Popular Steam Fish (淡杯烫鱼) at Hin Hock Bak Kut Teh Restaurant (兴福) at Tampoi, Johor Bahru.

The Restaurant Hin Hock Bak Kut Teh (N1.49716 E103.70261) is located along Jalan Dato Toh Ah Boon, Tampoi. The street is just beside the Cycle & Carriage Johor Bahru and it's simple to locate. Many peoples thought that the Bak Kit Teh should be the signature dish but the true is their Fresh Steam Fish is the Popular and Famous dish in Tampoi area.

The Hin Hock Bak Kut Teh Restaurant is operating in an old wooden shop, and the place usually humid, hot and poor ventilation during day time...unless it's rain just like the good timing we had on our visit. Their speciality is the Steam Fish, wiht the different cooking method compare with others...they prepare the fresh fish in the hot boiling water, Not exactly steam it...unitl the fish is ready to serve. Interesting!

We chose the outdoor area for better ventilation even on the raining day...

The cooking and foods preparation area is situated outside the restaurant, I felt they make more transperant to their customers is a good idea.

Their service was fast and good, and they only have few common dishes to serve which made the order process much more easier.

Our order :-

*  Steam Tiplapia (fish)
*  Minced pork oyster sauce bean curd (tou-fu)
*  Claypot braised vinegar pork knuckle
*  Minced pork bean sprout

The fish was fresh and nice! They boiled and served the fish on the perfect timing, and I like my every bite with the chopped spring onions and fried garlic very much! And don't forget with the onion and garlic sauce that served together with the fish...
I can't really tell the different between their cooking method and common steaming method, anyway...it taste Good!

The pork was tender and flavorful, the vinegar level was just nice which made the dish more tasty!

Minced pork bean sprout

The way the prepared it was special to me, hardly can see so much of topping of minced pork on the juicy bean sprout. Not bad!

They started the business since 20 years ago and become one of the 'Must Try' food if you visit Tampoi area. It's advise to visit the restaurant during the non-peak hour, that's why we stepped in about 11am...just to avoid the lunch hour crowd.

The photo I took of the outlook was the old shop, they had swifted to the new location on the same street about 200 meter away, just notice their signage for easy locate.

The Damage for the above dishes included drinks was RM71.00 for 4 adults. I will visit it again whenever I pass by, but...only during raining day...:)
