As someone who has been staying in Kepong for most of my working life, it is my duty to introduce you, in my opinion, some of the best Kepong food stalls and restaurants to eat at.
There are easily thousands of satay stalls in Klang Valley. It's impossible to try each and every one of them but here's a list to help you get started on a satay adventure. All of the featured eateries are halal. Also, there are many famous satay stalls/restaurants that I have been to, but they are not included due to drop in quality recently.
Wantan Mee is a comfort food that you can eat at anytime of the day. In Klang Valley, it's tossed in a mix of dark soy sauce, sesame oil and lard then topped with slices of caramelized char siew. Hong Kong style wanton noodle puts more emphasis on the quality of the noodle and wontons. Here are some of the best restaurants and hawker stalls in KL and PJ where you can get the best Hong Kong style Wantan Mee.
Here are six tried and tested Char Koay Teow stalls located in KL and PJ to satisfy your fix. For Malays, Char Koay Teow usually means the lightly fried version in gravy, in which the sauce plays a more important role than 'wok hei'. High quality and fresh ingredients aside, every hawker has their own unique blend of soy sauce that distinguishes their Char Koay Teow from the rest.
