Chuan 100% Klang Bak Kut Teh - SS 14/2 Subang Jaya

Can someone count the number of BKT shops in Jalan SS14/2, Subang Jaya ? This is the third shop that I had patronised. The others are Yu Kee and Chuan Chiew. The unique dishes from this particular shop are their Curry Shark and Teochew Shark.

Klang Bak Kut Teh was the food for fishermen in yesteryear. Solid lean meat for the muscles, fat for the chilly mornings/nights and herbs that promote the general well-being of the person. How's that! With the shark on the menu it may just remind the consumers to credit the fisherman's community that roll out the BKT so that they can eat it to live and fish. Now BKT is a favourite of the carnivorous urban dwellers pigging out at BKT declaring their intention that they live to eat, adulterating the altruistic intentions  of these early pioneers.

Curry Shark. The meat was soft and may have been overcooked. Part of it kind of disintegrated to thicken the curry gravy. The taste was great but could have been better if the shark meat were firmer.
 BKT Innards. The soup is dark and murky but not too herbal as many detest it.
 Crullers. Favourite addition to the rice for those addicted to carbohydrate .
 Classic BKT.
 Braised Trotters. Great with plain rice. The gravy was fantastic.
 And for those who like Chicken cooked in wine.
