Bone in the soup…

This was in 2017 when they were here

Master Lee, Fortune Commercial Centre

…among the shops behind the Rejang Medical Centre. I was planning to go and try one fine day but the days became months, the months became years and I never did. Eventually, that outlet closed down and its place has been taken over by a coffee shop.

Well, it was Sunday again so I asked my girl where she wanted to go for lunch and when I suggested bak kut teh, literally translated as meat bone tea, she jumped at the idea saying that she had not had that for a long time now, not since 2017.

That was why we ended up at the new outlet of the aforementioned bak kut teh chain…

Master Lee, Rejang Park

…at Rejang Park…

Klang Claypot Bak Kut Teh

…which is quite near my house so it is quite convenient to go there.

We only asked for two bowls of rice (RM1.20 each)…


…to share and we ordered the bak kut teh, soup for 2 (RM22.00)…

…for which we could pick three types of meat to go into it and we also had the dry version for 2 (RM24.00)…

…also with three picks of meat.

Perhaps we should have ordered their single servings because we also ordered this fried pork belly dish (RM15.00)…

…and in the end, we did leave behind a bit of the meat – there was a bit too much for us to handle.

The pork belly was nice and between the two versions of the bak kut teh, we felt the soup version was nicer – there was a delightful herbal taste in the soup, not too strong but strong enough and very much to our liking. As a matter of fact, we even bought a packet of their herbs (RM15.90) to take home and one of these days, we are going to cook our own.

The ladies wanted the sweet potato leaves (RM7.00)…

…but since I have been planting my own at home and I pick them to cook while they are still very young and tender, I am not all that fond of the ones they serve outside, a bit difficult to chew and not as nice.

The ladies went for the fancy drinks on their menu – my girl had the longan jujube tea (RM4.00) and the mum had the Taiwan longan honey (RM4.00) while I stuck faithfully to my good ol’ kopi-o-peng (RM1.80).

The overall total added up to a whooping RM96.10 and of course, there I went thinking about all the other places that we could have gone to and enjoy the food a lot more with that kind of money. All in all, I would say it was a pretty good lunch though not anything that would get us rushing back for more all that soon and actually, we do prefer that other place in town, their dry version especially.

This outlet of the MASTER LEE KLANG CLAYPOT BAK KUT TEH (2.306941, 111.836912) is located among the Rejang Park shops in the block to the left of what-used-to-be a cinema between Sin Nang Leong General Store and King Hua Hair Salon.
