Restoran Kuang Fong 冠凤小食馆 @ Klang

After playing Santa, we went to grab lunch at a place highly recommended by the brother, Restoran Kuang Fong 冠凤小食馆.

This restaurant is located along Jalan Meru in Klang. It is a typical Chinese style dai chao 大炒 place, a place where you can order a wide variety of dishes instead of just a select few.

We came here specifically because the brother discovered that this restaurant serves one type of food not native to Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. This one:

Hainanese Chicken Rice Balls! Steamed rice compacted into balls. This is something that we previously thought is only available in Malacca. Well, not anymore. And the rice balls here are big! I think they really did use one full bowl of rice to make one rice ball like how it was supposed to be made originally, unlike the ever shrinking Malacca version.

My mom is from Malacca, so we came here specifically for this dish. We even had some Hainanese white chicken to go with the rice balls.

But actually, this restaurant is not famous for the rice balls. I don’t really know if they are famous or not, to be honest. We ordered a few other dishes to sample. Actually, the brother did the ordering, I have no idea what’s what. My job was just to stuff everything into my mouth 😀 .

Some noodles dish cooked in thick broth.

Braised pork knuckles

Stir fried bok choy

All the dishes were rather decent. I wouldn’t complain if I have to come again. But I probably won’t rush to come, because it is so far from my home.

Anyway, if you are interested to sample some chicken rice balls without going all the way to Malacca, here’s the address, you can get to this place using Waze and Garmin.

  1. it has been almost 6 years since i last had chicken rice ball. Nothing fancy, and that was my one and only time i had chicken rice ball. In Klang, i rather prefer BKT…After all that is what they are famous for 😉

  2. I have been to some restaurants in Klang and the food is not bad. Like you, it is too far for me. Of all the dishes up there, I like the white chicken and the braised pork knuckles 🙂 So will you be home again for new year?

  3. Never liked chicken rice balls…they’re usually mushy, rather stick to plain chicken rice. If the noodles needed vinegar, then I think it must be “lor mee” (usually done with the thick yellow noodles here like in Fried Hokkien Mee). Hey, the stir fried bok choy is not as neatly arranged as your Mom’s one the other day…kekeke :D!!

    • Yeah! I guess you are right, it does taste slightly like lor mee, but the noodles used is different. And I think you had Malacca rice balls, their quality is deteriorating year over year. Mom remarked the ones we had in Klang is more like how it was 30 years ago.
      LOL! Let me mention to my mom that there’s some readers praising her vegetable arranging skill 😀 .

  4. These balls seem to be catching on elsewhere outside of Melaka – we’ve one place here too. Nothing to shout about – it’s just chicken rice rolled/squeezed into balls…and good or not, that will depend on the rice. Oooooo…braised pork knuckles!!! <3 <3 <3

    • It’s more the nostalgic properties. Just like most of us outside Sarawak wouldn’t think kacang mah to be something to shout about LOL! 😀

  5. Sekali pandang, I love that white cut steamed chicken and that banjir gravy wat tan hor.. People who knows me already know I love banjir gravy stuffs.. Like wat ran hor or eggy gravy tofu minced meat those sorts..

    • That one doesn’t taste like wat tan hor at all, you need to add some vinegar to it to make it more tasty. I think it is similar to Penang’s mee sua kor (rice vermicelli cooked until disintegrated) but using different noodles.

  6. Klang is definitely very (very I mean) far from my place, like you, I won’t probably rush there just for makan.. though the “some noodles dish cooked in thick broth” seems to look good to me.. 🙂

  7. Oh, I did not know that it is supposed to be one bowl of rice = 1 rice ball. I thought 1 rice ball should be small enough to be eaten in one mouthful.

    I ate this chicken rice ball 6 years ago at MyKitchen Restaurant at Sunway Mas Commercial Centre near Aman Suria, Taman Mayang, Taman Megah, PJ area. Then only I ate it in Malacca. I am not sure whether this MyKitchen is still around or not so if your mother has a craving for chicken rice balls, no need to go so far to klang is the PJ restaurant is still around.

    Hahaha, I like how you put it that your job is to eat only. Have a safe drive back to Penang! I am sure your mother will miss you accompanying her to the market when you go back to Penang. 🙁

    • Hmm, I’m not really familiar with that place too.. maybe the brother knows it..
      You are trying to guilt trip me about going back to work 😐
