“What is the most expensive breakfast you have tried?”. For us, it is not in any fancy Italian nor Michelin-starred Hong Kong Dimsum restaurant, but in a Chinese Bak Kut Teh (BKT) restaurant. Today, we bring you to Chai Chin 才进肉骨茶 restaurant (GPS: 4.22163,100.69361) in Sitiawan for its signature fish head and of course, the BKT. Is it worth the Cha-Ching? Let’s find out.
Have you ever encountered a situation where there is a good food but at the same time you need to sacrifice for bad environment? How far you willing to accept the tradeoff? An example will be Bak Kut Teh at Xie Hong Coffee Shop 协丰茶餐室 at Bukit Mertajam old town.
I was wondering where to get dry bak kut teh in Penang island, and my friend recommended me this stall located opposite of Tesco Extra Sungai Dua, inside Seong Huat Coffee Shop 祥发美食餐室.
Jiak Wong (食王) Bak Kut Teh is very common in northern region. Back to my hometown in Sungai Petani, there were two stalls having the same name. The same applies to Bukit Mertajam. I am not sure whether or not they have any relationship. Thinking of comparing those in BM, I visited 食王 (槟城) Good Master (Penang) recently.
There are occasions in which you will be given tough questions, even by the restaurant’s host. There were only few reasons I could think of when a Bak Kut Teh restaurant’s asked you why you need more soup:
- Use as holy water and put it in bath tub
- Wash my car
- Take it back, reverse engineer and open a new Bak Kut Teh shop.
New Lane is located in Penang town area. It has some yummy hawker food there. It had been a while since I been there and recently I was brought by my friends (total five of us) to visit a restaurant there – Qian Li Xiang (千里香巴生肉骨茶).
After attending friend’s wedding dinner in the evening, I stayed overnight at Petaling Jaya. Cheap labor like me used to wake up early, including holiday. After visiting a jogging place in PJ, I ventured around to see if there was any restaurant for early breakfast. I then stopped by this Restaurant Grandpa at Taman Paramount for Bak Kut Teh.
If you ask me what I did during Chinese New Year, here the list:
Yes, it is all about eating, including this Zealand Bak Kut Teh which I visited during CNY at Gurney Drive.
If you asked me where the hell I went these few days… basically I was busy moving house until balls dropped. Poor slave like me always being kicked out from rented units due to various reasons. Sigh~ Anyway, this is a review which I should post it one month ago – Ke Xiang Klang Bak Kut Teh (巴生奇香肉骨茶) near Megamall, Prai, Penang. A group of floggers including me went there and I still remembered how tasty the dried Bak Kut Teh was.
