the ultimate must have is fried sui kaw @ RM 1.60, Fried Foo Chuck @ RM 1.60

ipoh road yong tow foo(7)

Cheong Fun @ RM 2. I think I am a bit noob in this, as they serve plain cheong fun. Do not know what to do, I just add in their sweet sauce.

Then order their Paper Wrap chicken that turns out to be fragrant, glistening with the sweet sauce to my liking and I guess good to have it along to pair with my cheong fun.

I will certainly come back again to this shop as I find the ingredient they serve is quite solid and quality with decent pricing.

There is actually a hidden gem in Jalan Ipoh, as recently was introduce by my colleague as this is one of a Famous Hainanese Chicken Rice in that area that located right behind HSBC bank, or just right next to a river.

If you drive pass by without slowing down, with cars are parking infront blocking their frontage, you will certainly miss them as they are operating under a small hut.

If not mistaken, they have been operating in this place for easily more than 10-15 years. Just loko at that Char Siew and Siu Yuk hanging around there.

If you come here during lunch time, it is pack with diners from offices nearby.

As there are a few of us, we prefer different types of meat. Since this is my first time, I order the 3 mix combination. @ RM 10 Fill with chicken, roast pork and char siew.

Servings is pretty decent, as it is not much but good enough to try it out. Roast pork  is good, as it have well balance of meat and fats in between and best of all the skin is crackling. I wont say char siew the best but decent enough for any cravings. Chicken is soft and juicy to my liking.

If you order a portion of only Classic Hainanese Chicken Rice @ RM 5.50, I would say the servings is quite generous.

Not your normal white rice, at least it is a fragrant chicken rice style.

A classic meal for lunch and turns out to be quite satisfying. Maybe this is one of the best Hainanese Chicken Rice in Jalan Ipoh?

Since I have move job to a new office that is base around Jalan Ipoh, I am now starting to explore what is good around this area. Exploring food in Jalan Ipoh that leads to my first discovery. This is one of the best claypot chicken rice in Jalan Ipoh.  This Charcoal Claypot Chicken Rice has no name on it as I read from vkeong blog that its worth to give it a try.

This uncle had been operating and cooking in this same place for about 30 years and it is a family business that runs by both husband and wife. Was told by the uncle, he specially curated a few things t make it quite unique as he only use charcoal all the way from Taiping, as the flame is much more control or concentrated and special dark soy sauce from this particular supplier.

Charcoal Claypot Chicken Rice (8)

during lunch time, it is quite pack and you can see this whole strech is pack with petrons that only come here for his Charcoal Claypot Chicken Rice only. Most of them here are his regular that eaten since from young till to adult.

claypot chicken rice 1 pax @ RM 8 (if I remember correctly) is filled with fresh chicken that is well marinated and Chinese sausage.. Soft and juicy that cook to perfection. Best of all, it comes with a slab of salty fish. (you have an option not to have it). But it is a must have ingredient for me in my claypot chicken rice.

I have also forgot to ask them add egg for me. That would have make it even better.

Front is for 1 pax and behind is for 2 pax.

This claypot chicken rice is slightly different in cooking method compare to what I have had previously. Rice in claypot base is not really burnt at the bottom as to some of us might like it. This had cook to just nice where you can scrap all the rice up without burnt edges. Dark soy sauce gives it a lift of flavour but to me still sllight lacking of flavour that I like which is missing out Chinese wine in it. (only my preference)

Uncle told me that this is the special dark soy sauce that he is using. To some of you operating fnb might want to consider this too.

just that I prefer my claypot chicken rice with some edges burnt on the rice to make it more aromatic. Love to have chinese wine in it too.  Just that every one have their own recipe. This is not too bad though.

One of the place that I recently visit certainly make it a hidden gem around the area. It was a surprise to me that, in that area actually hid one nice restaurant, although I went to KLPAC for some local stage show a few times. Neither did I know there is actually that exist here. KLPAC is actually like a new dimension as you enter the guard house with tress flanking on both side that will lead you to a abandon house smack right in the middle on the narrow road. Just follow the flow you will reach to another end of the park is Samira by Asian Terrace.

