Hit Banting for toddy yesterday with a hangover n some of my buddies who also went to St John’s. Been to the one along Kapar Road, the shack in Brickfields, and the seafood joints at Teluk Gong and Northport, but this the nicest one so far.
Its at the back of an ol wooden bungalow, and the family has been supplying most of the toddy shacks in Banting for three generations.
Obviously there’s more to Banting than a crazy Datuk who likes to murder business associates and burn the body / bodies in his farm.
The toddy is pretty good, and served chill. Since its kinda light, we added more intoxicants into d drink, mainly Guinness FES.
And the food is good. We dug into wild boar, turkey, monitor lizard, mutton and chicken. O yea, quail too.
The spot is located in a shaded area, with chickens and turkeys loitering.
Locating it is real easy if ur comin from the Kesas Highway. Its at Telok Datok on Route 5, just before Banting town. Gotta turn into a lil driveway that’s easy to miss (on your right if Klang is behind you. Gotta u-turn further up under a bridge and come back around). It looks deceivingly like any other family home. Located here (refer to the hybrid map).
Great way to spend a Sunday.
Note: I got this joint featured on the National Geographic Channel in 2014.

wow, good pairing there. Monitor lizard… must go and try, pairing with toddy… haha yum!yum!
Yea, interesting dish. Not one of my faves coz its cut very small, n not much meat but bones. I was told they normally serve the tail. The dry-curry turkey was good
Went there before and missing it badly!!!! Must make a trip there soon….
I havent been this year yet
