Tag / fatty pork

Let’s get back on the project of trying as many bak kut teh as possible in the birth land of this amazing dish – Klang. Today we take a look at one of the small guys – an unassuming small corner restaurant near Klang Parade by the name of Restoran Xin Lai Hing.

We chanced upon this relative newcomer to the bkt scene in Klang while visiting one of our regular Vietnamese kopitiam at the area and thought to give it a try. Interestingly, in addition to bak kut teh, they actually also serve a small selection of Vietnamese dishes here, though we did not have an opportunity to sample those.

For the two of us, we ordered a 1.5 portion of clay pot bak kut teh with a mixture of kahwan (around the ankle) and intestine. The dish comes with piping hot soup that is pretty strong in herbal aroma with a slight bitter note which I find quite pleasing. There isn’t much peppery note which may or may not suit individual taste but I do find it pretty good.

The meat is probably softer and more tender than most I had, and you can definitely cut it with a spoon, quite delightful as the fatty bit melts in your mouth. I also like the fact that the small intestine is stuffed with even more intestine, perfect for offal lovers.

There’s some tofu skin and a bit of tofu pok as well as few leaves of fresh vege in the soup, enough to give it a false sense of balanced meal, who cares?

If you’re up to some really soft and tender pork, this is one that won’t disappoint.
