungry. Looking at the springy noodle just makes me want to instantly dig in!

Auntie Sim Kitchen (10)

Very fresh prawns that had been fried to perfection. Juicy meat that sips with the soy sauce to my liking.  I am in love with the noodle texture as it is one of the best reminiscence to Hong Kong food. Then only found out that it is also imported from Hong Kong. No wonder the springy texture, boink boink and the longish of noodle is just there.

Auntie Sim Kitchen (11)

avocado

To end the meal, we try their evergreen signature which is a must-try is their Avocado in Thai King Coconut @ RM 16. Silky smooth blend avocado puree which is quite prominent in terms of taste that did not give you the raw skin taste yet a hint fragrant of coconut taste is there.  – Recommended!

Auntie Sim Kitchen (13)

A perfect place for Hong Kong Dai chow food in PJ. I certainly will come back to try some of their other dishes.

A new hidden bar have surfaced up in KL. With your least expected area as The Curiousity Iron River 好奇鐵河  is operating at Chan Sow Lin, KL. Indeed a hidden gem for the area. If you are a person who loves to be in a second-hand kind of furniture shop, run-down ambience as I called it a rustic heritage building, then this place is a place that you would want to be.

We came here because of Petai Pizza and little did we discover further its a hidden bar. This place has great classic furniture pieces is also because the owner operates a second hand antique furniture shop.

bar in kl

Discovering this place would be a pain in the ass as waze will bring you to a location here you cant park your car. Best is to park your car at Jalan Satu and walk in this bright one-way street alley.

Looking at some blog posting, they have definitely light up the whole place to a new level. More vibrant and captivating. A neon blue sign board and a deck up Avatar kind lighting garden.

This is one of my favourite walkway. I felt that would be a nice instagramable spot.

little did we know that it is actually a nice bar place. We were here quite early, as bout 7.30pm for dinner. Love the ambience of this place as it is like a modern touch up of a Chinese 60’s herbs medicine shop.

Since we are here, trying out one of my favourite Negroni Cocktail @ RM 33. For this, I think it is more on the sweeter side. Not really my kind of taste or compare to the usuals that I usually have.

Petai Pizza is indeed done nicely and the taste of petai is a bit prominent. Just that the dough need some improvement.

Nothing to shout out for the mushroom truffle pizza.

Indeed a perfect place to hang out as after 9pm, the disco ball is turn on. Totally switched the ambience. They also turn on classic Shangainese songs and also the 60’s and 70’s English songs. Indeed perfect music to be in. Do not mind to come back for round of gathering with friends here.

the curiousity iron river (21)

As they are a newly operated bar, food-wise they still have room for improvement. they need time to adjust and will go back again.

While waiting for next appointment and not sure where to go, he randomly try out Nanyang Cafe in Eko Cheras Mall. While I was writing this, only know that they are actually quite famous among this neighbourhood for a Hong Kong Cafe in KL after Kim Garry.

Eko Cheras

Simple modern interior that reflects much more on the Hong Kong Cha Chan Teng.

Polo Pau

What attracted me to try this outlet is because of their Hong Kong Polo Bun that make fresh in the kitchen, that looks pretty decent.

Hong Kong Cafe

Nanyang Cafe (4)

Menu is quite direct with noodles, cheese rice, toast where it should be. Pork Burger with their french style bun.

Nanyang Cafe (5)

I must say that their drinks are very impressive. All their drink series are very solid or strong in taste. Those with weaker heart might not stand their Coffee. Smooth and strong in taste.

I tried 3:

  1. Hong Kong Coffee
  2. Hong Kong Milk Tea
  3. HOng Kong Yin Yeong

I personally like their coffee if were for breakfast. then their milk tea taste better too.

Nanyang Cafe (6)

wan tan noodle is alright. Noodle is springy and the wanton sui know is pretty decent in size. A prawn sui know.

Nanyang Cafe (7)

Polo bun

This is the main star that caught me into the outlet. Hong Kong Polo Bao with New Zealand Butter @ RM 4.80. It is not too bad for a bun. Fresh soft bun, flaky crusty top and with a slice of butter and a glass of coffee its a great combination.

Came across this brand since last year and went to give it a try for this 蜀香楼成都火锅 Shu Xiang Lou at The Linc, KL. A hotpot person that have been exploring China Sichuan hotpot and I find this place is more for entry-level diners.

mala hotpot kl

Menu is quite direct.

Shu Xiang Lou (3)

The ambiance of this outlet is pretty spot on, by transporting you back to the ancient China dynasty.

Shu Xiang Lou (4)

at the condiments counter, there is a chart that shows you how to mix on their special sauce.

Shu Xiang Lou (5)

Tried their Mala and Pork bone soup. Both are on average. The beginner spiciness is really for those who are not into Sichuan style hotpot. Not too spicy yet numb also.

Shu Xiang Lou (6)

As it was after Christmas party last year and most of us are hangover and we did not try much. only came by to have something soupy and wanted to try the taste one of a Sichuan Hotpot in KL.

End of the day, I still think Xiao Long Kan still pretty good as they have improved over the months and another shop in Kuchai.

If you are not so hardcore like me, you guys can give it a try.  Pricing average per head is about RM 40 – RM 80 (depending what you order)

While heading to Tapestry for coffee, then at the turning of the corner saw this new shop Pizzeria Dihyang at Jalan Yap Ah Shak, KL seems to be pretty good. Decided to try them out.

Pizza

While walking in without any expectation in this slightly luxury interior for a pizza place. While walking in, you are greeting by the friendly manager and I observe there are 4 working floor staff. Immedinately knows that this place won’t be cheap.

Only then now I found out as I write this post, as they are grounded authentically in Naples’ art of pizzaiuolo in sourthern Italy. I believe is a place run by a couple who is the owner as the maker of the pizza, helm at the pizza making station.

Pizzeria Dihyang (3)

Chosen this place also because of its pizza pit that I am suspecting using wood fire, which I am correct.

Pizzeria Dihyang (4)

Of course a pizza dining experience in this ambience must pair with wine or beer. They do have Italian beer series Menabrea Italia.

Pizzeria Dihyang (5)

Each pizza is handcrafted by the chef himself which does not come in a proper round mould, that defines as art upon serving.

Pizzeria Dihyang (6)

Pizzeria Dihyang (7)

A pizza that I ordered and could not recap back the name. As they are using bar code scanning digital menu. The Pizza I ordered is about RM 85- RM 90 if I remember correctly.

Pizzeria Dihyang (9)

It is a thin dough pizza. Soft, not the usual crips you enjoy. Ingredient used is alright.

Pizzeria Dihyang (11)

Italian Pizza KL

Summary its more like a Fine dine pizza place for me. Maybe worth to give it a shot once? As on that day of my dining, there are a lot of ex-pats in there.

It is not bad, just that the price to pay for a pizza is slightly above my budget.
