Bak Kut Teh talk ....

When it comes to Bak Kut Teh, I still preferred the traditional type over the claypot type. The traditional type are those that was prepared and brewed before it was served in a small bowl. I believe they brewed the soup too, for the claypot type but then, I think the soup is kinda diluted and not as fragrant compare to the former. However, no complains .... both are still good.

The claypot BKT, which usually have lots more ingredients like mushrooms and etc.


The traditional non- claypot BKT are much simpler with only the meat but the soup was very 'thick'

I had both types of BKT over a week and my preference is still the traditional BKT. Anyway, one problem is you tend to finish the soup very fast and needed to request to add more soup, which there may be extra charges.  How about you ?

Oh... this is not relevant but then, I love this dish which was served together with the claypot BKT - 

Claypot ginger chicken
It was nice and the ginger fragrant was all over the chicken meat, which brings me to a conclusion that the dry version of  BKT should be nicer in claypot. :)

  5. The traditional type is what KK, Sabah serves! Yeah, there are less and less places serving it nowadays! I prefer claypot coz it's easier to eat, but it's fun to have the traditional type too - as long as you have a big table coz all the small bowls can crowd around if there's a lot of people.

  6. hmmm, i am quite okay with the claypot BKT because i like the soup hot and with the claypot the temperature kind of remain for a longer time.. but for me when it comes to BKT, it must have the soup it is supposed to have lah, i do not like those "dry version" or any other varied flavor..
