I've to admit that I'm not a big fans for Chinese cuisine, but Bak Kut Teh is an exception. I love Bak Kut Teh and I've very high expectation for Bak Kut Teh. Yu Yi has been around in KL for more than 30 years and their Bak Kut Teh is very authentic.
Bak Kut Teh in a Clay Pot
Bak Kut Teh in a Clay Pot has a pot full of vegetables, varies type of mushrooms, meats and most importantly the flavorful soup. I love the mushrooms are served in whole piece, and they have absorbed the essence of the soup. The soup is sweet and salty and not overly herbal-ly taste.
KangKung & Belachan
KangKung & Belachan (RM 18 for Large, RM 14 for Medium and RM 10 for small serving) is normal but still tasty!
Hakka Yong Tau Foo
Hakka Yong Tau Foo (RM 1.60 per piece) with the choice of fried Toufu, eggplant, Bitter Gourd and Chili. It surprised me that the gravy on top of the Yong Tau Foo is really good, it's flavorful but not too salty.
Yard-long Bean Rice
Yard-long Bean Rice (RM 2.50 for Large and RM 2 for small serving) is very aromatic, you will be able to smell it from far even before it's served to our table. The rice is fried first and then steamed later before it's served, and you would not be able to resist it.
Pork Stomach in Pepper Soup
Pork Stomach in Pepper Soup (RM 20) is by far the most hot pepper soup I've ever tasted. Even spoonful of soup you drink, you can feel the warmth from the mouth to the stomach. I don't like the overly peppery taste, but I love the crunchy pork stomach. So at the end, I decide to abandon the soup and just focus on eating the pork stomach (oh my, the cholesterol)
Steamed Fish Head with Minced Ginger
Steamed Fish Head with Minced Ginger is not smoothest in texture, but I like that the dish is free of mud taste. The sauce is cooked with plenty of minced ginger, but it's not spicy at all. It is indeed very delicious.
Yu Yi’s Signature Pot
Yu Yi’s Signature Pot might seem simple with just bones and garlic, but I have to say the taste is awesome! This is among the top three dish for the day. The soup somehow give you the feeling of happiness and being loved.
Drunken Chicken in Huangjiu
Drunken Chicken in Huangjiu costs RM 20 for chicken drumstick or RM 28 for half Kampung Chicken. This is definitely my favorite dish overall. The strong alcohol smell might trick your smell bud that the alcohol level is too high, but your taste bud will tell you it's just perfectly mild and nice. I love that an egg is put on top of the soup which add on a little bit of playful look and taste to the dish. It's so nice that I'm willing to have this soup every day if I could.
Overall, Yu Yi serves Authentic Bak Kut Teh, but if you try other dishes as well, it will impress you.
