I did say I’m going to try many bak kut teh places in Klang, right? Well, here’s another one that we went to one fine afternoon after another round of painting work at the new house.
Lao Heong Bak Kut Teh, at the heart of Klang
Lao Heong Bak Kut Teh is located at the heart of Klang town by one of the busiest roads on Jalan Gelugor. If you’re turning from Federal Highway to Jalan Meru, you’ll pass by the area. The restaurant itself is converted from a residential unit with a large “garden area”, like many restaurants in this part of the country, with the typical BKT set up of boiling water on top of LPG tanks for tea making purposes.
fatty meat is my favorite when it comes to bak kut teh (especially kah wan)
Lao Heong servers clay pot style bak kut teh, and as with many places, you can specify the choice of meat (lean, trotter, big bone, small bone, kahwan, etc). The pot also comes with fuchuk (tofu skin), tofu pok, a bit of mushroom, and some lettuce.
As with most Klang bak kut teh, the pork was pretty tender and the soup packs quite a heavy dose of herbal taste, I can sense a strong hint of “tong guai” which I find quite enjoyable. Adding soup is a reasonable request here as well.
A pretty decent BKT and I would not hesitate to revisit, especially at after lunch hours whereby most other places are closed.
