Ah Wang Bak Kut Teh, Old Klang Road

On the way back from my kampung recently, we decided to stop for dinner before returning to our respective homes..
I'm craving for braised pork trotter in vinegar my brother exclaimed. Hmm, I thought females would crave for sour stuff, not males?
Anyways, he already had somewhere in mind, so I just let him drive to where ever we may be going..
We ended at a side off a main road, right next to a flyover.
But looking at the crowd, I'm quite assured that food should be at least, mediocre in taste.
There's no sign board indicating the name of this place, but I soon found out it's Ah Wang BKT. Which I assume we'll at least have a claypot of BKT.
Surprisingly, my brother only ordered the pork trotter vinegar and steamed fish head...
The BKT's just so-so.. the other dishes are better..
I took a look around, one thing's for sure- every table had a plate of steamed fish head.
It was still very early for dinner actually, and since we're still full, we decided to have only 2 dishes. Meat and meat. Freaking carnivores :p
My brother's pork trotter in vinegar(RM8)..
Ah Wang's version was pretty satisfying. It was sour, yet had a wonderful lingering aroma of vinegar. It lacked the fragrance of gula melaka (I dont think they added that), but for a pure black vinegar trotter with sugar- this was a tasty dish. The meat's rather solid, I would have preferred it softer. Leave this dish a tad longer (and cooler) and the vinegar seeps further into the meat which was better.
The steamed fish head (RM21)..
The steamed soong fish head was extremely fresh. Steaming time was perfect, hence the fish flesh was smooth, and the fish fats were meltingly good. The fish belly area was absolutely scrumptious- there was no muddy taste as it was fresh and the fats were so springy yet dissolved quickly when it's in my mouth. Delicious. I liked the fact that the fish was not drowned in ginger paste- I could easily savour the sweetness of the fish which paired nicely with the just sufficient sauce. There's also other sauces to choose from- with soy/ plain steamed / assam.
Ah Wang BKT is located at Batu 4 1/2, Jalan Kelang Lama, KL. If you drive past Pearl Point( on your right, opposite road), drive a further 200- 300 metres and you'll see Ah Wang on your left. Across the road from Ah Wang is a chinese school. I cant recall the school name though.

hahaha ...the fish head's good. the assam version also nice.
but i feel the BKT and Vinegar Pork Trotter somewhat lacking.
