Despite moving to Cheras close to 6 years now, I haven’t really venture out a lot to scout for nice food around my area. I’ve only known that there’s a Fish Head Noodle stall (which quality had gone from good to worst!), a Wan Tan Mee stall and ABC Restaurant (our favourite joint for our weekly dose of Roti Canai).
When it comes to Bak Kut Teh, it’s either that we had to go to Old Town Meng Kee or another shop in Pandan Indah and it’s only after a while that we realised that there’s an old school BKT shop near my place (because my parents somehow discovered it).
The BKT stall have quite a unique name, which is called December Bak Kut Teh (in Cantonese it’s called Sup Yee Yuet). When I was there around 7PM last Sunday, the place is almost full and quite a lot of the porky goodness is almost gone. Seen here is the lady boss busy cooking up a storm.
The shop mirrored quite a lot from those in Klang where you can see there’s a few large pots with different parts of the pig. As a customer, you can then choose whether you want the stomach, liver, knuckle, pig’s tail, etc. Of course, it depends on availability so if you are there late, a lot of the good parts will be gone.
Once you have chosen that particular pork loin, then it will all go into a claypot. Although it look as simple as that, it takes a good 15 minutes for them to prepare my order.
Since I have no preference of which particular part, I just requested to the lady boss that I don’t want any intestines, so I ended up getting some ribs, stomach and a few other parts which I haven’t got a clue about.
The soup is good but I kept having the urge to drink water a few hours after that so I think there must be quite an amount of MSG being used. The serving is RM16 for 2 person so that average out about RM8 per person, which is pretty reasonable.
I’ve got no complaint because it’s the next best thing around my area without driving halfway across town. So if you are nearby, do give it a try.
