Ah! Bak Kut Teh (BKT). I love this but hardly have the chance to eat often. My favorite so far is the one at Sungai Way but I have not been there for a while.
This BKT stall that I visited recently is located at A Foodie's Nest@The Starling.
Pin Qian Klang Bak Kut Teh (it's next to Champ's). I don't know if this is famous. I have never had Klang BKT before so I won't know if the taste is authentic or not. But what I know is BKT that I like and what I like would be good to me (the Sungai Way one being my benchmark).
Here you have a choice of 4 cuts of meat for your BKT, the Half Fat Pork (pork belly slices), Loin Ribs/Small Loin Ribs, Ribs and Pork Knuckle/Knuckle Joint. Alas no spare parts or mixed cuts. Bah!
And then you have the side orders and other dishes if BKT is not your thing.
And they also have BKT with noodles (soup or dry).
But I was there to satisfy my BKT craving and I prefer it with rice as I have already tried the noodle version elsewhere. Being a lover of pork knuckles, I went for the Pork Knuckle/Knuckle Joint BKT (RM15.20).
Here you can help yourself to the condiments of minced garlic, cili padi and soya sauce.
The first thing I did was sip the soup. It appears to be concentrated compared to other BKT I have had before. Perhaps this is how it is for the Klang style? There was strong fragrance and aroma of herbs but the soup was sweetish, like they added sugar. That sweetness spoilt it for me.
The blanched mustard greens had some sauce on it with some fried shallots. It was all right, I like having some vegetables with my meal.
I must have garlic, cili padi and soya sauce. Never mind the garlic breath.
Come to think of it, it's not worth it choosing knuckles as there is hardy any meat, only skin, cartilage and some fats. I came away only half full from this meal but refrained from eating anything else heh....heh....
I might come back, perhaps for the other items on the menu.
