Recently we returned to the Bak Kut Teh Stall in Masiling that we have been patronizing sometimes back and was utterly disappointed by the lacklustre soup served. Are our taste buds expecting more now or is it that the standard had dropped drastically? It seems to be the latter as the crowd in the coffeeshop was no longer the same.Anyway, it did not stop us from going further looking out for Herbal Bak Kut Teh. There were so many BKT stall out there but Leong Kee is one of the long-standing ones
Anyway, it did not stop us from going further looking out for Herbal Bak Kut Teh. There were so many BKT stall out there but Leong Kee is one of the long-standing ones that i have heard. Leong Kee situated in one of the corner shop house along Geylang Lorong 11. There are alot of media articles plaster on the walls outside the eating place over the years, raving about the food they served. Eating space is rather limited, there are only a few tables and chairs along the shop's perimeter. A sip of the soup had tell me this is the right one! Herbal soup was not overwhelming and makes a satisfying meal. We ordered 2 rice, 1 Bak Kut Teh, 1 Dry Bak Kut Teh and 1 bowl of fried fritters at $27.9. Meat was infused with herbal taste and ingredients were generous. Items include liver, belly, intestines, stomach, vegetables and tau pok. Perhaps one more items that I would like to see in the pot is button mushrooms. Don't worry about the texture. It falls from the bone easily and even its liver was cooked to perfection, texture was just right and not too hard. Do not forget to order their You Tiao / dry fritters to soaked up the essence of the herbal soup. Dry Bak Kut Teh is laudable. If you can take abit of spiciness, do have a try. Served sizzling and intensively flavoured in the earthen claypot, once its get served, we were engulfed by its aroma. Its savoury sweet sauce makes a perfect marriage to the bowls of white rice we had ordered. Not only that, it does strikes a right punch of sweet and spiciness. If you are wondering what are the curly stripes garnishing together with dried chili and coriander. They are one of the pulling factor of the entire dish as cuttlefish gave out a good fragrant. The meat were tender and evenly coated in the sauce. We sink our teeth onto the nice softly texture and enjoy every bite of it. To name a few Klang Style Bak Kut Teh in Singapore, I felt that Leong Kee's has the best taste so far even though there are better ones out there. So glad that this has fixed my craving for Herbal BKT.
