My sister’s friend bought us dinner today. She recommended the grilled lamb, which was quite famous around her area there. I’ve heard of such grilled lamb before, but not too sure if it was in Klang. I’ve heard that grilled lamb is nice and I’m a sucker for lamb too. Hence we proceed with the place. While we were travelling there, I tried to look for “grill” keyword on my GPS and found Hing Ket.

Upon reaching the place, I realised there is another grill house right next door. But we ended up with Hing Ket, as it was POI in the GPS and it has an * on the name, which denotes it’s good.

Firstly, the fried rice was humongous in portion. I was surprised and almost fell off my chair just by the size of it. I guess it was made to feed 5 adults as there were 5 of us adults and my niece. The taste was so-so only though and lacked of wok hei (鑊氣). I-wouldn’t-want-another-bowl the kind of fried rice. My jalapeno in soya sauce doesn’t taste good either, so I had hard time swallowing those fried rice.

Then the fried oysters omelette was rather disappointing. The last of its kind that I’ve had was pretty good. The oysters here were overcooked and dried. The omelette part of it was dried and a tad crispy too. I was expecting soft moist omelette with medium rare or raw oyster with explosively innards. I was ended up chewing bubble gum instead.

Next, the grilled squids. I was reluctant to have it as it goes strongly against my strict diet. Unfortunately, I was succumbed to the good looks of it, ended up I had a few pieces too many of it. Despite the looks, it was rather tasteless actually. It’s alright since it’s not seasoned with anything except the reddish sauce. But it also lacked the great fragrance that squids let out when they were grilled or fried. Which was kind of, disappointing for a squid lover whom can’t have too many squids, like me.

When the grilled lamb was served, the lamb smell filled the area. I kinda like how the mild fragrance let out from the meat itself. When I had the first piece, it was totally awesome. Nicely marinated, not too much salty stuff. Despite it was well done (there were no traces of blood in it), the meat wasn’t sinewy at all. Just right and chew able. The previous 2 items no longer falter my impression dining here, all thanks to the great lamb. Definitely a must have.

After a while, the grilled stingray was served. It looked pretty normal, except it was cut in checkered box shape. The top layer of sauce was lightly taste, while it doesn’t overwhelm the original fish meat’s taste. After a few scoops of it, I realised that the fish was grilled to perfection. It was not overcooked nor it is raw. It was just right at the borderline where most of the moisture in the meat was retained, yet not sticky and smelly if it’s too raw.

Finally, the crabs were served. It seemed to me the crab was not prepared prior to sending to the hot grilles. Our host guessed that the crabs were dabbed with oil while it was being grilled. I was expecting grilled crabs similar to Seremban’s grilled crabs. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as tasty as what I expected and it was just plain grilling. Something which you could do with a BBQ grill if you managed to start the fire. Anyway, I managed to wallop a shell with plenty of roe in it. It was juicy, just like how a grilled crab should be. So, no complain there.

This restaurant has been in running in NZX for quite some time already. But I’ve only noticed it about 2 months back when taking a walk in NZX. I’ve wanted to give this place a try but I can’t seem to find the right time. Finally, I came to this place today with my colleague.


… honey sea coconut drink, RM2.50.


… clam soup with lots of lots of claims in it, only for RM7.90. Choices of spicy or non-spicy. I could see 2 jalapeños on top of the soup for spicing up the flavour. Yummy!


… my colleague’s mushroom soup, RM7.90. Smooth and milky.


… I was eager to try out their garlic bread. 5 piece for RM3.20.


… finally, a bacon omelette. This would be our main course.

The drink was nice for its price, with plenty of sea coconut. Garlic bread was mediocre, I couldn’t done better garlic breads. The soups were excellent. My colleague loved her mushroom soup, while my spicy clam soup was nice too, with hint of herbal in it. The omelette was nice, but my colleague said it was too salty. The eggs were salted and along with bacon strips, which were already salty, it made it even saltier. At least this omelette was a lot tastier and appetizing than Bamboo Cafe‘s and Cake Walk Cafe‘s counterparts, which were practically tasteless. Perhaps they should have put some cheese in it to balance out the salty taste. The bill came up to around RM33 for 2 pax, with less than filling food.

I would like to visit the place more often to try out other choices on the menu. There were just so many to choose from and I’
