Yap Chuan Dry Bak Kut Teh, Puchong Utama

Alright how many people have heard of Dry Bak Kut Teh?  I see quite a few people with their hands up.  Ok then.  How many of you know that Dry Bak Kut Teh originated from Puchong?  I see several hands in the air.  One last question.  How many of you know that Dry Bak Kut Teh was invented by a 14-year old kid?  Got you stumped, eh?

Truth is I'm not sure how true what I just wrote is but it makes for an interesting story.  I've been wanting to come to this place since I saw it on Taste with Jason many months back.  So one Sunday night I did.

Yap Chuan Dry Bak Kut Teh, Puchong
Dry (RM9 per person) and Wet (RM8 per person).

We ordered both the dry and soup versions.  There's nothing much to say about the soup Bak Kut Teh.  Pretty standard stuff.  The star of the night of coz is the Dry Bak Kut Teh.

So what exactly is Dry Bak Kut Teh?  Well for starters if you're imagining a version of Bak Kut Teh which tastes the same as normal BKT only with a lot less soup then you're absolutely wrong!  In fact the Dry Bak Kut Teh is anything but Bak Kut Teh.

Dry Bak Kut Teh is basically pork cooked in a claypot with lots of dried chillis and pieces of ladies fingers with a lot of dark soya sauce and some oyster sauce.  Maybe it's just me but I felt that the whole dish is basically flavored by excessive amounts of dark soya sauce.  If they used any herbs or spices to give the dish any distinctive flavour then it must have been overpowered by the dark soya sauce.

Prices are BKT standard (and somehow BKT is never cheap) but the serving is on the smaller side.  I doubt I'll return for another visit.

People who liked it a lot more than I did:
