Restaurant Chow Kiat - Jalan Kapar (Klang)

Where else can be the best bak kut teh except from Klang. In fact, a "shout out" for pork simmered in herbs will definitely route you to the front row of shops or even to the road side stalls, known for their slowly cooked for hours waffling bak kut teh. My craving-shout-out to my two close Chinese friends was responded, in return landed us in Restaurant Chow Kiat (18, Jalan Kapar) on this Friday evening. A no frill and simple coffee shop eatery, Chow Kiat surprisingly was quiet. Only one table occupied. Ordering was taken charge by the friends in their dialect but I still interrupted so as to include  "spare parts", particularly intestines.

Service was quick. Tea sachets arrived with a pot of hot water and little cups. Into the pot, tea leaves were steep and then came the 4 bowls of bkt, cili padi in soy sauce and 3 plates of rice. 

We tucked in. Ripping apart from the bones meat, chewable intestines and tofu in aromatic broth. Taste-wise, truly delicious though I would have appreciated if broth would have been piping hot. Still, upon spooning broth into my mouth, I knew it was pure and original, I mean not diluted with water, cooked without stinging on the essential herbs and wasn't as salty as some of the bkt's I have had at other restaurants. A hearty and tummy filling satisfying meal indeed. Settling the bill for  RM45.00, as we walked to our car parked at the back row, unanimously we agreed it was worth the drive all the way to Klang in the evening jam. Definitely I won't mind returning to Restaurant Chow Kiat or maybe, back to Klang but to other restaurants to compare against this bkt.
