Bak Kut Teh @ Restoran How Inn 好運 in Taman Johor Jaya, Johor Bahru

I had earlier tried the famous claypot catfish at How Inn 好運 restaurant in Taman Johor Jaya, and told myself that I must come back for their popular bak kut teh.

So, here I am today as promised to myself :)

This is How Inn's bak kut teh in a claypot. The fresh pork in a bubbling hot claypot of clear herbal broth topped with crackly fried tofu skin.

As usual, I asked for the soft bone (cartilage) which is my favourite cut.

The meat was naturally sweet and firm yet tender.

Another of my favourite cuts, slices of belly pork with lean meat, fat and skin. Deliciously sweet and smooth.

The clear herbal broth has just a slight herbal note and was tasty and drinkable. We loved it and slurped it all up merrily.

We couldn't resist ordering a claypot of How Inn's signature catfish.

Again, the fresh tender catfish chunks cooked in black gooey soy sauce with plenty of ginger shreds and dried chilies teased and pleasured our excited taste buds.

How Inn's signature claypot catfish always pleases.

The flavourful catfish was a complex blend of tangy, sweet, savoury and spicy hot. There was not even the slightest hint of any muddy river taste in How Inn's catfish. How Inn 好運 very well deserves the honour being dubbed the King of Catfish in Johor.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
