Ah Wang Bak Kut Teh @ Old Klang Road

Right after the chilling session, we headed to Old Klang Road for supper. Man, by this time the clock was already showing 2am. The fact is that we should not eat anything by this time knowing that it was too late for any food. However, our taste bud and cravings got the upper hand.

Been hearing Hock Beng mentioning about this stall weeks ago and supposedly they were famous for their Steamed Fish and Bak Kut Teh.
The road signboard was the famous landmark for this stall

The stall was located just by the busy road of the Old Klang Road. You could see a long stretch of an erected hut canopy from the road side.

Even though it was at 2am, the place was still fairly crowded. This really proves that Malaysians just love food.
While at 2am

We ordered a Sicap Steamed medium size fish head. After 25 minutes, the fish was being served on the table.
Black Bean Sauce Steamed Sung Fish Head (RM 24)
This style of steaming was called the Sicap style in Cantonese. The gravy was heavily flavoured with black bean sauce and drizzled heavily with chili padis and garlics. I find the sauce was too salty and it lacks the sweetness. Making things worse, the fish smelled kinda fishy and with some hint of "muddy" taste.
Was it because of the Kilkenny or maybe the fish was not that fresh? Honestly, I don't really enjoy eating it. I kept on eating it to check whether do I have a problem with my taste bud on that night. But in the end, I suppose it was the fish.

Bak Kut Teh (RM 8 per pax)
Their soup was very clear and not thick. It is not the same version as those being served in Klang area. The soup was mildly flavoured but the hint of the Bak Kut Teh herbs was still there. Those that dislikes thick BKT soup will definitely love this version. However, the servings portion for 2 pax were rather small.

We paid RM 47 for the dishes above that includes 4 bowl of rice and Chinese tea. The fish was just very average but the Bak Kut Teh really stands out. However, I do felt very thirsty and keep on gulping water after the meal. Since I'm a person that am very sensitive to heavy usage of MSG and would result in extreme thirstiness, I suppose they used a lot of MSG in their dishes!

Steamed Fish: 5/10 (non-halal)
Bak Kut Teh: 7/10 (non-halal)

Atmosphere: 5/10
Price: 6/10
Verdict: The fish was forgettable but the Bak Kut Teh was really memorable!
