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!

    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!

    In the heart of the city, Sun Fong offers a BKT experience with indoor and alfresco dining. Their layout is clean cut and welcoming, ideal for large gatherings. They are known to serve a killer pork kidney and meat with big portions. Something unique Sun Fong serves in their seafood bak kut teh, which is tasty and fresh compared to the traditional thick overpowering flavour of pork (Which we love!). Also, a host of sides that are vying for equal attention. The best part? They have free refills of their tasty broth!

    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!

    Tips

    Avoid their fu chok (known to have an odd taste to them)

    Things to expect

    Fast service and clean restaurant
