17 Famous Food In Klang

1. Chong Kok Kopitiam

With a rich heritage spanning 81 years, Chong Kok Kopitiam started off sharing the space with Chong Kok Hotel and a restaurant in a three-story building.

As the hotel business slowed down, the proprietor re-pivoted to focus on its profiteering kopitiam business. Currently helmed by third-generation owner Foo Cher Ming, this iconic kopitiam retains all the luster and winning recipes of the olden days.

Their key selling point is non-other than their kaya butter toasts, where the bread is painstakingly grilled over a hot charcoal stove. Topping this childhood favorite is generous dollops of novelty kaya caramelized over charcoal, and rich swathes of butter.

Other crowd-pullers include their half-boiled eggs, packed nasi lemak, local kuih, and the sweetened coffee served in nostalgic patterned ceramic cups. A quick update to their menu sees the introduction of newer desserts like the scrumptious blueberry cake.
