Kang Ji Bak Kut Teh @ Opposite Bomba

今天我们到访的是一家肉骨茶店,非常经典的一家老店。如果你说它家喻户晓,那还真的是不为过。我相信所有麻坡人一定不会对这一间坐落在圣安德鲁教堂或则有人将它称之为消防局对面的肉骨茶感到陌生。
如果你是在星期日或各个公众假期到访这家肉骨茶店的话,那可能你会得花上一段时间等位子及等食物。大体来说,可能得花上15-20分钟来等候食物。我觉得老板娘是绝对有足够的人手来帮忙她的。
We paid a visit to a pretty significant and famous Bak Kut Teh shop this time. It was definitely well known by all local Muarians. This shop is more likely being recognized or introduced as the one opposite St. Andrew Church or the one nearby Bomba Station.
If you drop by this stall by Sunday or any other Public Holiday, then do expect to wait for some times for a table or even food. It could probably take about 15-20 minutes until your food is served. This is considered not too bad since the boss lady is always helped by her family members. 
这家康记肉骨茶可算是我从小吃到大的。犹记得小时候吃到的肉骨茶都是父母把热腾腾的汤勺进一个小碗里,以避免我们被沙锅烫到。而长大后的肉骨茶都是和所谓的“大人”或长辈们一起同勺同筷地吃着肉骨茶。外坡的肉骨茶都是好像会盛成一小碗一小碗,但大多数的麻坡人都不会这么做。这是一个见仁见智的问题。你可以有你的卫生观点,也可以有你的大众团圆。我觉得怎样都okay, 开心地吃就好。
这里的肉骨茶锅里绝对有很多配料。除了你能想象得到的排骨和猪肚肉,它还有猪肝,猪小肠,蘑菇,猪肉丸,豆萁,和豆噗 (Dao Pok)。我记得以前还有香菇和猪腰,但现在都已经没有了。猪腰或则是任何你喜欢的配料,你都可以额外要求,但加料另计。你也可以要求把你不吃地给摈除,好比说任何猪内藏。
我觉得有点可惜地是,这一家肉骨茶竟没有爽脆的油末菜,所以我们都觉得它少了点绿的感觉。麻坡的肉骨茶绝对少不了油条和乌达。大多数人都会把油条浸泡在肉
骨茶里后再吃。我是属于少数族群的。我比较喜欢现吃未浸泡过的油条。再说乌达好了,这一家的乌达曾经在第10篇的乌达特别专访出现过。我觉得这乌达配肉骨茶真的是很好吃!
I have been to this Kang Ji Bak Kut Teh stall ever since I was young. I can still remember my parents will always pour the soup from the big claypot into a small plastic bowl for my siblings and I. When we grew up, this sort of tradition is no longer exists. We are asked to take the soup from the claypot. Overall, when you ever eat BKT outside of Muar, you tend to see people will pour the BKT soup into small bowls and eat from there. You can hardly see this in Muar. This is really depends on who you are having BKT with. If people are care about hygiene, then just go ahead with the small bowl concept and vice versa. I think anyway will do as long as you enjoy the food.
The BKT here contains lots of “ingredients” despite of pork ribs and pork belly. It has pork livers, pork intestines, mushroom, pork meatballs, etc. I remember it used to have Shitake mushroom and pork kidney, but they are gone and you cant find them in the soup anymore. You can have additional request, but of course that you need to pay extra for your request. You can also ask the boss lady to remove anything that you don’t eat from the soup (Eg, any internal part of Piggy)
However, this stall did not come with any lettuce, and it just simply lack of any kind of vegetables.
All BKT in Muar would always come with You Tiao and otak-otak. Most people would prefer to dip the You Tiao in the soup to soften it before eating. I personally prefer to eat the original You Tiao (without dipping into the soup lol). We had also introduced the otak-otak from this stall at our otak-otak post. I think otak-otak and BKT are really a perfect match! 
芋头饭 Yam Rice
这里的芋头饭较一般,芋头的香味并未真正的渗入进饭香里。相比之下,我是比较喜欢之前介绍过的宝牌肉骨茶的芋头饭,较香较咸较入味。汤头而言,就拿我们今天吃到的这一锅,我是觉得还好。汤有点浊,而且摄影小姐用了极长的时间来捕抓好看的照片,所以汤都凉了,不冒烟了。
有一点必须特注的,基本上吃完每一家的肉骨茶后,你必定感到非常非常口渴。我能给的建议是多喝点茶。
如果你有一天真的来到这家店,5人同行,你或许可以先点个4人份,之后不够的话再加,别浪费食物。而且你只需告诉老板娘大约几个人吃的,然后将以人头计算。以上所提及的配料都会包括在肉骨茶汤里,这和其他的肉骨茶有点不一样,因为其他肉骨茶你都得特别要求老板或老板娘多加肉丸啦,猪肝啦等等。但是,如果你还有其他特别要求,抱歉另计。
The yam rice here is just normal and nothing special about it. The yam’s scent is not fully absorbed into the rice. I more prefer the yam rice we introduced at previous Popeye BKT post because the rice there is more salty and more yummy. The BKT soup we just had today was normal. It wasn’t clear and some more Ms. Photographer took quite a while to take picture here and there, so the soup had turned slightly cold too.
A gentle reminder for all BKT eater: You are most likely thirsty after every single BKT meal, so what I could suggest is drink more tea!
If there’s one day you come to this stall with four other friends, I would recommend you to order 4 portions first. You can order more if it ain’t enough. Please don’t waste the food. Just tell the boss lady how many portions you needed and everything is counted per head count.


曾经和台湾人谈起说我们马来西亚人是会把肉骨茶当早餐的,他们会愕然觉得我们口味怎么这么重,但这就是我们众多早餐选项之一。 
I ever mentioned to some Taiwanese that we Malaysian tend to have BKT as breakfast. They were surprised and wondering how and why we took this heavy breakfast. Oh well, BKT is always on our Malaysian breakfast list.