SAmira (1)

Here we are today hunting for Thai Food that is located directly opposite KLPAC and you will see this red brick wall standing tall with bamboo tress hidden behind it.

SAmira (2)

Right here in the park, this is where the restaurant is hidden in that you actually sit in it, you will get to enjoy the view of the park and pond.

SAmira (3)

Getting into the restaurant is pretty tricky, as you will be entering a little maze and you will reach this wooden bridge with  a huge pond next to it.

SAmira (4)

As follow the flow of the wooden bridge, you will reach the main area of the restaurant.

SAmira (5)

The ambiance of the place is truely amazing, that you got transported back to another world. Found out that the previous owner runs Japanese restaurant and it was taken over that now serve Thai Cuisine.

SAmira (6)

Surely it is a nice place to have quiet and peaceful dinner with family and friends, or would make it a nice place for your special occasions.

SAmira (7)

or you can be seated outside chill on the wooden bench and table.

SAmira (8)

overlook the pond and park.

SAmira (10)

In Thai food range is hard for me not to order this few drinks – Ginger and Lemongrass, Lemongrass and Basil drink.

SAmira (11)

The first serving caught me by surprise, as it the first time I came accross Crispy Catfish with Mango Salad @ RM20, fried to perfection that it is very crispy as you bite you can still hear the cracking sound. Easily to be peel off , eat along with mango salad gives you another new bursting flavor. – Recommended!

SAmira (12)

Vietnamese Yam Salad is another new dish to me, that hardly come across a Thai restaurant serve such a unique entree dish. Yam was fried to crisp shower with some lime juice, fish sauce and sugar. Sourly is not just the taste as to make your taste bud to wake up up,  chilli padi is added in to make it sourly spicy.

SAmira (13)

Another one of my favourite entry as I just love sour dish to kick start with. Huge juicy prawns top along with pamelo, as you take one full bite of it, mouth had been burst with sourish juicy pamelo follow by spiciness at the end. Thai Pomelo Salad is something that you must not miss for as start.  RM 24 REcommended~

SAmira (14)

Tom Yam Goong is one of a thai soup that you must not miss too. If this soup is serve pippin hot then it would have been a perfect dish. serve along with seafood – prawns, squid and fish fillets. @ RM30

SAmira (15)

Grilled Norwegian Salmon With Basil Leaf is something that I truely enjoy, as I do not really love basil taste on my food, yet they are able to tone it done and blend well with the gravy giving it a perfect mix of balance with the thick sauce that cook with mix herb.

SAmira (16)

Southern Thai Masaman Curry With Beef @ RM 28 will be a perfect pair with white rice.  Gravy is thick yet slightly sweet in spicy curry, and rich with spices that cooked with tender beef slices is just delicious.

SAmira (17)

Traditional Thai Tom Kha with Chicken

SAmira (18)

SAmira (19)

Steamed Squid with Chilli and Lime Juice @ RM 28 – juicy squid brought to steam first then drench in sourish soup. I love the soup and chewy squid with my rice.

SAmira (20)

Grilled Fish Fillet in Banana Leaf (Otak-Otak) @ RM 32

SAmira (21)

When this dish was serve River Prawns with Lemongrass Sauce, we were like ‘wahhhhhh’ as it was set on the table it feels like the prawn got rape as it is tremendous huge prawn that was place on the table. I had 3 of this that making it particularly like I am having the whole plate already as prawns were very fresh, with roe and the lemongrass sauce @ RM35

SAmira (22)

Pineapple Fried Rice that smells very fragrant, cannot deny it is with pineapples, and spices akin to kunyit @ RM18

SAmira (23)

Do not ask me why, as I just love Phad Thai Noodle with Prawn and Egg @ RM16 and I would say its one of the recommended dish that make it well fried with ‘wok hei’ and mix all ingredient in, just comes to my liking.

