Tmn Industri Bolton Hawker's Centre - Sri Gombak, Batu Caves

Old school Claypot Chicken Rice with Salted Fish
Getting into the groove for lunch in a non-prime food area needs a lot of psyching up. Otherwise it will be the regular folks eating at regular proven eating grounds. Some rely on sandwiches and even lunch boxes from spouses. God bless them! But for some if they can get motivated and moving, it will an exercise that could be as interesting as pitching for a sale.

When I am in Batu Caves area, the easy way out would be to the Hawkers' Centre @ Taman Industri Bolton. This is the Chinese side of the Batu Caves area. Claypot Chicken Rice, the old school way for older folks. All manner of soups for the good or the ying and the yang of the body. Old school again. Salted Chicken Rice - raised eyebrows. Poached chicken. Steam Fresh-Water Fish. Those are my favourites when I am lazy and at my competitive worst. And they are concentrated at the further end of the centre going in from the BHP Station side.
