Klangites refer to this popular outlet as “Teluk Pulai bak kut teh” by virtue of its location. Stall-holder Oan Ah Lek says he uses about 12 types of herbs to brew his bak kut teh, a combination he arrived at after much experimentation. The concoction is then placed in a huge pot with the different cuts of meat and simmered together for at least two hours.
Oan’s bak kut teh is dished out the traditional way – he offers only the different cuts of meat and offals, served in bowls with the herbal soup. He avoids adding mushrooms and other ingredients as, he says, it will change the flavour of the brew. He does, however, oblige those who request for their bak kut teh to be served in a claypot (to retain the heat).
One also has a choice when it comes to the doneness of the meat: tender or not so tender, the latter is simmered for just 45 minutes. Thick and dark, the soup is redolent of herbs and is very tasty. This Hokkien-style bak kut teh is considered the authentic version.
The shop is a well-known pit stop for many Chinese politicians when they attend functions in Klang. Business peaks between 10am and 3pm.
