Hing Ket Grill House (庆吉烧烤海鲜屋) at Kampung Jawa, Klang

Leave a Comment
Hing Ket Grill House (庆吉烧烤海鲜屋) is a Klang Chinese restaurant converted from a house that specializes in grilled meat and seafood. Located in the Kampung Jawa, Klang, Hing Ket restaurant is just around 30 minutes drive from Petaling Jaya. Since today is a pubic holiday and we are looking for nice food, we decided to drive to Hing Ket Grill House to try their food.  Our aim is to try their fresh grilled crab.  According to the bloggers and reviews, the grill lamb here is a must try as well as other grilled seafood and meat such as crab, squids and prawns.

We are lucky as today's traffic is smooth and we reached before 6 pm.  There is already a family eating here.  It is going to be full house especially during holiday so better call to make reservation and also order your crabs or other food first to avoid disappointment.

You can easily spot the Hing Ket Grill House sign board on the roadside.  We used Waze to come here and the coordinate in Waze for this restaurant is quite accurate.  It took us around 30 minutes to reach this place from Petaling Jaya as there is no traffic jam.  If the food is nice, no matter how far also we will drive to eat.

Hing Ket restaurant seems like a conversion from a residential house with the front side extended to become a grilling place.  It looks new and clean, maybe just renovated not long time ago.  Hing Ket Grill House is actually a family business started in the 1980s by a Mr Foo family.

Very crunchy fresh yao mak vegetable at RM 10.  Remember to order some green vegetables to balance your meal.  We actually ordered fu yu yau mak but it comes without the fu yu.  But never mind as we are so hungry.

Hing Ket Grill House at Kampung Jawa, Klang
To replace rice, we ordered lala fried mee hoon.  Can you see the lala?  At first I thought they serve the wrong order but actually the lala shell is removed.  Very nice to complement our grilled food coming up next.  This lala mee hoon is only RM 8.

Hing Ket Grill House at Kampung Jawa, Klang
The generous amount of chili sauce and the mint sauce.  The chili sauce is perfect to go with the grilled stingray (pari) and lala fried mee hoon while the mint sauce is perfect for the grilled lamb, of course.

Even though our aim is to try the grilled crab, but I cannot refrain myself from ordering the grilled lamb after reading all the bloggers' review of the grilled lamb.  The grilled lamb served with cucumber and sweet pineapple is super delicious and the tender meat is thick and juicy.  Be warned, one bite and you might not be able to stop from eating the whole plate.  This is one person portion size as laupoh does not like lamb.  This grilled lamb of Hing Ket Grill House is RM 12 at RM 8.50 per 100 grams.

The grilled stingray fish (ikan pari), perfectly grilled and best to eat with the sour lime (limau) and the spicy chili sauce.  RM 20 for this two pieces of grilled stingray (ikan pari).

We ordered one large crab.  The spoon is provided to illustrate the size of the crab.  The crab is very fresh and the perfectly grilled with the juicy and thick crab meat. RM 58 for this crab at RM 78 per kg.

The menu of the Hing Ket Grill House.  The medium-sized crab today is at RM 60 for 1 KG and RM 78 for large-sized.  The grilled lamb is RM 8.50 per 100 grams.

Our total bill is RM 108.50.  Definitely will come back here again to try their other grilled seafood such as the squids and the prawns.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre

Leave a Comment
Bari-Uma Ramen is located inside the Jaya Shopping Centre which is a nostalgia place for many of the residents in Petaling Jaya. It has been rebuilt into a new shopping mall and launches lately with many attracting restaurants such as this ramen shop, Bari-Uma Ramen. Bari-Uma Ramen is well known in Japan and they start to expand to other countries including Malaysia. Their aim is to let customers enjoy their authentic taste of Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen directly from Japan. As we are looking for nice food, we decided to give this ramen shop a try. According to the website, Bari-uma ramen is a super rich tonkatsu shoyu ramen using high quality soy sauce as the soup base with natural flavor of tonkatsu. The creamy soup of 
potherb, chicken foot, pork bone and other ingredients are boiled together for more than 10 hours.

Inside the Bari-Uma Ramen shop.  We came here quite early around 6 pm so not many customers yet.  The staffs are ready to roll out the bowls of ramen.  There is this glass wall on both sides of the shop so that you can see people walking around while enjoying your bowl ramen.  Another side show the old buildings of Seksyen 14.

All Bari-Uma's ramen noodles are freshly made in-house.

