Restoran Ah Her & Samy Bak Kut Teh

Restoran Ah Her & Samy Bak Kut Teh (亚火三美肉骨茶) is a popular dining spot at Taman Berkeley, Klang. The proprietor of this restaurant also operates another shop at Pandamaran in the evening.
Bak kut teh (肉骨茶) enthusiasts - which includes most Chinese townsfolk in Klang - have deeply rooted philosophy why certain part of the swine is the best for this dish. The price is RM10.00 per bowl irrespective of primal cut.
One school of thought likes pork leg (小骨), which is the back section of rear trotter. The fatty tissues around the fibula is considered a delicacy to many. Meanwhile, the herbal soup is very rich and satisfying to my palate.
Pork belly (五花肉) is also in popular demand. This section of the swine has a complex combination of lean and fatty meat. Although pork belly is served with same herbal soup as before, its higher composition of lean meat causes the soup to play a smaller role.
We also sampled a bowl of pork oviduct (生肠) and chicken feet (鸡爪). While the latter is rather uninteresting, I feel that pork oviduct is delectable indeed. Unlike intestines, the oviduct lining is more delicate in texture.
We wanted to order our favorite pork knee (脚腕, RM10.00) today, but the server mentioned that it is sold out even though we arrived quite early. It turns out that the she has lied to us because another customer whom we shared table with was able to order pork knee later.
Chinese tea is provided in packets of dried tea leaves. Our usual choice of tea to go with bak kut teh is Kimkwanyin (金观音, RM4.00). Hot water is provided in boiling kettles around the dining area, which I think is a safety hazard.
