Seong Lai Bak Kut Teh (non-Halal)

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)”

“Uncle Gan’s” Banting Bak Kut Teh (Non-Halal)


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.

Banting Business Centre & Mohideen Curry House

Just recently, I decided to do a more complete coverage of the new commercial area in town, Banting Business Centre. It says “Pusat Perdagangan Banting” at the front, which is what you’ll see when you reach here, but at the back – hidden since it’s a car-park space – it says “Banting Business Centre”. Another “brilliant” job done by the civil engineers at Majlis Daerah Kuala Langat, who screwed up on a simple job enlarging a drain near my house, and end up having to redo everything again because “the elevation of the new drain does not allow water to flow in the proper direction”. That was 3 weeks ago, and it’s still not completed today. Continue reading “Banting Business Centre & Mohideen Curry House”

Sayang Manis (I)


Although it’s already 2009, in as little as 5 years ago, charging more than RM5 for food is considered a suicide move for businesses here in Banting. That didn’t stop an entrepreneur from starting a premium restaurant – Sayang Manis (“Sayang” means affection and “Manis” means sweet in Bahasa Malaysia) – back in the 1990’s, and I remember my few visits there as a child.

Kheng’s Kopitiam


Kheng’s Kopitiam is one of the newly opened cafes located in the new commercial area called Banting Business Centre. Getting there couldn’t be simpler. If you’re travelling from Klang, go over the huge Banting bridge and take a left turn at the traffic lights right after the bridge. Then, take the first left-turn into Banting Business Centre. You’ll see a big McDonald’s outlet on your right. Kheng’s Kopitiam is at the corner lot at the end of the road. Parking is still free in the area. Continue reading “Kheng’s Kopitiam”
