Legendary Mo Sang Kor Bak Kut Teh Pandamaran, Port Klang 毛山稿肉骨茶 JK1515
It has to happen. I must make a pilgrimage to the flag bearers of Klang style bak kut teh - one of them is Mo Sang Kor. The premier bak kut teh shop has outlets at Taman Berkerley and Pandamaran. We opted for the old parent stall at Pandamaran.
Mo Sang Kor is at the junction of Jalan Chan Ah Choo and Jalan Jagong. The little corner shop is obscured by big trees and cars parked at the front.
It's a cool, laid back corner where locals come and enjoy their bak kut teh with a pot of tea with family and friends.
This Mo Sang Kor outlet is run by second generation owner Mr. Lee, whose mother founded the bak kut teh shop 44 years ago.
At Mo Sang Kor, customers pick the specific piece of meat that they want.
Mo Sang Kor serves kawan 脚弯 (elbow), sai kuat 小骨 (trotter), tai kuat 大骨 (shank), ribs, soft ribs 软骨, pork belly, lean meat, and intestines.
Mo Sang Kor's broth reminds me of motor oil. No kidding, it's like the 0W-30 kind.
We had a tai kuat (shank).
One bite and I was swooned by the layered sweet, herbal and savoury flavours from mushrooms, soy sauce, herbs and the sweet pork. The meat was tender, the fat soft and the skin was tenderly springy.
I love this "soft bone" too as that was exactly what it was - soft and juicy, and infused with the same sweet, herbal savouriness.
The sweet savoury flavour of Chinese black mushroom was pronounced. The "soft bone" crumbled easily to our chewing.
The kawan (elbow) is a popular cut because it has everything - QQ skin, soft fat, tenderlicious meat and chewy rubber bandy tendon.
Mo Sang Kor's legendary BKT broth really lives up to it's reputation. It's a full bodied broth thicken by dissolved collagen from cooking all the pork cuts in the pot. The gooey viscous broth is sweet, herbal savoury - a little thick but I gladly drank up all as it was so slurpilicious.
By the way, there is no top ups for this liquid black gold :-D
Our total bill for all the food, rice and tea came to RM34 altogether.
👍 Mo Sang Kor in Pandamaran is totally worth the hour long drive from KL plus all the tolls :-D It's one of the definitive Klang style bak kut teh shops and really lives up to it's legendary reputation.
