Tourists constantly underestimate Kuala Kubu Bharu as a tourist spot. Actually, it’s a really chill and historic town. Additionally, this sleepy town has some of the best-cooked meals one can find in the state of Selangor. Conveniently situated at the foothill of the Titiwangsa Mountain Range it offers the best weather and views while you work your way to a food coma!
Kedai Makanan Teo Kee
Teo Kee specialises in Teochew cuisine and, to boot, has a history of over 50 years. Authenticity is a given, as Teochew is the owner himself. The highlights of this restaurant, such as braised pork, eggs, pickled Chinese mustard, and tofu, are braised dishes that make them completely worth the trip! A highly recommended option is their signature Tofu Fish!
