Restoran Bubur Goreng
Yes, there’s more to Klang than bak kut teh (although pork in hearty, comforting pots of herbal broth will always be an iconic Klang dish worth the one-hour KTM ride from KL Sentral). The intriguing fried porridge at the port town’s Taman Berkeley isn’t your usual boring white glop; instead, sautéed dried shredded squid and shrimp (sourced from Sekinchan) give the Teochew dish a rich flavour, golden pork cracklings sprinkled on top provide some crunch, and yam cubes and yao char kuey add texture to the silky porridge broth. The wok hei (from the porridge being fried and tossed) along with an extra splash of soy sauce for colour and taste result in porridge you’d want to have even if you aren’t recovering from a bout of flu.
