Hong Ji Claypot Bak Kut Teh Review
What is your preference? Herbal Claypot Bak Kut Teh? Teochew Peppery Bak Kut Teh? Or Klang dried herbal Bak Kut Teh?
Hong Ji Claypot Bak Kut Teh belongs to the rarer herbal type, besides the bak kut (pork ribs), the claypot comes with Tau Pok (deep fried dried bean curd) and mushrooms.
The stall is never short of the media exposure, the accolades are prominently displayed all over the signboard and all way out to catch your attention.
The beauty of using claypot for Bak Kut Teh is the ability to seal the heat and moisture, creating a tender and flavourful dish that enticed the tastebuds. When the claypot was served, we can smell the herb aroma from the bubbling hot claypot.
The soup has been steeped in the herbs but the medicinal taste was mild and faint, good enough to stimulate the taste buds and yet not evinced a strong herb aftertaste. The pork ribs were tender and easily rip off from the bone, giving it a variation in texture that is very pleasant. Every piece of the pork rib came with chunky of meat; it gave the perception of good value of just eating bone. The added deep fried Tau Pok was of good quality with fine texture and the mushroom gives the claypot extra valuation.
Hong Ji has not neglected the side dishes as well; we ordered the salted mustard which was well cooked to perfect saltiness and texture.
Hong Ji Claypot Bak Kut Teh Our verdict:
The herbal soupy Bak Kut Teh may not be as prevalent as the peppery Teochew Bak Kut Teh or dry herbal Klang Bak Kut Teh, however, the bowl of claypot soup was equally tantalizing, when we emptied the pot of Bak Kut Teh, the claypot was still hot when touch, it warms our hearts as well for a satisfactory meal.
