Ah Sang Bak Kut Teh, Sungai Way

Whenever my family craves for Bak Kut Teh, and is too lazy to travel all the way to Klang, we will only go to this restaurant
The famous Ah Sang Bak Kut Teh

Ah Sang Bak Kut Teh is run by a small family from Ipoh. They have been around for decades. We discovered this restaurant by accident many years back. And now we still patron this Bak Kut Teh restaurant quite frequetnly

Note: If possible, patron this shop only only weekdays/off peak hour. They get really crowded, and some of their side dish such as fu zhuk (fried bean curd skin) were out of stock. We couldn't even order a bowl of oil rice so we had to settle with white rice =( (We arrived there at 10.30am, so imagine the crowd!)
Even though you may spot a few foreign worker helping out in the kitchen, however, the owner's family are often spotted cooking and preparing the broth, thus the quality of the Bak Kut Teh has been maintained all these while.

Once again, our family is a regular loyal customer here (we have been patronizing this restaurant for 8 years and counting) so we got the VIP room (air cond room lol)
What is Bak Kut Teh without You Zha Gwai (Dough Fritters)? Slightly crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy in the inside. 
The best part is when you dip the you zha gwai into the full-bodied flavourful soup .The soft dough will soak up all the flavor of the soup. You'll get an extra bowl of soup whenever you order a bowl of you zha gwai so that the soup won't be overly greasy
Vinegar Pork Trotter
I skipped these as I was never a fan of pork "spare parts"...
Bak Kut Teh topped with fu zhuk (fried beancurd sheets), tau fu pok, golden mushrooms, choy sum (sawi/Chinese mustard greens) and lots of pork mea and spare partsThe base of this soup is dark coloured, definitely not your traditional, "pure" bak kut teh you get in Klang

The taste was still the same as many years ago when we first patronized this restaurant.
The soup has a very rich herbal taste and smell, yet not too much until it becomes too bitter. The broth was cooked for hours to bring out the best of the flavours. The meat was really tender and flavourful, as a result from soaking in the flavourful broth for hours. You can request for lean meat only, or go for the normal lean and fat meat mix, or request for additional "spare parts"

My brother claim that the Bak Kut Teh here is much better than the one in Klang. But it is up to you to decide ;)

Our total bill came up to RM188. We ordered 13 bowls of rice, Bak Kut Teh for 9 pax, 3 bowls of dough fritters, one bowl of vinegar pork trotter and brought our own tea.
