Tua Keat Bak Kut Teh 大吉肉骨茶 [Closed]

Tua Keat Bak Kut Teh is located in a coffee shop near West Coast Plaza and within walking distance from West Coast Food Center. No doubt that its only a small stall in the coffee shop, I'm quite surprise by the number of dishes they offered on their menu.

Stall of Tua Keat Bak Kut Teh

Tua Keat Bak Kut Teh offers the Klang Style of Herbal Bak Kut Teh with a mixture of pork ribs, belly, enoki mushrooms, Tau Ki (aka beancurd skin), vegetables, button mushrooms, and lettuce. The sweet nature of pork complemented the earthy and slightly bitter herbal taste.

Bak Kut Teh 肉骨茶 - $6.50 / $12

Braised Pork Trotter was bone-falling tender and big with generous portions. 

Braised Pork Trotter 卤猪脚 - $5.50

The Black Vinegar Pork Trotter is often known as the confinement dish. This dish is less often found on the hawkers' menus. Black Vinegar Pork Trotter always gives a distinctive and unforgettable flavour profile. The tender meat in combination with the flavourful and tangy sauce with the fatty nature of the pork is indeed awesome. Love the dish with the hint of sourness!

The quick-handed guy who manned the stall alone and managed the orders in a breeze. Salute him that he can actually whip up so many kinds of dishes on the menu being a one-man show. Besides that, he is friendly and never fails to smile.

Here's what we ordered for our meal! Let's start our scrumptious meal!

Our Order

Love this popular Chinese dish known for its tender chicken and delicious sauce that is perfect to pair with our rice bowl. This Drunken Ginger Chicken brings the warmth of ginger with the boldness of alcohol.

One of the sides I must have in my Bak Kut Teh Meal is this Fried Fritter aka Bak Kut Teh. I would use this crispy You Tiao and soak them in my soup!

You Tiao 油条 - $1.50

Soak up the essence from the herbal Bak Kut Teh Soup with a cut of the fried fritters. This is so yummy!

While there is the soup version of Bak Kut Tehm these Sweet and savoury tones of the meat served in the earthen claypot will be the Dry Pot Bak Kut Teh on the Menu. It has hints of spiciness and meat was abundantly coated in the sauce. However, we felt that the final touch of the dish could be livened up if they do include the shredded dried cuttlefish in it.

The curry chicken was aromatic, creamy and rich in flavour. It featured tender pieces of chicken and potato chunks within. The harmonious mix of flavours and texture was delightful. It goes well with our bowl of white rice. Do note that they

Not a lot of places have this on their menu too. The fried porridge has an umami taste and contains some burnt taste from the claypot. The pot lards also elevate the taste of it.
