I am one of those who love a good meal of bak kut teh. Everyday if I could and I know I did it for 7 straight days without complaining (had to stop because the hubster said he had overdosed on it). While for some the meat seals the deal for them, the simplicity of a meal with soup works for me. On one random run around town, I stumbled upon Ang Hock Bak Kut Teh in Jalan Tiong Nam. Ol skool with a perfect balance of meaty goodness and herbs. Of course a team of very funny but nice Hokkien folks selling it and insist that I speak in Hokkien (I reckon I look Hokkien these days?)

No frills in the shop. You order what you like. Claypot or regular porcelain bowls to go with your choice parts. I like my bak kut teh served piping hot and to remain warm till my last mouthful so its definitely claypot for me.

As for the parts, it really depends who I am eating with. Some pals love their fatty bits, others love the ribs or soft bones. Thus far visiting between 7am and 930am, we have been getting our choice parts. The folks here are very generous with their soup. Its always a refill after refill after refill. Generous big bowls too!

Simplicity rules here so its only beancurd skin to go with your bak kut teh. I do wish for mushrooms too but I can live without it because the soup is sooooo comforting and good. 

Take your pick of white rice or yao fan (flavoured rice). The latter being my preferred choice and its so good, I normally opt for a second bowl. 

No vegetable here unless you consider the coriander as vegies:P A must go with your bak kut teh will be yau char kwai or chinese crullers. Simple and nothing fancy but it works well to compliment the meal.

Not the priciest. Not the cheapest. Each meal in claypot averages out to be RM14 per person including tea and rice but its definitely fair value considering the recent rising prices for food (especially after the GST).
