You know what’s better than rewarding yourself after a long week with a good night out’s worth of partying and painting the town red? Supper. And you can bet that Malaysian clubbers love their supper. The good thing is, we have food from various local cuisines that are available around the clock. The bad thing is, not everybody knows where to get the best ones or worse, what to eat – because we’re spoilt for choice like that.
Hence, we’ve narrowed down some popular post-clubbing-eat haunts that, quite frankly, if you don’t know about by now then you ain’t a true blue Malaysian clubber. Most of these places have been around for years so be prepared to take a walk down memory lane while reminiscing the good ol’ days of clubbing. For some reason, clubbers still love flocking to these places especially after the 2am mark. See if you’re one of the many partygoers who more often than not can be found sobering up at one of these haunts in Klang Valley:
China Town Seng Kee, Petaling Street Kuala Lumpur
Yes, you know the one! Until today, China Town Seng Kee is still often heavily populated by clubbers after midnight not only because they’ve got ample servings of super oily noms, but because of its prime location, right behind Petaling Street. The eatery is famous for their “siew yoke mee” (roasted pork noodle) and “loh shu fun”. There’s also “yong tau fu” but it’s not all that great. Don’t leave without trying the first 2 dishes though! Also, their servings are pretty humongous so it’s best to order to share amongst yourselves.
Location: 52, Jalan Sultan, Kuala Lumpur
Devi’s Corner, Bangsar
When all else fails past midnight, settle for the staple Malaysian instant noodles! Devi’s Corner is a 24-hour mamak that’s in between KL and PJ, which explains why it’s really popular amongst clubbers who are on the way home (in PJ). Their Maggi Mee goreng is the most commonly ordered item off their menu, although they’ve got huge selection of other food. We highly suggest you go big and order the Maggi Mee goreng ayam (Maggi Mee goreng plus fried chicken). So bad, so good!
Location: 69, Corner of Jalan Telawi 2 and Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur
Gerai Misai Indomie, SS2 Petaling Jaya
How can we go without adding this one to the list? It’s true, the boss of Gerai Misai Indomie aka Mr. “Misai” himself is long gone, but the stall is still operating at SS2’s mamak square. In fact, it has been around for as long as we can remember (read: high school days). True to its name, Gerai Misai Indomie is famous for their Indomie with “telur mata kerbau”. You may request for super “pedas” (read: addition of chilli padi) if you like. Yum, a sinful serving match made in epicurean heaven 😉
Location: Gerai 9 (Kedai Shaid Abu Thahir), Jalan SS2/60, Petaling Jaya
Ngau Kee Beef Noodles, Jalan Tengkat Tong Shin Kuala Lumpur
For over 4 decades, this little stall in the heart of KL has been a lunch, dinner, and supper food fix. In fact, it’s probably the oldest beef ball noodle eatery in town. It’s not too far away from most clubs too. There’s a variety of stuff that you can add to your beef noodles but we’d usually just go for their dry beef ball noodles. If you’re brave enough, you may choose to add beef innards (an acquired taste) to your sinful delight.
Location: Jalan Tengkat Tong Shin, Kuala Lumpur
Darussalam, SS15 Subang Jaya
Sure, this place is essentially “just another mamak” but Darussalam is actually pretty popular amongst students (read: Taylor’s, Inti, Metropolitan) as well as clubber. It could be their Maggie Mee goreng, or “tandoori naan”, but the one thing you can’t go wrong with is their piping hot “nasi lemak”. Piece of fried chicken done just right? Check. Delicious “sambal” that will keep you eating? Check. Addictive enough for a second order? Check, check, check.
Location: 1G & 3G, Jalan SS 15/8B, Subang Jaya
Wong Ah Wah, Jalan Alor Kuala Lumpur
This is perhaps the nearest one to Zouk Club Kuala Lumpur. So it should come as no surprise if you see the same faces that you saw at the club flocking the restaurant after hours. Believe it or not, Wong Ah Wah (seasoned Wong Ah Wah-goers know it as “WAW”) started off as a small stall selling BBQ chicken wings. It’s now a full-fledged Chinese restaurant that sells a variety of other yummylicious dishes but their BBQ chicken wings is still wildly popular!
Location: 1, Jalan Alor, Kuala Lumpur
Bumbung Nasi Lemak & Indomie, Seapark Petaling Jaya
Also known at the “Maybank Nasi Lemak” or “Maybank Indomie” in Seapark, Bumbung Nasi Lemak is arguably one of the most popular “nasi lemak” hotspots in Petaling Jaya. For starters, it’s always jam packed with hungry people, right from the very second they open for business early in the evenings for dinner. Bumbung Nasi Lemak serves fluffy and aromatic coconut rice with just the right amount of spicy “sambal” coupled with peanuts, anchovies, fried chicken (if you want), and a “telur mata kerbau”. Their other signature dish is the “Indomie goreng”. Prepare to go for seconds!
Location: Jalan 21/11b, Sea Park, Petaling Jaya
Wantan Mee Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur
By day, this place is a car mechanic shop. But by night, it turns into one of KL city’s most popular supper haunts. If you’re looking for your “wantan mee” fix, look no further than Sungai Besi Wantan Mee. For more than 10 years, they’ve been surviving on selling only “wantan mee” so that says a lot about how good it is! You can either have the regular springy “wantan mee” served with “char siew” or order it with other sides such as the wild boar curry, pork leg vinegar, Hakka stewed pork, or ginger duck.
Location: No. 190H, Jalan 2 1/2 Miles, Off Sg Besi, Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur
Geylang Lor 9 Frogs’ Legs Porridge, SS2 Petaling Jaya
In Singapore, Geylang Lorong 9 is notorious for a couple of things, one of which is their frogs’ legs porridge. Just our luck, the restaurant opened up several branches in Malaysia! Relatively new as compared to the other all-time favourite post-clubbing-eats haunts, the first Malaysians Geylang Lor 9 branch (aptly located in SS2 since it’s any PJ-based glutton’s favourite food central) serves up piping hot porridge in a claypot. You can opt for frogs’ legs with or without the porridge, but don’t forget to order a separate “kungpow” (read: dry chili) serving of frogs’ legs!
Location: 10, Jalan SS2/61, Petaling Jaya
