Pao Xiang Bah Kut Teh @ Sri Petaling

The location of the day is a well-established franchise selling non-Halal Bak Kut Teh.
And this is only one of their 20 franchises around Malaysia and Singapore.

Wow! Are you wondering how can a Bah Kut Teh restaurant
manage
to expand their business until this extent?

#1 Their cleanliness.
This shop is very well-ventilated with clean and organized environment,
which makes you feel comfy being there.

#2 The convenience.
The hot water dispenser is provided for every table so that customers can refill anytime they want.
And you can always choose your own tea bag.

#3 The varieties.
They categorize the meat into various parts,
so you can opt for the parts which you favour the most!

#4 The chart.
With this, you can get to know more bout which part you'd love to try the most.
The numbers on the pig refer to the dish offered in this restaurant.

It's Food Time! Let's see what have I ordered for a bah kut teh meal.

A pot of Chinese Tea @ RM 5.00 
Tea is a must-have to start off a Chinese meal.
It only worth your money if you are dining with at least 5 persons, meaning only RM1 per head. 

Yau Mark @ RM 7.50
Order a plate of vegetable whenever a meal full of meat is right ahead; it's healthier!

"Yau Char Kueh" @ RM 3.00
This is deep fried and best served when hot :)
But one plate of this only consists two pairs of yau char kueh you usually get from the market.

Pua Pui Chiak @ RM 8.50
Honestly I don't know what does it mean by Pua Pui Chiak. 
If you have any idea, what language is this? 
Unlike any other Bah Kut Teh, their "String Tied Meat" is more aromatic and taste better. You will definitely savor how gently the meat dissolves in your mouth; followed with a concentrated explosion of great taste.

My all-time favourite: Button Mushroom @ RM 7.50
Honestly, one small bowl full of mushrooms can't be this expensive!

:P I just can't wait to start eating now!

Each given portion is for one individual, that's why the bowls are all so small.
Even if so, I bet one bowl is insufficient for a Bah Kut Teh lover.

RM39.90 for two pax.
I bet it's ringgits far more expensive compared to other Bah Kut Teh restaurants.
I probably won't opt for this franchise anymore when it comes to Bah Kut Teh.

Well, indeed the name is popular but the consistency varies from one outlet to another. From what I heard, only Pao Xiang at Pavilion (which looks pretty much like fine dining!) serves good food. Anywhere else you go you wouldn't get the same quality like those in Pavilion outlet. What do you think? :)

Verdict:
1. Fairly good taste but it's not the best I've ever tried, although I can't say it is the worst.
2. Overly priced foodstuff. 
3. Clean and well-organized ambiance for a simple dining.
