One fine weekend, I made a trip down to Tanjung Sepat with my in-laws. Tanjung Sepat is a well-known fishing town just 18km south-east of Morib town. One of the local attractions in this place is YiKee Seafood Bak Kut Teh. Located at the intersection of Jalan Besar and Lorong 7, this quaint restaurant was certainly a crowd puller judging by the morning crowd.
While I had tried all sort of Bak Kut Teh in Klang Valley, seafood Bak Kut Teh was something new to me. From what I understand, the owner came up with this idea of selling seafood Bak Kut Teh when some of its local customers brought along their catch of the day and requested it to be cooked with the Bak Kut Teh broth.
The fresh seafood and other raw ingredients can be seen on the counter top where the owner, Mr. Chia was busy preparing Bak Kut Teh of all sorts for his customers.
Apart from the seafood Bak Kut Teh, YiKee does sell pork based Bak Kut Teh as well. But somehow I didn’t quite enjoy it that much as the soup was rather diluted as compared to thicker version which I generally prefer.
The Prawn Bak Kut Teh was a different story altogether. The sweetness of the seafood flavour really makes the broth tasty. I kept drinking the soup while enjoying the fresh prawns.
The fish paste clear soup will certainly delight those who like strong taste of black pepper with a tinge of sour taste in the soup.
All in all, the bill came up to RM 141. 50 for 10 pax. Quite cheap considering the the amount of seafood that was served in each claypot.
