Yi Xin Ge Bak Kut Teh Restaurant @ People’s Park, Petaling Jaya
Yi Xin Ge 一心阁 is a Bak Kut Teh restaurant at People’s Park, Kelana Jaya that has been around for more than 25 years. Their first outlet was initially opened at Petaling Jaya Section 14 but moved to it current location later. Business starts as early as 6.30am and it is said to be the favorite Bak Kut Teh of former Malaysian badminton legend Datuk Eddy Choong.
The founder of Yi Xin Ge is a Bak Kut Teh lover himself. After experimenting with various recipes to prepare his own Bak Kut Teh he finally came up with one good enough even to setup him own shop. The soup here is clearer, slightly sweeter with a mild herb taste – and actually a lot milder if compared to the other Bak Kut Teh shops in Klang Valley.
The sweet taste is attributed to the fact that they use a lot of yu zhu – 玉竹 (stem of Solomon’s Seal) often used for its natural sweetness in flavoring Chinese herbal soup. A hint of Ginseng taste could be detected as well.
The Bak Kut Teh comes in a bowl and I was quite surprised with the portion of meat provided for 2 pax. It had a combination of various parts like pork ribs, meat, trotter and intestines. All of these cost a little over RM20 inclusive of Chinese tea, rice and you tiao, quite a reasonable price.
My personal preference when it comes to Bak Kut Teh, is a thicker soup base with strong taste of spices that would leave your body feel heaty afterwards. Because of that Yi Xin Ge’s Bak Kut Teh did not appeal much to me. It is more recommended to those who like their Bak Kut Teh with flavor leaning more towards herb than heavy flavor.
Take away of pre-packed Bak Kut Teh herbs are also available here if you want to prepare it at home.
By the way if you like Chicken Rice, Kee Kee Bentong Chicken Rice just a few shops away is not bad too!

Ever since I tried Maria’s excellent Western food and cakes, I have not been able to find another restaurant that serve such high quality food at a good value they are offering. Being a family business also means that they are personally involved in choosing the best ingredients as well as the cooking. Like for

Located at the heart of PJ, SS2 is Nyonya Restaurant – a three decades old and pork free restaurant serving authentic baba nyonya cuisine since 1974. Although the current owner is the fourth, changes have been minimal and the dishes are still faithfully prepared according to the original chef’s recipes. I like to start off

This is actually the article or so called review I submitted to BestFoodJunction’s Restaurant Review Contest held earlier this year. Somehow the the magazine either went scammy suddenly, or they simply do not bother anymore, because there was no update on contest. Based on the contest’s rule, I am not supposed to publish this, else
