Best Bak Kut Teh in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Bak Kut Teh literally translates as “meat bone tea”, and is a dish originated from the Hokkien migrants during the British colonial era in Malaysia. Chunks of pork ribs, assorted mushrooms, tofus, and Chinese cabbages simmer in the rich broth infused with herbs and spices, exuding a delicate fragrance that initiates your salivation. We have handpicked the best spots dishing out authentic pots of bak kut teh for you to start slurping the pot squeaky clean.

    If you are looking for air-conditioning and comfortable seating area, then Lai Xiang Bak Kut Teh may not be the place of visit for you. However, if you do not mind the mosquitoes and humidity, then by all means, do head on down and give them a try. Lai Xiang Bak Kut Teh is located at BB Cafe, right behind Suntech Building. They usually open late in the evening, after all the other shops are closed. Their broth, which is pitch black in color, is one of the main reasons any one would visit. It has a rich and deep flavour with a herbal-ish aroma, filled with plenty of enoki mushrooms and beancurd, as well as your choice of meat.
