A new discovery by my friend last round and they are so keen to bring me to this place that they said its one of the best for beef soup so far and before I fly back to KL we stop by this shop to have our dinner. Kang Beef House is easy to be located as its located nearby the junction of the triangular in Jelutong heading towards Perak Road on the left side.

Kang (1)

Upon walking into the shop near to this little stall, you can smell the fragrance of the soup trailing into the air that makes me instantly hungry and looking forward.

Kang (2)

Kang (3)

not only famous for their beef noodle, also famous for their Beef Steamboat which I would surely come back next round to try it out.

Kang (4)

 The outlet is semi air condition as they use alot of chilling fan.

Kang (5)

Price here are very reasonable for a bowl of beef noodle.

Kang (6)

Ordered Crispy Beef Balls @ RM 5 which is quite normal & Deep Fried Beef Lobak with their own special seasoning and eat with chili is something good to kick start with @ RM 5

Kang (7)

 Beef Noodle soup with all ingredients added in, from beef slices, beef cubes, beef balls and all other spare part. The soup is thick in flavour, very aromatic and little herbal light taste on the end and love the taste of radish sweet taste. – Recommended~

Kang (8)

Crystal Beef Fried Rice @ RM12.80 is something very unique. I mention unique as with the wording crystal and they actually fried something out with every bite is very crispy with very small tiny cube of crisp. Beef slice is soft and the rice fried with wok hei.

Kang (9)

Claypot Beef Soup @ RM 15 for 2 person with a mixture of beef slices and tendon. Love the soup as its more peppery spicy base with chili padi end that makes it very umph! – Recommended!

Kang (10)

Black Pepper Beef @ RM 15  small  is fried to perfection that the beef slice still soft and not over cook and black pepper sauce all well coated onto the beef slice.

Surely, this is one of the place to hunt for if you love beef noodle soup or steamboat to kill for. Will be back.

Previously when I was introduce to Anuar’s Fish Head Curry & Indian Apam at Lucky Garden, I was told that this malay food stall also offer great food. Decided to come by since I am on my way back to ease my cravings for apam. Yusof Tomyam is another stall ad the far end that enjoys good business at night.

bangsar (1)

Its funny to see how the guy look at me while eating. .  I can see in the kicthen its operate by young malay chef and its quite busy in there with a few chef in a line.

bangsar (2)

 This is one of a very traditional Indian apam next to this Malay stall that I am craving for.

bangsar (3)

Since I was told that thier Tomyum and fish range are a must order then I ordered Ikan Bawal Goreng Tiga Rasa. When it was serve, the aroma of it is so fragrant and can still smell the freshly fried fish smell. The fish is fried to perfection that the skin and tail is so crisps that shower along with this gravy that is so fragrant, with light spicy and sour end. The more I take on the gravy, the more spicy it had become as it cook along with chili padi. NExt is  telur bistik which I forgot to take picture on. Egg fried in gravy that pair with my rice perfectly well.

bangsar (4)

Here comes the Tomyum Chicken. Loving it as it has well balance of spicy and sour to my liking. Chicken is soft that they did not over cook it.

Overall if you are asking me where to get nice Halal food or nice malay food in Bangsar, certainly this is one of the stall that I would be recommending. Decent pricing and the food is above average.

It has been a long long time since I last came back here and hunt for Chuan Chiew Bak Kut Teh in this area. Used to be one of my hang out spots when I was studying, till I have a few disappointed bak kut teh hunting around my housing area till have to come back here for a decent one.

bkt ss14 (1)

SS14 is already quite well know with a street filled with Bak Kut Teh with many offerings. Every shop have their very own customer base and down till which stall you prefer. As too many years back and little did I remember which one was the best and start off with 2nd outlet on the street which is Chuan Chiew.

bkt ss14 (2)

Early dinner it is as the uncle already busy preparing all his ingredient and cutting it off for waiting customer.

bkt ss14 (3)

To dine Bak Kut Teh of course the ambiance must be in Kopitiam Style ..

bkt ss14 (4)

2 types of soup base, one which is all the ingredient being boil along and another one is to mix it around.

bkt ss14 (5)

After mixture or order, and putting it into claypot, its left on this stove to boil till pippin hot.

bkt ss14 (6)

I quite like the Dry Bak Kut Teh here as its cook along with dry shrimp, taste of squid that make the slight saltiness and thick soy sauce to make it thick, along with chili padi to make it slightly spicy. Just perfect.

bkt ss14 (7)

My pippin hot claypot bak kut teh ..

bkt ss14 (8)

I have a mixture of meat, variety of parts, meat is not too tough yet cook till soft as i prefer. The sad part is always remember to order your needle mushroom to be separated if not the taste of it will over power the taste of the soup. As I order another portion without it. Soup base here is mild not so herbal which most of the locals prefer. Soup definitely can be refillable. I prefer mine to be strong in herbal taste but this is good enough to satisfy.

bkt ss14 (9)

Overall came up to RM61.20 for soup with portion of 4 and dry bak kut teh with 2 portion and 3 of us just whack it.

