This place was recommended by a friend who grew up in Klang. Must be promising, right? It's no ordinary Bak Kut Teh though as this places also serves some 'fusion' dishes including a very appetising looking pork knuckle (from the photo). The interior was definitely cheerful, with white wooden furniture adorned with floral prints.
We ordered the Combination Bak Kut Teh (which comes with Pork ribs and Pork Belly) and it arrived in a lovely ceramic bowl. It's weird not seeing BKT in a claypot though I must say. Taste wise, the broth is rich enough with good flavours, though not the best one we've tried. The meat met our expectation in terms of tenderness. I enjoyed the flavourful pork belly, the fat just melts in my mouth. Heavenly. The only problem was that as the place was airconditioned, the soup (and rice) got cold pretty fast, thus dampened the experience. Luckily, we were able to get extra soup to get the temperature back up. I would have prefer some other offals (such as intestines) on the menu too.
The dry BKT was just ok. It was a bit one-dimensional, mostly tasted of soy sauce (thus erred on the salty side) with only a bit of sweetness. While the pork belly was tender, the rest of the meat was on the chewy side.
The pork belly buns were highly recommended by my friend. Soft pillowy man tau with braised pork belly (BKT flavoured, of course) with some julienned vegetables. I would have preferred slightly more flavour profile from perhaps more vegetables (also to cut through the richness of the pork belly). Not a bad dish.
One thing that really bugged us though, was the service. We were the only customers at 6.30pm. But we still need to actively track down the staff for service (considering we do pay the service tax here, it's only reasonable to expect attentive service, right?). The food also took a little long to arrive which is baffling, surely they would have a large pot of soup and meat ready for serving? Hopefully this is not why the place is empty, and this restaurant does have a potential to be quite popular.
