Restoran Bah Kut Teh Shun Heng, Sunway Mas

No I did not spell BKT wrongly, just following their sign board.. Having BKT at Shun Heng was rather unplanned for as redv as looking at going somewhere further like serdang for food.. anyways, change of plans, decided to eat somewhere near instead. Dragon joined us too since she was around that area..
We reached there slightly after 12noon, and only 2 tables were occupied. Hmm, maybe not such a good choice for lunch? The reason for us to pop over to Shun Heng was due to the fact that it serves dry BKT and since redv and dragon have never tried dry BKT before, might as well try here (rather than driving to Klang)..
My second time trying dry BKT since my first trying in Klang. The orders took some time to come, though not extremely slow..
The BKT was served first. The soup was fine, quite herby, though not sufficiently bitter (foo kum in cantonese) for me. The meat (of lean, ribs and mixed fatty types) were tender and does not 'stick in your teeth' as redv pointed out. Although it was not as good as those in Klang, dragon do find Shun Heng's better than some BKT shops in PJ.
We were served with white rice mixed with fried shallots. Looks pretty that I had to take a picture of it..Texture was just right.
And finally, the dry BKT..Ok la, ada standard (there's a level of quality) compared to the one I had in Klang (which I dont know where I went, an uncle brought me to a kampung which I was totally lost). The meat (lean and short ribs) were tender, heavily infused with the intense flavour of sliced cuttlefish, dried chillies, okra and onions. Stir fry with dark soy sauce and sugar, you hardly get any gravy, but just a coat of sticky, caramelised, fragrant sauce enveloping the meat..I was told that the meat used were the same as those served for soup BKT, hence it was so tender. For those who are not willing to drive to Klang to have dry BKT, I think Shun Heng's dry BKT does a pretty fine version of it.
Finish the meal with a hot pot of chinese tea on a rainy afternoon..ahhh, wonderful. hehe. Total bill was RM34 (BKT for 3 ppl, 4 plates of rice and pot of chinese tea).
What Julianne thinks?
Tasty and filling

xiu long bao: really? it's very different frm the norm BKT though..wah, yam rice with BKT..hard to find in PJ *drools*

tummythoz: yup, hard to get yam rice..haha, you are not the only one who cant accept dry BKT. some of my klang frens have the same opinion too ;)

tankiasu: there's quite a number of BKT shops at Sunway Mas, but this is the only one that serves both the soupy and dry versions. Not too high expectations on the soup BKT ar, not as good as those in klang..;p

I'm embarrassed to say that I've lived in Klang for over 10 years and have yet to try dry BKT. :-( Now that I am not in Klang anymore, I shall have to check out this place. It certainly looks really delicious! Thx for the review!!

For good BKT, Klang is just 15 minutes away from from the Damansara Toll gate.

There are also some good ones in SS14 if Klang is too far for you. Andrew Mr. Nismo, if you're reading this, take SC to the teowchew BKT shop next to the Hyundai showroom.
