Have Bak Kut Teh brunch with old schoolmates. Caker asked what other nice food does Klang has?! It's a good question indeed, I'm Pasankia yet most of the food I mentioned in my blog are KL and PJ's food. Mentos said Xuan Gong(璇宫) pork ribs can be consider, I agreed that.
A lot of Klang Chinese will know Xuan Gong pork ribs, but most of the people do not aware the actual name is Peng Heong, that is because Peng Heong Hakka Restaurant is located at the next to Seri Intan Cienema and the cinema's Chinese name is Xuan Gong(璇宫). Xuan Gong was popular in the old day. Like all other old style cinema, Xuan Gong is fighting for surviving these day.
Due to hygienic reason, my family do not come to this place often. However on my recent visit I notice their tableware and cutlery is cleaner than last, yet location wise is still a problem, as it's located at road side. Dine with my family, 5 of us.
This is the pork ribs which Peng Heong is famous for. This Pork ribs also known as pork loin rib chop or "Pai Kuat Wong" in Cantonese. Seriously, I've never taste a better pork rib chop than this. The meat is sweet and so tender. The chef must be marinate the rib in long hours before frying it. You can notice every table has order a plate of this pork rib chop.
Hakka clay pot vinegar pork leg is another popular item. It doesn't surprise me, even though we ordered every time we are here.
We order this clay pot chicken curry, my complain is too oily. You can see from the picture, there are so much chili oil floating. The other dislike is the cutting, some of the chicken has very big cut.
Vegetable, quite fresh. Just light boil in water and serve with mixture soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame sauce and top with shallot crisp. Besides the dishes above, Peng Heong do serve other food like mutton curry, asam kampung fish, roasted chicken.
Peng Heong special make chili sauce, light spicy, sour and sweat. The reason I mentioned here is usual chili sauce on the table are quite watery. For their usual customer, they serve with "special" chili sauce. The picture shown is the "special" one. The special version is thicker than normal. I didn't taste the normal chili sauce, I think the differences is watery vs thicker. Try to request on your next visit, they might give you.
Not forget to mentioned the soy drink, just like home make, soy bean and sugar, nothing more. It's fresh. Total damage: RM46.00

Peng Heong Hakka Paikut Restaurant is quite hard to find if you're not familiar with Klang. Ask Chinese about Xuan Gong Cinema, they will tell you.
