The week before Chinese New Year, my 'heng tai' Kurau King invited us down to Klang to yum cha and collect something he pre-ordered for us. He is one of those true locals of Klang. He grew up in Port Klang. Hence, he knows the good food places around Port Klang.
Anyway, this time round, he brought us to the all famous Mo Sang Kor Bak Kut Teh 毛山稿肉骨茶 in Pandamaran, Klang.
This place resembles some small shack that isn't that well kept. The tables are those unstable plastic tables found in 'real' hawker stalls. Anyway, we ordered a combination of some fatty meat and lean meat to share among us. The bak kut teh at this place comes in individual bowls.
I am personally not a fan of fat. Hence I opted for the lean meat. The others kept going on about 'I'm not eating it if there's no fat in it'. Oh well, hopefully they don't end up contributing to the income of doctors in the near future.
This was my bowl of bak kut teh. I have to say, although limited in soup quantity, that small bowl tasted extraordinarily good. The soup was thick and had that nice meaty and herb flavour. Some people prefer the more liquid type of bak kut teh. I personally don't mind either. As it was lean meat, the meat didn't have that soft melt in your mouth texture. However, the soup was good enough to send me asking for me.
Unfortunately, bak kut teh restaurants in Klang have this tendency to NOT GIVE OUT MORE SOUP! In some places, you might even end up getting scolded for asking for more soup. Thus, we were playing the 'who dares to ask for more soup' game. Eventually, KK volunteered. Thankfully he didn't get scolded. However, he received the cold treatment with a slight nod. Alas, the soup never did make it to our table. They were determine not to give out any extra soup, and we were too afraid to ask again (alright, they weren't as scary as I portrayed them to me, but one wouldn't get any extra soup at this place).
After stuffing ourselves with one of the best bak kut teh I know of, we sat down to 'yum cha' for a bit. I somehow took this picture of KK pouring tea.
The bak kut teh was priced at RM7 per bowl (doesn't matter what cut of meat is required). I find the price very reasonable. One could also buy the prepacked herbs at Mo Sang Kor.
Although distance is a restrain, I would certainly come back to this place in the future. Special thanks to KK for paying for the meal AGAIN! I will have to treat him one day.
Restaurant Rating: 8/10 (I woud have considered giving them 8.5 if they had given me more soup)
Pricing: About RM10 per person
