If you are in Klang, you may want to consider trying a few Klang food outlets which have been around for many years and even decades. The typical traditional breakfast that people from Klang take everyday is toasted bread with coffee or bak kut teh. The demand for food throughout the day has caused the shop owners to also operate many of these food stalls throughout the day. Hence, you can take toasted bread or bak kut teh at anytime of the day.
Here are some of the restaurants that you may want to go to while you are here.
Klang Food - Mee Hoon Kuih
Mee Hoon Kuih is made from flour and usually cook together with vegetables, egg and finally topped up with fried anchovies or "ikan bilis".

A big bowl with egg costs RM4.00 and barley drink costs RM1.
This shop is usually crowded during lunch hours hence it is not a good idea to go during this time. The demand for it has caused another shop at the same row selling the same food but it is not as crowded as this shop.
