Restaurant Bah Kut Teh Fook Hin @ Sri Kembangan

 

My usual foodie buddy told me that Foodeverywhere should venture to Equine Park. There is this area where there are many famous restaurants with many reviews online. One of which is those Bah Kut Teh shops. This place with lots of shops that sells almost the same thing according to reviews online. We decided to go with Fook Hin since it seems to be getting quite a bit of reputation, and I honestly have no idea yet of which one is the best.

Upon entering the restaurant, both Juwin and I instantly got hooked and attracted with the amount of clams in the tank. My craving for the Shiong Tong Lala instantaneously prevails and that was the first thing I ordered despite our ultimate agenda which is Bah Kut Teh.

For some reason, the clams lack natural sweetness of fresh seafood, and the entire dish was disappointedly bland. On the other hand, the Bah Kut Teh wasn’t that bad. This saves their reputation from the disappointment at the first dish.

The ingredients were generously luscious for 2 people and the distinct diversity between the usual and the ones here is that it is served with quite generous amount of meats and innards. Also, instead of simple iceberg lettuce leaves, the pot is served sprinkled with coriander.

Then followed by the Salted Mantis Prawn and I didn’t quite fancy it. For some reason, this restaurant has got one major problem keeping their seafood fresh. The clamp was already a disappointment with both the taste and the freshness of those clamps and these prawns seemed to have the same problem with the freshness. The cooking method was okay, I love the crispy deep fried prawn shell with all those flavours of slight spicy and salty. However, the freshness is off. Total boo at that.

This place is simple, and caters quite an amount of dinners too. Really neat and acceptable level of hygiene. I have no idea of what’s with the whole combination of seafood dishes and Bah Kut Teh. But they should probably focus on one.

But then again, it is probably the cultural palate of residents around this area. Reason being, almost all the restaurant s here is this combination.

When looking at these tanks, I can’t help but to wonder if these are those ingredients served on our table. Absolutely off the fresh level.

With the benefit of doubt, I might revisit but chances would be rather slim.

    Well, I guess they should stick with BKT. It is sad to see how well they parade the seafood and yet the outcome is the opposite.

    To be frank there are a lot of restaurants in Seri Kembangan area but only a handful is good. The rest are mostly overrated. Thanks for the honest review.

    The BKT looks good and the rest of the dishes too. I hear that those things in tha tanks may have been there for a long time so they would have lost the sweetness – no so nice anymore.

    I don’t eat seafood much especially those that come from these tanks, it’s like eating their family members right in front of them 😦 BKT looks really good with plenty of ingredients, perfect for a rainy day like today. Yum!

      Lol!! Eating their family members infront of them…quite true.. Seafood is good only if they are fresh..otherwise it would be rather pointless even if the cooking method is awesome. Hartamas has got one that’s pretty simple and fresh. From a stall… are u aware? Cause mont kiara not much chinese food ya… 😦

        Oh I think I know which one you are referring to. Yeah the choices in MK is pretty limited, you have steam room (mediocre) and then probably Food village in Publika (decent lah). Not complaining though, we have suki ya and sushi zanmai! Hahaha
