*Updates: 1Bah Kut Teh has ceased operations.
Nowadays everyone are really making “good” use of the “1” word. Was driving around SS2 one night and then spotted this BKT shop at the row opposite Hainan Kopitiam and KFC called 1 Bah Kut Teh (in Chinese, it was called Mou San Chuen). Here are some of the photos I took from the place last week.
Is BKT served in bowls a trend now or was it claypot’s version not so popular anymore? Mou San Chuen too, serve their BKT in bowls. The menu is really simple – similar like Pao Xiang, with lesser choice of vegetables, while price-wise, also slightly cheaper. Choose your preferred cuts of pork from the menu (popular parts usually sold out early).
The portions here was bigger than Pao Xiang, with additional ingredients like mushroom (if you’re lucky, because I din’t get that). CK claimed that they got his order wrong as he ordered Knuckle Joint (RM9.80) but was served with other parts, which were fattier. My lean meat (RM9.80) was okay, not too dry (a common problem with all types of lean meat) and quite chunky as well. The broth is darker with stronger herbal taste too. We also shared a serving of yau char kuey (fried crullers or oil stick, RM2.80) which we feel was a bit pricey. Total bill of 2 servings of BKT, 3 rice, 1 yau char kuey and 2 glasses of Chinese tea came up to RM28.90 nett.
