Kedai Makan Ah Poh

If you ask anyone staying in or have been to Pontian for recommended food, they may recommend this popular local eat from Kedai Makan Ah Poh. The place was very crowded with good turnovers on a Sunday Morning.

The ordering chit is so traditional that they simply indicate the pricing and portion based on the number of diners. No doubt that it is a small piece of paper, they have already offered a good range of dishes.

While we walked into the indoor eating place, we will definitely pass by the open kitchen whereby the man was trying to fulfil the stacks of orders given to him.

Sides like these cannot be missed on my meal with Bak Kut Teh. We simply love to have these soaked in the claypot soup,

The Chinese Pickled Vegetable was not overly oily even with fried pork lard topping up the dish. The amount of taste makes dishes so appetizing.

The Braised Sauce was thick and perfect to go with our bowls of white rice. Pig trotters were very tender and perfectly done in their savoury sauce.

A rare dish that not many eateries offered. The aromatic Chinese Yellow Wine was simply the best for the bowl of white rice, not forgetting the tender and delicious chicken in the claypot was totally addictive too.

Offals were well treated and without any gamey taste. We had a claypot of Pig's stomach soup for sharing. The texture of the stomach was well mixed with button mushrooms and the soup was not too peppery.

The subtle sweetness with a good hint of herbal taste was delightful. Like most the places, the soup from the Bak Kut Teh Claypot is refillable. Overall it was not too oily and a mixture of pig organs and meat were part of the delicious dish.

The servers were prompt in attending to us despite a big crowd during the peak hours. Environment-wise, I find it cooling and shady to be seated near the big trees.

Enjoyed being in the environment with simple and local delights. If chance permits, I will like to be back again.
