I'm a big fan of meat, especially good ol' Bak Kut Teh. Where better to have some delectable meaty Bak Kut Teh than one of the authentic ones in Klang. This time around, my foodie adventures landed me in Fong Keow (Pottery) Bak Kut Teh Restaurant @ Taman Intan Klang Selangor to savour their yummy dishes. They serve some really nice seafood dishes too on top of the meat dishes. Check out below on what we had that evening.

|Comfy, air-conditioned ambiance to dine in|
The restaurant has been around for decades, one of the very long standing bak kut teh restaurant in the vicinity. Only recently did they do an extensive renovation, and with that they have introduced various other dishes, in particular seafood and many delectable Chinese cuisine. No longer are you stuck with only meat, but there's seafood, clams, and a whole lot more to savour at Fong Keow (Pottery) Bak Kut Teh Restaurant.
|Unique, Burdock Tea|
Any Chinese restaurant worth its salt would serve authentic tea to appease its diners while they wait for their dishes to be served. We had the pleasure to try out this very unique tasting Burdock tea, which had a savoury gin seng taste to it. Not my perfect choice to pair with Bak Kut Teh though, as I am more inclined to order the usual jamine tea.

Signature, yummy Bak Kut Teh - RM27 for 2pax
Served in a jiffy, we had Fong Keow's signature Bak Kut Teh, served claypot style. No frills, just plain ol' goodness, we had a choice of different parts of meat to be included into the pot, with delicious BKT broth inside. The dish is complemented with bean curds, button mushrooms and tau fu pok. What sets a good BKT dish apart from the rest would be the broth, and it's safe to say the one at Fong Keow is one of the better ones.
|My favourite, the dry Bak Kut Teh - RM29|
Up next, my favourite for the night, the dry version Bak Kut Teh. Filled to the brim with pork ribs, I love the intense flavour of this dish. Sweet and slightly spicy, inside there's this springy cuttlefish, ladies finger, doused in very nice black sauce. It was good albeit a tad too watery, leaving it on the stove for a while longer would have been perfect.
|Drunken Clams - RM25|
|Another picture of the drunken clams, just because...|
Sourced from their supplier at Pulau Ketam, we had one of their new dishes, the Drunken Clams. Served in a rather large wooden platter, it was good. Inside, the mix of strong wine, ginger and chili padi gives out tasty flavour to the broth. Not bad at all, for the price.
|Sauteed Oyster Mushroom With Prawn - RM20|
Up next we tried the next dish, the Sauteed Oyster Mushroom With Prawn. Love how the freshly peeled prawns went so well with the soft and tasty mushrooms. Sauteed and stir fried, good dish to go along with rice.
|Golden Sand Bean Curd (Kam Sa Tau Foo) - RM12|
Crispy on the outside, soft bean curd on the inside. Another recommended dish from Fong Keow would be this Golden Sand Bean Curd (Kam Sa Tau Foo). The outer layer is coated with salted eggs, which is then stir fried with chilli leaves, giving out that beautiful aroma.
|Crispy Chicken with Thai Sauce - RM20|
The Crispy Chicken with Thai Sauce was served next. I've had better ones though, as I did feel the chicken did not have enough flavour to it. The breaded chicken indeed crispy though, and when taken with the accompanied Thai sauce, everything is good again. I think its the sauce that makes this dish good.
|Green Dragon Vegetable aka Royale Chives - RM13|
A different type of green vegetables, one which I haven't had in a while. We tried the Green Dragon Vegetable aka Royale Chives, which I was told comes from Cameron Highlands. Love how the chef stir fried it to perfection. So the next time you are on the look out for good bak kut teh, in an air conditioned environment, with seafood, and delicious chinese cuisine dishes, just head on to Fong Keow (Pottery) Bak Kut Teh Restaurant @ Taman Intan Klang Selangor. I know I'm satisfied.
