Restaurant Angcle Peoh at Klang Bukit Tinggi

Friday, July 24, 2015

When it comes to Penang food, honestly I’m very hard to be pleased, very, very hard. I remembered that I would never, ever kneeled upon Kay-Elle-made laksa and Fried Koay Teow for the first few years I moved to KL. It’s just not there. But once I got back Penang, I’ll definitely grab at least a bowl of Penang laksa to soothe the itch…

I’ve eaten since young and I’d never imagine that they’ll move to Klang area to please KLites, and myself! Ang Kok Peoh, the younger brother of Ang’s family has came down along with his family to bring the legendary taste of Penang Air Itam Asam Laksa; meanwhile Ang’s elder brother remains his business in the original Air Itam market, and another asam laksa stall at Genting Café, Island Glades, Penang.

I wouldn’t want to share the stories due to the family dispute (although Miss Ang Kar Bee, the daughter of Angcle Peoh told me a lot more because she knows I’m a Penangite), but I’m here to tell you what we’ve tasted last week when Xavier invited me. No hesitation, I dragged my boyfriend and spent an hour drive to Klang Bukit Tinggi.

Never, ever forget to grab a bowl of Penang Laksa (in case if you’re not a local Penangite, named it as Penang Asam Laksa). Still a bowl of laksa noodles fulled with “kembung” fish, a generous amount of chopped lettuce, shredded cucumber, sliced onions, peppermint leaves, and laksa noodles that I’d never get enough with (I’ve ordered extra bowl of noodles). The prawn paste “hae koh” are originally brought in from Penang that doesn’t give an overly fishy smell. DaeBak!!

Angcle Peoh also adding in few more varieties of Penang delights too. Penang Fried Koay Teow with banana leaf as base to absorb extra oils and I’m well tempted with its big, fat, shellfish “ham” and prawn!

Penang Curry Mee (known as Curry Laksa) has a supremely thick soup, assembled with huge prawns and shellfish, I'll never get enough with soups....

Penang Hokkien Mee (known as Har Mee / Prawn Noodle) is quite a seasonal order as Miss Ang told me she’d never sell if she doesn’t collected enough big prawn heads. So good luck to you!

End up high with either Penang Rojak and Penang Chendul. It feels like I’ve made my food trip in Penang…  Thank you Angcle Peoh and Miss Ang!

  1. Oh my, Ashley! This place sounds like heaven to me and the dishes look so yummilicious, babe!! Gosh, must go try it out one day if I hit to Klang area... it opens on weekends too, am sure, right?

    Ah boy! This brings me back to my uni days when I roamed around Penang on my bike with my roommates in search of penang food. Though I didn't take the Ayer Itam assam laksa that often back then but I sure remember it taste delicious, and let's not get into talking about the cendol....

    boy I am in food dreamland now. Awesome post!
