Foo Soon Bak Kut Teh 富顺肉骨茶 @ Taman Sutera Utama, Johor Bharu
Johor is famous with its unique Bak Kut Teh, the Teo Chew styled Bak Kut Teh, which come with clear soup, but the taste is contradictory great with hint of herbal. There are few Bak Kut Teh restaurants in Johor are listed as the best Bak Kut Teh in Malaysia, namely Ah Soon, Mu Qing, Shi Hua and a few more. Looking for a decent meal within Taman Sutera, and noticed that there is quite a crowd in this restaurant which claims their speciality as Bak Kut Teh. We decided to give it a try as it will never be wrong to follow the crowd.
Foo Soon is having a corner shoplot, more to open-air concept, provide better ventilation.
|Claypot Bak Kut Teh 富顺砂锅肉骨茶 RM10/pax|
Foo Soon serves Bak Kut Teh in claypot, to keep the Bak Kut Teh warm throughout the dinner. Instead of pure pork rib, we have requested for a mixed version with pig intestine, pig stomach, enoki and beancurd skip, to add the variety in a pot. Although Foo Soon is not listed as one of the best, but the taste is actually excellent and above the average. The essence of Bak Kut Teh is the soup, just right to our taste, and as typical Johor styled- the soup base is clear but flavourful, especially good when I "banjir" my rice with the herbal based soup.
|Salted Vegetable 咸菜 RM3|
It has been a norm for us to order a little plate of salted vegetable whenever we are in a Bak Kut Teh restaurant, to open up the flavours and get ready my taste bud for the heavy meal.
|Steamed Century Chicken 清蒸菜园鸡 RM23 / Half Portion|
We have opted steamed chicken as the second main course. The smooth chicken is lightly steamed with soy sauce, rice wine and sesame oil, but ended up quite flavourful. The meat is silky smooth and tender, the taste is excellent with a dip into their garlic-ginger sauce.
If you notice their menu which shows wide variety of signature dishes, range from chicken to fish, Foo Soon is not only a Bak Kut Teh shop, but also good with many other dishes. Next round, I would like to try their fish too. Look forward to my next trip here!
