Dinner @ Yu Kee Bak Kut Teh, SS14 Subang Jaya

When you say Bak Kut Teh or short form as BKT, people often refers you to Klang. That’s because Klang is famous for Bak Kut Teh.

Nevertheless, I can get good BKT in Subang & KL or other states too. Nestled in this busy township of Subang, I found this good BKT! All thanks to Alex who highly recommended this place. Alex claimed that the very much popular Taiwanese singer Jay Chou visited this place once, sometime before year 2000. WOW! This place got so popular? Did Mr. Jay enjoyed the food? Did he get a free meal there? Did he cut an album on BKT? Oppsss….soreeeee….*cut the crap Mel!*

Well…a brief intro if you do not know what is BKT.

The name literally translates as “meat bone tea”, and, at its simplest, consists of meaty pork ribs simmered in a complex broth of herbs and spices (including star anise, cinnamon, cloves, dang gui, fennel seeds and garlic) for hours.[1] However, additional ingredients may include offal, varieties of mushroom, choy sum, and pieces of dried tofu or fried tofu puffs. Additional Chinese herbs may include yu zhu (rhizome of Solomon’s Seal) and ju zhi (buckthorn fruit), which give the soup a sweeter, slightly stronger flavor. Light and dark soy sauce are also added to the soup during cooking, with varying amounts depending on the variant. Garnishings include chopped coriander or green onions and a sprinkling of fried shallots. (source fr. wiki)

The crowd started to grow after 7pm. Though large crowd, you’ll get your food served pretty quick. Looking at the crowd..I think I can count the profit *kaching kaching $$$$$*.

I like mixing both dark & light soya sauce together with garlic & cili padi.

They serves ‘nasi minyak’ rather than the white rice which is so common. I love dipping the crispy ‘yau char kwai’ into the hot soup.

Star of the day! Bak Kut Teh filled with 3 layers pork, pork ribs, pig’s intestine, pig’s stomach and fu chuk for RM28.50 (serving for 3). Well, we added Enoki Mushroom for RM5.

*sings..Smoke Get in Your Eyes……BKT must be consume while its hot. I very much prefers the BKT that serves in claypot. These days, there are many serving method. However I still love the classic claypot one lah! Ok..back to this pot of BKT. What can I say more? The rich and flavorful soup is so good. If you unlike the strong taste of herbs, worry not…the herbs in the soup is not too strong yet retain the good flavors. Not enough of soup? Ask for more! ^^

Dry Bak Kut Teh – RM19 (serving for 2). After trying the common type of BKT, how about trying the dry version. Something like braising I suppose. Loving every bites of the 3 layers pork which is meaty and tender cooked with dark soya sauce, chopped cili padi and ginger.

Vinegar Pork Trotter (猪脚醋) – RM9.50 (serving for 1)

A dish which usually consumed by mummies during confinement (after childbirth). Why? This dish is often cooked with lots of ginger. Knowing that ginger able to dispel wind from the body.

Sour & Spicy Vegetable – RM5 (small)

For single serving, I would say the portion is generous enough. The sourish yet spicy gravy is so appetizing.

Too much of meat? Well…balancing it by ordering a plate of vege; “Yau Mak”(lettuce) – RM10
