I’ve been living near Old Klang Road for close to 18 years (since birth), and that’s way before the huge transformation that’s happening especially with the Scott Garden area, which used to be just a row of shop houses that were rather old school. And when I took the bus last time to school, I would passed by this row of shop houses, and there’s always a few shops that’s selling Bak Kut Teh. However, not once have I eaten there before, as my family preferred BKT place was always Meng Kee in PJ Old Town.
However a couple of months back, me together with a few friends plan to have drinks at Scott Garden, and decided to have dinner at this place which is by the NPE overhead bridge and is famous for it’s fish, among with it’s BKT.
Underneath the zinc roof, you can see rows of tables with a number on top of each tables. I guess it’s easier that way to determine customer’s orders.
A complete table shot before dwelling in onto each individual dish.
We ordered Claypot BKT (RM30) for 3 pax and it comes with lots crispy ‘Foo Chuk’. Since everyone like needle mushrooms, we ordered extra at RM4 per plate to add in as well.
The soup is heavily infused with herbal flavor, but tasted average. The good thing was the staff won’t hesitate to add more soup if yours is finished, so like one of my friend, he practically ate 3 bowls of rice with the refills.
Vegetables to go with the meat, and of course Yau Char Gwai (RM3 per bowl).
Pork Trotters (RM10) was pretty good compare to the BKT. The braised meat was tender, another good dish to accompany plenty of bowls of rice.
Ginger Steamed Fish Head (RM31 for big portion) was easily the highlight of the meal. The fish was fresh and comes with a generous portion of crushed ginger and garlic. There’s other method of steaming like Assam and Soya Sauce too but their signature is the Ginger one.
Overall, my view was the Steamed Fish Head was pretty good and could be easily the signature dish for the place as compare to the BKT here. Price was pretty alright considering we pay RM103 for 6 of us (and some of us have 2-3 bowls of rice).
