Touted by many as one of the best bak kut teh in Penang, this stall is well hidden inside the less known The Shark Food Court (which was previously called Parma Food Court). After a few visits, we totally agree with those who has tipped us to this place.
The Shark Food Court itself is hardly being mentioned anywhere.
It's no wonder that not many are aware of the hidden gems in this food court.
Food Master Bak Kut Teh is another of those gems.
From what we know, this bak kut teh stall was once located along Burma Road.
Then it was moved to Gurney Drive Fantasy Cafe, where the many other Bak Kut Teh coffee shops are.
And then again, they moved to their current location — The Shark Food Court at Burma Road (opposite of Hong La Jiao Steamboat)
We're not sure what's with all the movings.
But one thing we know for sure is that they do serve some really good traditional clear soup bak kut teh.
The meats were tender and flavourful. And the soup was really addictive and obviously like many other bak kut teh places, they do allow you to ask for top up.
After a few visits to this place, we also realized that the customers are mostly locals around the area and those who's been their loyal regulars for many years. (especially those elder generations)
One thing to take note though, the services from their foreign workers were quite bad. So we advice to try being patience in order to not spoil your appetites.
