The Old School - Klang Bak Kut Teh

Bak Kut Teh is not a new thing to savor in my book. I do have BKT "meat bone tea" once a while. My favourite is a dry version served at one of this BKT outlet in Kepong. However, I'm still a shy virgin when it comes to original Klang Bak Kut Teh. Needless to say, I have never been to Klang before.  

 I finally get the chance to visit this town which is so synonym with BKT delicacy when Lard from Czech Republic visited us. We were brought to this unknown shop lot in the older part of Klang. I know I should have making the effort to at least even find out the name of the restaurant. This is definitely not the famous Seng Huat but rather similar as they served their BKT in a rather traditional way. That is in a bowl and no fancy condiments, no "You Tiao", mushrooms, inners, not even chilli padi and garlic.

 A small bowl of this, cost us RM8.00 each. Rather pricey considering the portion. Though I have no complain on the taste. The meat was succulent and the soup was flavorful but if this is the best of Klang has to offer, I will say it is over rated then. I can definitely find equally awesome BKT else where.

The lunch session for the four of us with a pot of tea costs us RM47 in total. Good value for money ? hmm...not really. I will reserve my judgment up until I have tried other established BKT joints in Klang.

By the way, does anyone of you know what is the name of this BKT joint ?

Not a fan of bkt... Would rather have something else. It certainly does not look like you're in NZ anymore?
