Can you believe that this is my first bak kut teh review? LOL... well I don't normally fancy bak kut teh as it contained all the layers of skin, fat and meat but gimme the soup!!! I usually take meat in moderation and currently I'm trying to lose some weight. *sobs* No choice as I find it really hard to lift myself up in certain yoga asanas (poses). It's no fun carrying so much weight and they're all my own... my weak arms can't take them all in! I'm gonna keel over drooling at my fellow floggers delish pictures. *SOBS*
Anyway, back to this place, Yew Kee. It's located along Taman Midah's wai sek kai (hawker lane parallel with Jalan Midah Besar), a corner lot at a lane in between two blocks of shophouses. Hubby brought me here a few times and we can't help but notice the owner keep changing to newer models of Toyota Camry!
Hubby did the ordering of yuk kuat (meaty part of pork ribs) and intestine combo in a claypot that came with beancurd sticks, shitake and enoki mushrooms and baby corn. I've asked for yau char kwai (deep fried crullers) and tau pok (a type of beancurd) too.
The herbal soup here do have the strong dong guai (angelica) flavour and we lapped them all up including the extra bowl that we've requested. I find it nice and warm for my tum. The yuk kuat is all tender up just the way we both liked them without the fatty parts.
All that plus 2 bowls of white rice with a pot of Tit Kuan Yin tea costed us RM24.80.
