KY eats - Bak Kut Teh at Sungei Way, PJ
Now you see it, now you don't
Being a bloke from Penang, the island of awesome hawker food, staying in Klang Valley means I have to constantly go out of the way to satisfy my taste buds since most of the food here, well, basically sucks. There is, however, a few dishes that are usually better around here than in Penang. One of those dishes is Bak Kut Teh, one of my favorite non-halal dishes. YUM!
Now when it comes to bak kut teh, many of you would argue that Klang serves the best. I would not argue with that notion, but sometimes it's just a blardy bitch to drive all the way there and fight your way through all the chow ahbengs to have a meal. So we've found some pretty good establishments in PJ itself.
Ah Sang Bak Kut Teh is situated at Sungei Way (map below.) The place is rather crowded, as most good food places are, and opens only during lunch time, and I presume morning as well.
Now the food. The soup has a very rich herbal taste and smell, and the meat well cooked and soft. We ordered some oily vege to go with it too. The difference between PJ & Klang version is the lack of oily rice at the former, which is a shame, but probably what makes people from the rest of the Klang Valley be smaller size from them chow ahbengs.
2 of us had the food and the bill came up to less than RM 20. Pretty cheap and a rather good place satisfy your bak kut teh craving.
How to get there, you asked?
Correction: It's Bintang Supermarket, not Jaya.