Some nice Japanese style decoration with bamboos inside the shop near the entrance to welcome the customers.

Noticed the Touch n Go banner.  Yes, now you can pay the bill with Touch n Go card and get 15% off.  Too bad laupoh didn't bring her Touch n Go card that day.

Spotted this Maneki-neko, which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner.

The wooden tables and chairs inside Bari-Uma Ramen restaurant with round shaped lamp gives us a nice pleasant dining experience.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
The Bariuma Spirits!  Let's see if we experienced it with our visit.  Yes, our ramen is hot.  The staff greeted us with big and cheerful voice.  Their service is also wonderful and the table and utensils are clean and shiny.

The Food (Ramen and Gyoza)

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
My bowl of Ajitama-Uma ramen, described as pork flavored shoyu soup "Ajitama" with thick-cut flamed chashu.  Ajitama actually means the flavored egg and if you do not want the egg, you can order the Bari-Uma which looks the same to me but without the egg.  Another thing I love about Bari-Uma ramen is that you can order the small sized ramen and reduce the price by RM 3.  For me, those ramen shop's noodle portion are too big such as the one at Menya Musashi Ramen @ Isetan Eat Paradise, One Utama.  However, it might not worth the price for some as it is only reduced by RM 3.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
Look at the thick-cut flamed chashu in the creamy pork soup and the perfect Ajitama (flavored egg)!

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
Close up on this thick-cut flamed chashu.  It has full aroma of barbecue and meat is juicy and tender enough for wanting to bite the next piece.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
The flavored egg (Ajitama) is also very delicious and it is worth the upgrade from Bari-Uma.  So nice that I regretted didn't enjoy it slowly but you know hard is it not to swallow the soft tasty egg when it is in your mouth.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
This is laupoh's spicy Kara-Uma ramen.  The ingredients are same, the thick-cut flamed chashu in pork flavored soup but spicy.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
We also ordered this gyoza but honestly it is a bit disappointing for me as it is not as crispy and juicy as I imagined.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
The first page of Bari-Uma menu.  Click here for larger size.  You can order your favorrite ramen with extra toppings such as Ajitama (flavoured egg), spring onions, corn, dry seaweed and bamboo shoots.  You can also choose to have light soup if the original soup is too strong taste or too creamy for you.  For me the soup is just nice.  If you love chashu very much, you can also order Chashu-Uma with 4 pieces of thick-cut flamed chashu.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
The second page of the menu for Bari-Uma Ramen.  Click here for full size.  There are a few types of gyoza such as pan-fried, boiled, teri-yaki and negi-mayo.  You can also order the flamed chashu if the one in your ramen is not enough, or you can order other food such as the flamed salmon and yakitori.  Since their flamed chashu is so nice I believe the yakitori should be nice too.  And you can also order matcha (green tea) ice cream or kurogoma (black sesame) ice cream to end your delicious bowl of ramen noodle.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip

Leave a Comment
Since we got a one day holiday on this year's Wesak Day and don't know where to go, we decided to go to Tanjung Sepat for a one day trip.  Tanjung Sepat is a fishing village and also a small town in Kuala Langat district in Selangor, Malaysia.  Since it is only one day, we couldn't visit all the places and choose just a few of them.  Here is a nice map showing most of the places in Tanjung Sepat: Map Link.  You can get the print out of this map easily in the shops at Tanjung Sepat.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Tanjung Sepat, the town with nice beach

The first place that we visited is a dragon fruit farm which is called Multi-Rich Pitaya Sdn. Bhd.  If you never see a dragon fruit or the plant before, you can come here to experience it but there is not much to see here as it is just dragon fruit plant.  If you have seen it, I would recommend to skip this place to save time for other places.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The dragon fruit plant, looks like cactus with its thorns.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The dragon fruit in the making, still in green color.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
So this is the dragon fruit flower.  Big and bright.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Spotted this grasshopper resting on don't know what tree branch.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Multi-Rich Pitaya also sells dragon fruit probiotics drinks which can help to increase the good bacteria in your stomach and improve your intestinal environment.  We didn't try this as the ice cream looks more delicious.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The dragon fruit ice cream.  Very light dragon fruit taste and not too sweet.

We didn't spend long time here and we went to find our lunch spot which is a Bak Kut Teh shop.  Restaurant Ah Hock only opens for lunch and we were almost late for our Bak Kut Teh.  We manage to call the boss and luckily they were expecting some tourists group so they still can serve us.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Restaurant Ah Hock, easily found with Waze.  There is a Chinese temple beside it but I'm not sure how many temples are there at Tanjung Sepat.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The set meals with the Bak Kut Teh for 8 persons.

