江豐肉骨茶 Permas Jaya - A Shoon Huat Bak Kut Teh Sister Shop

Went for a light lunch at 江豐肉骨茶 bak kut teh just beside Renaissance Hotel in the Permas Jaya commercial hub. 江豐肉骨茶 is a little under the social media radar though it has its own loyal following.

江豐肉骨茶 is the corner shop in this yellow colour shop lot building along Jalan Permas 10/6. The 江豐肉骨茶 signboard is weathered and not clearly visible from the road. 江豐肉骨茶 also does not have an English signboard. The easiest way to locate 江豐肉骨茶 is to look for the Soon Huat bak kut teh outlet here - the two bak kut teh shops are just side by side across the side lane from each other.

Despite its lack of visibility on social media, 江豐肉骨茶 is popular with locals and Singaporean golfers who know their JB food.

I had pig tail, my favourite cut for bak kut teh. It came in a clay pot and I thought it's a generous serving for RM10. (I am not a big fan of pork ribs as I like my pork to have meat, fat and skin together i.e. tail, trotter, elbow, belly 😄)

The broth was light bodied and has almost clear light tea colour. Its savoury sweet herbal flavours are well balanced. The intensity of flavours in the broth was just nice for me - I can taste all the flavours but it doesn't overwhelm the pork's gentle natural flavour.

The pork tail was very nicely done - lovely tender chewy texture and oh.. such.. tasty natural sweetness. The meat was very fresh and clean tasting.

If you are at 江豐肉骨茶 and you sensed, a certain resemblance between their bak kut teh and Shoon Huat's BKT, congratulations - your hunch is correct.

You see, 江豐肉骨茶 and Shoon Huat are sister shops. I meant it literally. 

The owner of 江豐肉骨茶 is the younger sister of the lady boss of Shoon Huat BKT, the world's largest BKT brand with at least 19 outlets.

The lady boss runs 江豐肉骨茶 with her son 亞威 and daughter, supported by a team of workers.

👉 While all Shoon Huat BKT related outlets use the same recipe of herbs for their broth and same supplier of pork, each outlet have their own individual touches and so their own following - I like 江豐肉骨茶's take on Shoon Huat's savoury sweet herbal style of JB BKT.

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