For those who stays outside of Klang and Shah Alam, Klang seems like a destination that seems to be quite.. far. However, there are two sides of Klang, before and after the Klang River, for destination before the river, it is actually just 15 minutes from Subang, so if you were to drive to places such as Medan Selera 128, it doesn’t really require planning ahead for 3 weeks and getting visa approved by your home minister.

And the best part is, you can find some unique dishes not easily found in other parts of Greater KL.

For example, one of these unique dishes is Hailam Rice, as offered by one of the stalls located at the rear part of Medan Selera 128.

Yeap, you read it right, Hailam rice, and not Hailam chicken rice.

Hailam rice turns out to be a dish consists of the following different ingredients:

  • braised 3-layer pork
  • hard boiled egg
  • braised tofu skin
  • pork blood + intestine in soup
  • rice
  • sticky curry sauce

The braised meat/egg/tofu skin side is quite a familiar taste that you’ll be able to find at any good teow chew porridge shop, and the intestine + pork blood soup not too different from a good pork stomach soup. Both these dishes were executed quite on point at this particular stall, with proper seasoning, and pork cuts that was perfect and well cooked.

The sticky curry sauce though, was something quite unique, it’s almost like a cross between Japanese curry and Loh Mee’s “loh” soup, something that I haven’t really acquired the taste on just yet. If you’re new to this dish like me, I’d suggest asking for this sauce to be served separately and pace it out. Good thing is, their sambal is hot and really adds to the whole experience.

For RM 10, this was a rather sumptuous and satisfying meal, and it won’t be the last time I order a serving of Hailam Rice.

Discuss : KY eats – Hailam Rice at Medan Selera 128, Klang

  1. Love the stewed pork belly…and stewed eggs are always my weakness.

  2. eh, i’m half hainanese, and i think i’ve never had hailam rice before. must ask my aunts! πŸ˜€

  3. Wow my childhood food… perhap you should try the one in emporium makan klang.. they start at 5am and by 10.30am is sold out… everytime i go back to klang i will go there.

  4. woah never knew got such thing. will go n try next round

  5. Now that you’ve described what’s hailam rice…I’m sure I’ve not had it before…maybe separately. The stewed pork, eggs & tofu is something I eat at a Teochew porridge shop. The soup is like one of those chee chap tong….but the sticky curry sauce, that I’ve not seen before. Could the sticky consistency of the curry sauce be the result of a cornflour slurry? πŸ˜‰ I think I may like some components of this dish but not all of it.

    • eatwhateatwhere: haha yah, I still have reservation about that curry sauce myself too, cornflour slurry is probably right.

  6. Oh, I don’t like starchy food/sauce like that >_<

  7. Haa haa. Sure beats having to get a visa πŸ˜‰

  8. This is one of the best chicken recipes ever. It’s very tasteful and beautiful to play. Thanks for the recipe.

  9. Just wanted to say thanks for this recipe. I enjoy the firecracker chicken and having just attempted this for the first time, I have to say it tastes 99% the same! Would have never been able to figure out how to make it myself!

  10. This was SO delicious!! I followed your exact recipe and I don’t think it was too thick at all. It was nice and creamy and the flavors were great! My husband ate two bowlfuls and wanted more. We had plenty for leftovers. Thanks–this is a keeper.
