Bak Kut Teh
This Chinese cuisine can be found around every corner of Port Klang. The dish contains pork rib broth, garlic, herbs, shiitake mushrooms and pork ribs. The dish originates from the Teochew and Hoklo communities in Malaysia. The soup is usually served with chunks of cut up fried dough known to Malaysians as ‘you char kway’. People commonly pair it with many types of teas. This is to counteract the large amounts of fat that is infused in this dish. In Port Klang, the dish is paired with a type of tea called Tieguanyin.
If you are looking for Indian cuisine, Biryani is the way to go. Port Klang is also famous for its Indian Dishes, especially the Biryani dish. The contents of this dish include meat, rice, vegetables and spices. It is said that the dish originated from the northern parts of India and was probably introduced to Malaysia by the Indian diaspora community. The dish might be spicy, so it would be best to pair it with Lassi, a type of yogurt shake blended with fruits. This drink may cool your tongue and taste buds after all that spice.
These are just a few attractions of Port Klang. Since it is located near other major cities and towns, you can always choose to travel there if you need something more.
