Best Bak Kut Teh in Melaka

Written by Updated ago

Bak Kut Teh is a great comfort food to many of us. We have it for breakfast, on rainy nights, on days when we crave for something warm and comforting and on days when we just want to indulge in porky goodness. When we think about BKT, everyone ultimately presumes the best comes from Klang Valley. Melaka is a pretty small state to begin with, so it's not fairly hard to source for BKTs. It's not to say there isn't any nice BKT at all. You'd be surprised to know that Melaka isn't very much behind the whole BKT delicacy. Hence, we've round up some of the best Melaka BKTs here just for you.

    Teo Chew Bah Kut Teh (潮州肉骨茶)Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    If you are looking for something out of the ordinary bak kut teh, this Teo Chew styled BKT can do just as well for an adventurous foodie. The pork broth has less herbal taste and more of the peppery type but tastes equally as good since the pork meat is very tender. Ask any Melakan and you wouldn't be surprised to hear that a waiting queue of 40mins long is pretty normal for this bak kut teh. Despite the long waiting time, we'd say the food is pretty worth it. 

    Tips

    Tea and soup are refillable here.

    Things to expect

    They don't serve white rice but yam rice instead.

    Best with

    Pork Belly.

    Price

    RM10.00 to RM25.00

    Lim Kee Restaurant (林记沙煲肉骨茶)Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Apparently to many, Lim Kee are one of the oldest-serving BKT shop in Melaka. Most locals visit Lim Kee continuously for the strong, herbal taste of broth. This isn't the peppery type, so it caters well to the usual local taste of herbal broth. The yam rice is especially loved well here for its aromatic flavor; fried to perfection. Tastes like fried garlic rice, but yam version obviously. 

    Tips

    Different meat parts can be mixed and matched in your broth.

    Things to expect

    Traditional, old-school BKT.

    Best with

    Yam rice along with yao char kuey is a great combination to go with the broth.

    Ah Hui Bak Kut TehNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    BKT at Ah Hui's is pretty alright as the broth is just decent, but the tender and juicy pork ribs dipped in the soup totally makes up for it. Comparing to many other peppery BKTs, Ah Hui's definitely lacked in the flavor department but it's great for those who wish for non-overpowering BKT broth. A plus point? The restaurant is air-conditioned! Definitely a cool escape from the heat outside.

    Tips

    You can refill your broth but unfortunately, it's only limited to a one-time refill!

    Things to expect

    Nice and clean BKT place.

    Best with

    You can order some side dishes along with your BKT; like vegies or sweet and sour chicken.

    Price

    RM15.00 to RM35.00

    Ah Lang Bak Kut Teh 阿兰肉骨茶Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Ah Lang's BKT is worth a visit judging from many locals who frequent the place often, especially so on early mornings or brunch hours. The porky meat and trotters are cooked so soft that it melts instantly in your mouth - making the broth all the more sweeter and flavorful. How is that not to die for?! Although it is a tad bit salty but we still love it. How sinful. A great addition is the special pork meatballs. As a KL person, that's very rare on BKTs but it seem to be the normal thing here at Melaka!

    Tips

    You can order any parts of the pork you desire, from pork intestine to pork tongue. If you are not that adventurous then the lean meat is just fine.

    Things to expect

    Everything here is so porky and fatty; if you are on a diet then please avoid this place! Hahaha.

    Best with

    They also serve yam rice! The best part is that the bowl of rice comes along with additional, yummy sliced yam bits.

    Price

    RM11.00 to RM20.00

    黎氏牛肉及肉骨荼 Loi's Top Beef Kut TehNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    When people think of BKT, many usually associate them with pork, pork, and more pork (haha). KL readers, you've heard of chicken BKT but did you know of beef BKT? Well there's one here in Melaka, and they do kick up some notch with they beefy goodness. Older residences remember the older branch but since then it has moved to a spanking new shop, much cleaner and spacious, too. Their BKT is served with slices of bloody-red beef meat on top, along with many other goodies like beef balls, foo chook (fried beancurd), and etc. 

    Tips

    Customers can cook the meat by themselves (in the pipping hot soup) according to their liking This way, they can avoid overcooking the meat by the time the claypot arrives to the table.

    Things to expect

    Spacious and airy BKT. Only visit if you are keen with beef meat.

    Best with

    More beef slices, please.

    Price

    RM12.00 to RM30.00
