Yi Xiang Bak Kut Teh, Auto City

The sign says it all... Bak Kut Teh! This is a relatively new place at Juru Auto City. The banner outside posted the opening date as 3rd of this month. We were on our way home after another trip back to Sitiawan. As our gal was feeling rather dejected and sad after leaving her cousin at home, we let her choose dinner. And she wanted bak-kut-teh.

So we stopped by Yi Xiang Bak Kut Teh at Auto City in Juru. There was a small crowd there even though it was past dinner time. Must be because the place is new. People tend to go try out new places.

The menu...

And this is how they looked when served. Everything is served separately. One thing nice about this is the each soup has its own individualized taste. The ribs are nice. We ordered the stomach which I found soft and nice. Even my little one enjoyed it. There are many other parts which one can order.

The side view. However, my gal still prefers our regular bak-kut-teh fix at Lot 7 in Alor Setar. She says it's nicer and I am inclined to agree with her... and might I add a whole lot cheaper too. Our meal came up to almost RM70 which I think would cost about half of it at our regular joint.

The soups are kept piping hot till the end of the meal via this blue flame under them. Kinda quaint! But for an outlet that looks so 'posh' on the outside, their toilets were dirty. Would we go back there again??? Not sure about that though.
