I would never be realized there is a "Bak Kut Teh" restaurant ( "Bak Kut Teh" literally translates as "meat bone tea" consists of meaty pork ribs in a complex broth of herbs and spices ) located behind the famous and always full house 'Bak Kut Teh' restaurant which I have blog before named <直落玻璃瓦煲肉骨茶 Restoran Teluk Pulai (Clay Pot) Bak Kut Teh> (click here).
We visited <Restoran Fong Keow (Pottery) Bah Kut Teh 凤娇 (瓦煲) 肉骨茶> because the famous one was completely packed yet many were standing awaiting seats. It left us no choice and in the meanwhile we noticed there was another restaurant just right behind it, therefore without any hesitate we changed our eating point.
I was attracted by the name of "Fong Keow 凤娇" in the beginning, because it has the same name with the wife of the action movie's superstar- Jacky Chan.
Seemingly there were lesser customers compared with <Restoran Teluk Pulai (Clay Pot) Bak Kut Teh>.
However it has better and cooler atmosphere, more leisure~ ^^
I like their decoration as well, kinda nostalgia feel~
There are several huge tree trunks stand still in the restaurant, and we chose the seat next to it..
Haha..the lighting seems so romantic, distinctive with other authentic "Bak Kut Teh" restaurant..
I was surprised when seeing their menu has even printed Japanese letters translates every name of the dishes.
Guess they have numerous Japanese customers patronize their place, or else it needless to do so. Before long, we have seen about 10 Japanese peoples entering the restaurant having their meal there, and has corroborated our prior predicts. Nice guess~
In addition to "Bak Kut Teh", they do serve various dishes and snacks...not bad, but wait, why they don't show price tag on menu? Owing to just the two of us, we couldn't order more but just the "Soup Bak Kut Teh", "Dried Bak Kut Teh" and "Oyster Sauce Vegetable".
A hot pot of <Chinese Tea - Rm 3.00> or Chinese Tea Iced always be a good mate with "Bak Kut Teh".
<Yau Char Kui 油炸鬼 ( Deep-fried breadstick ) - Rm 1.50> is not gonna be omitted while having "Bak Kut Teh".
<Dried Bak Kut Teh 干肉骨茶 - Rm 13 perpax> tasted average as many others...
< Soup Bak Kut Teh 汤肉骨茶 - Rm 14.50 per-pax> Mmmm...tasted average either.
<Lettuce With Oyster Sauce 蚝油玻璃生菜 - Rm 8.00> so fresh and nice, but many restaurants can do as well as this or better.
Overall the dishes were quite tolerable yet costly, no wonder there are no price tag on the menu >.<
Rm 42.40 for two person, kinda costly for merely "Bak Kut Teh" lunch...no air-conditional, no live band, no music playing..but just some foreigners ( Japanese ), I guess that's the reason why they charge more :P
Nevertheless I would prefer more to "Teow Chiu 潮州 Bak Kut Teh" than "Hokkien 福建 Bak Kut Teh" where overwhelming Klang restaurants serve "Hokkien Bak Kut Teh" which have both "Soup & Dried Bak Kut Teh" but no “Marinaded Pig Trotters 卤猪脚” and has more salty taste in cookery . Whereas "Teow Chiu Bak Kut Teh" doesn't serve "Dried Bak Kut Teh" but "Soup Bak Kut Teh" & "Marinaded Pig Trotters" and it has sweeter in taste, and yet I love their "Marinaded Pig Trotters".
That's why even though Klang is known for their "Bak Kut Teh" and can be easily found at everywhere in Klang region, yet they ain't fit my belly well....I'm kinda picky, am I not? Haha :P
