Now when it comes to glorious glorious Bak Kut Teh, The only place I would prefer enjoying this wonderful dish is Klang.
Unless of course, I am feeling lazy.
Which is fine because I have recently discovered this place which serves not just your normal pork BKT, but BKTs with seafood, lamb and dried BKT as well right in the heart of Subang. heh.
A.T. Seafood Bak Kut Teh first caught my eye when I was having tea in USJ Sentral not long ago. I had been itching to sample some slightly different BKT dishes lately and decided to give it a go. So after a few phone calls me and a bunch of friends were there that very night.
The interior of the restaurant is very bright lit, and really cold with air cond. Quite a different experience for those who are used to Klang BKT, which rarely provides any air conditioning at all. This provides the perfect enviroment for BKT for me, whats better than a big pot of boiling hot porky goodness in cold weather? The tidy enviroment offers a welcomed change to my usual dirty, messy BKT restaurants in Klang...hehehe
This place serves BKT in claypot or bowl style. Having quite a large group, we decided to go with the claypot instead. First to arrive was the normal BKT, both dry and soup, with your normal serving of pork belly, ribs and some lean meat for the ladies. Soup base was not too bad, one of the better ones outside Klang I must say. I however prefer the dry version here. Very aromatic and done with enough "fire" (wok-hei) indeed. The pieces of meat really soaked up every single drop of the sauce nicely and thats what a real good serving of dry BKT is all about. The use of just the right amount of spices adds a very nice finishing to the dish. Very good indeed.
Oh we had some vege too. Lets move on...
We decided to have our servings of pork intestines and chicken feet in separate bowls, as some of us could not take those delicacies. Not for me though. The chciken feet were smooth and aromatic, simply perfect. As for the intestines, I had better ones, the ones here are good nonetheless but had a very gu-ey texture, not fresh maybe.
And finally comes the centerpiece...soup based BKT with clams! The clams add a very pleasent sweet taste to the soup based, which I admit is a welcoming change to your daily dose of traditional BKT. The clams however did not absorb any of the BKT taste, and some of us did not like this they reckoned the taste of clams were too powerful and overtook the dish. Well, different tastebuds I guess.
Nonetheless, it was a very good meal and we really enjoy ourselves there. Just look at the empty plates and all.
The meal cost about RM20 for each of us, still OK price if you consider the environment and variety of choices there. They publish their pricing on their website so go ahead and have a look see for yourself.
Heres a map for you readers. If you are coming from KESAS highway, just turn left when you reach the USJ flyer over, drive past Summit USJ on your left and then turn left when you see a cross road right after Summit USJ. Keep to your right, and then turn right after the next traffic light. USJ Sentral is on your left. A.T. is located along the massage centres, right at the end of the road inside USJ Sentral.
