As the name suggest, the specialty at Ah Wang is Bak Kut Teh, and the sign board in chinese also mentioned fish head . Our visit was on a Saturday evening around 8-ish, and the place was packed , I never counted, but it was a large open area and guesstimate is, maybe can fit up to 50 tables
For BKT, you have a choice of parts of porky that you would like in your pot, and when the question of ‘ do u all eat spare parts ?’ was asked, there was one nod around the table and 2 ‘nos’. They also serve the chicken version of BKT
For fish, there are 3 choices of steamed fish : assam, ginger or soy sauce . We opted for ginger steamed fish.
And for vege , we ordered stir fried yau-mak.
Other dishes (which were printed on the bill , I am not sure of their availability though) : pork leg vinegar, pepper pork stripe soup, otak otak, Fu-churk. Needle mushroom, Taufu pork, taufu with oil, pig trotters as well as chicken feet
The BKT that we ordered was the small portion (RM8) and I think what went though all 3 heads when the ‘pot’ arrived was , ‘ oh..so small ah..dunno enough or not ‘ but anyway, they do re-fills for the soup, so it was quite ok. The soup was clear-ish and light , i.e. not those thick dark heavy soup, it was kinda sweet too, so, this might not sit too well with those that like the thick strong herb-y taste of BKT. The meat, with a bit of fat was nice and tender.
The fish..ahh.the fish, was very enjoyable – .the fish was covered from head to fin with finely pounded ginger plus some gravy which was a perfect blend, the fish was fresh without any‘earth-y’ taste. Highly recommended. We ordered the small portion –RM21 The table next to ours , had steamed asam fish, which smelled and looked pretty good too…
The stir fried yau mark with garlic (RM5) was nice, the dish retained the crispness and freshness of the vege
The total bill came to RM40.20 inclusive of rice, drinks plus yau char kwai. Quality of food, good.
