Tong Yuan is made by mixing glutinous rice flour with a small amount of water. It is then form into balls and is cooked in boiling water and served in syrup water. Yes, it is definitely something that you can replicate easily at home but why do we make an one hour trip to Port Klang just for the tong yuan? With a perfect hint of sweetness and gingerly aroma, the syrup is to die for.
Ginger is not only the antiemetic for early pregnancy, it’s a remedy for indigestion, appetite loss and motion sickess. Few spoonful down the throat, our body feels warm because the ginger induces perspiration to remove cold energy from our body. It just feels so good, minus the t shirt soaked in sweat.

Port Klang Tong Yuan
Jalan Beringin, 42000, Pelabuhan Klang
(Go along the main road of Port Klang, drive slowly after KFC, you will see a road side stall just opposite EconJaya Supermarket)
I’m not able to provide direction to the stall in Bukit Tinggi, can anyone please do it so? Jackson? Pasan Kia?
Thanks to Tankiasu!
The address for the Bkt Tinggi’s tang yuen would be: Restoran Hock Bee Hiong,Lorong Batu Nilam 10. From KL, just go towards Klang city centre on Fed Highway. Go past the bridge over the Klang River. After 1km, you will see a flyover in front. Follow the signboard that shows a Hospital cross symbol. You will turn left here. After about 2 km, you will see the Hospital on your right. Drive past 2 more traffic lights and you can see the signboard that directs you to Bukit Tinggi. You will keep right and go underneath a flyover. At the traffic light junction, turn right. The shophouses would be on your right. Head towards Tesco, the kopitiam is near there.
