Ever since we had Kayden around, we had kept our Saturday dinner venue close to Kepong, or at least at some shopping malls. Last Saturday, we were a bit adventurous as we went all the way to Klang to have dinner with May’s parents’ new Avanza.
Located at the edge of Klang town, this place is famous for it’s steamed fish. I used to hate coming here because of the long journey as well as the way they steamed their fish (which I will explain later) but I have grown to accept it now. We left Kepong about 515PM and reached this place around 6PM.
Klang people sure eat their dinner early. By 630PM, the place is packed!
The shop have a small corner that displayed some Siew Lap for the day. Some of the norms are Char Siew, Siew Yuk and Roast Duck.
The first dish that we ordered is a plate of Char Siew and Siew Yuk. It was ok where it is roasted nicely without a tinge of over roasting.
Seong Tong Yin Choy (or it’s called Amarath Greens?), something that I avoided because of the high level of purines. It’s cooked with a thick broth, along with garlic, century egg, small anchovies and wolfberries.
Remember earlier that I used to hate to come to this place, well it’s because of this. Ginger Steamed Fish Head, which previously is not really something that I like to eat. However, over the years, I’ve grew to like it. The Sek Pan (garoupa) is very fresh and the serving is pretty huge! This is only half of the head that we are ordering. The ginger taste is fresh and I read that the famed Bentong Ginger is used.
The Assam Steamed Fish taste even better. The sauce is not too sour and balance well with the freshly steamed fish. If you are eating rice, beware as you might be able to eat 3-4 bowls of rice with its sauce.
Kayden also joining the fun, eating by himself.
Here’s him smiling for the camera. He’s very well behave during the whole trip as well as during dinner time, so now we are more confident of bringing him out for dinner.
Dinner was great and the is only RM100.80, which I consider pretty fair for the freshness and the sizes of the fish. I will definitely be here again because looking at the Assam Steamed is already making my saliva drool!

As I said, be here early to avoid waiting as the Klang crowd will normally by here by 6PM.
After dinner, we head over to Empire Subang to walk around. It’s quite a nice mall to walk around, and there are plenty of eateries there too. Will try some the next time I pay a visit.
Before I end this post, here’s Kayden in a convertible. Currently, he seems to have liking to cars and Thomas the train. Well I guess boys will be boys!
