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.
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.
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.
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.
Steamed “Lala” 清蒸”啦啦” is another dish that you must not miss here if you do visit this outlet.
This steam lala is slightly different version compare to those that I have, sprikle with lots of fried onion, ginger and chili padi.
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.
‘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.
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!
