Let’s get the “trying to try all the bak kut teh in Klang” project going again, this time, we look at Eng Chun bak kut teh at Taman Berkeley, which is located right across the road from the more famous Samy & Ah Her bak kut teh.
Eng Chun Bak Kut Teh, located at Taman Berkeley
The restaurant set up is like most of the traditional old school Klang bkt – single bowl with the choice of cut you want, to go with rice and maybe some chili padi. Of course, Chinese tea is just about the only option for drinks, choose from the type of tea leaves they provide, order a glass, or if you’re a proper Klang resident – bring your own tea leaves.
a single portion of “big bone” cut, rice, and chili padi
For lunch, I chose one of my usual cuts – big bone, and was greeted with a chunky piece of meat that isn’t the most representative of what big bone should look like, but it is a correct cut nonetheless. The meat turned out to be quite soft, with the fatty part plenty delicious enough for me.
Eng Chun is one of those places that doesn’t serve a lot of food, but they are thick and very herbal, not very different from Samy & Ah Her across the road, but perhaps less peppery. A worthy competitor to be honest, despite getting maybe only half the amount of customers compared to the the more glamourous shop.
simple meal for simple man, isn’t it?
If you’re already a fan of the type of bak kut teh serves by the likes of Ah Her or Mo Sang Kor, you will enjoy Eng Chun’s interpretation of this Klang’s famous dish. A single portion of meat is RM 10, and additional RM 1 for rice, so a meal can be had for slightly lower than RM 12 here.
