Restoran Kukus. Klang ~ cosy haven of Malay flavors
January 29, 2024
Restoran Kukus, is located along Jalan Tepi Sungai in Klang. Kukus is a delightful Malay eatery that captures the essence of a rustic Malay kampung home. As you step in, the ambiance welcomes you with wooden settings, creating a cozy atmosphere reminiscent of a traditional Malay dwelling.
To begin with the star at Kukus is undoubtedly the Tong Mo, a grilled sausage marinated beef with its special spices. The tantalizing smoky aroma wafts through the air, tempting everyone.
Next, one can’t help but be drawn to the other specialties too. The Ayam Goreng Berempah, a deep-fried chicken marinated with a flavorful blend of spices, is a must-try. The Ayam Masak Kunyit, featuring tender chicken cooked in turmeric, adds flavor to the dining experience.
Subsequently, for those seeking a more adventurous palate, should try Asam Pedas Patin Termerloh / Nasi Tempoyak Patin Temerloh. Both offer a unique yet homely flavor experience. The former introduces a smoky and spicy touch to the freshwater catfish, while the latter combines fermented durian paste with delicate patin fish.
Also, you can indulge in the simplicity of Malay comfort food with their Lempeng, a delectable pancake that perfectly complements the savory dishes.
During my visit, I opted for Ayam Goreng Berempah. It is served with aromatic rice, flavorful curry, tangy acar, spicy sambal, crunchy papadam, and a refreshing sirap drink. To elevate the experience, I added the Kerapu Betik, a delightful addition to the meal indeed.
