Best Bak Kut Teh in KL

Written by Updated ago

Literally translated as “meat bone tea”, Bak Kut Teh is a favourite Malaysian comfort food. Who could actually resist the temptation of piping hot broth filled with pork meat and bones, mushrooms, Chinese cabbage and tofus? As good as it sounds, a good bowl of BKT offers several layer of taste, texture and aroma. And all you need is a mound of white rice to get you going. Thankfully, Kuala Lumpur has some of the best BKT spots that might sound like a direct invitation during the perfect cold weather or any sort of family and friends gathering. Metaphorically, it’s a heaven in a bowl/claypot. Happy slurping!

They also have a variety of sides to feed a family. Their sides include Yellow-Wine Chicken, Steamed Fish Head, Pepper Soup Stomach, Thick Soy Sauce Pork Leg, Sweet and Sour Pork Leg, and more!

    Son In Bak Kut Teh is famously known to serve great innards in their BKT. This is a restaurant that looks humble and isn’t fancy what-so-ever as their BKT speaks as their best marketing tool. It’s affordable, tasty, and full of aroma. The meat and broth in the dish is average but at their price, it’s satisfying and let's just say, there won't be any left once you try it. The uniqueness of their BKT is the Chinese wine and ginger they put it in. Budget onlookers this one is for you!

    Nam Seng Bak Kut Teh is another great place to be if you're craving for pork. Quite amazingly, they're famed for their ribs instead of other cuts of meat. Just that alone in a bowl of piping hot soup somehow just makes everything a whole lot better. That is not to say that ribs are the only way to go, but it certainly is well worth the choice when you're choosing for your cut of meat. All and all, the broth poise a rich, sweet and delicate flavour while the pork pieces are all done to tender perfection.

There are stir-fried dishes, Cantonese-styled steamed fish head and bak kut teh. They open at 6pm and close at 5am. This would be the perfect place for those out for supper or trying to sober up. Their broth can be salty and should be eaten with rice. Order up their tender small intestines, wine chicken and pig's tail. A satisfying BKT experience.

    Ban Lee Bak Kut Teh is one of the few 24-hour BKT joints and we absolutely love them for that. This is a wonderful place for a quick meal or casual dinner. Their BKT has a strong herbal taste with Chinese wine. Stuck in a dark alley, you still won’t miss their red sign board and a teeming crowd that welcomes you to this Kuala Lumpur comfort food. Their small and soft bones are tender but still has a good bite and its best devoured with regular condiments like Chinese crullers and tau fu pokA great place for late eaters!

    The Claypot Bak Kut Teh at The Barn certainly delivers in terms of aroma. When you first pop the lid off the pot, steam with the smell of stewed pork pieces in an aromatic herb stew base hits you instantly. In terms of ingredients, this bowl has kept it fairly simple, with pork ribs, three-layer pork pieces, lean meat and Chinese lettuce. As far as flavour is concerned, this pot of herbal porcine stew skews to a lighter flavour as opposed to the rich and heavy flavours that are commonplace with this dish. It is also great that the flavour of the soup has been absorbed by all the ingredients. On top of that, the pork is soft, tender and easy to pull off the bone.

    Tips

    Handle the pot carefully as it is very hot.

    Things to expect

    A small bowl of rice and a side of garlic and chopped chillis in soy sauce are served alongside the pot.

    Best with

    Add garlic and chopped chillis in soy sauce for more of a kick and added flavour.

    If you're ever at The Point and you saw 'bak kut teh' on the menu, don't freak out. Instead, why not give it a try? After all, it's their interpretation of the traditional bak kut teh that is found everywhere around Klang Valley. No, it doesn't come in a claypot nor a bowl, but rather, a plate with gorgeous cuts of 3-layered pork on top of muesli. The flavours from the original broth has been reduced into a thick sauce and used to coat the entire dish beautifully. Not only is it flavourful, the pork is incredibly tender and juicy and will certainly delight in every way.

    Ka Ka Bak Kut Teh is known as one of the most popular BKT restaurants in Kepong. They have been unofficially crowned as the 'King of BKT' and they have a pretty solid reason to that. The thick, rich and savoury sauce with a minor herbal undertone works well with those who can't accept the herbal-ish essence, but still flavourful enough to pack a punch. It is also served with generous chunks of pork, according to what kind of cuts you enjoy most; be it fat, lean or mix. All and all, this is a great place to enjoy the dry-form bak kut teh.

    There are plenty of things to savour in Imbi, and Ah Hee Bak Kut Teh is certainly one of them. On first glance, the restaurant may not look like much with its green signage and rather obscure looking interior. However, all that will change once you've tried out their bak kut teh. To start, the broth is nice and clear, though not translucent, it isn't as murky. Despite that, it still packs in a good amount of flavour which many other restaurant fails to deliver. A dry variant is also available, so just pick your poison.
