Restoran Fong Keow (Pottery) Bak Kut Teh @ Klang

I know, I know, everyone has their own favourite bak kut teh shop in Klang so no comments there. Here's a write-up on my favourite stall Restoran Fong Keow at Taman Intan which I think sells the best concentrated bak kut teh =D JS disagrees, of course...
Shop Front
You can spot the shop immediately after you exit Federal Highway. I'd say they're doing pretty good business to be able to take over so many lots.
Yau Char Kwai
The yau char kwai here are crispy when eaten on its own but of course, it tastes best after having absorbed the herbal soup.
Yam Rice
The Yam Rice is very fragrant - you can smell the yam-my aroma even before the plate is set down. The addition of dark soya sauce helps make the rice look less bland and enhances the taste of yam. But I think I prefer white rice to better taste the herbal flavour of the soup.
Bak Kut Teh for 2
We had the full works - lean meat with lots of innards, beancurd skin, button mushrooms and iceberg lettuce. See how full the claypot is? It is filled to the brim with meat, meat and more meat. There was so much meat that it was quite hard for us to scoop the soup.
They were very generous with the amount of innards, namely pig intestines and pig stomach. JS doesn't take those so I very happily finished them all =D We also found a lot of lean meat in the claypot which had just the right proportion of fats to meat. It was so much that we could hardly finish it...we were arguing over who the last few pieces belonged to =P
Now the all important factor - how does the soup fare? I like mine super concentrated and at Fong Keow, the soup consistency is thick and full of herbal goodness and so so so concentrated. It's hard to explain...just try it out for yourself =P We asked for a refill halfway through and we finished the soup to the last drop. Now what does that tell you about the taste of Fong Keow bak kut teh? =D
See how concentrated the soup is?
So whenever you're wondering where is a good place for bak kut teh in Klang, just head on over to Restoran Fong Keow for a taste and (I hope) you'll be hooked =D

  1. I'm afraid I can't agree with you. Just had it for lunch today - could be just not so great today, I don't know. On a scale of 1 - 10, I can honestly give it only a 4 or 5. The top up soup was really disappointing. It had obviously watered down.

    1. Really? I've been eating there for a number of years now and it's been good so far - let me go try it again =P Any recommendations you have for good bkt? =)

    2. I agree with Anonymous, according to survey by my bakuteh kakis group,

      5 reasons to eat at Fung Keow Pottery BKT:
      1) VERY nice environment
      2) VERY lousy taste

      Everyday the shop also empty, only sometimes at night people cannot find food only go there bcoz only shop open & wing heong, it's 2nd choice after wing heong la...

    3. Is it really that bad? >.< Which one is your favourite then? I'd love to try even better bak kut teh than this!
