I’ve been spoilt by Klang bak kut teh(BKT) ever since LC and I have been dating and nothing in KL comes close to what our favorite, Bak Kut Teh Yap Chuan has to offer.

Looking at the photo is giving me BKT cravings, oh dear.

The BKT soup here is a beautiful concoction of spice heavy broth with hints of pepper. Some BKT soup can be a little glutenous and thick from all the simmering pork fat but Yap Chuan’s is smooth onthe tongue and warm inthe tummy. This is a one person portion of a fatty and lean pork mixture accompanied by lots of fu chuk andtaufu pok.We probably had 3 refills of soup this time around, not because we were cheapskate but because the soup was that good. I’d probably never be able to find anotherBKT like the oneserved here.

The highlight of Yap Chuan however is the dry BKT. Essentially a dry braised pork with okra and four angled bean, it’sseasoned with thick soy sauce, lots of dried chilli and dried cuttlefishbearing noresemblance to the soupy BKT. The caramelised sweet and salty sauce with a hint of spiciness coats the meat beautifully ridding it of any porky smell. Though I’d admit Yap Chuan’s dry BKT can be a bit inconsistent unlike their soupy BKT – sometimes there’s not enough smokiness, sometimes it’s too dry – it is still the best I’ve had.
