Weekly Food Guide: Top 5 New Things to Try in Klang Valley This Week


1. Vintage 1988

Klang Valley’s cafes are essentially all about the brews. When it comes to getting the good work done, other factors come into play, and here’s a new café in town for you to settle in for a day or an hour, ordering frequently, tipping well, and getting the good work done.

This deceptively airy space is genuinely beautiful: with all high ceilings and overflowing plants, especially with the sun slanting in from the outside. Reliable WiFi, comfy seating a boon: a space that transforms as the day ebbs away catalyse evening work, or just offer an excuse to take a break.

Serving simplicity with a twist, they have their Tong Shui served in coupe cocktail glasses, making them perfect for the gram. Not just that, they serve boba cakes too, where the milk tea cake is topped with tapioca pearls!

5. Restoran BBQ Thai Aroi

Elevating the humble steamboat to something a little more different, Restoran BBQ Thai Aroi is a game-changer. They take our traditional steamboat up a notch with the obvious accompaniment: BBQ. This is surely one for the indecisive, those who struggle to choose between a simmering cauldron of tasty broths and deeply, grilled marinated meats.

Sit in and you’d agree that it ain’t necessary for a hella good steamboat to be served in a luxurious high-end restaurant. In fact, this humble steamboat & BBQ place does outwin a lot of average outposts out there.
