Klang Dried Bak Kut Teh, Lai Choon Restaurant

Klang is always known for Bak Kut Teh and also believed to be the home of Bak Kut Teh. Today, I am going to write about one of the Klang Bak Kut Teh and the dried version of Bak Kut Teh, most of the patrons who came here were from klang.

This is the Lai Choon Bak Kut Teh located at Meru, Klang. It is just beside Klang Parkson Parade and again it is pretty crowded as you see in the picture. Thanks for my friends who came early to get the table. They waited 30 minutes for the table, so if you are coming on weekends, be early. For more info on Bak Kut Teh you can check out Bak Kut Teh at Wikipedia

This is the dried version of Bak Kut Teh and not every places will have this.  The dried Bak Kut Teh is a bit spicy as it is cooked with the dried-chili. Normally people will order this in additional to the "normal" soup Bak Kut Teh.

This is essential when you eat Bak Kut Teh, "Yew Char Kuey" (Hokkien) or "Yau Char Kwai" (Cantonese). It is for you to dip in the Bak Kut Teh soup,  the amount of time it stays in the soup will decide how the "Yew Char Kwai" tastes. So you decide yourself, according to your own preferences.

This is the traditional Bak Kut Teh with soup, certain places you can even ask for additional ingredient but i doubt they have it here. For those who have not tried Bak Kut Teh before, the soup of the Bak Kut Teh can always be topped up without additional charges. It is something like the bottomless drinks available in the western cuisine.

This is how it looks like when you eating Bak Kut Teh at klang, tea is normally served with your Bak Kut Teh to dissolve the fat in the pork. So far, i have not seen anyone ordered carbohydrate drinks with Bak Kut Teh. For the infomation of the health conscious person, you can always order lean meat like what normally we do.
