Opposite Chung Ling : Bak Kut Teh

The rain is sloshing down the tin roof of the shed call a Bak Kut Teh stall. An occassional breeze caused the rain to shower on us making the steaming claypot of bak kut teh extra comforting.

A bowl of rice flavoured with dark soya sauce, tiny dried shrimps and pieces of yam.

The best salted fish tofu. Small cubes of tofu which is crispy outside, smells subtlely of salted fish and inside, soft, smooth tofu.

All the above must have these for company. Cut bird eye chillies (green), red chillies and chopped garlic. They are to be mixed with dark soya sauce and light soya sauce.

What’s bak kut teh without this curlers? Crispy and oily. Fragrant and out of this world.

A closer look at what’s in that bowl of witch brew. They are tail, stomach, tongue, liver, kidney, meat, bones and balls (meat balls, ok?) of the pig.

Best thing to eat on a rainy nite is bak kut teh with all the above. Burppp..

Forget to add the location:

Keat Claypot Bak Kut Teh – a small hut with no address
Located near the Chung Ling High School. But is on the opposite road. I.e. the road coming from Air-itam to town. Hidden somewhere before the traffic light where Dragon Ball biscuit/market is.

    if you travel from farlim, keep an eye on the left. when u get near clhs, 1st u will pass through a police station, then a surau, an apartment and the traffic lights, slow down and find a place to park your car or bike as the parking space are truely limited. the bak kut teh shop is in a kopitiam just before the bus stop and past the indian barber shop. the bak kut teh here is fairly good but its just not my cup of tea as the stock is a little too thick for my liking. i prefer the one in kampar road near the car chop shop.
