The Owner has the most
terrible-est-test taste in food.
Last Sunday, he introduced the worse bak kut teh on the planet to me and called it the best. *gag* Seriously lah. The best? Backside! The place cannot make it until super fail dot com and he summore dare tell me that it's the best. Kononnya authentic BKT. Pfft! So fail.
Come, I tell you why fail.
(Actually, you wanna hear,
dun wanna hear also have to listen cos
I'm gonna get it off my chest. Haha!)
Firstly, they didn't offer us a selection of Chinese teas. The dude just took our order to 'chung cha' and then walked away. Wth. I had to call him back to ask what types of tea they had. Then, when they brought us the tea, they didn't bring the usual +1 teacup. Double wth. Eh hello, this is Chinese tea lah. What kind of Chinese kopitiam that serves bak kut teh dunno how to serve Chinese tea with +1 teacup wan?!
Secondly, the place is DAMN UNHYGIENIC. You see, I was seated next to a window and what I didn't know was that beyond that window, was an old man. Suddenly, he began coughing and coughing and coughing like nobody's business. I mean, ok lah. Uncle, I know you're old and I'm sorry time went by and did that to you. But still... when coughing time close mouth can?? Aiyerrr. Beh tahan. Summore when he cough hor, it's the kind of cough where you can hear his phlegm flapping back and forth in his throat. AIYEERRR! Geli me until heart attack die lah, I tell you.
Then horrr... (Yeah, you got that right. I'M! NOT! DONE!) Then... when the bak kut teh arrived, I knew that I'd never... EVER... go back there ever Ever EVER again. I mean, I'm from Penang lah. Drinks bad, I can take. Dirty, I can close one eye. But bad food??? NO WAY, MAN! Contaminate my delicate, atas taste buds from the supreme Island of Penang? NEVARRRR!!!
So why was this particular bak kut teh so bad? Well, for starters, they use KAILAN for vege in the soup. Like, wth?? Where got people use kailan wan?! And the mushroom and tau pok are still hard like rock. The pork still smelled porky. And while the soup smelled relatively ok, it still ended up being a total letdown cos it was not at all tasty.
Summore hor, in an effort to 'save' my meal and rescue my poor self from death by hunger pangs, I wanted to order ewe char koay. But guess what?? They don't have! Wah, last straw lah liddat. Drink cannot make it, hygiene cannot make it, soup cannot make it, vege cannot make it, tau pok cannot make it, mushroom cannot make it, pork cannot make it, ewe char koay cannot make it... Forget it lah.
The Owner, you mark my words. That will be the first and LAST time I'll ever go there for BKT. It's Klang (or PJ Old Town)... or nothing! RAWR!
Haih. I tell you, these Ipoh people ah...
Taste buds really cannot make it. =p
