Tag / curry chicken pao

Sometimes last year, I wrote an entry about curry chicken pao in USJ 4’s New Apollos kopitiam. Well, today we talk about the supplier of those pao – Restoran Klang Food Centre at Klang.

The restaurant is located at Taman Intan, the first commercial center just after the Klang toll (Sungai Rasau) and NKVE intersection on federal highway. The area also houses some popular bak kut teh places such as Teluk Pulai BKT and Weng Heong BKT.

There’s over a dozen different pao available here, ranging from the usual chicken, kaya, big pao, char siew, red bean, lin yong, and so forth, they also have yam and pork, curry chicken pao, and my personal favorite – mui choi pao.

The pao here are all hand-made on location, so you’re getting pretty much the freshest pao you can get. They also sell these dumplings in frozen form should you want to bring them home and steam them up for breakfast at your leisure.

Other than pao, Restoran Klang Food Centre also serves bak chang, lo mai kai, yam puff, sesame balls, and yam cakes as well. The bak chang tastes pretty good, but I thought the yam cake was actually sub-par.

If you’re up for some traditional eat-from-your-hand fresh paos, check this place out.

After I posted the review on the Kuih Teow Soup stall at New Apollos kopitiam at USJ 4, one reader, Ley, commented that I should give the curry chicken pao a try, and on the very next visit, I did just that.

According to Ley, the curry chicken pao is the famous version from Klang with handmade bun.

The stall in fact, offers more than just curry chicken pao, there are also mantau, lor mai kai, lin yong, custard corn, kaya, peanut, vegetable, charsiu, red bean, sang yok, mui choi, black pepper, yam & pork, and big pao. Quite a selection.

The curry chicken pao was huge, not any smaller than a typical big pao that I’m used to. Interestingly, to prevent the curry chicken from making the bun soggy, an aluminium bowl thingy is embedded within to contain the ingredients. So the way to eat this is not exactly you would with typical pao, instead, a pair of chopsticks is provided and it had the feel of having mantao with some awesome curry chicken, I find myself enjoying it!

So if you want a pao that’s out of the ordinary, this is a place to check out, thanks Ley!
