From the Burpple community

Run by a rather rotund gentleman of its namesake, Fatty Bak Kut Teh reigns supreme with the best of the both worlds — think a Chinese-style surf and turf of bak kut teh and steamed fish. For family dinners or late night outings with a few friends, this airy outdoor restaurant hits the spot. Order the Bak Kut Teh (from RM17), served in a claypot chock-full of pork belly, pork balls and innards (the latter is optional, but highly recommended). The broth is on the lighter side, so be sure to help yourself to condiments. A combination of chopped bird's eye chillies, garlic and thick, dark soy sauce complements the meal with robust flavours. Heed bossman's recommendation for their house specialty Ginger Steamed Fish Head (from RM43). The fresh fish head comes in a whopping size that feeds up to four, and its ambrosial minced ginger sauce bolsters the fish to its ideal flavours. If a man approaches with a different menu for grilled lamb and seafood, take up his offer for Grilled Clams (RM23). Steeped in a spicy, ginger-laced soup within the foil wrapper, these clams of the thicker shell variety are a delicious addition to the meal!

A type of clam known as sabak in Cantonese, these have a thicker shell and generally fetch juicier meat. Grilled in a foil wrapper, the rice wine and ginger gravy reduces to a delicious concoction while the clams seep up all flavour. This isn't actually from Fatty, but they're in good terms so it's ok to order from the pop-up stalls while dining here.


The bak kut teh is nothing to shout about, a run-of-the-mill broth that lacks the ultimate bkt complement, fu chuk. But the addition of pork balls (yum) was a strong plus point for me. The Steamed Fish in Soy Sauce (RM43) lacked little in freshness, and there was more than enough flesh to go around between the five of us. However, the sauce itself fell short, as we found it to be rather diluted. Definitely stick to the Ginger Steamed Fish Head that they're known for.
