So here are 5 places the people from Tourism Selangor feels that we should not miss out on, and yes, once I have tried out their food offerings, I definitely seconded their opinion, and so this is written to share with you, my fellow readers, on 5 places to eat in Klang you really should not miss, so you should know where to head to when you are in Klang next……
Lontong Klang at the Emporium Makan, Klang Royal City Town
One very significant food spot in Klang city would be at the food emporium or “Emporium Makan”, which is located in the middle of the city, opposite of Pasar Jawa and next to Jambatan Kota.
One of the most popular stall is “Lontong Klang” that serves up lontong with tempe, sambal sotong, hard boiled egg, meat patty/bergedil including some other ingredients in a coconut milk gravy…The price is also very affordable which is RM5.00 for normal Lontong … and it was just so yummy…….I need more…
You can also find some pretty delicious nasi lemak or rice to wednesday/ nasi kerabu sold, and there is also the highly recommended rojak…
Address – Emporium Makan, 1A, Jalan Harper, Klang
Chong Kok Kopitiam, Klang Royal City Town
Chong Kok Kopitiam is pretty interesting as they actually have servers of different races. It is well known for its nasi lemak sambal sotong, Roti Goyang which is basically toast bread and soft boiled eggs that shake like jelly with a choice of normal bread, wholemeal bread, bun, normal egg, kampong chicken egg, and the coffee.
It is said that the coffee beans here are roasted with butter. There are plenty of other food offerings as well from chee cheong fun and so on…
