One Sunday morning, while I was sushifying (in my bed, my landlady text me asking whether I’d like to join her for Klang Bak Kut Teh for breakfast. Without a second thought, I replied her and jumped out from my bed and head to the shower.
Since she’s buying, I offered to drive.
It was quite a drive, approximately 40 minutes from PJ. When we were about to reach the Hokkien Association, she asked me to slow down at the intersection, and then, make an illegal turn into the opposite direction to enter the Association entrance.
Well, this is how the illegal attempt suppose to look like:
Blue arrows indicate the flow of traffic, red arrow indicates the attempted route, green arrow indicates the route I actually took.
Me, being the LAW ABIDER *cough cough* went into Lorong Dendang (following green arrow) in hoping to find to the RIGHT path to enter the association. HOWEVER, the road was gated and no entrance =..= meh…
In the end, we parked by the roadside in the residential area and walked all the way for BKT *pride* (otherwise we need to make a big round, when we could just walk over in less than 500 meters).
As we entered the Klang Hokkien Association, I thought we’re going into the building. Thinking that our breakfast will be served in a restaurant in the association, until I smell the BKT fragrance coming from the back of the building.
Yeoh’s Bak Kut Teh is located at the back of the Hokkien Association and it is like an outdoor restaurant with just roof and fans, not covered. It is very open concept one.. You enjoy your porkie BKT while watching them cook.
Although the place is hard to get by (to me), it is crowded with customers who look like they are regulars. They made themselves like at home. lol..
There are gas stove in between every 2-3 tables, with a kettle on it. Customers help themselves with the boiling hot water to make their own tea.
Once seated, we made our orders and immediately they bring us our utensils, tea pot and cups, and tea leaves.
We ordered veggie. This is what they call it as “sang choy”, I’m not very fluent in Cantonese, but this is what they refer to lettuce and normally served in any (mostly) BKT shop.
The Bak Kut Teh is served in a claypot. We had various parts of the porkie in this pot. There were fatty 3 layer pork, pork ribs, organs, mushroom, tauhu and foochuk.
My landlady was craving for some pork leg. So, we ordered to share. Unfortunately, they only have 1 type of serving portion. Nonetheless, she ordered also and nagging that I must help her finish it. WTEFFHOWCANINOTGETFATLIDAT!
At this rate, if I always join her for breakfast, I’ll definitely need to shop for new clothes!