Food discovery on my some of my friends favourite place never fail to impress me. Of course I really need to know which friend that have similar taste bud like mine. :p It was a long weekend and decided to drop by Klang to meet my friend as I have not seen her since she move back to KL. As she know I love to eat then she decided to bring me to this Restaurant New Boston in Kopitiam version that is one of the most popolar restaurant in Klang for ‘tai chow’.

Restaurant New Boston is no stranger to local folks here as most of them arrive as early as 5.30pm to get a spot here including us,even right before the shop open whereby the worker is still arranging the table and chairs, heating up wok and steam machine. Indeed they are like the famous restaurant in Klang.

boston (1)

Everyone just bring their own tea and having a great conversation around the table sipping chinese tea while waiting for the store to start cooking. Every one just place their order first then look for a spot. According to my friend, here is one of a favourite restaurant to many of them including family dinner place.

boston (2)

Just the 2 of us, my friend order all her favourite dish that this Tai Luk Mee大碌面/Hokkien Mee福建面 is a must order. To me I am not a big fan of this noodle cuz in Klang valley its hard to find some where that can fried really nice plate out.

boston (3)

I must say I am impress, as the noodle is well fried with ‘wok hei’ that thick soy souce is thick enough to coat onto the noodle, fried along with pork lard and its big chunky one. Superb in taste and finally I have found one of the best that would made it top 3 best fried noodle on my list.

boston (4)

Steamed “Lala” 清蒸”啦啦” is another dish that you must not miss here if you do visit this outlet.

boston (5)

This steam lala is slightly different version compare to those that I have, sprikle with lots of fried onion, ginger and chili padi.

boston (6)

Soup base is absolutely amazing that is filled with spicy ginger taste along with hint of chili padi at the end that make it a perfect combination, chinese wine that they are using is sligtly mild yet soak onto lala very well. One sip of soup base, you will keep continue drinking it. Lala are very fresh and a perfect simple dish to go along. What I meant different version as, the lala taste serve here is mild in taste compare to others that I have tried before yet it stood up pretty well.

Usually my friend come with her family of 5 they would order this 2 big plate. My version is medium size.

boston (7)

‘Nestum Mantis Prawn‘ is another amazing dish from the restaurant. I have yet come accross to any restaurant that put is so generous with their ingredient. Its like a moutain high fried nestum along with mantis prawn and for 2 of us to eat 3 dish is just  too much. Mantis prawn would feed 3 person easily best of all if please order beer to eat along. Its a perfect companion.

Till date this dish taste still stuck in my mind as nestum fried to crips with egg and chili padi make the slight spicy taste in it and its just aromatic.

boston (8)

This is what happen if you come after 6pm, as the crowd just pour in like wild fire, as people already start queue to get a seat and as it head towards night time, this store would operate the whole street.

If you reach here and have not got a spot, forget about it first as you need to place your order first, as waiting time can easily takes up to 60-90 minutes on peak hour. So please do have patient if you come here peak hour.

Best time to come is to reach at 5.30pm or 11pm onwards.

No doubt that this is one of the best yet reasonable price on food that I have come across as those 3 dish cost me RM38. I am surely going to return for more with more people to try out more stuff. – Highly Recommended!

Last long weekend over Raya, had nothing much to do and decided to drive to Klang met my friend for a simple meal hunting. Of course when you are in Klang, one of the thing to hunt is definitely Bak Kut Teh. As my arrival around that area for lunch time, to get the best Bak Kut Teh is surely out of topic, as far as I know those famous one usually have to go early morning and even sold out before 8am, was introduce to Restaurant Qe Xiang.

klang bkt (1)

Well, my friend brought me to one of her favourite outlet, Restaurant Qe Xiang that is located in Bandar Baru Klang that is actually not that far off from Federal Highway. She told me that, last time this outlet operate in small outlet at the same spot as recent years, they only expended with build up of front portion.

klang bkt (2)

Its one of the place to get Bak Kut Teh during lunch hours as this outlet operate from 8am-3pm

klang bkt (3)

Just only 2 of us we order 2 pot with dry and soup version.

klang bkt (4)

As the dry Bak Kut Teh we order the soft bone part and the meat is braised till soft and gravy is thick with dark soy sauce. A bit spicy at the end as they added chili padi, and I think I had better ones in Puchong.

klang bkt (5)

Here comes the soup Bak Kut Teh as I am surprise by the generosity of ingredient that the serve along as I ordered mixture. Soup is less herbal as I always prefer mine to be thick in Herbal taste but taste for people around here, they prefer less herbal. Soup is a bit thick with sign of boiling quite a while with all the meat being in there and its sweet.

klang bkt (6)

Multi layered pork intestine. Good!

Bak Kut Teh here is surely not one of the best, yet I do not mind to come back here again for another round as the price are pretty reasonable with 2 big pot for 2 of us with 2 rice, and drink is about RM38. Soup is refillable upon request.
