Tastiest food doesn’t always comes from the hippest or the most happening hangout spots, don’t you agree?? Besides hangout at fancy cafe or restaurants, neither we nor you sometimes also eat at simple humble eatery especially on daily basis. Yesterday AnakJajan accidentally found a new eatery named HOKI Klang Bak Kut Teh at Gajahmada area.
Bak Kut Teh is a pork ribs & meat herbal soup dish a la Chinese. Usually there are two main types of this kind of meat bone soup dish, one is Teochew style with light peppery ‘garlicy’ broth just like the famous SongFa Bak Kut Teh from Singapore and the other one is Hokkien style herbal soy sauce soup just like HOKI’s.
Actually hours before we found this bakkutteh shop by accident, one of our instagram friend Mrs. Sonya tag us on instagram informing there’s this new eatery selling appealing soup and dry bak kut teh but we haven’t had a chance to ask about the location. Then on our way back to home, Mr. Jajan suddenly spot this brand new eatery and asking me “isn’t that the bak kuh teh we just saw on instagram a while ago??”
Confirmed that it’s the same bak kut teh, AnakJajan immediately stopped and park our car and had our dinner there. About the location, it’s quite easy to spot. It’s located at the same row (near) with Joni Steak or across Gandy Steak.
Open everyday from 11.00-23.00, HOKI offers Bak Kut Teh as their signature dish, besides that they also have other dishes such as Penang fried noodle, chicken curry, sautee vegetable with oyster sauce, etc. AnakJajan ordered Bakut Teh Kering (dry bak kut teh) IDR 50k, Bakut Teh Kuah (soup bak kut teh) IDR 50k, Cakwe or fried youtiau or dough fritter IDR 5k and rice IDR 6k.
Please note that they don’t have EDC so you cannot use any card. AnakJajan didn’t realize that we were running out of cash but luckily we kept emergency cash for this kind of moment.
For the Bak Kut Teh both dry or soup, each portion consist of pork ribs, lean meat, belly (samcan) and intestine but you request based on your preference just like us we requested our bak kuh teh without any intestine.
Bakut Teh Kering (dry bak kut teh) IDR 50k
Dry bak kut teh has sweet and savory taste with a bit of spiciness in it from the use of dried chili. Besides pork, they also add mushroom and fried tofu that will totally soak the richness from the sauce, very nice!!
Bakut Teh Kuah (soup bak kut teh) IDR 50k
Soup one is more on the savory taste with a right amount of herbal aroma, don’t forget to order cakwe or dough fritter and dip into the soup .
Overall both dry and soup bak kut teh at HOKI were tasty and comfy, meat was tender and seasoning was also good. Let’s Jajan!!
