Day Trip Around Klang - Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh.

On the second day of raya, I joined a group of bloggers and tweeples for a day trip around Klang. Thank to Eric Yong for organising and getting everyone together. The goal for the day was to have Bak Kut Teh for breakfast, Seafood in Pulau Ketam and Fried Chicken in Pandamaran. And we are gonna have all this with a budget of not more than RM100.

So we gathered at BHP Petrol Station, along Federal Highway, right after Shah Alam Batu Tiga toll before convoying with 3 MRS to Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh, the Famous Under the Klang bridge Bak Kut Teh @ Klang Town. If you are clueless what Bak Kut Teh (BKT) is, read here at Wikipedia.

Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh

As usual, the place was packed when we arrived, lucky for us, Thomas Yap arrive early to reserved 2 large table for about 21 people. We later added another large table so that everyone can sit comfortably.

Yau Fan (Oily Rice)

Yau Fan or Oily Rice is often prepared by mixing white rice with fried shallots.

Yau Char Kwai

Yau Char Kwai is a long deep fried dough known in English as Chinese Oil Stick (just i case you are not know what Yau Char Kwai is click here Wikipedia for more info). What you see in the picture had been cut into pieces and served in bowl.

My bowl of bak kut teh

The bak kut teh is served in bowl just as there were traditionally. As there were so many of us, its rather hard for us to share, so we order a bowl each(with a mixture of pork rib and pork intestine.

After my recent visit, I'm sad to say that the standard @ Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh has dropped tremendously compare to my last visit 2 years back. In fact my regular BKT outlet near Sentosa Klang taste much better (anyway that's another story to share). The soup wasn't as tasty as it use to be that I didn't even ask for more soup. The amount of soup you see in the picture is all that I had for the day. Traditionally people who loves Bak Kut Teh, will never have enough of the soup, and would even go to the extend of soaking the rice into the soup before eating it.

I'm not condemning that the food is not good but the quality drop significantly and I find my regular BKT stall to be better than this. Hope Seng Huat BKT will do something to improve their quality and bring it's BKT back to its glory.

The meal cost us about RM11/person. Affordable by KL standard but maybe a little pricey for some.
