Good Luck Bah Kut Teh - Bayan Baru

Well , well , well .
Just when you least expect cheap , clean and fast to exist side by side on Penang island , walla , a place like this pops up .

And when I say cheap , I am not referring to those places where bah kut teh still costs MYR 5.50 per portion for per person . Don't know about elsewhere , but if it costs that little on the island , you're freaking risking it ! Not gonna elaborate on that matter further .

Anyway , the cheap I am talking about , hovers around ( more or less ) 10 ringgit per person . 
Certain places command two times that amount but don't expect premium meat . Sometimes , I think those expensive joints are either scams or pure herd mentality hype .

Lemme explain further with regards to the pricing ....if you order a bowl of bah kut teh soup for 2 pax , at Good Luck , it is just gonna cost you around 20 ringgit , not inclusive of drinks , rice and any add ons .
3 persons = 30ish , 4 = 40 ish .

The real Good Master Bah Kut Teh

Can't believe I've been this ignorant all this while.
Thought that the two restaurants were one and the same. Assumed they were run by the same operator.
Heck, even the signage is almost the same colour.
Apparently not.
There is a slight variation in their name.
One goes by " Good Master Bah Kut Teh"
The other " Bah Kut Teh Good Master"
Sneaky trickery.

Discovered this because the other shop in the right hand of this photo above , had closed earlier. 
Roaring business it enjoys night after night. 
The one below, still remained open. So in we went.
Out of curiosity, we asked if they were the same. 
They said no and left it at that. 

Did more digging online, and that was when we discovered a skeleton in the closet of the highly regarded restaurant across the road .

Restoran Cheng Heong Bah Kut Teh ( NH )

It has been some years ever since my last visit. Don't know if  the same people are running this place or not. But it's raining miserably tonight in Air Itam and I didn't want to get my feet wet eating by the roadside

Awfully quiet in here. More like a neighbourhood restaurant in some small town.
As I recall, a husband and wife team used to run the place, they couldn't have grown THAT old overnight could they ?
Keeping my fingers crossed right now
