Kuala Lumpur - My KL/Klang Bak Kut Teh Odyssey
Good Gawd, I just did a quick stock-take of the "bak kut teh" threads I posted on Chowhound in the past 1 year since my "big move" to KL. Here are some which I found:
1. Seng Huat (Under the Bridge) in Klang & Weng Heong in Batu Tiga Lama http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/786324
2. Mo Sang Kor http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/834479
3. Kee Heong http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/851029
4. Ah Wang & Fatty along Old Klang Road http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/841061
5. Ban Lee at Ipoh Rd http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/833079
6. Sun Fong in Medan Imbi http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/813642
7. Big Mouth in Chinatown http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/810103
8. Sem Kim on Jalan Ipoh http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/833081
9. Zheng Jia in Puchong http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/799770
10. Pao Xiang in Seri Petaling http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/820470
Anyhow, the reason I'm bringing this up was because I wanted to write up on yet another "bak kut teh" spot which I tried today. Pin Qian Klang Bak Kut Teh - which took over the stall space vacated by Mo Sang Kor at Lot 10's famous Hutong food-court in downtown KL a few months ago. I *don't * think Pin Qian is from Klang, as I'd not come across it in my various food excursions to Klang. Rather, I think the name of the stall inferred that it sells Klang-style "bak kut teh!
Anyway, I ordered a bowl of simmered pork belly slices with shitake mushrooms, a side-bowl of tofu puffs in a (very) slightly herbal soup, and a bowl of steamed white rice. It tasted pretty average to me, but maybe I'm spoiled for choice when it comes to good "bak kut teh" places in KL.
What a hideous green-stripe decor. :-)
I think a BKT log with long-running samplings of stuff from all over is very interesting to read and useful for all! Please do continue.
The BKT here looks fine to me. I like having two broths to drink, and rather like the idea of the tofu puffs in a light broth. Hmm, now I have a hankering for some BKT...
Did the Mo Sang Kor stall move elsewhere, or has the "mother shop" just quit having an outlet in KL?
