Ginger steamed fish and superb Pineapple at Hou Moon, Goh Hock Huat - Klang

Another superb makan place in Klang town ...

The signature dish amazed me, the deep Bentong-ginger infused steamed fish :-) Glorious! We also ordered some roast duck, which was good, and a dish of excellent fried long beans and brinjal.



Some history from rasarasa.net
IN THE over 20 years since it opened in 1986, Hou Moon has transformed itself almost completely from a roast duck rice restaurant to one selling primarily seafood. Roast duck is still being sold but only at a rather inconspicuous corner. Today, if someone walks in, it is most likely that he is pointed to steamed fish and prawns on the menu.
Hou Moon was located in the initial 12 years along Lebuh Gopeng. It was moved to the present premises in 1998. The owners, Chai Pak Chuen and wife Yeoh Kim Lian, come from a family involved in the food business – which partly explains why Hou Moon could transform so radically so fast. For this reason, one can also expect very fresh seafood here.

Aunt G, with her deep local knowledge, ordered half a pineapple for dessert (aka 2 slices, cut into little chunks) which was incredibly deep in flavour and sweetness despite its lack of colour. Yes, its pale, but boy was it juicy!
