Way back in 2005, just a few months after starting this blog, I ran out of things to write. Ideas came in, and the first one that I considered was to actually specialized on all things bak kut teh.

That idea was of course, a little too limiting, but it was the seed that eventually spawn this humble food blog. So there you go, a little bit of background that you most likely don’t care on a Friday. 😀

Friendship Bak Kut Teh at Taman Cheras

Anyway, bak kut teh remains one of my favorite Malaysian Chinese food. Today, I shall introduce this particular unassuming bak kut teh stall at Cheras that was one of Haze‘s regular dinner spots.

The bak kut teh stall is situated just a stone’s throw away from the biggest intersection in Cheras. Other than bak kut teh, the friendly female owner serves up really pork tripe soup that has a pretty good kick too.

The bak kut teh comes with all the usual ingredients – pork, fatty pork, liver, intestine, stomach, and like a lot of the more modern outlets – enoki mushroom too. While I can’t say that the soup is the best I’ve had, it quite decent, and I do like the extra spicy chili padi they serve.

If you eat here, make sure you order yau char kwai though. The lady source this from her ex husband and it’s really one of the best yau char kwai I’ve had with bak kut teh. Like a lot of places, you get to choose from oily or normal steamed rice.

While strictly speaking, this isn’t the best tasting bak kut teh, I do love going there for it’s ambiance and the warm and fuzzy feeling the owner always exude. The pork tripe soup and of course, the yau char kwai give more than good enough reasons to visit there too. (have yet to try the braised pork knuckle yet).

Friendship bak kut teh is open from evening till about 1am.

    I tried the food once, take-away affair. The food is mediocre to be frank.
    The soup is too clear for my liking, tasteless even.

    The meat, well, the lady shouldnt sell bah-kut-teh. She keeps the best part and gives you the worse. I ordered pig tail and she cuts the fat back-side part and tip for me and keeps the rest (the better part). Whatever for, beats me, maybe for her own consumption. The stripe is tough, dry and rubbery like.

    Surprised me to see this stall reviewed in your blog, it should be guttered.

      weird, cos my experience wasn’t at all the same as yours. but I do agree it’s not the best bak kut teh, i love their yau char kwai and pork tripe soup more.

            Yea, that’s the one. Was my fav for quite some time (so near my then-home somore) but after they moved out for a bit and back again, the taste just isn’t the same anymore 🙁

            Looking (well, not really la) for a good KL Style BKT to replace it. The one facing the LDP (same row as Yat Yeh Hing) is too salty for my taste.

    Never really tried this BKT before despite it’s very near my friend’s place. There’s also the famous Chee Cheong Fun in front of the 7 Eleven there as well…

      Yea… The Chee Cheong Fun in front of 7-11 is quite famous. The curry is not bad. But they increase their prices very often =(
