Youmiqi

First up in no particular order we have Youmiqi Restaurant located in Jalan Klang Lama (second branch in Jln Yap Kwan Seng). Direct translation of its name to english actually means ‘Have Rice Scent ‘ (broken down into You= Have, Mi = Rice Grain, Qi = scent). Unlike many other chinese restaurants out there, Youmiqi serves dishes which are originated from Shun De, China, of which most (we guarantee) are rare and unheard of! Not only the dishes are special, most of the dishes taste pretty good too. Must try items include their signature seafood stew and Golden Nestum bun.

Tips: Parking is limited if you’re heading to Youmiqi @ Yap Kwan Seng, but there is an open carpark space available opposite the restaurant.

Things to Expect: Good food but perhaps certain dishes are very much an acquired taste. You just have to pick it right!

Price: RM500

Peng Heong Hakka Paikut Restaurant

Representing Klang community is Restaurant Peng Heong Hakka Paikut .There are plenty of good chinese restaurants within Klang area but the reason why Peng Heong stood out as our pick this round is their affordable price tag. A typical dish at Peng Heong costs between RM5-8 per plate (yes, no joke) , based on country’s current inflation rate we’re still wondering how the owner of Peng Heong makes profit from it. Then again, we ain’t complaining ! Not only it’s dirt cheap, Peng Heong’s food is packed with great flavours and reasonable portion too. Definitely a steal for those of you who doesn’t wish to burn a hole in your wallet this CNY. (Giving out red packets sure ain’t easy *pats shoulder*)

Tips: The place can be rather hot on certain days and parking may be difficult . Book early to avoid disappointments.

Things to Expect: Cheap..cheap.. cheap food!

Price: RM200

Lau Heong Seafood

Sentul isn’t exactly an area for foodies to explore (probably not yet) but Lau Heong Seafood Restaurant has proved otherwise. Serving seafood as their specialty, one must not leave without trying their Curry Fish Head and Sotong on Hot Plate of which its sauce is of a secret concoction created mostly using coconut milk by its owner. Both equally satisfying and oozing with strong flavours, rather than the typical CNY 8 course set menu, why not indulge your tummy on seafood instead?

Tips: You might want to reserve early as the seats get filled up pretty quickly.

Things to Expect: Great pricing on its dishes and CNY menu!

Price: RM200

Pik Wah restaurant has been around since the 70’s. It’s has also been a place for famous actors, actress, politicians and businessmen to meet and dine. Throughout the years, they have been shifting around several places, and after sometime, they have finally settle down right behind the Stadium Negara, below the MABA house. The restaurant features dishes you cannot find anywhere else along with great depth of flavours and textures. Fish as fresh as if they were just caught and sauces that tingles around your tastebuds. Pik Wah has been well received by people of elder generation. Hence, we believe that it deserves a spot here, to allow young working adults to try it out as well!
