We didn’t know what to eat one afternoon and wanted to try something new and so John says he will take us to this shop his friend took him in SS3, PJ. I had actually passed Chiew Sang many times but thought they only sells bak kut teh.

The moment you walked in to Chiew Sang you will see an Indian guy making the bak kut teh in front, as Brian called it Indian BKT… LOL…

Anyhow, we got a table for 8 and John ordered their famous fried fish head, some clear soup bak kut teh, their stewed bak kut teh, a tofu plus a vege dish.

The fried fish head is very tasty with a good hint of spiciness in it, very appetizing to go with rice. Fish is fresh and we almost cleaned the plate.

I like the clear soup bak kut teh, this is almost the teow chew style, clear but yet tasty and light. The only unfortunate part is that we ordered for 3 and the portion is still relatively small.

The other dish we had is the stewed bak kut teh, this is something new, basically they are very tasty stewed pork, very tender and tasty with the nice and thick stewed sauce.

I enjoyed the lunch here very much but only thing for me is the portion is a little small, so you gotta order a bit more and the price is not that cheap, so be prepared to spend a little more but at least the food here is good :).

Klang: Bak Kut Teh @ Restoran Thong Wei, Pandamaran

We went to Pandamaran, Klang to get Miharu’s City service at a Honda specialist shop here, as we had yet to eat anything for the day, we decided to venture out to shops nearby for a quick makan while waiting for the car to be worked at.

Nearby, hidden at Jalan Sentosa behind some houses and shops is a corner shop, Restoran Thong Wei selling bak kut teh. I asked the mechanic how’s the bkt there and he said, its not bad, can give it a try.

As we are approaching the shop, I noticed that the cook and I assume is the lady boss looks like a Thai lady, maybe she is Thai-Chinese I supposed. Even at the praying altar I do see Thai relevance.

Anyhow, this shop is quite popular and mainly locals, plus the prices are still friend too. If you are alone, you can order a bowl instead, as its cheaper at RM5.80 for small and RM6.80 for big. Otherwise you can go for claypot at RM8.80 per head. Rice is 80 cents for big and 40 cents for small.

We ordered 1 1/2 heads for claypot (small bone with some internal mixed) as there are 2 of us, with a bowl of yoo tiao plus 2 rices. The rice are topped with fried shallots the way I like it.

I would rate the soup as average, this is not the heavy type nor the light type but in between in terms of thickness and taste. But what is really nice is the meat, it looks fatty but when you take it, its quite alright.

The meat are tender as the small bone part always is but not too hard and dry. The skin with its layer of fats looks heavy, but when you actually take it, its smooth and nice to eat (well I did remove the access fats, but there are still quite a bit of the skin).

Surprisingly the bkt here turns out better than I expect and we had a decent brunch thanks to it.

I had been noticing this place everytime I use the Bukit Baru way to town in Melaka, finally last weekend I had a chance to check it out. I got there at 7.45pm and it was so crowded I had to wait about 10-15 mins to get a place to seat. They offered bak kut teh here in 2 choices, one is pork and the other is beef.

I ordered the beef and waited for about 25-30 mins as they shop is quite laid back… well it fact its not a shop but a house on the main road which had converted it’s porch into a makan place. I also noticed there’s 1 table that’s having a steamboat with peppery bak kut teh soup with beef, etc.

I ordered a can of beer for my wait at RM7.50 and the family that’s running the place was kind enough to offered me the day’s papers for the wait.

Finally my beef bak kut teh came, its a well portioned claypot of beef, beef internals, beef balls with foo chuk and cabbage served with a bowl of rice. The rice is a sticky, but the beef bak kut teh was good! Its not the usual bak kut teh soup as I expected. Its actually this thick and peppery soup with all the ingredents inside.

The soup is peppery hot but very very good and as I was eating, I was sweating hot and nose was running. The beef bak kut teh costed me RM10.50 and the final verdict is good, especially on a rainy day! Definately something unique to try, but try to avoid peak hours!
