Chong Kok Kopitiam (Muhibbah Food & Crowd) - Klang

We went for brunch at this famous multi-racial muhibbah. Vendors and workers of different race composition are there, and so are the customers. We thought that customers would thin out on a late Saturday morning at 1145am. We were wrong. It was crowded though, bearable. Food came after a 15minutes wait.

We enjoyed the food. The drinks were at 65%, so it was not up to my satisfaction level. Anyway, I was distracted by the long shophouse. And also the mixed crowd, which was a sight to behold.

The Banana Fritters and Cucur Udang came first. It was Pisang Raja. The Udang was somewhat invisible. Maybe embedded inside or a missed quality control. But I can smell and taste the prawny fragrance and the unmistakable taste from the sea. The crust and the circular rim around the cake were crunchy and the inside and middle were moist and subtly flavoured — certainly a good one.

The Banana Fritters had the crunchy batter, mildly sweetened. The banana was firm as I like it, cooked by the eat somewhat but still maintained its structure.

Our highlight was steamed and toasted bread. I saw their operations in the kitchen. All seems well. Our toast came slightly off the mark. I detected a wee bit of softness on the toast, absorption of the moisture. Also, the steam bread was no longer hot but lost some of its steam. It looked like they were not delivered promptly. Looked like the same issue of operations. Even the short distance between the kitchen and the dining was a challenge.

Their kaya was excellent. Did I catch a waft of ginger aroma? It's was a welcome touch. The butter was generous and real butter. Enough said.
