Restoran Boston Baru

- by angie -

This place is one of my favourite restaurants to go to on the weekend. It is located on Jalan Kapar in Klang, directly opposite Kamdar, also next door to the Tabung Haji Building. They open strictly at 7:00pm, if you were to arrive any earlier, you have to wait outside along with all the other hungry people. At 7:00pm sharp, you gotta run in like their giving free food and find a table. The crowd gets worse on weekends. If you can't get there by 7:00pm, be prepared to wait an hour for your food! Was it all worth it?

This is their signature dish, steamed lala in ginger & wine sauce. Of all the similar steamed lala i've tried all over, this is currently still the best. The wine taste is just right with ginger and garlic. A sip of heaven.

This is another signature dish, Nestum Mantis Prawns. The nestum flakes are slightly sweet with a tinge of curry leaves flavour. Very nice to eat with rice.

This is their hokkien mee, I rate it to be No.1 among all that I have ever tasted. Although i like hokkien mee, I often feel a bit disgusted after 2 small helpings as they are often oily. But with this one, i could finish the whole thing! Yum!

This is claypot pork belly. Only order this if you like fatty pork. Sorry this is not to my liking, i hate oily foods. Had to order this for someone else.

My meal for 4 persons consisting all of the above, plus another claypot tauhu and a small portion of cantonese noodles, rice and tea for 4, came to RM62!!!! Anyone needs more directions, feel free to ask :)

For the past 2 weeks now, some black spots have appeared on my feet. A few years ago, one spot did appear and I didn't think very much of it. But all of a sudden, so many are mushrooming on my feet. I'm beginning to wonder what they are. Could they be liver spots? Are my kidneys failing? Are these side-effects from my gall bladder operation?

I was about to visit the doctor this evening to find out, it was very worrying. I had a closer look here:


My feet and the rest of my body got badly sunburnt from the recent Discover Smiles Treasure hunt i went to. The blackened toe was when i knocked into something. And I'm nursing a bad sore throat & cough since I returned, on my 2nd course of antibiotics now, too much antibiotics until i'm having diarrhoea. Imagine coughing until you can't sleep, and coughing up a brown raisin every morning.

I'm at least better than hui hui. Originally with a slipped disc, she had a bulge at the base of her spine after the 2-3km bike ride. It was swelling and protruding from her back. Now she has to go for physiotherapy to push it back.

Was it all worth it?? Find out every Friday, 7:00-7:30pm on TV3.
