Mention Klang and most people will associate it with Bak Kut Teh – a delicious breakfast ritual of pork cuts, simmered in an intense herbal broth for that heady flavour and aroma. It is a staple in Klang where some like it soupy and others like it to be more intense. I like them both as I’m a soup person but I also love strong flavours. Finding a good combination of both is tough but I did.
That said, there was one other popular spot in Klang that I didn’t get to try – Mo Sang Kor in Taman Berkeley, said to serve one of the best (if not the best) bak kut teh in the area. Mo Sang Kor is known for its strong and thick broth; it’s so thick that I call it gravy, where the herbal flavour lingers on even after you’re done with your meal.
There are several choices for pork cuts but the most popular would be the “tua kut”, “kawan” and three-layer pork. At least that was what I noticed from the tables around me. The meat is cooked to perfect tenderness where the fats are semi-solid, and gives way in the mouth.
It was indeed, very good. One thing though – the uncle isn’t very generous with the broth as they don’t have enough to distribute so freely. Notice how the broth is dark brown in hue? That’s because they don’t dilute it with water to maintain the taste and consistency.
So don’t come here expecting refills; you’re lucky to even get an additional bowl which I managed to get and it was about three spoons worth of soup. That said, if you really take your bak kut teh seriously, this would be the place to go.
I’m definitely coming back for this as it’s really good, but would still go for my other favourite in Jalan Kapar. Which bak kut teh is your favourite? Do tell! :D
Food: 8.5/10 (non halal)
Verdict: Thick, dark and flavour packed soup, and meat that is beautifully tender and falling off the bone.
