Restoran Yi Xiang Bak Kut Teh
Post by Chiefeater VK
A cold and wet night called for a meal that would warm the body and Bak Kut Teh fills that role perfectly. That's how we ended up at Restoran Yi Xiang. This was a choice guided by the trust of unknown reviewers.
We arrived at 6:30 pm and we found out that many of the meat options that they had were already sold out. There were a few items available which made it easy for us to decide. We had one of each. Ban Fei Sou (RM17), Pai Gu (RM18), Ruan Gu (RM18) and Da Gu (RM18).
Pai Gu or Pork Ribs in front
Ban Fei Sou was more lean than fat but it tasted so good.
Da Gu or Big Bone
We also had some sides - You Tiao (RM4), Dou Fu Bo (RM7) and Xiao Ba Cai (RM12).
Dou Fu Bo
The Xiaa Ba Cai was excellent. The vegetable was crunchy and was well seasoned.
The bowls are kept warm with a candle below it. This ensures your food remains hot throughout your meal.
Their commitment to excellence became evident as we delved into their philosophy of on-demand cooking. While it demanded a bit more patience, the resulting quality was palpable in every spoonful and bite.
Restoran Yi Xiang serves the dark-colored herbal soup variety of Bak Kut Teh. The broth was brimming with aromatic herbs and became the canvas for a symphony of pork cuts. The tender meat and fat absorbed the essence of the broth, creating a harmonious balance of flavours. I loved how the meat was tender yet had a nice bite and was never mushy.
I especially liked how the meat fell off the bone, which you can see from the picture below.
Even before the meal ended, it became clear – Restoran Yi Xiang had earned its place as my personal haven for best Bak Kut Teh in Puchong. The robust flavours, coupled with the restaurant's on demand approach to cooking elevated the dining experience.
What was left
At RM106 for three diners, our sumptuous dinner here proved to be a judicious investment in culinary satisfaction. The combination of quality, variety, and the joy of discovering a new favourite made every ringgit well spent.

They close early if they have already sold out. The night we were there, they closed at 8 pm. So go early. This is not a place for a late BKT.
