After a series of bah kut teh served in bowl, I finally got to try the claypot version…. this time, in Pandamaran, Klang. Opens for dinner, this particular stall located in front of Public Bank, by the roadside. There are two long stretch of roadside stalls set up by the Klang district authorities for hawkers and this stall is one of them.
If you’re keen to try bah kut teh which is not crowded (most bah kut teh restaurants in Klang, especially those famous one like Pao Xiang and Mo Sang Kor are always crowded in the morning) or if you’re up for something different, this might be the place to go. Why different, you ask? Read on to find out!
I did not notice anything different first… well, it is common for Klang Valley folks to dunk their iceberg lettuce into the piping hot claypot (not that I known of any bah kut teh in Ipoh do the same, though), therefore, everything else in that pot are shaded from my view….
But when stired, I got a real surprise… can you see that cracked, oval-shaped thingy on the right? Yep, that’s actually a quail’s egg (quail’s egg in bah kut teh, no kidding!) You could also see there are loads of beancurd sheets (fu pei), pork, iceberg lettuce, button mushrooms and enoki mushrooms. The extra ingredients actually altered the herbal taste of the soup, which makes it not so authentic. Bah kut teh lovers who swear by the strong herbal taste and dark-coloured soup would most probably stay away from this. However, the extra ingredients are bonuses to me as I prefer a more well-balanced meal. :p
