We went to Pandamaran, Klang to get Miharu’s City service at a Honda specialist shop here, as we had yet to eat anything for the day, we decided to venture out to shops nearby for a quick makan while waiting for the car to be worked at.

Nearby, hidden at Jalan Sentosa behind some houses and shops is a corner shop, Restoran Thong Wei selling bak kut teh. I asked the mechanic how’s the bkt there and he said, its not bad, can give it a try.

As we are approaching the shop, I noticed that the cook and I assume is the lady boss looks like a Thai lady, maybe she is Thai-Chinese I supposed. Even at the praying altar I do see Thai relevance.

Anyhow, this shop is quite popular and mainly locals, plus the prices are still friend too. If you are alone, you can order a bowl instead, as its cheaper at RM5.80 for small and RM6.80 for big. Otherwise you can go for claypot at RM8.80 per head. Rice is 80 cents for big and 40 cents for small.

We ordered 1 1/2 heads for claypot (small bone with some internal mixed) as there are 2 of us, with a bowl of yoo tiao plus 2 rices. The rice are topped with fried shallots the way I like it.

I would rate the soup as average, this is not the heavy type nor the light type but in between in terms of thickness and taste. But what is really nice is the meat, it looks fatty but when you take it, its quite alright.

The meat are tender as the small bone part always is but not too hard and dry. The skin with its layer of fats looks heavy, but when you actually take it, its smooth and nice to eat (well I did remove the access fats, but there are still quite a bit of the skin).

Surprisingly the bkt here turns out better than I expect and we had a decent brunch thanks to it.

Coconut Flower in Teluk Gong used to be one of my number one favourite seafood place to go many years back because of the good food and cheap prices… over the years price have slowly gone up and was getting too crowded to go…

In recent years after settling down in Shah Alam, KC seems to like to go there and much often he would dragged me along with his happy family for lunch there on weekends. Weekend lunch time crowd seems to be managable, I am not sure if its still crowded at night.

Anyhow, one fine Saturday afternoon, a bunch of itchy backside gang decided to go to Teluk Gong for seafood… there are like 10+2 of us… we ordered my all time favourite “kum heong har kao” (dry chili mantis prawns), xo sauce fried crabs (1kg), sweet & sour crabs (1kg), fried buns for the crabs, “seong tong lala” (clams), “lala meehoon” (clams fried vermicelli), “oo chen” (oysters omelette), teow chew steam fish, some vegetables and of course some “yeh fah chew” (coconut wine) and a bottle of stout as mixer.

The appetizer was interesting, instead of the common peanuts, they gave this mamee like fried dry noodles which is quite nice. The har kao is good as usual with the lala meehoon, xo crabs is very nice and fried buns with crab sauce is cool too.

The food standard is still ok here but prices are still not as good as what it used to be. Bill came up to about 20 plus per person but it still an attractive weekend place for a lazy seafood outing plus you always get free dessert at the end ;).

On the main road (Jalan Sg Jati) in Taman Sentosa Klang, there’s a corner shop with red signboard that is famous for its bak kut teh, they also have the dry version here. Its the cornershop on Lorong Bendehara 20B.

They serve the normal soup based bak kut teh as well as the dry bak kut teh (fried with dried chilies, dried cuttlefish and lady fingers in dark soya sauce). I ordered 1 portion of the dry one and 1 portion of the soup with a bowl of yau char kueh.

The soup one is quite good, the soup is thick but not too salty and tasty. They are also very generous with the soup where they will bring a big mug and fill until you tell them to stop.

I find the dry portion to be very small and not enough dried cuttlefish, so taste wise is a bit on the light side. I still prefer the dry bkt at soon seng behind Klang Parade instead ;).

I bumped into Ah Fai, my friend from Kelantan (he came all the way with his gf’s family in Kuchai Lama to eat here) at Yip Weng to my surpise and since I have not been able to meet up with him much, I belanja him as well. The total from my table of 2 and his table of 5 adds up to RM111.00.
