Imbi Market (or Pasar Baru Bukit Bintang officially speaking) is fast becoming one of my favorite places for breakfast stop over. Today, we take a look at one of the more unique stalls within the market, bak kua bun (肉乾糆包).

Pork floss and bak kua (BBQ dried pork) bun used to be one of my favorite breakfast/snack dishes. When I was in high school there’s a mobile stall that often parked outside the side gate and I would sometimes have one right after school session is over. Unfortunately, there aren’t many such stalls here in Klang Valley, so I was rather happy to stumble onto this one.

There are three major ingredients available for your choosing at this stall – pork floss, bak kua, and eggs. The bun is by default, and the lady threw in a couple slices of cucumber for good measure too.

If you’re not a mathematics savant, here are the 8 combinations:

  • pork floss and bak kua bun – RM 2.50
  • pork floss and egg bun – RM 2.50
  • pork floos, bak kua, and egg bun – RM 3.20
  • bak kua and egg bun – RM 2.50
  • bak kua and bun – RM 2.00
  • pork floss and bun – RM 2.00
  • fried egg and bun – RM 2.00
  • bun only – RM 0.80

my breakfast had everything - bak kua, pork floss, and fried egg

Of course, I chose the one with everything for breakfast. The combination of pork flooss, bak kua, that one simple fried egg and the cucumber was most excellent and a great way to start the morning.

The stall is situated opposite the main walkway across from Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea area, so you can’t order from the famous Hainan tea stall unless you tapao over. Then again, the other coffee stall isn’t bad at all either.

Here’s the short video shot on the same day:
