We Share Our Favorite Eating Spots In Klang Valley, Not ALL
This is just a very small selection of eating spots on our list of must try
Malaysians are food lovers, from roadside stalls to fine dining establishments. The same person having a meal at a roadside stall in the morning, might have their dinner in a gourmet restaurant the same day.
This is how diverse our food culture is and being a multi-racial nation with incoming global culinary influences in the last decade, we are spoilt for choice.
Yes, there are just too many choices and not all are value for money or even worth half their asking price. You will find ‘home cooks’ suddenly becoming ‘chefs’ and failing after a year or so and then there are some others who think they can run ‘business’ and they also fail after a year.
Meanwhile, we have decided to share with you 4 food locations. If you live in Klang Valley then it will be easy to try them soon (depends on your dietary and religious restrictions), and if not, when you visit Klang Valley next you can decide.
First we have Rasa Viet located in Damansara Kim. Its been here for a few years and offers authentic Vietnamese meals at reasonable prices. This Halal restaurant is small and the tables will be full at meal times. Go early to get a table.
Next we have our pick for the best Yong Tau Foo and it is located in Petaling Jaya Old Town right opposite the wet market. Its all fish paste based and made in-house. Just go to the back of the Majestic restaurant and you can see two ladies sitting and filling up the items. The chili is super spicy and will give you a ‘kick’ in your mouth. Prices are reasonable and the coffee served is very good.
Now if you like Wan Tan Mee, you must take a drive to the heart of Pudu, just a short distance from the old Pudu Jail (now Lalaport mall) and it’s a ‘messy, crowded walkway, but the Want Tan Mee and dumplings on offer will be worth the effort.
Looking for possibly the best Fried Chicken (please do not drown it in any sauce) in town, you must try Table & Apron in Damansara Kim. Parking is an issue, but worth the effort as the rest of the meals, like the Beef Ragu and the deserts are all super yummy.

Finding all the above locations will be easy with the Proton X50 navigation system and with 5 adults on board we had no complaints from our passengers as rear seat comfort and legroom was good for the three adults in the rear.
The Proton X50 is also easy to park on side streets and tight narrow lanes as the park assist camera offers a number of views to get in and out of tight spaces.
What about fuel consumption? Well, with a spirited 1.5L turbocharged engine, this Crossover sips fuel in city traffic and delivers decent highway speed with its 255Nm of torque coming in at a low 1,500 rpm.
