We tried Heng Kee Bak Kuh Teh few weeks ago, I remember it was New Year's night and wow.. da whole place was so packed and crowded that some who came later than 8pm got to stand for some time to get a table. Heng Kee sounds familiar to you? Yeaps, it's located at PJ Old Town and it has been here for as long as da PJ folks know. Fiance told me that he used to come here so often when he was a kid and he missed da big tree that used to be located inside this corner Restaurant. I have never seen da tree he mentioned cause da first time I ever tasted their Bak Kuh Teh was 4 years ago. Anyone of you remember there's a tree?
"Yau Char Kwai" is a must have item for me when having Bak Kuh Teh, I simply enjoy dipping them into da soup, yummy!
I must say that Heng Kee's Bak Kuh Teh is rather different from others. First, it's not served by hot pot, all their porky dishes are served in bowl. Seriously, I never know how to order when comes to Bak Kuh Teh so da task was given to fiance and he ordered one bowl of Mixed Bak Kuk Teh. Now, what you see is what you get. There were plenty of Pork Ribs, so juicy and meaty, I absolutely love it. Pig's stomach and intestines were very well cleaned, no pee pee smell. As for da soup, I find it much better compare to previous years where it's much clearer now. However, fiance had a different point of view in which he prefer to have da strong flavour kind of soup as they used to serve.
What I like about Heng Kee is that I can order their Braised Mushroom separately. Unlike other places, Mushrooms were served few pieces and it's definitely no enough for me since I heart them so much! Amazing, their Braised Mushroom still as good as before, thumbs up!
Besides that, we also had Braised Beancurd. Oooo..... like da texture of it, so soft and crunchy at da same time, yummm.....
