For those who may not be familiar with chicken rice balls, it is basically chicken rice that is slightly stickier rolled up in balls, giving it a unique texture when consumed with the meat dishes.
Yew Pin Chicken Rice is situated along Jalan Meru by Station Jalan Meru of LRT3, a stone’s throw away from Klang Parade. Parking is usually an uncomplicated exercise as this isn’t a very busy area of Klang.
The interior is simple, clean, and thankfully, air conditioned for your comfort.
Choices of meat here are chicken, roast pork, or chasiu (bbq pork) to go with rice that’s served in rice balls, or the usual style.
The steamed chicken here is as competent as any in Klang, but the star would be their roast pork, with crispy skin, proper amount of fat vs meat layering and just the right aroma of 5 spice. The chasiu is pretty middle of the road, I’ll always go to Spring Golden for that instead.
Together with those rice ball and their generous (basically unlimited) amount of minced ginger and spicy home-made chili sauce, lunch was always a very satisfying affair for us there.
Try it! Klang isn’t only about bak kut teh.
