A single Google search of this restaurant will lead you to a thousand of reviews praising them. They don’t just prosper in food; they also prosper in a history of over 70 years. Their homemade beef lai fun has been the sole reason patrons are mad about them. The broth is as clear as a clean river, there is no greasy aftertaste and the meat is tender. For the final touch, mix in some chili sauce to get the flavour of your life!

It’s never too hard to find an experience with authentic kopitiam culture from the early 1900’s in Kluang. This kopitiam shop has been operating since 1938 and the flavours of their food have been preserved since the early days. Kick your day off with the cup of Hainanese coffee and kaya butter toasts it needs!

Anyone who knows them would know they’re famous for their curry noodles. The aromatic curry broth, the generous ingredients that include cockles, beansprouts, bean curds and char siew — what is there to not like? For a stronger flavour, we recommend adding some of their special sambal paste.

We weren’t exaggerating when we said Kluang is rich with history and kopitiam culture. Even this shop has a history of over 50 years. They offer two types of chicken rice — white chicken rice and roasted chicken rice. It sounds like the kind of chicken rice we can find in any shop, but this is special because it retains the original flavour of Hainanese chicken rice!

Due to their specialization in satay, many people may mistake them as merely a satay shop. Once you look at the menu, that’s far from the case — other than satays, there are many other offerings that include finger food and desserts. Their satay selections include chicken, lamb and pork — and we highly recommend the pork satay. Other dishes you can taste here include Hokkein mee, fried chicken wings and otak-otak amongst many others.

Soymilk speaks volumes of familiarity to us Malaysians. Like other shops on the list, Pemborong Air Tahu Ah Wah has been around for a long time, specializing in soy milk and tau fu fa. To simply put, their soy milk is very fragrant — and by very, we meant very. There’s a reason why they made it to this list! They also sell soymilk at pasar malam, so do keep an eye on them.

Even if you’re not fond of shaved ice, we would still strongly urge that you give them a chance. It’s hard to go wrong with a bowl of Watermelon Sago, after all! It’s the perfect place to cool and chill on a hot afternoon. They may not be any different from other shaved ice, but whoever said simple and ordinary food won’t cut it?

Even in Kluang you can find the “golden pillow”, a big piece of baked bread with a nice little surprise inside — curry and meat! The meat is usually either chicken or lamb, and the portion is large enough to feed four people. Peel some bread and dunk them in the curry broth to have the treat of your life!


Zenxin Organic Park

Zenxin Organic Park prides itself in being the largest organic park in all of Malaysia. Other than vegetation cultivation, this serves as a good place for vacation. You not only get to see many different plants here; you also get to meet and interact with small animals, do hiking or engage in archery. There’s even a hot-pot place here that uses organic ingredients harvested from the park!

Kluang Coffee Powder Factory has established their mark for about half a century. Almost every Kluang local get their coffee from them; even the coffee beans used by Kluang Rail Station are from this factory! If you’re a coffee lover, having a good time here is a guarantee.


Their Shanghai-styled mooncakes are the spotlight of their business, which are very different from the mooncakes we’re used to — donning a long, almond-like shape. The exteriors are crispy and the fillings taste nice without feeling greasy. It’s the perfect souvenir to get for your loved ones.

Visiting the factory means bringing home a few packs of their coffee! These can actually be found in supermarkets as well. Yes, it’s true that coffee varies by flavour depending on its type so it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this one is extremely aromatic when brewed — so why not give it a try anyway? ;)
