Last weekend I had a mission to go get some feeder shrimps from an aquarium shop to serve as some sort of living filter cleaner for the newly christened water planter/pond filter for our garden. After that mission was completed, it was of course, time for breakfast.

I went around Klang town a bit and ended up at the food court right across the road from Sei Ngan Chai BKT and the “Hilton” wantan mee place looking for something to eat, and this is when I realised I should give this char kuih teow stall a try, mainly just by looking at how many trays of eggs they have right next to the wok.

I took a seat next to the stall and ordered a plate without any specific instructions. About 20 odd minutes later, the plate of char kuih teow arrived, and it looked pretty legit I must say. There’s chives, bean sprouts, cockles, prawns, egg, and properly fried kuih teow that’s ever so slightly charred on certain pieces, indicative of good wok-hei.

And yep, this is one char kuih teow worth eating if you’re tired of bak kut teh at Klang. The banner outside says “Jalan Batai” char kuih teow, which would suggest that perhaps it was from Seng Lee kopitiam which has since closed down after the revamp of the whole area. I did not ask the proprietor, but this version certainly tastes as good.

Discuss : KY eats – Char Kuih Teow (Jalan Batai) at Klang

  1. gosh … so this means everyone who loves the batai ckt now have to travel to klang issit … wonder what’s the background behind why they chose to go to klang, instead of, say, sri petaling 😀

    • Sean: unfortunately sri petaling isn’t the center of Klang Valley, there’s a reason Klang Valley starts with Klang!

  2. immature 2.0

    Aiyoh, ckt so small wan. Uncle should add some shrimps from aquarium shop to the dish
    hehehehehehehehheheheh

  3. Yum yum. Buen provecho!

  4. One plate not enough leh….so small! 😉 Huh, got Sei Ngan Chai BKT? I only know Sei Ngan Chai roast duck….hehe! 😉

  5. Looks good, can’t go wrong with prawns.

  6. KY, that one dish I got to make or get for it so delis. Glad you still into fish pond. It so peaceful when having one and would like one but cats is so into things. MoMo look at my fish tank and stare at fishes and thinking sashimi. That fishes to stay at one side of fish tank from her.

  7. KY, this is the original Jalan Batai ckt. The lady at the wok is the daughter of the original proprietor who was already at the wok of the original stall before they moved. The uncle still comes out to fry sometimes.
