Without a doubt, other than chow Ah Bengs like Tan Kar Leng, the greatest thing out of Klang is the bak kut teh. The delicious herbal soup with pork, mushroom, tofu, and some vege that goes so well with rice and yau char kuai (油炸鬼). At least that is what most of you noobs are familiar with. Enter the “dry” version.

Klang Dry Bak Kut Teh
Restaurant Lai Choon Bak Kut Teh, always packed

Dry Bak Kut Teh is a rather recent phenomenon. The biggest difference is, obviously, the lack of the herbal soup in the claypot. The ingredient is also stripped to the basic, basically just pork and some vege (more for the color contrast than anything else,) simmering in the claypot with the sauce that looks alot like dark soya plus diced garlic and chili. The soup that made so many addicts out of us is not totally lost, but rather served seperatedly, usually in a bowl.

Klang Dry Bak Kut Teh
as usual, we finished everything and left the cleaning lady with little to do

We ordered 2 claypots of 2-portion dried Bak Kut Teh for the four of us. The meat was great, tender and full of flavor from the “dry” sauce. However, I would suggest an order of a claypot of dry and original Bak Kut Teh each so that you get some variations, the dry bak kut teh does overwhelm the taste bud after a while due to it’s concentrated sauce, and the accompanying soup might not be enough.

Give it a try, I’m sure you’ll like it. This particular restaurant is somewhere behind Klang Parade. However, my geographical sense of Klang is so bad I don’t want to draw a map that confuses everyone, including myself. hehe. Cheers!

    […] One of our favorite weekend brunch meal is the Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶), being a fan of the malaysian invented dish, we constantly try out new places in an effort to find the best there is. Other places reviewed including the one at Jalan Ipoh Ban Lee, Sungei Way Ah Sang, and Klang Lai Choon.

  11. […] It’s no secret that I am a fan of Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶), in fact, I have devoted a whole subcategory for this uniquely Malaysian dish. In recent years, some of the more imaginative bak kut teh restaurant owners have come up with the concept of dry bak kut teh, in addition to the traditional soup type. So far though, I have only tried one at Lai Choon, Klang. Until last weekend, when we spotted the Restaurant Bak Kut Teh Shun Heng 吧生顺兴(干)肉骨茶 at Aman Suria. […]