The dishes of Restaurant Ah Hock with the phone number to call.  We couldn't try all the dishes.

After lunch at Restoran Ah Hock, we continue our journey to the Lover's Bridge which is the main attraction at Tanjung Sepat and one of the reason why we are here.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
On the way to the Lover's Bridge, we spotted this grocery shop which sell many traditional food.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
And this shop selling some ancient stuff such this sword and gramophone.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
They also sell Chinese wine here.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
And different kind of Coke.

This is the Lover's Bridge which is very long for the fishermen to get to their boat.  Didn't meet any fishermen today.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
A view from the Lover's Bridge.  The weather today is nice and sunny.  Do wear sun block or bring an umbrella.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Unfortunately the wooden part of the Lover's Bridge has collapsed and we couldn't go any further.

We saw another wooden bridge and decided to go over there.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
On the way we spotted this decorated bicycle.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
And this decorated tree.  Not sure what event is it for?

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
More decorated colorful bicycles with traditional umbrella.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
A local girl looking for seafood, can't really see what is it.  Perhaps it is bamboo snail that we eat at a steamboat restaurant?

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The wooden bridge stretching out into the sea.

If not mistaken these wooden huts belong to the restaurant here.  Must be nice sitting here eating dinner and enjoying the sea breeze.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
A view of the wooden bridge.  Nice spot for photography.

Laupoh and me posing on the wooden bridge.

After spending around 1 hour here, we went to our second reason of driving to Tanjung Sepat.  The Perniagaan Pau Hai Yew Heng (海友兴手工海南包) is a very famous pau (Chinese bun) shop here in Tanjung Sepat and do expect long queue of people buying fresh pau.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The long queue at Pau Hai Yew Heng.  But it is worth our time.

Pau Hai Yew Heng shop sells five types of filling. Got Mui Choy Pau which is preserved vegetable, Pork Meat Pau,Red Bean Paste Pau, Kaya Pau, Vegetable Pau and Peanut Pau.  They also sell Loh Mai Kai (glutinous rice with chicken) but we came here for the pau.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The skinless pau.  Just kidding, it is a habit to remove the skin from the pau due to hygiene issue.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The vegetable pau, very delicious eaten hot.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The mui choy pau (preserved vegetable), couldn't find this kind of filling in KL or PJ.  Very nice indeed.

Our next destination is the GanoFarm Sdn Bhd.  GanoFarm is a mushroom business place and has been in business for more than 25 years. They are one of the leading companies in mushroom products in Malaysia.  There are many types of mushroom here such as the expensive Ling Zhi Mushroom but with a lot of health benefits, the Abalone Mushroom which we eat with steamboat, Monkey Head Mushroom and Black Jelly Mushroom.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
GanoFarm also sells healthy mushroom juice which is low sugar, no coloring and no preservative.  Since we never get to try mushroom juice, so we get a bottle of Ling Zhi drink.  Tasted really bitter but I guess it is good for health.  According to the banner below, Ling Zhi can protect the liver and it is anti-oxidant, anti-allergic, anti-viral, anti-bacteria and anti-inflammatory.  Wow, so many anti no wonder it is so bitter.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
All kind of healthy drink at GanoFarm such as Ling Zhi, Black Jelly, Wheat Grass, Snow Jelly, Aloe Vera and Roselle.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
I think this is Abalone Mushroom.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
This mushroom should be Lingzhi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidium).

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Not sure what mushroom type is this.  Looks like younger Abalone Mushroom.

GanoFarm is worth to visit if you are in Tanjung Sepat, for the bitter LingZhi drink, of course.  There are other products too which you can refer in their website's products section: http://www.ganofarm.com/products/

Our final destination at Tanjung Sepat is our dinner place which is the Golden Sea Restaurant (黄金海岸) at Pantai Morib.  Golden Sea Restaurant is a Chinese seafood restaurant located just beside the beach of Panta Morib and you can enjoy the golden sunset while eating your crabs.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
A view of the open area restaurant.  When it get dark there is a lot of mosquitoes, so bring some insect repellent if mosquitoes like your blood.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Must be nice sitting here and reading with the sea breeze.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
We ordered this lala which is fresh and delicious.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
We also ordered this crab bee hoon.  Nice but too bad the crab are rather small.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
This Kam Heong crab is not really nice for me and the crab is rather small too.  Maybe it is not crab season.
