HING KET GRILL HOUSE @ Kampung Jawa, Klang

Thanks to Julian Si of Jules Eating Guide in Malaysia, now I have discovered another great eating place in Klang. In fact, most of my subsequent food posts will be featuring eateries in Klang. Today, I shall rave about my most favourite find, Hing Ket Grill House which is located at Kampung Jawa, Klang. Where? Scroll to the bottom of this post for direction, but WAIT!! Read on first, scroll down later.

Kampung Jawa seems to be a Malay kampung (village) area so it was quite a surprise to find a busy and packed Chinese restaurant located along a dusty main road, right opposite a mosque (use this as a landmark). The house which is converted into restaurant is quite big. One can choose to sit at the open-air area or the main dining area with ceiling fan or the small air-conditioned area. The grill area is located right in front of the shop, whereas other non-grilled items are whipped up at their back kitchen.

Three different sauces were placed on our table upon seated. Fiery hot chili sauce both with and without belachan (shrimp paste) and mint sauce for their specialty grilled lamb.
2

Fried Tong Fun or Glass Noodle is one of their recommended dish. Needless to say, it was in our must-order list. Priced at RM10 which I assumed it was for 3 pax, the tong fun texture was perfect!! Full of wok-hei and very tasty! Usually I tend to limit myself with tong fun because of indigestion problem, but I just couldn't help myself to 2nd helpings..ok, make it 3!

We wanted to try their tapioca noodle but was told it was not available that day. Lady boss recommended stir-fry yam noodle (RM10) instead. It was stir-fry with black sauce, similar to Hokkien noodle version. I didn't quite like it as the texture of the yam noodle was flat. I prefer tapioca noodle with the chewy QQ texture.

Lala Meehoon (Vermicelli with clams) was quite good too. Despite a little too tiny, the clams were fresh and sweet. Bonus point is, they are quite generous with the ingredients. This was also priced at RM10. If you ask me, go for the Fried Tong Fun!
5

The Or Chien or Oyster Omelet priced at RM12 was surprisingly good. Purely omelet version without the gluey starch. Most importantly, the oysters were fresh and juicy! Good stuff especially dipped into their spicy chili sauce. This will going to be my repeat order on my next visit.

Ahhhh...another yummy dish we had was the Salt Baked Prawns (RM19.00). It was cooked to perfection! At this point in time, we concluded that the chef at the back kitchen really rocks! We couldn't wait to come back again to try all the other items in their menu. Now, what about the grilled stuff???

I read that Grilled Lamb is their specialty and according to Julian, it is priced at RM9 per piece. I thought the portion is quite small for that price so I suggested to order 3 pieces to try. When it was served, honestly I was not impressed at all. It looked a bit dry. I was so wrong. One bite and everyone gave thumbs up! It was soooo well marinated and tasty! It was juicy and very very tender. Oooo...the most delicious part was of course, the sinful piece of crispy fats. The mint sauce surprisingly very good too! We ended up ordering additional 3 more pieces. Looking at my bill, they charged us RM45 for the lamb so it came up to RM7.50 per piece. Not sure if they have calculated wrongly, but I will definitely ask them on my next visit.

One bowl of white rice please!! Hubby couldn't resist from ordering rice to go with the Baked Assam Stingray (RM13). Five of us ended up sharing a small bowl of rice to go with the gravy. Personally, I find the gravy a bit on the sweet side and not spicy enough. No kick! For your information, I am still yearning for hot hot spicy food since I came back from Humen.

From the saucy version, we ordered another portion of stingray but this time it was grilled with curry powder. A HUGE piece of stingray priced at RM18. Very meaty and satisfying!
10

Priced at RM14.40 for 4 pieces, all the boys gave big thumbs up for the perfectly grilled sotong (squid).
11

Lastly, the Deep Fried Crullers (char kway/you tiao) stuffed with squid paste (RM6).
12

I didn't like the taste of the squid paste. If I am not wrong, they must have added my most hated artificial crabstick into the paste. Very artificial taste...not good not good. Maybe it was just me because the boys enjoyed it though.
13

Not a bad coverage for a first visit eh?? A total of 11 dishes (2 orders of lamb) for 5 adults came up to RM157.00. A very reasonable price to pay for such great food. Also do read Julian's post on this great place HERE. His plate of crabs was such a killer!!! I shall have that next visit!!!
