Wild Boar and I were looking for a good Bak Kut Teh for our lunch last Sunday. Of course , over here in Ipoh , there are many stalls selling Bak Kut Teh but they are not as good as the Klang Bak Kut Teh :). We decided to try this stall in Central Restaurant . After driving around for a parking ( 20 minutes) before we found one parking lot right in front of the restaurant. We almost wanted to give up eating at this place but thank God, we found one right in front of the shop :)
We ordered a portion for two persons and wow, it was a big portion with lots of ingredients ....all parts of the Piggy is in it...intestine, stomach, ribs, belly and trotters...hahahaha and I asked for extra beancurd skin (foo chok) and lots of spring onions and coriander ( this is what gives the bak kut teh the extra oomph ) The soup was flavorful and I would consider this bak kut teh as one of the best in town. The whole claypot of bak kut teh for two person costs RM18 with two bowls of rice. Extra serving of rice would be RM1.00 per bowl. We ordered two extra rice LOL! the bak kut teh was so good that I forgot about lesser intake of carbo and tucked in two bowls of rice. Yummy ! If you are in town, do drop by this bak kut teh stall in Central Restaurant ...it is one of the best I have thus eaten in Ipoh. You can pick and choose your choices of meat and parts for your bak kut teh. This is my personal opinion that it is one of the best I have eaten. Your opinion may differs from mine though :)
I love the trotters the best !
she can't help seeing us slurping down her bak kut teh soup
like nobody business...thus she brought over another
extra bowl of soup for free......!
