Klang Fried Chicken & Yao Yao Ping, Klang

On a subsequent visit to Klang, Rif and I were introduced to the famous Klang Fried Chicken by Ken, who suggested a trip there after our brunch in PJ Old Town. I’ve always like fried chicken and the first thing I would want after a bad day is good fried chicken.

The fried chicken stall is Klang is situated in a restaurant called Kedai Makanan & Minuman Yao Yao Ping. Each piece is priced from RM2.40 onwards, depending on the parts you select. Just place your orders at the stall and take a seat inside the restaurant, which has air conditioning.

Freshly fried chicken

The chicken pieces were seasoned, coated in batter and then deep-fried, resulting in their light-browned, crunchy crust and tender, juicy meat. My fried chicken thigh (RM2.70) was especially juicy with a smooth and meaty texture. What I liked about the Klang Fried Chicken (also known as KFC) was how its skin remained crispy and light even after 15 minutes. Good stuff.

Crispy skin and juicy centre...Mmmmm!

If you’re one of those health-conscious people who refuse to eat deep-fried items, you’re missing out on good fried chicken. I’m not asking you to eat fried chicken every day (you’ll probably shorten your life by 10 years), but there’s no harm indulging in some once in a blue moon.

Besides the fried chicken, you can also try the Yao Yao Ping (RM1.50 per cup), the Malaysian version of an ice blended beverage. There are a few flavours to choose from – red bean, cendol, bubur cha cha, kedondong, mango, pineapple, watermelon, sour plum and lemon – and the flavours change every now and then. You can mix the flavours to create your personalized ice blended but don’t overdo it as the taste might not be as palatable as you thought. I chose to mix the cendol and bubur cha cha ice blended.

Mixed yao yao ping. What's your flavour?

Nothing fantastic but it was very refreshing on that hot afternoon. I reckon it tasted like a slurpee with local flavours and wouldn’t mind having it again.

    When you are in Klang again, please try Klang Jaya Fried Chicken. They are open daily except on Sundays from 7pm onwards. Please do not be put away by the road side manner of this stall. They serve one of the best tasting fried chicken ever. They have been around for a very long time and its a family business. If you really want a taste of this delicious item, try to get there early to avoid the long wait as the queue can drag to quite a bit if you’re timing is not right.
    The Location is at Jalan Selampit 29, Taman Klang Jaya. Its a corner leading up to a stretch of shop houses.

      Thanks Kelvin! Will definitely keep this in mind when I’m in Klang…soon. 😀

  2. heh, and this actually looks a little healthier than the other KFC, the fast food chain. the chicken skin color looks more, ahem, natural here 😀

      It’s tastier than KFC too! 🙂

  3. do they use kampung or “white” chicken?

    1. Bangsar Babe

      That one I’m not sure. Doubt it’s kampung chicken…but I know that they don’t freeze their chicken, hence the lovely texture.

  4. I am one of those health conscious ones that have a hard time with deep fried food. This chicken does look tempting though.

      A piece of fried chicken wouldn’t do much harm…right? 😉

  5. I remember last time my mixture of yao yao bing is sour plum + kedondong, very refreshing indeed!

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Yup yup….especially during hot afternoons!

  6. This looks delicious! I’m sold. I love fried chicken and that ice mixture thing deserves a drive down to Klang. Too bad I only read this on a Sunday afternoon or I’ll have gone. Next week then. 🙂

    Thanks for the recommendation!

    Hello. I am from the U.S., home of KFC and Popeye’s (not yet marketed in MY. Just wait. They’will kick the Colonel’s butt. Yo Yo Ice is far better than both. And the owner and his family are so nice. Wonderful place.
