Best Bak Kut Teh in Kuching

Written by Updated ago

Bak Kut Teh has been one of the most loved pork stew dishes in Malaysia. The name translates to “meat bone tea” which consists of meaty pork ribs simmered in a thick pork broth with herbs and spices. Throwback flavours including star anise, cinnamon, cloves, dang gui (a type of ginseng), fennel seeds and garlic are just the key ingredients that brings out the aromatic flavour of the pork meat. With many acclaimed from its own place as its founding birthplace, it rightfully originated from the old Klang town. Spreading far and wide across west Malaysia in Sarawak, Kuching, a selected few of Bak Kut Teh restaurants have been planted in amidst of this bustling vicinity.

    Boiled in 2 and a half hours accompanied with nine different herbs and three recipe ingredients mixed with an aromatic herbal soup. You have the option of belly pork, ribs, joints, stomach, trotter, meat ball, liver, kidney, tail and intestine based on your requests. Overall, the ribs or pork belly are still always the best as the meat is boiled intensely in the claypot itself giving a strong rich flavour to it.

    Tips

    Arrive earlier to avoid the big crowd.

    Imperial Bak Kut TehNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Imperial’s Bak Kut Teh fashions a well-structured clay pot bowl of porky goodness. It is surely not one to miss especially when its super dark boiled soup pork ribs and spare parts of the pork are immersing in it. Served in an old fashion style clay pot to trap the heat allowing the pork to stay warm and well cooked. Do not fret as you are allowed to order it separately without the spare parts (intestines, kidney, etc.) of the pork.

    Tips

    Be sure to let the waiter know which part of the pork you would prefer.

    An original Kuching Bak Kut Teh that’s made in a light broth. However, don’t let the light colour fool you as it packs a punch of strong peppery taste. You’ll be offered to choose your preferred meat and garnishing to go inside the soup. The broth carries a refined taste of the pork that’s sweet and juicy. Of course not forgetting to complete it with a bowl of fragrant rice.  

    Tips

    Have your meals earlier to get the good parts of the pork.

    Nyu Klang Seafood Bak Kut TehNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Step into one of Kuching’s unique Bak Kut Teh where your dish is served with seafood. You could say that its a game changer as the dish is pork oriented. Large prawns, squid, and other seafood are boiled the same way Klang Bak Kut Teh is usually done. Its broth isn’t as thick but the soup gives an extra sweet flavour from the seafood. The taste may differ from the original style but it’s a definite try to venture into if you’re tired of the typical original style.

    Tips

    Cash only.
