BKT at the Coffee Island

I've known Coffee Island as the place only for Western Cuisine. It has somehow being added with BKT or Bak Kut Teh. Due to the special request from Boon Li for BKT and it's mainly because of the ample parking space for 2 cars, we've decided to give it a try for the BKT here.

We've of course ordered both the main "characters", the Bak Kut Teh Soup皇排肉骨茶 and the Bak Kut Teh Dry干香肉骨茶. The customers are allowed to choose the ingredients that range from the pork rib, tripe meat, soft bone, pig's tail, meat ball, pork intestines, pork stomach to Tao Kee or the bean curd sheet. They're definitely not the best for BKT as both the soup and the dry types are not so strong or "sufficient" in taste. We can't smell the herbal in the BKT soup despite we're just sitting nearby the kitchen area. It's quite disappointing as the meat is actually quite tender. I prefer if the dark soy sauce in the dry BKT is indeed thicker while the meat is being sauteed to a slight burnt that it's absorbing the taste of the dark soy sauce besides releasing a nice aroma of the soy. The dried chili is as well insufficient to bring out the tastiness of the dish.

Besides, we've also taken the Deep Fried Grouper Fillet with Shredded Ginger干煎石班鱼块, the Sambal Four Vegetable四大天王 that consists of the lady finger, long bean, lotus root and the eggplant and also the French Bean with Minced Meat肉碎四季豆. The fried fish is definitely a joke whereby it's served without the shredded ginger. The name has mentioned the ingredients, isn't it?!! We've to request for the ginger and it's just topped on the fish with an arrogant attitude from the Aunt. Disappointing! On the other hand, the Sambal doesn't taste delicious while I find it weird that this dish is served with lotus root instead of French Beans or Petai. Luckily, the French Bean is delicious especially being sauteed with the minced meat in the dark soy sauce.

We dislike the dishes here, the BKT is somehow not so tasty anyway. It's good that they're providing ample private car parks here yet I think this is the only reason that the customers are visiting this place.
