Lao Di Fang Bah Kut Teh @ Sungai Petani

Bah Kut Teh….ahh….how I miss those days when I am staying in Petaling Jaya, where Puchong and Klang is so near to me, where above average Bah Kut Teh is easily to be found…ahhhh I really miss those days, as I am a huge Bah Kut Teh lover! But, once I am back in my hometown, gosh, everything change! Bah Kut Teh here is so sucks, and even the best one is just like drain water if compare to better ones in Central Region! I had rant before in my personal blog at Samlee860407.com before about how I hate them. GRrrrrrr!!!!!

I had not eaten Bah Kut Teh at all ever since my last rant (dated 8th March 2009) in Sungai Petani. Reason is I am worry about the more I had Bah Kut Teh here, I will one day become a Bah Kut Teh hater. Until recently, I had heard that there is this new restaurant serve not bad Bah Kut Teh, and they even had the dried version! Well, ok, since it’s been so long, I decided to give them another try.

Luckily, it was OK. NO, my OK is not OK for the standard of Central Region, but for the standard of my hometown. The soup is quite OK, meat is quite OK, taste OK, just everything is OK. Nothing spectacular. 4.5/10

Here comes the dry version. Well, it is the first dried Bah Kut Teh in Sungai Petani, and luckily, it was quite OK. The meat is quite tender, not too dried, but just not enough spicy. Still OK la if I don’t want to hiam too much. 5.5/10

Lao Di Fang, who self proclaimed that their Bah Kut Teh is the Klang version, but too bad, the quality is not there. They even had a huge poster inside the restaurant telling the story of how Bah Kut Teh was invented and such, but for me, I think I will have to forget about Bah Kut Teh as long as I am in my hometown, and now I just have to pray that those highly recommend in Penang will be as good as those in Klang (well, maybe no need as good la, lose a bit also never-mind la).

  1. Ya, its good luck :p

    not lucky la…lol….

    good luck last time is good, but now it fail. Soup version one i think both same same la…but lao di fang got dry one, so win a tiny bit lo…ahhah

    SP BKT still fail…even its consider the better one, i still give a score of just pass nia LOL

  2. This is definitely a “new” Bak Kut Teh joint in SP after I left home for the States. Had tried it once during one of my recent trip home. Have to say, the meat and the broth were just so so. Especially if you have eaten Bak Kut Teh in KL and Klang areas. SP (evening Penang) is just “no match” to KL and Klang when it comes to this dish.

    The famous Bak Kut Teh joints in SP back then before I left for the States.were Tan and Zhu Chuan “祖传” Bak Kut Teh. Not sure if they are still around.

    • 祖传 is still around. But just like u say, bah kut Teh up north can never fight with those in kang. I really hope someone can prove me wrong on this as I just love bah kut Teh but I can’t get a really good one here. 😦