SAmira (24)

Pineapple Lamb in Coconut Sauce is another new dish to me. Mild in coconut taste with slightly thick gravy yet hint of pinapple sour sweet taste is detected after that. I just place this whole bowl infront of me. – Recommended

SAmira (25)

Spicy Chicken With Chef’s Special Sauce @ RM 22. Chicken is well prepared with outer layer fried to crips with meat is soft. It is very    fragrant with spices in thick coconut milk. Another star for the night.

SAmira (26)

Pan Fried Banana with Ice Cream @ RM12

Mango Sticky Rice @ RM 18, that mango is fragrantly sweet and by dipping a bit of coconut gravy with sticky rice and eat along all in one bite gives you the satisfaction.

At the end of the meal, all of us were satisfied with the  amazing dish that this restaurant have to offer as I find the food price is decently price along on the quality that we had, surely we will return again for more. It will be another recommended Thai Restaurant in my list.

Sometimes, when you crave for Bak Kut Teh, you need not drive all the way to Klang for your favorite stall, sometimes, some where nearby or some where in a commercial area will have a nice BKT shop that was until recently, we found new love for our BKT outing stall which is this Xingang Bak Kut Teh, that located a street away from Leisure Mall, Cheras.

bkt (1)

We were told that this restaurant serve authentic Klang homecook recipe Bak Kut Teh and immediately we arrange to drop by.

bkt (2)

It was Sunday late lunch, and there are quite a number of crowds here too.  As we sat down, the crowd start pouring in till near full house.

bkt (3)

Normal menu they have here, and one thing that caught our eyes was their pricing. I would say a bit cheaper compare to those places like Jalan Ipoh or KL area.

One unique thing in this shop is that, you can choose how your Bak Kut Teh to be served, can be either in Claypot or in glass bowl like those in Klang, pricing definitely will be slightly different as for me, I always prefer mine in Claypot.

bkt (4)

We ordered, Dry Pork Ribs mix with Trotter pot to start off with and its quite a surprise to me that they add in ladies finger in it. It was cook till quite dry, that the think soy sauce able to coat with the meat, and you have to stir it fast to prevent the meat from sticking at the side or base of the pot. Will be a very good companion to eat along with rice, as it is not too salty that just nice.

bkt (5)

Claypot Ribs @ RM 9 that served, just enough for me, if I am eating by myself, and by this time, I just cant wait to taste on their soup. The soup that definately comes to my liking, its a bit more strong in herbs taste that I have always like, and the soup is not too watery. Can just taste out that they use alot of pork ribs to cook along as the soup taste sweet too.

Best of all, the soup can be refill, and I had 4 bowls of the soup~

bkt (6)

One of my favourite that I would not really miss is pig’s spare part. ‘Intestine and Stomach’ @ RM 8 as I find it cheaply price with the generous amount of spare part that they gave me. I love the intestine, as its been stuff into multi layer style, just nice to chew and its wash till clean that do not have those weird taste.

bkt (7)

Claypot Big Bone @ RM 18, cook till the meat is soft and dip into my garlic chili with thick soy sauce is just perfect.

bkt (8)

Vegetable in Garlic Sauce @ RM 7

bkt (9)

Besides serving Bak Kut teh, they do have something special in da house with some of their dish are own creation and we try out their Apple Chicken which is something that I have never tried out before, deep fried first then shower with their own homemade apple sauce. Taste pretty unique, that have the sweetness of apple and crispy on the outer layer. I would say, worth to try~

bkt (10)

I am just so jealous of you that work nearby the area, as they do have set lunch for their Bak Kut Teh just for RM 9 that served along with Rice + Bak Kut Teh + Vege + Chinese Tea. Where to find this kind of promo wor, where usually I eat myself also easily cost RM13-RM16.

Well, this shop also do have steam fish, that I accidentally deleted that picture in my camera, which comes in 4 flavours, I did try out their garlic ginger steam fish, that I like how they did their own mixture and strong in garlic taste and ginger taste.

This place had add into my list of bak kut teh hunting place, and I would say, worth recommending to try out if you love those kind of soup base, a bit stronger in herbal taste, soup is also a bit thicker. Recommended place~

Remark: The dish have 3 sizes to choose from, pricing above is base on our order as some is medium, some is small.
