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).
My dear readers, please….please recommend me a place at Northern region that serves really good Bah Kut Teh! Pleaseeeeee……….
