Klang will always be associated with bak kut teh for most people, and while that is certainly true since the region has something like 300-500 bak kut teh restaurants, there’s another hidden gem that most may not know about – them fried chicken!
After I posted about Yummy fried chicken located at Bandar Puteri Klang on social media, I was made aware of this Klang Jaya Fried Chicken by quite a few people who are from Klang and are familiar with this whole fried chicken scene, without hesitation, I knew we were going to have to check it out.
As it turned out, Klang Jaya fried chicken used to be a stall by the roadside, but has since moved to occupy a shop lot by itself several months back. Google map may still have the old address in the database but the one below on Jalan Selampit 21 would be the right one.
While most yoyo ice and fried chicken places like Nijia opens operates mainly on day time, Klang Jaya fried chicken caters for dinner and supper crowds. We got there by 6:30 or so and started picking our poisons right after checking in our location thanks to Covid measures.
Fried chicken is priced at RM 3.60 per piece, additionally, they also offer fried meehun and nasi lemak (RM 1.60), as well as fried fish ball, red bean soup, and a limited choice of drinks (see menu below).
I had thigh and drumsticks here, and these fried chicken were served piping hot, with crispy skin and rather juicy meat. They were super delicious, and though I thought the extra cut on the chicken thigh sorta made the meat slightly less juicy, it wasn’t a deal breaker at all. Meehun goreng here was pretty good especially with the curry sauce, with nasi lemak presented as a decent alternative too.
As for those fried fish ball and other items on skewers.. I’ll give them a miss next time.
Overall, it was a very satisfying meal indeed, and definitely somewhere I’d be looking forward to returning.
