Before I start blogging....
Happy 2010 Everyone!!! Special thanks to all my readers as you people are the inspiration behind this blogger's never-ending quest for good food from all corners of the country!
OK back to blogging.
And whats better than starting the new year with some yummilicious BAK KUT TEH?
This time I went to Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh, one of the more famous ones in Klang and more specifically in Bekerly Gardens. They are famous for tying up their meat with strings then cooking them in one whole piece, thus absorbing more flavours compared to conventional styles of BKT. Also not to be missed are their lard cakes & huge pork ribs, which I unfortunately missed because we reached there late....
The set up of this place is as traditional as you want them to be. Simple shot lot, dirty doorsteps and organized madness inside. Looks for their big signage when looking for the place.
Or look for this small signage on the middle of the road...
We ordered the "small bones", tied shoulder meat & some fatty cuts for good measure...since they ran out of lard cakes & huge ribs. What makes a good serving of BKT in my mind would be:
1. Good soup
2. fresh cuts of pork
And this places exceeds all my expectations.
The soup was wonderfully fragrant and have a well balance taste of spices, essential to the dish. Mixing in with rice was marvelous as the slight fragrant of the rice mixed superbly well with the soup. The meat were as fresh as they get, as I know the place gets fresh supplies of pork from the nearby market every morning.
Another interesting thing about the BKT here: they have less fat floating around the soup. Really I no bluff one! this is all thanks to their meat tying technique which keeps the fat in the meat instead of floating around the soup. Now this makes the soup tastier in a way and keeps all the yummy yummy fats in the meat. Clever eh?
Just look at these pictures, aren't you hungry already?
Yum Yum Yum.
No one can resist this BKT i tell you. No one!
We left happy & well satisfied. The bill came to around RM50 for 5 people, just the right price for BKT in Klang.
Heres a map for you readers. Just take a 3 o' clock turn when you reach the Bekerley rouadabout from Federal Highway then turn into Lebuh Bangau on your right. Pao Xiang is located on your left along Lebuh Bangau. Piece of advice: GO EARLY LIKE 8 am!!! They have a branch in 1 Utama & another opening soon in Pavilion I heard.
