Best Food Of Yu Yi Bak Kut Teh @Jalan Kuching Segambut KL by FollowMeToEatLa
Apart from the signature dishes of Bak Kut Teh, Yu Yi expanded their menu to a variety of chicken, pork stew, steam fish and even mushroom dishes to please the patrons. Following are the rest of noteworthy dishes that I found quite palatable.
Savoury & Nutritious Abalone Slice Taufoo
I loved my taufu cooked in any style - be it in soup, stew, fried, steam or even simply eaten with soya sauce or oyster sauce. It's a very versatile food. Rich in high-quality protein as well as low in calories and has no saturated fat or cholesterol too. It is also a good source of B-vitamins and iron. I was quite excited when was served this appetizing dish that nite.
Serving RM 12 per plate
The freshly house made taufu was smooth and melt-in-your-mouth soft, and the delicious gravy was simply irresistible. Cooked together with julienned carrots, sliced shiitake mushrooms and imitation abalone made from squid sitting on a bed of chinese mustard (bok choy) well seasoned with special chinese wine, Siew Heng, this simple & tasty dish can win over my heart any day, any time! I will definitely come back for more ...
Original Flavour Yam Chicken
My visit or Makan Ventures to this Bak Kut Teh Yuyi Restaurant brought a lot of pleasant surprises for me. First, was the unique way of eating the crispy fried abalone by dipping it first in the herbal soup. Secondly, was this unassuming yam & chicken dish. I have eaten the stewed yam with pork (woo tao kau yok) a popular Hakka dish numerous time during my dinner trip with family or at chinese wedding dinners too. But, this is something very different from what I imagine it to be.
RM12 for a plate of goodness
Yam was cooked by stewing it till soft and mushy for the melt in the mouth experience. Well seasoned chicken was infused with the fragrant curry leaves, excellent combination with wonderful texture from the meat and yam. Something different, unexpecting tasty, though doesn't look good in picture ... a noteworthy dish to check out when visiting this restaurant.
Pork Leg in Thick Soy Sauce
RM 9 for bowl in claypot
Pork Leg was never my favourite due to the thick layer of unhealthy fat and skin. Being on a strict no fat diet, be it the chicken skin or pork skin, these parts can never come in contact with me. Under circumstances, I will gracefully 'dissect' the fat or skin from the meat, leaving the lean meat to be eaten. My pork loving friend will always say " Aiyah, Lilly ... whylah you don't how to enjoy this dish? You're taking away the best part of the meat. So sayanglah !"
Gelatinous Pork Leg in Thick Soy sauce
Well, you see for this particular dish, I would rated it average because the sauce was not up to the mark. Can't taste the intense flavouring that usually comes with this dish. It came off as mild tasting dish for me. Apart from that, the lean part of the meat was tender and soft, not rubbery. Serving is good. Overall, it's still a good dish for those who loved pig skin including the chewy gelatinous tendons.
