Fong Keow Bak Kut Teh - Klang

Yet another non-halal post - sorry! Hehe. Couple of days before my brother ended his 3-week holiday and had to go back to slog it out pulling 35-hour weeks at his cushy GLC in the you-kay, we all take a trip to Klang for Bak Kut Teh! Many people say the Teluk Pulai Bak Kut Teh shop is nicer but I personally prefer Fong Keow which is just next door.

Judging from the nice decorations in their 'new wing' expansion, I'd say they're doing pretty good. Pretty damn good.

Of course, the focus is on bak kut teh - Fong Keow serves the claypot style where all the kinds of meat you order is mixed into a large claypot. I love the soup here which is nice and thick and strong, but still liquid enough to classify as "soup" (some places it's more like gravy).

Yam rice here is nice as well; thing is that I feel yam rice makes me full quicker, which means I can't eat as much Bak Kut Teh as with normal rice.

Give the Assam Fish a miss, though. It's not a bad dish; just that it's nothing special and rather non-descript. Plus, the actual fish is a sting-ray (which may be a plus point for you if you were a crocodile hunter fan), but to me stingray doesn't go well with Assam.

I don't remember what this was called (hehehe), but it was pretty good too. Some sort of Loh Bak.

And of course, some vege to make us feel a little less guilty about eating so much meat :)

To get here, drive up the Federal Highway towards Klang/Shah Alam. After passing Sunway/Subang area there'll be one toll - drive another 15 minutes and pass the next toll, and immediately exit left. The shophouses around here house at least 5, or even more, bak kut teh stalls which are all quite full at lunchtime - speaks of how much the Klang peeps love their meat.

About MYR15 per person.

    5 reasons to eat at Fung Keow Pottery BKT:
    1) VERY nice environment
    2) VERY lousy taste

    Ask around if you doubt my bakuteh kakis group survey =P
