I had a splendid breakfast last weekend eating what else… but Bak Kut Teh. My sister had dined in Teluk Pulai (Claypot) Bak Kut Teh Restaurant @ Taman Intan (near Taman Rashna), Klang countless of time but it was a first for me and our parents. Funny though they name the restaurant Teluk Pulai when in actual the place is located at Taman Intan. Hehe
There are quite a number of Bak Kut Teh restaurants at Taman Intan. All within few meters away. However Teluk Pulai (Claypot) Bak Kut Teh Restaurant is the busiest of them all. We were lucky we didn’t have to wait at all even though there are others who came earlier than us having to wait… Lady luck I guess. 🙂
The restaurant is a corner shop lot.
With a large signboard and painted signage you definitely won’t miss this place. Problem is finding your way inside from the main road. Hehe. Please follow the google map I’ve link below.
A direct translate of the word Bak Kut Teh means Pork Bone Tea. Kinda hilarious if you ask me. Bak Kut Teh is a Chinese medicinal herbal broth simmer with pork ribs and meat for long hours. I like Bak Kut Teh (BKT) but I don’t eat them very often. When I think of BKT, I think of bad cholesterol. Haha
First thing first we need to wash our Chinese mini tea cups with hot water.
And of course our utensils too.
Typical sight at BKT restaurants. A couple of kettles on mini gas stoves are placed strategically between tables for Chinese tea making and to top up the tea pot with hot water later.
Rice plays an integral part of a perfect BKT meal. You can have the perfect BKT broth but with a lousy plate of rice? The overall meal is no good. For Teluk Pulai Bak Kut Teh Restaurant case, the rice is perfecto.
Yau char kwai is a must-have side dish. Dip yau char kwai in the BKT soup until soft.
Yau mak with oyster sauce and fried onions is another favorite side dish of mine. Yum-yum!
Behold the star… Bak Kut Teh. This claypot Bak Kut Teh consist of pai kuat (pork rib), chu keok wan (pork knee), chinese mushroom, golden mushroom (kam cham ku), tau hu pok and lettuce.
What makes a BKT delicious is the herbal broth. For this restaurant, the broth is just perfect! This is the best Bak Kut Teh meal I’ve had so far.
If you want to taste thicker Bak Kut Teh herbal broth, then I suggest you go to the restaurant next to Teluk Pulai (Claypot) BKT Restaurant which unfortunately I’ve forgotten the name. But never fear, I will review the restaurant next time.
The total bill came to RM50.60 for 4 persons.
