Klang , the quaint but underperforming (sometimes embarrassing, remember Zak the satayman ?) Port Town in Selangor does have its fair share of culinary surprises.
It is not restricted to Pandamaran/Telok Gong Chinese Seafood nor the other charismatic gastronomical genius called Bak Kut Teh.
Situated right next door to opulent (but lack lustre) Islamic City Shah Alam, the xtrasensory aroma of the redoubtable Chinese culinary powerhouse will invariably raise many cynical eyebrows from envying yonder. So as usual the culinary wonders of Klang will again be bypassed Visit Malaysia Year 2007 or not.
So it is left to that saving grace mildmannered Indian fried noodle hanging on ...
.... between the ubiquitous illegal satay stalls to the front, sides and centres......
....and da troublesome BKT hotshots east & west....
to provide some diversionary timely tummy relief.
OK then Little India here we come !
This is the epicentre of Klang's Little India, where shops are owned and operated by mostly the second generation Indians whose forefathers first worked in the railways and ports nearby. The roads carry the names of 'Kelana' this and that. ( but Where's Samy and Maniam, I wonder ? ).
Look out 4 this Restaurant Baratha in Jln Mahkota Kelana.
Aaah ..... the stinging smell of fascinating spicy India, in Malaysia.
Da fried mee takeaway for the rich and famous who it is claimed air fly the brown paper packets from this humble kitchen by the frozen dozens all the way to their aspiring MBA, PhD sons and daughters in London, Paris and Amsterdam courtesy now MAS ( soon Airasia ) . Throw mix into giant very blacky pan...looks simple, doesn't it ?
Even more easy to fry, or is it ?
