THE youths of Bandar Baru Klang DAP are on a mission to highlight the eateries and interesting food found in Klang, specifically Taman Berkeley, in a special booklet.
The 60-year-old Taman Berkeley is known for its 100-odd restaurants and food stalls that line six streets in the neighbourhood -- Lebuh Bangau, Jalan Lang, Lebuh Lang, Jalan Angsa, Lorong Lang and Lorong Angsa.
Speaking at a press conference, Bandar Baru Klang assemblyman Datuk Teng Chang Khim said the area’s special feature was that 30% of businesses there were focused on food.
“Taman Berkeley is a go-to place on weekends thanks to its branding as a food haven,” he said.
Many speciality restaurants are located in Taman Berkeley and Teng said among the must-try were mee hoon kueh, fried porridge, Pulau Ketam seafood and nasi lemak.
Over the next three months, Teng said the youth committee would be visiting restaurants and food stalls in Taman Berkeley in an effort to collate information and stories from business operators.
The content collected will also be used to produce videos that will be uploaded on social media sites.
Teng, who is also Selangor Investment, Industry and Commerce Committee
chairman, said his office would be
partially sponsoring the publication of the booklet.
He urged all food operators in Taman Berkeley to lend their support to the initiative by buying ad space in the booklet.
