Overrated by Ho Chiak!: Ah Her Bah Kut Teh

Those of you who have watched Ho Chiak!, would have remembered about their review on this Ah Her Bah Kut Teh, which is situated at the hawker street of Pandamaran, Port Klang. In their review, they said that the soup that they served are little but thick. And if you read about other food blogs,mostly written by people out of Klang, they would say this Bah Kut Teh is the best and usually sold out by 7pm. Some even said that it will be full by 6pm and there is usually no place to sit by 6.30pm. There is even one blog that said people would be lining up waiting for the stall to start business by 5pm.

Well, all I can say is all these are OVERRATED! I have tasted better bah kut teh than this. Some facts that were wrong:

1) I went there at 6.30pm and there are so many places to sit, not as claimed by the blogs.
2) No one seems to be lining up to sit.
3) The soup is little(that's right) and it's bloody diluted, not as claimed by Ho Chiak!

They are quite stingy too. If you have asked for fried unions, they will only give you in sauce bowl. Freaking little compare to other bah kut teh shop! I would say, there is no loss if you decided to dine in other places. Nothing special though.

It's at stall number 129.

I don't see anyone lining long lines!

Yup, the soup is little and diluted!

Pig's intestines.

Damn oily!

I would say, only Klang people knows how does a good bah kut teh taste like. The other blogs are just bullocks.

Chong Kok Kopitiam at Jalan Stesen, Klang

If you guys google about Chong Kok Kopitiam, there are quite a lot of reviews about it. This kopitiam is famous for it's traditional coffee, bread and nasi lemak. Some of my friends talked about it but I did not have a chance to try it out until recently. What tempted me to try it? Well, it's a picture of the nasi lemak posted by one of my senior not long ago.

Chong Kok Kopitiam.

Lets start with the nasi lemak. It's self-service, meaning they don't take orders on the table. Heck, they are too busy to take orders from the table. So you will have to line up. Let me show you the line:

The wait!

The nasi lemak is not too spicy. For those who prefer spicy nasi lemak, I don't think this is suitable for you. Then again it's quite good.

However, the thing the caught my taste is the coffee and the steam bread. It's not the nasi lemak in the end.

Chong Kok coffee.

The coffee is so thick and full of aroma that you will never go back to Starbucks, Coffee Bean or even Old Town at all. I just had the coffee this morning and the aroma still dances around my taste bud. Cloud nine, dude! No wonder you have to be there by 7am or you will be in this situation:

Standing around tables waiting for a place. It doesn't look nice making the patron 'galloping' their food fast to give you the place but this is what people will do for nice Klang food!

Come early or be like this!

By the way, the person that makes the coffee is one fully white haired uncle. I bet he must have mastered the art of coffee making to be called 'sifu' with that white hair of his.

Lastly, the steam bread.

The soft like silk steam bread with classic kaya.

This steam bread makes Old Town run for their money. Simply delicious!

This the map to get there. Red star marks the kopitiam:

It's near Seng Huat Restaurant.

By the way, some blogs said that this place is 'tanggung halah'. Well, it should be true since I do see many Malay families having their breakfast there.

The Legendary 'Under the Bridge Bak Kut Teh'

"London bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down..."
Yup, this is the verse of the song we sang during our kindergarden days...

Let's skip to the real part, "Under the bridge Bak Kut Teh". Don't worry. The bridge is ain't falling.

This is one of the famous bak kut teh shop in Klang since my father's day. Heck, maybe my grandfather's day. It's so legendary that many will say,"I want to try the under the bridge Klang bak kut teh". Well, this is it.

Seng Huat Restaurant.

If you google map it, it's at Jalan Raya Timur Klang. The res star marks the location.

Sorry, but I did not manage to take the picture of the dishes. It's so nice that I ate the dishes without thinking of taking the pictures. :p

Anyway, due to it being famous, the son who took over the restaurant made the dish quite pricey. It's RM 11 a bowl. Then again, you should try it once and decide for yourself whether it's worth the money as other shops in Klang usually charges less than RM 10 for their bak kut teh dishes.

Taman Eng Ann Hawker Center

Fancy some nice food for lunch during office lunch break? Well, head on over to Taman Eng Ann Hawker center. There is a variety of food there. Deliciously nice. Among the famous dishes there are the 'chee cheong fun', asam laksa, popiah and fried prawn cake.

The chee cheong fun there are legendary. The lines during the weekends are long. There are two stalls there with their own secret sauce. Why not try both to pick your favourite?

Next is asam laksa. As far as I know there are two stalls there. The difference of these two are the gravy. One is thicker and sweeter(the one at the far left side of the hawker center, next to the fried prawn cake), while the other is spicier and 'wetter' gravy(the one at the center)

The popiah are my mom's favourite but it's not to bad for my taste as I don't fancy popiah.

Finally, the fried prawn cake. Simply delicious and crunchy. This you have to try!

The direction to the place. It's at Jalan Pekan Baru Klang. Try google map it.

The deliciously crunchy fried prawn cake on the left and the fried banana on the right.

Rule 1 and 2

So what is these rules all about?

A relative of a friend of mine was admitted in the hospital.

Surgery was done and he was discharged despite not seen by physio yet.

So today I went and ask my boss about the patient being discharged by another specialist the day before even before he was seen by the physiotherapy team.

My boss was nice enough to explained it to me until he came up with another sentence.

"When working, there are two rules to follow. Rule 1: Your boss is always right. Rule 2: Even when you boss is wrong, rule 1 still applies."

Haha.. damn ka na sai!

Too Young for Healthy Food?

I was in the clinic for blood taking.

There was this last patient of mine asking about diabetes after I finished taking her blood.

She has a family history of diabetes.

She was asking about eating healthily and I mentioned about eating unpolished rice.

When I mentioned that I'm eating this kind of rice, she said I'm too young to be enjoying this kind of rice..

Yea... it taste a bit weird. But nothing wrong about eating healthily right? :p

Never send a man to a woman's talk

Hmm... why do I say that?

They send me to a woman's health talk today.

Being organised by many pharmaceutical companies, there will be goodies bag.

What did I get in there?


WTH am I supposed to do with it?

They say it's a unisex talk but then all the things in the bad are no unisex at all.

What am I going to do with the pads?

Geez.... I guess I can use it during flu then. Good absorption for running nose. Haha.. :p
