One of the more well-known Bak Kut Teh outlets that have been around for a long time, you can’t miss this one as it is always crowded on weekend mornings. If you prefer the thicker & darker version of Bak Kut Teh with a stronger herbal scent, then this is THE place to go. Continue reading Seong Lai Bak Kut Teh (non-Halal)
This is one of those typical Chinese restaurants that have an extensive menu, being able to cook almost anything (edible) imaginable – Kam Heong, Salted Egg, Kung Po, Sweet & Sour, Marmite, whatever – so don’t expect a comprehensive first-review.
First, let me clarify that the owner is not related to me. In fact, I have no idea how to name this post since this shop doesn’t have a business signboard. However, the place would still be thronged with people especially at night, enjoying the sumptuous BKT concocted by the ingenious owner simply known as “Ah Gan”. What’s unique is that the restaurant only opens at night, from 8pm to 8am.

Yes, you’ve read that correctly. Formerly known as “Green Palace” or something, it was renamed “Doraemon Food Court” when another person bought over the place. Despite the funny name, this food court offers perhaps the best (and CHEAPEST) food in town. Since this food court opens only late in the evening, parking is free. Now let’s dump history and get straight to the FOOD!
I guess I owe many readers this particular interesting subject, especially the Chinese readers of this blog whom have been asking about the many famous “Bak Kut Teh” shops in Banting. Well, here it is. Continue reading Pui Kia Bak Kut Teh (Non-Halal)
As of 2 January 2009, barely 2 months after its first activity, Banting.Wordpress.com exceeds 3000 pageviews. Though facebook is still one of the main referrers, more than 50% of traffic to this blog comes from search engine results, mostly from Google and Yahoo. Keywords such as “banting town”, “kheng kopitiam”, “khengs kopitiam”, “banting selangor”, “majlis perbandaran banting” (actually it should be Majlis Daerah Kuala Langat), “nice food in banting”, “uncle yam kopitiam”, “sayang manis” and all other weird keywords top the charts for linking into this blog. Through these keywords, Banting.Wordpress.com actually appears in the top 3 of the search results, which is FANTASTIC! Keep it up, and we might even draw in some potential investors into the area.
Banting already has a few higher learning institutes, like Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP), Kolej Mara Banting, Kolej Komuniti Banting, and the upcoming matriculation college which has a super-large real estate! I will do a fair coverage of all these places soon, and hope the young leaders of tomorrow will see an opportunity of a good, affordable education in Banting, even when they may not do so well in school.
Happy New Year 2010, and may the year turn out to be the best!
For no apparent reason, some of my friends have been bugging me to write a post about McDonald’s in Banting, just to show that Banting is a fast-developing town. Below is a map that will guide you to Banting Business Centre, which is too new that it’s not shown on the aging Google Maps. Just follow the directions there, and the destination would be on your left. Continue reading McDonald’s Banting
