We initially wanted to try Subang Teo Chew Bak Kut Teh, but when we reached the place at 1pm, everything was sold out. Not wanting to waste our long drive, we settled for Ah Seng Bak Kut Teh just up the road. Our Bak Kut Teh came piping hot, in a claypot. The soup wasn’t as flavourful or as thick as the Teluk Pulai version, or my regular BKT place at SS3. While the pork ribs were tender and falling off the bone, the pork belly wasn’t as good – the layer of fat was still hard and chewy. I don’t like chewy fat; it makes me queasy. We also ordered some fu chuk, which came in a claypot. The fu chuk had a nice crunch but the lackluster broth didn’t do it justice. It tasted ordinary to me. I didn’t dare order the claypot mushroom, because I reckon it would come with the same broth. Lunch came up to about RM40 for the 3 of us. While this wasn’t the worst bak kut teh I’ve eaten, it was nothing to shout about. Next time, I will make sure I get there by 11am, to try the much talked about Subang Teo Chew BKT.
Food: 5/10 (non-halal)
Verdict: The Bak Kut Teh was run of the mill.
