To be honest, I probably wouldn’t have known about Hon Ki BKT if Ah Tao of the famous Ah Tao Seafood Bak Kut Teh was still alive.

When I was sharing the news of Ah Tao’s demise (RIP) with Zess over Chinese New Year, our Klang ahbeng who’s well versed with everything bak kut teh then mentioned that perhaps I should check out Hon Ki, a bak kut teh outlet that also makes a habit of adding seafood to the old fashion Klang dish, as his sister had good experience with it. So I did.

Hon Ki is a second generation bak kut teh eatery that has been in operation for over two decades, according to the proprietor, they have been serving seafood bak kut teh even during his dad’s time, so this is definitely not one of those “me too” sort of place that tries to jump on any bandwagon.

Situated at Persiaran Pulau Pinang (what a coincident for a Penangite) just opposite Klang Parade across Jalan Meru, the restaurant is converted from a corner lot terrace house with zinc roof, a basic set up that is sufficient and rather typical of Klang BKT scene.

The bak kut teh here comes in clay pots, choose the meat of your choice and you can have it dry, with soup, and of course, with a number of different seafood options to add on, such as fish fillets, prawns, abalone slices, or flower crab. Unfortunately, lala or kappa isn’t an option here.

Like other bak kut teh with seafood, the soup at Hon Ki very spicy as well, and this is done with loads of red chili padi, which I found slightly more convenient not accidentally chew one down, it also has a slightly different aroma and hotter compared to the green type. The additional complexity from seafood does give the bak kut teh an extra dimension, I love it.

Expect to pay about RM 40+ for two person if you have 1.5 portion of pork with seafood in it, flower crab gives the soup a stronger taste, while prawns were much less messy to eat. Try it!

  1. kekeke rosberg

    walau, the proprietor does not like Hong Kong people issit? keke…

  2. Ooh, looks a delicious bowl.

  3. The seafood one looks like there is no soy sauce in it, like Singapore bak kut teh. I would want to try that. We’re off soy sauce now – on a gluten free diet, my girl is sensitive to it and they have wheat in soy sauce.

  4. Bakuteh is great for carbo loading.. like just before running 42KM! hahaha

  5. Eh YY was my high school mate. #smallworld. Is she your Nuffnang’s nanny?
