For many, Klang is synonymous with bak kut teh, and while that is obviously a true statement, this part of the most populous area in our beloved country has more to offer if you look a little closer.
A couple weeks ago, we went over to San Sin Kopitiam for one of these other hidden gems in Klang.
Our destination was San Sin Kopitiam, a stone’s throw away from Law Tian kopitiam and just a couple minutes from the famous Boston Restaurant. The kopitiam is home to quite a few different stalls offering bak kut teh, loh bak, grilled fish, and more. Our target was this stall with an old couple offering steam fish noodle, steam lala, and kangkung cuttle fish. We ordered the first two dishes.
These dishes are made fresh so it took a little while to be served. Steamed fish noodle is a shallow pot with meehun, a whole pomfret, some meat balls, salted vege, tomato, and sour plum in soup. A deliciously healthy meal for sharing, and especially perfect for a cold evening.
There’s also something about this part of Klang with their steam lala. Packed with fresh ginger, cili padi, and garlic oil, their version of lala is competent and certainly serve as a good companion dish to the meehun.
If you want a good, light meal, this is a great option.
