Where can you find a good Penang food in Klang Valley? This is the question I got quite frequently. Previously I would give them answer, Restaurant O & S located at PJ Taman Paramount. But one thing you know that to eat good food, you need to face the traffic jam, parking, toll and time just to get a fix. For those who are staying in Shah Alam, here’s a good news. Now you no need to go so far and can get a good Penang food located within Kota Kemuning.
The place were operated by authentic Penang people and all the best of all stars is in a single place.

Wok Hei is the main key point to churn out a good plate of char koey teow!

This Loh Mee are Penang authentic and is not the KL LAM MEE. Here the thin yellow noodle and beehoon is used. KL ones are using hokkien mee thick noodle. The starch are cooked with chicken feet and pork. Then it is paired with cooked chili and raw garlic mix.

Shrimp paste chee cheong fun are hard to find in KL. Like I said only O&S and here got it. The shrimp paste were imported from Penang weekly. There are 2 types of CCF where you either open the rice roll noodle so that it is easy to absorb the sauce or you leave it in the roll form.

Pork coagulated blood, tofu puff, squids, prawns, cockles and mint leaved drenched in a pot of prawn based soup then mix with cook chilli is one of the Penang famous hawker food known as curry mee. This is the nyonya type where the soup color are white. In Penang most were brown colored and use a lots of coconut milk.
Duck Meat Koey Teow Soup RM5.50
Koey teow soup in Penang is famous for known as sick people’s food. Whenever you feel sick, you will look for koey teow soup vs KL people look for teowchew porridge. This duck meat koey teow soup are cooked clear and no MSG added. It is serve with pork lard, fish cake, duck meats and fish ball. If you are real Penang people, you will request for red chilli and put it in the soup.
Asam Laksa RM5.50
A must to try if you are asam laksa lover. The fish are still in one piece rather than crushed version like the one in the famous Air Itam market version. This one you can taste the real soup base flavor. At the same time you can see what fish are used to cook the asam laksa. As usual Penang authentic asam laksa come with plenty of shrimp paste. This is not for dipping. Stir and mix it into the soup and start eating. That’s the right way to enjoy it.
Lam Mee RM5.50
Clear prawn soup with shredded eggs, prawns and lards called lam mee? This is the Penang nyonya style. If only I can get the sambal belacan in KL then pair it with this plate of noodle will be awesome. The prawn chicken soup based noodle are simple yet tasty.
Fruits Rojak RM4.00
The sauce is available for sale. RM7 a bottle for the sauce only where you can make your own fruits salad at home. This is the sweet type of shrimp paste compared to the one used in asam laksa and chee cheong fun.
Tee Nya Kuih RM3.50 per tub
This is a rare item in KL. In Penang, this also very hard to find. This is a cold dessert where the rice cake are chilled then dipped in brown sugar. It is the best cold snack in front of TV. This only available in the weekend. You can book or order them in bulk too.
