Hing Ket Grill House
This is one of my preferred eating places. The reason why I have not featured it earlier is that this thing is too damn popular already, they do not need more publicity. As it is, if you go on Fridays or weekends, you better arrive before 7pm or you will walk away disappointed. Its comfort food. Its our very own kind of barbecue.
I am there at least once a month. Its in Klang but funnily many people from Klang have not been there. No, its not another bak-kut teh stall!!! Its an unpretentious grill house. Go with somebody who have been there, I beg you, its very difficult to locate.
I always sit outside the bungalow restaurant to enjoy the early evening alfresco dining. Nothing better than to go in shorts and T-shirt and sandals. Have a cool beer (plus dunk it in ice for that Malaysian-hawker-way of enjoying cold beer) and wait for the food. Plus, be prepared to eat with your fingers a lot, its a lot more fun.
Their number one dish is Grilled lamb chops. Its not a pricey place, and the lamb chops are not the best cut. A tip, ask them to cut it into bite size pieces, save you wrangling with fork and knife over the bones and tendons. Its the smokiness that makes it extremely tasty, and their remarkably fresh home made mint sauce. Aaahhh ...
Their next best thing to have is grilled fish, just ask for the best fish they have for the day. Again, its nicely grilled and the key is their wonderfully spicy chilli sauce that comes with a zing. The chilli is used to coat and grill the fish with - notes of belacan, killer chilli and a good dose of garlic and lime.
The other must have item is grilled crabs. My complaint here is they do not have terribly big ones, just small crabs, but its still wonderful if you like crabs.
Its not just grilled stuff they do well. They do a mean Marmite chicken wings and you should leave room for their mee dish using thoong-fun.
All in all, you will leave the place spending not more than RM50pp but what a wonderful way to have dinner. Now if the beach was right in front of the restaurant, then its paradise.
