It has been really long since the last time I had Bak Kut Teh since returning to Penang. The BKT here simply cannot match KL and Klang’s BKT. I think because I have already tasted a really good BKT, normal ones don’t attract me anymore. But recently a friend recommended me to try a BKT stall in BB food court just behind Sunshine Square Bayan Baru.
Lai Xiang Bak Kut Teh only opens at night and seats are quite limited. The day I went, it was drizzling and we were confined to sit along the shops’ corridor. Business was very brisk, customers were arriving non-stop. We ordered a person’s serving and a bowl of pork meat balls. Unfortunately for us, yiu char kueh was already finished by the other lucky customers..
I have no idea if the pork meat balls are made by themselves or bought from the market. They were really nice, sweet and tender. About the soup, it was thick and tasted heavily of Chinese herbs. This is different from Klang’s stlye which has a lighter taste.
Yau Choy was also on our meal, tasted good because of the meat floss. Really a lot, don’t you think? A meal for 2 like this costed around RM14-16, depending on the drinks ordered. Quite reasonable and I look forward to eat here again, my friend’s recommendation is good :D
