Ho Kee Seafood , Jinjang
Most KL residents always regard Jinjang as a rather backward area, but it will be a waste to dismiss it without reason as there’s this particular delicious seafood restaurant there.

Boon Tat, Port Klang
Boon Tat is definitely one of the oldest seafood places near Klang that has been around since the 1970s. All their dishes are carefully prepared and their signature steamed fish comes with vermicelli that soaks up the flavours of the fish. Their chilli crab and deep fried prawns are also good, as well as their oyster omelette.

Soon Fatt Restaurant, Sri Petaling
Often packed to the brim, you may be asked to share a table or ‘dap toi’ if it gets too crowded. The seafood here is cooked over a strong fire so everything is rich with Wok Hei or the flavour of a hot wok.

They will prepare your seafood with any sauce of your preference, and usually, most people go with steamed fish in soy sauce and garlic. You should also seriously order their butter prawns and glazed pork ribs.
