Yesterday night, I tried Klang dry bak kut teh for the first time, in Penang. 🙂 I was expecting some herbal stuffs. Instead, I got this claypot of stir fried meat, meat balls, crispy foo-phei (soya bean skin?), okra and dried chillies with lots of dark soya sauce. There are shreds of some stuffs which my husband said is ginger shreds and I thought carrots. Duh! It turned out to be dried cuttlefish. Nice!
This stall is quite popular and just opened a few months ago. The name is something like Xi Liu Xiang Klang Bak Kut Teh. I have never been to Klang so I can say it is a new experience for me. They sell nice Guiness Stout sauce fried chicken, sambal vege, fried fishes besides the regular bak kut teh. The bak kut teh soup is a bit too sweet for my liking though. However, I don’t get too thirsty after a meal so I suppose the taste is not MSG.
The stall is manned by many people but still the wait is long on weekends because of the crowd.Â There are white rice and dark soya sauce rice.Â Plus the standard garlic and chillies with dark and light soya sauce to play around with.
Do try their sweet and sour soya bean cake.Â It is filled with lots of dried shrimps and come with tangy flavoured sauce.
Location -Jalan Gottlieb, just a few metres away before Penang Chinese Girls High School, right across New Bob Centre.Â It is very brightly lite at night.Â Only available for dinner.
So, Klang-lites, is this how they serve bak kut teh down in Klang?
