Klang…the holy place for Bah Kut Teh, the place where Bah Kut Teh was founded, the place which has worst road condition (you will know why soon), the place that I loved and hoped to live just because of it’s Bah Kut Teh.
In my last trip down to Kuala Lumpur for Christmas holidays, I decided to visit Pandamaran, a small town in Klang which boast 2 great Bah Kut Teh stalls, which 1 of them is Ah Her Bah Kut Teh. Since I am traveling from Sungai Petani, I timed myself well. I MUST reach Pandamaran by 5PM, or hell will break through.
Reasons? I had heard too many stories saying that Ah Her will be super crowded if you arrive anytime after 5.30PM, and I myself know well that if I were want to enter Klang after working hours, I might be stuck in jam for hours! Besides, since I had totally no idea where is Pandamaran, or how to go there, and I am only armed with my iPhone with PapagoM6 installed in it, it might take me sometime to actually find the place.
Hence, I started my journey at 12PM from Sungai Petani, all the way down…..to my holy place – Klang.
Stopping only once for pee and a light lunch, and with little cars on the road, great GPS, I reach in front of Ah Her Bah Kut Teh at around 4.30PM.
Since they only start business at 5.00PM, we waited in the car until 4.45PM. At this time, the stall is still…..very empty.
